|Match of the Day,
SCHOOL 7 OLD BOYS 0
From the Old Boys'
point of view the soccer match against Prescot
School was very disappointing. The School
players, however, had every reason to
congratulate themselves on a clear victory which
they fully deserved They played attractive,
Boys, albeit under the disadvantage of not
previously having played as a unit, were over
elaborate and rarely threatened the School
goalkeeper. In addition, poor covering in defence
allowed too many openings.
It was also
disappointing that several Old Boys who were due
to play failed to put in an appearance, thus
letting down the side. Others, who submitted
their names too late but expected automatic
selection would be well advised to attend the
annual reunions in order to ascertain which
activities are to take place.
like to thank those players who did turn out: at
least they were tough enough to accept defeat in
a sporting manner.
