Bute FC 2 - 0 South Street Spartans
Perfect start to the season. I don't think we could have asked for a better result. First Sunday league clean sheet in my 2 years! Solid at the back all game, so much so, that I didn't have to make a save. The back 4 won virtually everything in the air keeping the opposition in their own half for most of the 90 minutes.
Midfield really started to gel in the second half and we showed some real attacking threat. The improvement at half time was massive, and it was sustained throughout the rest of the game, keeping the intensity high from the kick off.
I could praise virtually everyones performance individually, but a few special mentions go to:
Miles & Viswan were an excellent partnership, tracking back to break up play and starting us moving in the right direction
Ben for reffing the game before, then tirelessly running up and down the pitch like a coordinated Stephen Ross (sorry) and not being beaten once.
Ajay for putting in a big tackle with his body on the line (I'm looking at you Faris)
Man of the Match: Alasdair - I can't remember him losing a single aerial battle, he passed the ball out from the back with confidence and played as part of a new back four and kept an extremely rare sunday league clean sheet. #Elliottwho?
Dick of the Day: Sam - apparently this weekend was it was his "birthday" and yadayada he didn't show up because he had to change his tampon
