Three really good games with some quality football played by both teams. It was probably the intensity of Marlboro’s football that stopped Maindy getting into their rhythm for any sustained periods of play. In the end this just gave Marlboro Blacks the edge over a talented Maindy team with some really skilful players.
The quality of the games was testimony to the commitment of all the boys, playing under conditions that were far from ideal. The pitch they played on was not the best and had to be marked out with cones. It hadn’t been possible to set up proper goals as neither of the Llanederyn home teams turned up. It also looked as though there was no show for the Llanederyn under 8s. On the face of it the no-show from the Llanederyn teams was probably because they were aware of the poor state of the pitches. In such circumstances it would be helpful to have some form of communication to save the possibility of wasted journeys and disappointing the boys.
As it was the Marlboro and Maindy boys did themselves proud with some scintillating football all-round.
