“Today is September 20th. It’s my 22nd birthday, and what better way to celebrate than at the pub with Harry having a few pints following our 0-1 victory against Wells? It was a good match. Quite nerve-wracking, if I’m being completely honest. Our league performances have been less than stellar, and the FA Vase round saw us lose 3 players to injuries lasting at least 2-3 weeks or more, with the longest a fractured arm that our physio reckons will put “Kiz” Hamer out of the reckoning for at least 5-6 weeks. Considering he’s pushing for our starting striker and captain’s spot following weeks of poor performance, it’s certainly a loss. Our club doesn’t have the depth to deal with so many injuries at one go.
“Training is going as well as it can be, considering we only have one day of general training each week. It makes it hard for the team to gel and get used to our tactical arrangements with a competency that will push us to the next level. It’s lead to more than a few losses in situations where we should have won. Our team is more than capable of getting it to the goal, but they are having trouble actually finishing, and it’s more than frustrating when it’s coupled with the defense’s penchant for giving away fouls in the penalty box.
“Despite our expectations of first, we wrap up the day of my birth in 9th in the league with 3 wins, 1 draw, and 3 losses with many instances of points dropped.
