Monday highlight was an under 9s match when a player had to go off the opposition immediately gave them a player on side lines who they knew was a very capable player. Sporting generosity at its best.
Tuesday found me refereeing a match between Meglio (undefeated) vs. Eagles (second placed). Could Eagles break that 100% record? Not to be. Meglio raised their game up another notch to lead 6-0 with minutes left. In those closing minutes Eagles conspired to score two great goals. Meglio for the first time, please I am not being critical, moved from a very good five a side team to a team that ‘futsal’ written through it. There is a difference; a very good five a side team will never beat a futsal team on same court.
Wednesday capped everything, I was second referee officiating YMCA All Stars vs. Me2 in the Senior League. Me2 are a class team, no team beats them easily. My hope as the whistle went was that my Ym team would keep their heads up when Me2 opened a lead. To my surprise and pleasure team defended as a coordinated group, assisted by a sensational keeper, they then kept ball under pressure to open up their own scoring account. GTFC fans I hope will enjoy same pleasure at Lincoln Saturday when Town snatch late winner.
What to look forward to next week?
Banter between Vipers dads and a granddad has led to a Monday night game between both. Full futsal laws will apply. Watch this space, serious bragging rights to winners.
Tuesday will see Meglio u14s chance their arm, or should that be foot, against Clee Town u15s in a match arranged to test Meglio prior to their Barcelona tournament. Proper Preperation can Prevent Poor results.
Wednesday will have its usual head on collisions. Top four teams nothing between them, any can beat another on their day.
