Burnt By The Sun
We said meet direct at “The Sun” and three quarters of the side went to Malta to the Lost and Found music Festival, Europe’s largest SUN soaked music event . . We tried before Christmas to get the Easter Saturday off knowing the situation without luck but when Lee Stedman found himself without fourteen of his squad available it really was going to be an impossible ask against the inform Sun team.
Unfortunately Easter and bank holidays are expected match dates at this level and it’s something that needed to be addressed in the new forming squad, it’s not local league rules.
Jets were a little unlucky to go one down after just a few minutes when stand-in keeper Dave Jacks got good hands to the shot but was disappointed to see the ball hit the post on the far side and go in.
Unlucky yes but the three that followed were not, from a defending point of view they were very poor and at 4-0 down in the first quarter of an hour it was a dreadful outlook for the remaining seventy-five.
In fairness to Jets, they pulled themselves together and whilst not a serious threat to the result they contained much better and actually pulled one back by John Smith 4-1 in the second half.
Jets showed a lot of team spirit and held it at 4-1 until stoppage time when the fifth was added which again from Jets point of view was disappointing as they just deserved some rewards for the effort, and by them lads for actually turning up and helping the club knowing so many had gone missing.
Jude Bell was Jets man of the match.
Meanwhile our other team in the Sun were showing their own team spirit: –
The only question is if we will get any of them back fit and well for the midweek cup tie!
