However I am not easily discouraged and will continue to write it until I can see some stirring in the heart of the club to restore it to one of the best football and SOCIAL clubs in London.
To the playing side I watched the Reserve team go down to a disappointing defeat to fellow strugglers Old Stationers. To lose to a last minute goal after coming back from 3-1 down must have been hard to take but defensive errors cost us dear.
The 3rd XI team had a good win against a physical and noisy Merton team and the 4th XI continued their good form with a good win against Broomfield to remain top of the table, the 5th and 7th XIs lost their games but the winners of the JUG this week are the 6th XI who won away to Old Owens during which our fill in goalkeeper Jason Bush saved three penalties which must be some kind of record. It was good to see them return to the club to collect their jug which is the object of the exercise.
Graham Lewis was telling me that he attended a Youth Cup match between Arsenal and Torquay on Friday evening and both sides included former players from Norsemen Youth. It's good to know they are producing players of that standard hopefully a good number of those not quite up to that standard can find a home with us where they will enjoy good football, great facilities and an enjoyable day out.
Lets try and mark the upcoming two week winter break with an undefeated day next Saturday. COYN
