Despite Noble Park Drina FC not having been given access to their grounds for the first week of the season, and the Easter long weekend being a catch up round, we managed to come away with points!
We were missing a few pieces to the puzzle this weekend, so much so that the Senior's Assistant Manager, Dan Bates, had to stand in as keeper for the Reserves. He was mostly untested as the side walked away with a 4-0 win. Goals coming from a brilliant volley from Graham Evans, Javier Ureta, Nigel Tawanda, and Rony Achkar.
The Seniors would be down a goal for most of the match with several chances cleared off by David Herman. Michael Swinnington would see an effort bounce off the crossbar but not cross into the goal. With stoppage time looming, Mark O'Connell would give us the goal we had been searching for, stealing points from Noble Park.
Our next match will be at home against Seaford United SC this Friday. Reserves kickoff at 6:30 with Seniors to follow at 8:30. Doing the coin toss for the Seniors will be our very own Yarra Council mayor, CR Danial Nguyen.
