Playing in Division 1 meant these guys were always going to find it hard to get a win. They surprised everyone with long spells of equal possession and opportunities against the only three teams to finish in Div 1 for both tournaments so far.
After looking like they could shock the crowd and opposition with a goal there was short periods when they'd concede 3 or four goals in quick succession only to re-establish themselves.
I didn't see a lot of these guys but every time I looked I found them camped in the opposition half and dominating play. Playing in Division 2 should have meant these guys had a tough time but the lads performed well enough to finish second in the group.
These boys played hard and appeared to have a great time regardless of the results. Attacking play was far better thanks to the attacking role introduced but the lads couldn't put enough balls in the opposition goal to get a win.
Conor is the Head Coach of the Bishops Cleeve Colts U8's Rovers and United Teams. The 2018-19 season will be his second in charge and he's keen to help the boys push on from the huge improvements shown in 2017-18.
