Pride Park Juniors v Chesapeake
After beating Chesapeake in our last meeting,we knew they would out for revenge,now if I was to list all the e-mails,phone calls,texts that were made regarding this fixture afterwards,then I would still be writing this report out come Christmas time,what happened on and off the pitch,by members of the opposition should never take place on a football field,intimidation of officials before a ball had been kicked,shouting for players to be handed yellow cards and people walking on to the pitch during breaks in play,we're just a few incidents I can mention,it was a great shame because some of the football played by both teams was fantastic,the game was evenly poised at 1-1,with Kyle scoring a beautifully taken goal,when the referee gave into crowed intimidation and handed Carlo a yellow card,now the challenge was late,but at this level,a yellow card? Never,and the cheers that followed the decision were a disgrace.
Understandably Carlo was distraught and the lads felt for him too,Carlo's a strong lad,but would never intentionally hurt anyone and this decision definitely had an effect on the boys.
Chesapeake went on to win the game 4-1,but it left a very sour taste in the mouth,if that's how teams want to win games,fine,but it's not for me and made my views known to the opposition and officials afterwards,little did I know,having an opinion and airing your views can be finically very expensive.
I then realised we still had a league meeting with Chesapeake left this season. :huh:
Pride Park Juniors 1 v 4 Chesapeake
On a footballing note, a very good performance by the boys,that I feel,in a different atmosphere,could well of seen a more favourable result.
