It has been a pretty positive start to the season for us at United with some very strog results and performances. We have progressed in one of the cup competitions with a win against Stamford Lions - a team from a higher league. The performance was outstanding that day and the result was deservedly ours. In the league we have seen some high-scoring games with some excellent individual performances and team work.
It has been good to the see the team take shape in the new league and players are beginning to come more into their own. We are seeing the luxury of having multiple goal scorers which is proving a problem for teams on occasion. Our goals are coming from dead -balls, open play and individual efforts so up front we are working hard. Our midfield has been commanding and has been an excellent engine room for the team. In defence we are adapting to the loss of our captain through injury but the performances have been solid throughout.
The league will be tough this season and our next two matches are against two of the teams fighting for the top spot along with ourselves. It will be an interesting few weeks ahead!
