Well a win today would have put us second from bottom but it wasn’t to be.
That said there were lots of victories all over the pitch and massive steps taken.
3-1 down at the break and a big half time shake up, into the second half and shock hit home as we went 4-1 down.
A few heads dropped but what happened next has made my day, possibly one of the best halves of football I have witnessed from the Colts.
Miraj scored with what would have been an awesome cross, 4-2 and the comeback was on.
Not sure when Faversham scored the 5th but it did not stop our march.
Ben scored his second of the day and had a great game.
Bailey scored his first ever goal for any club.
Closing minutes and a penalty awarded to the Colts, which to be honest I didn’t watch but Liam slotted it home to level the score 5-5.
That’s how the game ended but look at individual and team victories today.
As a team our heads didn’t drop and we battled hard to get some goals.
Liam had a moment but battled with himself and came back out to score an important goal.
Alfie and Olly both helped out at the back and made a massive difference.
Miraj came back to help out and scored.
Ben put some power behind his shots and found goal, twice.
Luke R and Cade teamed up really well in the centre.
Luke C bossed the middle of the park and did not give up once!
Deano kept the ball alive down the right.
Lewis came back from a poor first half to be outstanding in the second.
Dan played a great distribution game from goal.
Bailey kept forward pressure on and scored as a result.
Curtis played some great line balls and did not panic.
MOTM today was a player who has changed so much this season and has made a big difference in the last 3 games, a massive improvement and one that i am thankful for, Ethan, well done mate.
Some of the best football was played today, one two passes, great link up play, great width opening the pitch up, high pressing in the second half.
I thought I would be upset if we didn’t win but today feels great, much happier with the draw and the way our team has fought.
Thank you, today you are all legends in my eyes and remember New Romney could only manage a draw with Faversham 2 weeks ago!
Have a great weekend Colts Dunk
Excellent final league game for the U12s
The objective before the game and expressed to the boys was to go out there and end this season on a high after what has been a challenging year which has seen players as well as managers come and go, but fortunately for all the boys did not disappoint. I feel that even Wye felt the same and the first half in truth became a tense closed showing with little chances for either side being created with most of the action happening in the middle of the park. The most notable efforts came from Wye who seemed to settle into the game quite quickly but as is the case for every good team the defence held strong and Artjom in goal continued his form to give us every chance. It was evident throughout the first half that the experiences from the last few games are still playing on some players mind and certain key issues which have troubled us were dealt with in a efficient manner. By hook or by crook the first half ended goalless, although Wye from what I could hear believed they deserved more. The boys made a decision during half time that they were going to go out there in the second half and give it all they have. The mentality that they had in these opening couple of minutes, if seen in every game this season, would have produced many more positive results and the play became much more open and creative spending most of the time attacking putting the opposing goalkeeper under alot of pressure. This proved to be a success when the consistent Freddie took the ball down from a big clearance from the back, playing a lovely one two between himself and Callum before putting his left foot straight through the ball going under the keeper to give Bromley Green a well deserved 1-0 lead. The euphoric feeling that this gave the boys made them lose their focus and due to this, Wye took the restart and within the next few moments they began bearing down on Artjom’s goal and from a cross and a header managed to get the ball into the net to make it level again this time at 1-1. The remainder of the second half was end to end with Bromley trying hard to take the lead again but both goalkeepers managed to make some terrific saves and subsequently the game ended at 1-1 much to the disbelief of all as it could have been 4 or 5 each if not for Artjom and his opposite number. As can be expected, the MOTM was a difficult decision to make this week due to all the effort given but due to his individual performance and courage coming out for the ball on many occasions, I gave it to Artjom who recently has proven his worth in recent weeks much to the admiration of myself and the players around him. The next few weeks will be dominated by the technical side of the game in training and I would appreciate if all could attend if possible. Thank you all for you consistent support, James.
