Match report:

VMFC2 v Gorton

Sunday 28 October 2012


The 2nd team were up against it before their afternoon game against Gorton had even kicked off. A number of absences and late drop-outs meant that a bare eleven would take on the team that had trounced them 7-0 a month earlier. However, there was a good workrate throughout the squad and the shame was that Gorton only had to capitalise on mistakes to score their goals, rather than have to work hard for them.

After going into the break 3-0 down Village at least rebounded enough to draw the second half 1-1 with Steve Holmes converting Pete's cross from the left but the 4-1 scoreline reflected the difference in quality between the two sides.

There's no doubting that it's going to be a tough season for the seconds. The quality of the league has improved and with the loss of several players to the first team in the past twelve months it's going to be rough ride at times. However, what was great to see in this match was the positive attitude maintained throughout, and if the passing and movement can continue to improve from match to match it will put the team in a stronger position to move forward in the future.
