Managers Update - 12th November 2007
A well supported match saw our league campaign continue with our home fixture against Jaguar-Daimler. Knowing that a win would put us ahead of the Jag in the table gave us an added incentive to put our Cup defeats behind us, and that is what we did. A lot of effort throughout the squad added three points to our tally and moved us into fourth just behind The Hub on goal difference and with games in hand against the top two teams. Our league campaign is in great shape but we still have a lot of work between now and the end of the season. Next weekend we take on Woodlands Reserves away in Bedworth. Another win is what we need to maintain our momentum ahead of taking on second placed Christ the King the following week.
Coventry Alliance Division 3 - Brinklow 2 : 0 Jaguar-Daimler
10th November 2007
Report from Gordon Betts:-
Our second meeting with Jaguar-Daimler in a month required a Brinklow win to keep our league campaign on target – and that is exactly what we got. Masses of commitment and effort from everyone in yellow and blue together with a spirited team talk from Martin did the job and put 3 points in the bag. A slightly hesitant start gave The Jag an early penalty, but an excellent save and quick reactions to stop the follow up denied the visitors. A few minutes on and we got our composure to produce good attacking football, putting pressure on the Jag keeper and back four. Poor light did not help but it seemed that all our appeals for handball were waved away which disturbed our flow at times. However, our work rate remained high and was rewarded with goals from Mark Woodward and Chris Bedder before and after half time respectively. A First Team debut for Alex Olner was prematurely ended by injury, cruelly denying him the chance to fulfil the promise that he displayed in the opening ten minutes. Hopefully he will be back in the starting line up soon. A great team effort all round with MOTM going to Dale Huddlestone for his penalty save which earned a clean sheet for the team.
