Mens 3 V UEA 1 L 0-5

Mens 3s unbeaten run came to an end on Saturday against a high performing UEA 1s squad.
The Students put Magpies under pressure from the off with a high and aggressive press which caught the rapidly developing Mens 3s off guard, who struggled to weather the storm during the 1st half.
It didn’t take long for Magpies to concede multiple corners, all of which were clinically converted by the extremely well drilled students to finish the first half 4-0.
With some positive words from the more experienced members of the team at half time it was a refreshed and rejuivinated group who restarted the second half.
The half started a lot more positively with much improved possession and confidence for Magpies (particularly for MOTM Max), with several attempts on goal but unfortunately nothing Magpies were able to convert, the only goal of the half being for UEA another expertly deflected short corner which highlighted the calibre and quality the ‘promotion favourites’ have available this year.
A tough day at the office for Magpies (particularly for this reporter when exiting the shower), but a high quality game which everyone, particularly the younger members of the team will benefit from.

Bring on Dragons next week.
