Clacton had no subs for this tournament as Stef Carnevale, Jordan Ovenden and Kyle Thompson were all unable to make the tournament for Clacton. There was a lot of concern of how Clacton would do as with goalkeeper Kyle out defender Greg was forced to play in goal for the first time since July 2012 meaning Tom Nicks had to partner Alex in defence. Striker Robbie Ratcliffe, although retired through injury is still on standby in case needed and was recalled to the squad.


Reece was making his debut for Clacton and played really well with Tully scoring in every game. The pitch was larger and so were the goals. The tournament went perfect for Clacton, with them winning all of their fixtures and conceding just 1 goal. The games were 12 minutes straight and after all of them had been played, coach Adam named Alex as his player of the tournament.



Games:

 

Cerebral Palsy Disability 4 Sport      2-0                   Reece, Tully


Reece got off to a fantastic debut and soon opened the scoring. It took a while until Tully scored but it was an amazing goal. Clacton won a free kick just outside D4S's penalty area. Greg usually takes free kicks but as he had the goalkeeper role Tully took it, who drilled a powerful shot into the top left corner. Greg wasn't troubled at all and had no work to do.



Colchester Healthy 4 Life                  2-1                   Tully, Reece


Colchester had lost their opening game but looked like they might win this one when they opened the scoring early in the game. Although Clacton were now under a lot of pressure, they kept their attitudes going and eventually Tully managed to find an equaliser. With Clacton now level, there was less pressure and towards the end of the game Reece managed to find a late winner.



Colchester Disability 4 Sport            A          1-0                   Tully


This was D4S's final game of the tournament and they had won all of their other games with clean sheets. Just as expected it certainly did turn out to be a challenge for Clacton who were also making it a challenge for D4S, although Clacton were more threatening. As a result of this Tully scored the only goal.



Porters A                                            2-0                   Robbie, Tully


Clacton beat Porters 5-0 last October though Porters had been making their league debut, and have improved over the course of last season. Robbie headed in the first and Tully added the second. However, towards the end of the game Porters were the more threatening but Greg was able to make all the saves that were required.
