Can Red’s make a seismic shock wave and go top???????? This was question when fixture went on web.

Red’s the first, in my memory, team ever to leap from bottom half to top in one giant step. That’s advantage of Ladder leagues, big changes can happen quickly. Don’t understand why they are not used more often. All Stars had bare squad, Red’s two substitutes. Game plan had to be ‘full on press’ on the five; Red’s did this brilliantly, playing with added verve when they won the ball. 

Think that at last Red’s have bought into notion that defending is more important than attacking, defend right and chances will

Grimsby Diamonds vs. Lion’s – A match with two winners

Lions

The last two Monday’s Grimsby Diamonds, Under 16s League leaders, have challenged themselves by playing Lions (Under 19s futsal Champions), the result a win for both camps.

Lion’s team, given the age and experience gap won both games. This was expected, but not by significant margins. I do not mention the scores as they are not relevant. What was relevant was a younger team wanting to challenge themselves. Winning regular should be a signal to a caring alert coach that his team needs a greater challenge. Clearly this was why Diamonds was playing Lions. Lions importantly accepted the matches understanding that the learning process for them would be limited.

Gy Diamonds

Did Diamond’s gain from losing two matches. Hugely I would argue. I must add I was referee for both matches. Lions included two players that have played FA Super League futsal for Loughborough University (Brendan Braithwaite and Callum De-Grouchy) and a third player Ethan Orr who has just completed two years on the Grimsby Town BTEC course. A core of players trained in the tactics of futsal. These three players are surrounded by players who have quickly copied their tactics and processes. Diamonds are alert bright players, being on court with such opposition will have fuelled their minds with ideas to copy and personal positional improvements they may be able to adjust to benefit themselves and the team the next match they play.

Wednesday the Lion’s team showed the level they have graduated to by beating the highly experienced Me2 Futsal team in the men’s’ senior league. Lions are the first team that have travelled through the leagues from under twelve futsal to senior.

Elation to Despair in space of Two Games

Lions team that destroyed Corinthians. Lions are in their new kit purchased with vouchers from winning Monday ‘B’ League

Last week I left YMCA elated that YMCA Corinthians had beaten Payzone by two clear goals after being 3-0 behind at half time. This week no such glories, just a horrible deflated feeling after crashing to Lions. With a starting line up that included 4 of last weeks heroes I was secure in knowledge that at least team would be competitive. That said I was aware Lions had brought in Callum De-Gruchy, Loughborough University star used to playing in FA Super League matches. Then again Lions goalkeeper was not playing so maybe that should equal things out? How wrong could I be, Lions started on fire, Corinthians was on the back foot, five minutes in matters got worse as we lost Josh Carver-Mill to injury. Damage limitation was all I could hope for, and we did not do that to well. But, credit to team we did get a consolation goal. Final score? Please its about participating not the score.

Back to the drawing board.

Ps: I should have mentioned this was best Lions team performance I have seen in the many years I have known them. It was futsal at its very best.
