Youth Training Camp: Slovenia / Day Three
A nice little lie in today! Match on the afternoon so no busy early run. Breakfast was at 8 45 as normal and training will start at 10 30.
We had a lighter session because of the game we had in the evening. We trained for about an hour together doing some small sharp bits of possession and then we went into a bit of team shape before the starting team for the evenings game went off for an early lunch so they could prepare properly for the game. The others stayed out and buried Callum Preston for a bit longer.
The game started at 6 o clock against NK Marboir. For the first time since we had arrive it had rained cats and dogs for hours before kick off. When the game kicked off we started keeping the ball well but didn’t really penetrate as much as we would have liked. Lapes in concentration cost us two goals so we had to chase the game for then. The second half we bossed it. We had a few good chances to bring the game back but did not find that finishing touch. George Mcgee scored a banger to get us close but we came just short. All in all we weren’t far off it and it was a good effort from all the lads even though half of them are injured now!
It was late by the time the game had finished so we had dinner and then only had about an hour to ourselves to rest and reflect on the game. In this time we realised that Peter had learnt a new English phase and now realises how stupid he looks when he dives. Own rooms at 10 ready for another long day in the morning.
