Much like our roofing depots we has a professional attitude , team tactics and positions.

ATC (1)-(4) AJW
We went 1 nil down after a wonder goal which took us all by surprise , we got back on level terms just before half time , 2nd half we tore them apart like soft bread
Nuff Road (2) – (3) AJW
These were a dangerous outfit in the league, they had 1 really good player , we knew we had to mark him out of the game
We went 1-0 up, just before half time they scored to make it 1-1
They went 2-1 up to our dismay , we made it 2-2 , we quickly made it 3-2 and held on for the win
Many hugs between us at the final whistle
I will say that everyone was brilliant all day, great team effort and thank you to AJW for allowing us to enter a team.
