Sunday 6th of March ; Cramond FC vs North Merchie 07s (away)
It was a fine sunny morning at Davidson Mains Park on Sunday 6th March when North Merchie 07s played Cramond FC in their very first fixture in the ESSDA Maradona Division. We’ve got high hopes for this team and all I asked them to do was pass the ball to each other, emphasising that the performance was more important than the result. All the players applied themselves from the first whistle and had the bulk of possession, most of it in the Cramond half, and it was the excellent Ashley who got her team off the mark within 5 minutes. Merchie doubled their lead before half team and kept it thanks to some good, brave goal-keeping by Euan, After the break they really began to click, with Jack bagging a couple, the tricky Rory getting on the score sheet, along with Lachlan, Max and Campbell to see Merchie win 11-1. It was very pleasing to see all the players play in different positions, with Zach especially working hard to win and pass the ball, and every one of them can be proud of the way they played. Of course there’s much to come but I couldn’t fault their attitude today. Training in the hall over winter improves touch and makes them all move the ball quickly and compete and they took that on to the grass superbly. Well done team.
