Cup match. Saturday 6th February. Greenwich Powerchair Football Club v Sporting Club Albion Throstles. Waterfront Leisure Centre

This was a very difficult draw. Sporting Club Albion Throstles play in the National Premiership and are part of a bigger club that have excellent coaching networks.

We were one man down as our team captain, Kyle Alexander plays for another team in the National league. This forbids him for playing with GPFC. Rules are rules and just like any football league he cannot play for 2 teams! This had a negative effect on the existing team members, demoralised without their ace player, Kyle.

In the first half demoralised Greenwich created some chances but did not have their usual fighting spirit. Sporting Albion Throstles played really well, showing their superior skill as Greenwich gave them chances to create and score.

After a team talk from their coach Jessica, Greenwich did play some good football in the second half, passing and creating angles, overcoming their initial negative state. They put up a real fight, and made scoring against them much more difficult. It was a learning experience for the team. They need to treat it as a privilege to play such a good team and hopefully will have a standard to aim for. No shame in that. They worked hard. We know what we need to work on and will get started this week.

Final score  6-0

    Well done for taking part. Great experiences & lessons learnt all round for using in the future. You all know you can do it and have something to offer. You showed that in the 2nd Half. All the best for future games.
