Essex Soccability League September 2015
Tom Nicks It
Clacton H4L A
the title for the 3rd time in 4 seasons last season, but super striker Robbie
Ratcliffe had been forced to retire through injury. Midfielder Stef Carnevale
couldn't make the tournament and Greg hadn't fully recovered from injury.
However, Tony Tully had joined H4L from Tendring Mental Health in the summer.
"Tully", by which he is known, was Tendring's star player last
season, and Tendring the runners-up in the league, though Tendring weren't
participating in the league this season. Alex, who hadn't played for Clacton
for over 2 years, had also come back to Clacton from Colchester and partnered
Greg in defence as Tom had been moved up to midfield. Ronnie had also been
moved from Clacton B and so as Clacton had 1 sub, substitutions were made in
games by coach Adam, and players moved around. Players were still allowed to
come back on after going off and the games 15 minutes straight.
managed to score 3 goals, but there were only 10 goals scored throughout the
entire tournament and Clacton were the only team to concede none, keeping clean
sheets in all their games. Clacton nearly only came out 3rd in the tournament,
but a late goal by Tom in their final game brought them out top. All of the
Clacton squad put out impressive performances.
also still question over who is to replace Robbie up front. Tully prefers
midfield, Stef prefers to assist goals, until today Tom played all his games in
defence, and whilst Harry and Jordan have had careers as strikers in the past,
they haven't played up front for a long time.
Disability 4 Sport 2-0 Tully x2
CP are a new
team in the league this season. Tully made a fantastic debut as it wasn't long
until he gave Clacton the lead and doubled it soon after.
4 Life A 0-0
There was a possibility
that Clacton might have an advantage in this game as Colchester had played in
the previous fixture. However, there wasn't really much difference between the
teams. Ronnie got injured in the game and so there were no subs for the
remaining two fixtures.
Porters A 0-0
also kicked off with Porters having played in the previous fixture. Clacton
were the more threatening side but neither side found the net. Alex also picked
up an injury but was still able to continue.
4 Sport A 1-0 Tom
a 30 minute break from the fixture list and Alex managed to shake off his
injury. From how the results of other fixtures had turned out, it was clear
that victory was vital for Clacton in this game or they wouldn't get off to a
very good start. Harry had a shot from the left and Tully hit the crossbar, but
it looked set be a hat-trick of no score draws for Clacton. However, Clacton
won a late corner. Jordan swung it in from the right and a header from Greg was
parried by the keeper. The ball fell to Tom, who poked it over the line from
