On: Thursday, 14 Nov 2019
Venue: at Home

Great match, very even, played in a great spirit and full credit to Levenmouth Lions ...they were very powerful up front....we were fast out wide. Our tackling was superb....I counted Andrew make at least 12 textbook tackles; there were almost certainly more ...3 of them try saving. He was deservedly man of the match. In terms of effort , passion and determination Chi was not far behind, both boys gave everything. Earlier in the season we would have lost this match ....as Mr Lilley the ref said, the boys showed great character. Special mention also to Ali...who carried more than any other player. Calum and Micah, who skilfully linked and led the team with Nathan ( capt) and provided the structure to our victory. Grigory who is lightning quick, Calvin who was a very strong presence on the wing. And then there was a champagne moment..... at the opposition 22 the ball comes to Lukas, he kicks cross field.. ( the coach holds his head in his hands, why have we kicked possession away? ) and then like a speeding train Patricio the wing arrives.... catches a perfectly weighted kick...almost fumbles... catches again and then ..with the old side step routine...skips past the winger...and dives in for a vital score. ( Coach then claims it was a training ground move! ). Special mention also to Dalton and Adrian...from CW and we’re tireless. Mikey...put in a very good shift as did Alvaro at full back, good tackles and good runs.

Wilson....thank you! Wilson Played the entire game for Levenmouth...in the spirit of the game we gave them one of our best, to make it a 13 v 13 game.

A really good team effort, ... and in that team Julius ( who we look forward to being back in action very soon) Kian, and Florian were very positive and helpful supports from the touch line.

Thank you Levenmouth for an excellent game played in the best traditions.
