Greg Grabs The Winner!
Clacton H4L A Squad:
previous tournament Clacton had several absentees and were a man down so had to
borrow Fred Pennick from Colchester H4L for some of their games. Tully was able
to make this tournament though and Alex Seymour was back from injury but this
time Stefano Carnevale, Kyle Thompson and Robbie Ratcliffe were all absent. Kyle's
absence was a serious issue, as he is Clacton's first choice goalkeeper, but
luckily he announced it several days before and so Carolyn asked Craig Organ to
play for the team. Craig played for Clacton last February and was given a lot
of gratitude by the rest of the squad, because if he hadn't come Harry would
have been the goalkeeper and Clacton would have been a man down. Everyone had a
good game although Craig didn't have much work to do and Greg switched from
defence to attack, scoring all of Clacton's goals.
Palsy Disability 4 Sport 3-0 Not
didn't attend the December tournament and weren't attending this one either. It
was probably an automatic 3-0 victory, as that's what the attending teams are
usually credited with when a team doesn't attend.
Clacton thrashed Porters 4-0. Clacton pressed hard for a goal, but neither side
found the net so the game ended goalless.
Healthy 4 Life A 1-0 Greg
played Col H4L in December it ended 0-1, which was Clacton's first and still
only defeat of the season. Both teams fought very hard and it looked like this
game was also going to end goalless but fortunately Greg, having a trial
upfront managed to find a late winner, scoring his first goal of the season.
Colchester Disability 4 Sport 2-1 Greg x2
started this game having lost their other 2 fixtures. Despite the defeats they
broke the deadlock early on and Clacton found themselves behind. However, knowing
there was still at least 10 minutes left on the clock, Clacton kept their heads
up and a few minutes later Greg equalised for Clacton. Once they were back on
level terms, Clacton's confidence rose as they were under less pressure and so
soon after equalising Greg found a winner.
