In difficult conditions the Jags were up and at the Falcons with a bombardment of attacks that could have seen them several goals up by the mid way point of the first half, Man of the Match Brandon Garrett making his first start of the season was particularly bright and had several chances to give the Jags a deserved lead. Boldmere then completely against the run of play scored with their only positive attack of the first half, in previous years the Jags would have lost confidence and subsequently lost impetuous but as we have seen in previous games this season their resolve heightens and another wave of attacks worked the Falcons defence hard for the remainder of the first half.
The second half started in the same vein as the Jags pushed and pushed until justice prevailed, a slick well worked passing move between Ollie Cooper and Josh Hill saw a cool first time finish from Max Goodier and the Jags were level. All three points was now the only thing on the boys minds as they continued to pressure a stretched Falcons midfield and defence not to mention the mud covered goal keeper and with the clock ticking down and a draw looking the likely outcome a rare mistake at the back saw the Falcons nip in to score and steal all what can only be described as an undeserved three points!
The commitment and new found belief from the whole Jags squad is amazing and fantastic to see, despite only picking up a couple of points from their first four league games confidence is soaring and enjoyment levels are as high if not higher than they have ever been, once they have learned to win games you have to take your chances the points will start to come!
The Jags are this week boosted by the hugely positive signing of Sam New, Sam from Walsall has already had a whole season’s experience playing U10’s and with his former side now playing ‘grown up’ football he is keen not to loose out on his final season of mini soccer. Sam also has experience of playing and training with a local Premiership Club so his playing history is sure not only to help the Jags move forward but keep the current squad members on their toes!
