Changes were made successfully tonight to a non-contact style of play with the players quickly adapting. The ball most certainly was put to work with crisp passing and movement the winner tonight. Very few challenges were made and none of a dangerous nature which was what the majority of players wanted.
This seemed to suit a few players with George Muir hitting the back of the net after a long drought of scoring. It also suited the style of Jim whole rattled off a quick 7 goal hat-trick! The man was on fire and not a shot going over the fence either. There were calls for an introduction of drug testing as a few players came to terms that every dog has his day!!
It was good to see players embrace the new style of play so quickly but a few players still managed to fall over as if they’d been hacked. Simulation was suspected but the ref was having none of it.
Hopefully we can continue this style of football and the guys who are not yet sold on it can come to terms with it over the next coming weeks.
