Stubba assists with two!
I take the blame for todays defeat. Why? Well, not for the on the pitch theatrics, but because I spent a couple of seasons trying to get Washington CC to join the WCFL. They’re actually doing very well. Unbeaten and at the top of the league.
We were on a hiding to nothing. We were missing Murton, Pearson(s), Macca, Tim and rising star, Mark Muers. We managed to rope Dave Smith and Scott Smith in. Stubba also showed up and Titch made a return after missing two games. Dixon and Marky were also there.
First half was reasonable. We conceded early, but then had around three chances which were poorly executed. They then scored their second excellent goal.
Second half was hit and miss. Wayne Greenwell and Anth Langan took over tactical duties and will be doing so from now on. I’ve said plenty of times that pulling the squad together and getting them there, plus arranging kit, etc. means that the tactical side of things really isn’t worked on. Both players want the role, so it should be interesting what ideas they come up with.
We conceded a third and fourth in quick succession. By now we were jaded. After the fifth, Titch got one on his tally with an assist from Stubba. Stubba then got walloped and Gourlay put away the penalty. Our only highlight of the second half was the excellent and battling performance from Scott Smith in defence.
The final score was 6-2. Poor and disappointing, but half expected with such a threadbare squad.
