DEBUT DOUBLE for ONWUBIKO

A satisfying Debut for Striker HARRIS ONWUBIKO who manages a brace to give the Bloods all 3 points

Following on from the two previous high quality displays from the RESERVES, you could be forgiven to expect a similar display.

Unfortunatly, This game was littered with poor technical displays from far too many players in the Red / Black Stripes.

A heavy pitch hampered the bloods usual quick style of play but it was not the main reason for the lack of quality on the pitch. Long Melford had set up to frustrate and physically intimidate (albeit fairly) the young bloods on every possible occasion. This is a tactic that must be understood from SWTFCs point of view.

It was a shame that the watching spectators were not given one of the Reserves better performances and to be fair, at the end of the game although they had won the match, there were a few players who were disapointed with there own personal display.

However, lessons were learned and the lads will learn that sometimes you can win ugly!

There were some half decent performances around the team. Onwubiko (for his debut goals), Charlie DAVIES was also relentless throughout the game. Youngster Joe BROWN, despite only playing 45 minutes came very close to landing the MOM for the bloods.

But due to his organisation skills, and the way he goes about helping the players around him, Jake Noble took the MOM award today.
