Boys Development Team

Magpies 0–Norwich/Watton 1

A game that we certainly should have won slipped through our fingers to end up a frustrating loss. Despite some good play in the first half we conceded a soft goal and seemed to take our foot off the gas despite some good runs down the wing by Jack Newbury. After a healthy half time team talk a different team seemed to take to the pitch with some of the best hockey we have seen all season with several attempts at goal being kept out by a visiting team determined to achieve their first victory of the season. While not denying Norwich their first win we should have come away with a lot more to show for what turned out to be a very credible performance. If we play the next game as we finished this one we will surely come away with the results that we deserve.
