OWFC Newsletter No. 1624
Another week closer to the kick-off of for the new season saw the 5s and 6s play their first pre-season games, in which Jamie Moniz (5s) and Ed Adams & James Eglon (6s) made their managerial debuts. Both games were 7 goal thrillers and finished with away victories for the OWFC sides against Old Tiffinians. You'd have thought the 5s were coached by Tony Pulis given the dangers they posed from set pieces, making a number of them count in their 7-0 win. The 6s meanwhile took inspiration from Liverpool and Arsenal, quick and exciting on the attack but poor at the back, just about holding out for a 4-3 victory.
Elsewhere the 1s lost to Merton 2-1, even though they could, and perhaps should, have won 8-0 according to Jamie Parkinson. The 2s were on the end of a 9-2 hammering and the hands of Old Wokingians. While the 3s ran out 3-0 winners against Merton.
