BRADING TOWN 2 v 3 Binstead COB.
( Vale & Larbalestier )
Team: Hunt Woodnutt Burns Knowles Bennett Woodburn Woodhouse Oatley Vale Collins Cook.
Subs: Larbalestier. (used)
Brading Town Man of the Match: Todd BENNETT.
After a bright start, during which we scored a great team goal, we went out of the Gold Cup, losing 2-3 to Binstead.
They were excellent on the day and thoroughly deserved to go through. Their young side worked very hard, with the added class of Scott Jones in the side, they were always a threat.
At the moment, I am hugely disappointed. It is becoming increasingly harder and harder to raise a team on a Saturday. With several key players missing again, it didn’t help. Across all three teams today, we had 34 available!!! We have 60 signed players!!!
Commitment to the club and to the managers needs to improve, Keith, Reece Biedler and myself, work very hard trying to organise the club. Sadly, players seem to be unavailable very easily nowadays. Maybe things have changed, I would have to be injured to miss a game of football when I played……things need to change !!
Thank you to all the lads that put the effort in today.
( Just putting it out there …. The first team are in need of linesman for next week, Geoff Ruck who has done a brilliant job covering the injured Pete Hudson, is not available. I’m not holding my breath but if someone could help out, I would greatly appreciate it. )
Also a few players would be nice !!!
