Turned up at Sun Sports to play a team three divisions above us in the Aubrey Cup.

This was a challenge for us and we played pretty well in the first half. The game started quite evenly with most the threat from the opposition coming from the wide areas. We went in at the half 2-0 down and had given a pretty good account of ourselves.

The second half started and Amirali was obviously fouled in the penalty area which should have been a penalty. A poor decision from the referee to play on and not give the foul led to the opposition going down the other end and finishing clinically. 3-0 down but it could have easily been 2-1 which would have given us a foot in the game.

Unfortunately our fitness levels dropped in the last 20 minutes and this led to the opposition taking their chances. The score ended 8-0, however there were a lot of positives to take from the game and lots to learn. Onwards and upwards.
