Sutton Rebels entertained Craven Dynamo’s who had made the trip down from Ingleton for our second league game of the season in the Dales Friendly League. Two very evenly matched teams contested a hard fought League game in excellent conditions.
In game 1 which was our all-important league game we ran out 2-1 winners. Our goals came from the prolific Lewis Mackenzie and Charlie Best who both had outstanding games linking up really well. This assisted us greatly during sustained periods of pressure from our visitors. Moment of the match for me was when Alex Gregory released Lewis Mackenzie with a sublime pass on half way. Lewis unleashed a cracking shot which was brilliantly turned around the post by a young lady in the visitors goal called Ezmi. For a minute I forgot this was under 7 football. Superb! Adam Edwards continued his fine form and was as solid and reliable as ever at the back.
A special mention goes to Louis Jones who enjoyed an excellent debut for the Rebels making some really important tackles. Louis just pipped Lewis and Charlie to man of the match for his act of sportsmanship when he volunteered to play for Craven who went down to 6 players due to injury during our second game. Well done Louis. This did come back to bite me however as Louis continued his fine debut netting for our visitors during our second game as they ran out 2-0 winners! Thank goodness this one was a friendly.
Thanks to our visitors and all friends and family who came to support the boys and girls.
Finally a big well done to all the players for their effort and commitment.
