Thursday 7th September 7pm at Grimsby Town Hall. ? ? ?

The Bears rattle Magpies.  

This was not the match Magpies anticipated. ?The Bears had them rattled. ?With only a goal between them, the result was in doubt until the last kick. ?The Bears will rue 2 own goals that cost them a place in the FA National Futsal Finals at Sheffield. ?

Nicol Magpies had players missing, that’s would be unfair to The Bears. ?When questions were asked of them to many Magpies players went into shells. ?There was no leadership on or off the field. ?

When The Bears caused problems, ?Magpies, chased hard, talked loud, but failed to solve the probel infront of them.
This has to be worrying from a team that are heading towards tougher more consistant opposition at Sheffield.

Performances like this will see Magpies making an early exit from Sheffield.

From a neutrals viewpoint it was a great game that could have gone either way. ?6-5 to Magpies, a moral victory for The Bears.

Elsewhere, ?Catalonia nearly recover from 0-4 at half time to Springway Eagles. ?A change of tatics saw Catalonia pull back to 4-3.

Magpies II almost pull off a form upset against inform Auditoriom. ?One goal decided match.

Babtist Church had pace to burn in the team, Thorpe park haddened. ?Score 13-1

Expressions have been reading match reports; the defence tightens to keep Hemswell down to 5. ?Score 9-5

All Stars Legends 7 Everglaze 5. ?Everglaze played the best I have seen them in this game. ?Getting closer to recording wins rather than losses.

Futsal Premier League North Conference

FC Grimsby crash to York University 4-2. ?York were simply the better team. ?

Having 4 or the first choice starting line unavailable is the only excuse Grimsby can offer.

Drawing 3 fouls to 0 in 5 minutes Grimsby had to draw the next 2 fouls and York would have been unable to tackle for fear of conceding 10 meter penalties. ?

What did Grimsby do? ?They gave York 5 fouls and 2 10 meter free shots. ?Aidy Clark conceding 4 of the first 5 fouls. ?How long does it take players to learn the levels of tolerance the referees have set?

With under par performances from to many players Jamrs Archer and Danny Hornigold were left on a 2 man mission to chase and retrieve the game. ?

Keeper Dean Gladwell saved everything asked of him, excepting goals when he was exposed by unacceptable defending errors.

For the second game this season FC Grimsby have lost a game when they have outnumbered their opponents scoring chances 2 to 1. ?

Even when awarded 2 free 10 meter shots in the second period Shaun Gladwell missed the target followed by James Archer not testing the keeper.

York were a sound, well organised team that new when and how to support each other and will cause other teams a few problems.
