Our Reserves took on the league leaders Dunmow Town last night in the Essex and Suffolk Border League and were on the wrong end of a 5-2 defeat

Here’s what Manager Marc Stephan had to say on the game:

“Out of five goals conceded, we gave three goals away; we could have done better there. In our situation, it is important we see positive steps and last night was the perfect example. Besides the three goals, we conceded from mistakes, it was pretty much a strong performance; Dunmow had to work very hard. We knew we would see goals, we knew it would be an end-to-end game. Dunmow are an experienced team, very direct and very clinical in the final third. It was great hear from them [Dunmow] that they felt we were one of the hardest teams they have played against this season. It was also great to hear them praising our boys.”

“Back in the changing rooms, we were very disappointed, I told the team that this a result we did not expect but a defeat is a defeat. Often we think a win is good, and a defeat is not acceptable. When in fact football can be very unpredictable. We always encourage our players to judge themselves on their attitude, effort and desire to learn, as these are the behaviours that we want to see again. If we allow this game to be, influential we will be silly. We have few things to improve on but the intensity, the effort we showed was what we wanted to see.”
