The Jags were on the road again for another tough encounter against a physical well organised Boldmere side. After a sluggish start the previous week the Jags were out the blocks early hitting Boldmere with several well worked attacks culminating in an all round display that really should have seen them several goals to the good and the game over by half time. Josh Hill opened his league account with a well taken goal from the edge of the box and it was a lead that was more than deserved but the Jags couldn’t capitalise on what was a completely one sided first half.
The second half saw the Falcons with more of the ball and it wasn’t long before Josh Price was called into action in the Jags goal having been a spectator for the first twenty minutes. The Jags were still creating chances of their own but a combination of last ditch defending and good goal keeping kept the score delicately poised until a wicked deflection left Price rooted as the ball trickled into the back of the net and the Falcons were level.
The Jags reacted well and continued to attacked but Boldmere ‘parked the bus’ once they were on level terms and there was no way through for the Jags offensive maneuvers and the game finished all square. Stand out performances at the back from Man of the Match Ricky Harrison, the fast improving Brandon Garrett and Max Goodier who worked tirelessly up front without reward.
The boys are working hard in training twice a week and their dedication and hard work is starting to show on the pitch, Sunday finally sees a home fixture against pre season favorites Lichfield City Boys.
