Last week our reserves travelled to Triabunna in a game that was a lot more important than it looked. Not only did we have 10 players out of the side but we also were without coach Kaine Menzie who had work commitments. We went up there with the focus of winning very well as we wanted to stay in touch with the top sides and percentage may play a part.
The guys were switched on and focused from the start and played a great brand of team football. The guys totally controlled the football and only allowed them 1 goal for the game which is a great effort.
Although everyone played a part there were some standout performers. Brodie Phillips was great all day through the middle and topped it off with 5 goals, Ricky Batt was fantastic all day, Paul Johnstone gathered possessions at will and Anthony Clifford played his best game for the year on a wing.
Special mention to Nathan ‘Wombat’ Senior who took over the coaching role in the absence of Kaine.
This week we take on Sorell which will be a tough game so we must be switched on and ready to go.
