Well it’s the second week of the DT Trophy Event.

The Tigers were sitting strong in joint 1st place in the league – Cresswell were 1st on goal difference and Great Barr Harriers were second all on six points – it was all to play for. We knew we were in for a tough game and we were right. It was one of the hardest games the Tigers have played for a long time, but thanks to Scott and Iron man Will, Cresswell found it extremely hard to break down the defence. When they did they tried their very hardest to score, having several cracking shots saved by the awesome Joe Timmins.   Joe was playing with future aspirations for the England squad; every save he made was world class – it was awe inspiring to watch.

Tom and Cole were on the wings again with Joe Rodder upfront. They were causing problems for Cresswell with some brilliant skills, but they were unable to dominate as in previous weeks due to Cresswell having a strong defence themselves. Kian and Arran were in midfield and played well together, passing the ball around with determination. The only goal of the game came down to a free kick. Arran stepped up to take it from 25yds – he only had eyes for the goal and hit a thunderous shot straight into the top of the net.


Not much to say about this game. It was end to end action with neither team being able to score. Joe T was still in England mode making some excellent saves. Iron man Will and Scott were solid in defence as usual. Kian and Arran played just as good in midfield as they did in the first game. Joe Rodda, Tom and Cole were playing well passing the ball round and showcasing their individual skills. Lewis came on and played brilliantly in defence showing real grit and determination. Armaan  also joined the lads on the pitch and played really well having a couple of chances on goal and getting stuck in.

Man of the match was awarded to Scott for his sheer determination in both games. A special mention to Joe T – you were brilliant, well done mate keep up the great work, I hope to see you playing between the sticks for England one day.

It was a bit of a wakeup call for the lads this week. But hard work and determination paid off in the end. We’re now TOP OF OUR LEAGUE. Well done lads keep roaring TIGERS!
