Manics achieve A* from first exam

So here we are at last after months of hard work the first game of the season. The A team have been training hard and really looking like they have started to gel.

Manics started the game with a 4-3-1-2 formation. Right from the kick off the Manics pressured the opponents all over the park forcing them to just kick the ball out of play or back to us. Good wing play from Steve Jones putting Nathan Plumbridge in on goal with a half volley flying just wide of the far post.
It did not take long before Plumbridge did score his first goal for the club with a clever finish just in side the area after a good team move 1-0.

The Manics really stepped up a gear after scoring dominating play with skipper Cole pulling the strings in midfield battling hard and bossing his team. Jack Clarke scored with a great strike to make it 2-0.

As hard as they tried Axfield could not unlock the Manics defence with Luke Phillips winning everything in the air as well as being composed with the ball at his feet. It was Phillips claming the assist for the next goal as his long ball caused allsorts of problems in the Axfield defence. Amidst the confusion the ball fell to Gary Sarney who coolly despatched the ball in to the corner of the goal, 3-0.

Just before the half time whistle Manics would strike again. A great move which included good play with player manager James “Ping” Blackman and left centre midfielder Ben Taylor delivering a fine ball to tricky forward Jack Clarke to register once again! 4-2



Manics wanted some of what Axfield were drinking, as they come out the second half like a different side. Axfield got their reward 5 minutes later with there striker clean though on goal lobbing the on rushing goal keeper 4-1. The Manics for their efforts could not get a grip on the game when Axfield slid another ball through to the same player who blasted the ball past Jason Graaff between the sticks 4-2. After an inspiring talk from the manager and captain the Manics came straight back in the game with Nathan Plumridge scoring from 5 yards out, a real poachers goal but it must be noted any one of four players could have put it in. Real good support for the front men 5-2

Hayward WAS the “biggest player on the pitch” and got stuck in straight away showing why he is pushing for a start. By winning his midfield battles and also showing his determination by chasing a long ball everyone else gave up on Hayward beat the keeper to nod home a well dissevered goal 6-2. The on form forward Jack Clarke braking away from the Axfield defence slotted home with a controlled curling effort (a great debut and a great hat trick) 7-2.

The Manics started to enjoy the game now using all players and getting Left wing back Nick Flemming and right wing back Wayne Woodman involved in attacks It was good link up play with Nick Flemming that got super sub Luke Carter away on the left wing beating two players with his pace and with a deft lob scoring what must go down as finish off the game 8-2.

That’s how it stayed a brilliant start for the Manics A, let’s hope it continues.
Man of the match hat trick hero Jack Clark wont think about playing so well in future after getting the feared yard of ale down the Bridge. haha!
