Match Report - HTFC (3) v St Osmunds (2)

Our final game of 2013 was certainly a tough one against St Osmunds, having beaten them 5-2 last time out we thought it would be a walk in the park. But we once again pulled out the stops to get another win 3-2 to add to our unbeaten run this season.

We thought we try our like with this game, changing our positions to a 3 - 5 - 2 and from a possession point of view this paid as we totally dominated the first half, peppering St Osmunds goal like a voting hotline at the Xfactor finals. But we could just not get a goal we needed to settle us, poor Damian had more fun watching the kids playing in the park than being in goal, I don't think he had a shot on target at him.

So we switched back to 4 - 4 - 2 for the start of the second half,  and St Osmund changed too by bringing out their goalie John Hagan who normally plays centre forward. This made a huge difference for them and they played much better in the second half and gave us a real run for our money. But we capitalised very early with a Carl (golden boot) Thomas double going 2-0 up in about 10 minutes. But as usual we like to make life hard for ourselves and we got to comfortable and let them back into it with John Hagan getting on the score sheet twice. But to be honest we always knew we would hold out as we took control again in the last 10 minutes and letting the beast Damian out on pitch to get his first goal for the club sealed it 3-2!

A well thought hard game on a fast, slippery Bank of England pitch - Well done to all we are still currently the invincibles for 2013 in the Dad's league.

Final note - It was great having 2 subs at the game and for everyone getting to the clubhouse to celebrate after the game, we definitely have to do that more. We play St Mary Mags Sunday 19 January 2014 time to be confirmed.
