Played a good Caister Roma Centurions in the NSYL shield final eventually running out 1 – 0 winners. We started off very well, in the opening minute a defence splitting pass from Connor set up Tom who was closed down very quick. Goalkeeper Jack M was his usual dependable self. William, Luke and Lewis all defended as a unit, with Evan sitting deep to set up many of our attacks and break up theirs. Jack C, Connor, Leon, Billy and Lewis D all passed well in midfield and closed down our opponents quickly. Tom was excellent up front, chasing down every ball, not giving the Caister defence a moments peace. Our goal came midway through the half front a huge clearance from Jack M, which Tom was onto in a flash, nipping in between the Caister goalkeeper and defender to calmly side foot the ball home. HT 1-0.
Second half Caister's attacks became more frequent, but we held good shape and cleared the lines well. Jack C became more influential in the middle of the park and produced an outstanding sliding block tackle to thwart the Caister captain from equalising. This was a very good game from two equally matched sides. NSYL MOM: Jack C
Considering all of the new faces this season, with many having no previous NSYL experience, winning both division 2 and the shield is an outstanding performance. Special thanks to the boys for their loyalty at the start of the season when we were struggling for players
