VS ALTON 1S 11TH JANUARY 2020

Match Report written by Oliver H

On a blustery Saturday morning, the Poole 1st XI arrived refreshed, revived & reformed (behaviour) after a xmas break & a clear objective for the game ahead; continue on from the 1st half of the season.
Once we were all there (hey Aidy)& warmed up, Poole started quickly out of the blocks & scored almost immediately through Tom P. He quickly followed with a second & Jason P added a third with only 20 mins gone.
Whilst the forward line were firing, the defensive line were still dusting off the cobwebs from xmas & were perhaps a little fortunate not to concede through some interesting passes around the back!!
Poole added 2 more goals through Jason & Elliot, & some outstanding forward play that was a pleasure to watch! This left Poole going in 5 goals to the good at halftime.
After the break & a positive team talk, Poole started strongly once more, & added 2 more goals through Elliot to complete his hat trick; the last of which took him past most of the Alton midfield & defence before smashing the ball into the top left hand corner & the shy & retiring forward to return quietly back to the centre circle.....
At this point yours truly thought he would take a short rest on the side courtesy of a green card but the rest of the team continued to work hard and threaten to score more goals. On my return I then somehow manage to gift the opposition a goal through some (what I thought) impressive stick skills on the goal line, & crown a stellar effort on the pitch!
Luckily my team around me helped to push on & Ben P added a final eighth goal to seal the deal, despite a late effort by Chak to help the opposition like I had; only averted by excellent keeping.
All in all a brilliant performance by the team (bar me) & a pleasure to watch. Bring on Bournemouth next week & up the Poole!

VS IOW 1S 3OTH NOVEMBER 2019

Match Report written by James W

Game was long, boring and cold.

Umpires were having a bad day in the office which leaded to multiple bad decisions.

Chris S got 2 goals, Tom got 1 goal and Elliott got 1 goal.

We conceded 1 goal from open play that was made up from a couple of errors (mainly mine, not marking the man)

Man of the match was Chris S, well deserved!

Dick of the day was Me for making great tackles

Next week we take on Winchester who will be a challenge but if we play anything like we did in the first half I’m sure it’ll be alright... well hopefully.

VS HAMBLE 2S 23RD NOVEMBER 2019

Match Report written by Ben P

The Men’s ones started a run of 3 home games on the bounce today, today’s opponents were Hamble 2’s. Poole warmed up as well as ever, unlike Hamble who warmed up with a rugby ball. Who would ever do that..

A solid first half for Poole followed this, all types of goals were going in. From drag flicks to deflections, it was certainly a day of goals goals goals!

6-0 up at break and the half time team talk was focused on making sure everyone continued to do their jobs, after a couple sweets and some water we ready to go again.

More goals continued to go into the Hamble goal after the break, unfortunately cards did as well. A lack of discipline has crept in to the 1’s performance’s recently, against stronger opposition this could become a problem. It’s time draw a line under everything, as a team we are top of the league and need to start acting like it. Some of the hockey we are playing is incredible and it’s being ruined by some silly behaviour’s.

Back today’s action, 2nd half mentions must go to Chak for scoring via belly slide and Toby on scoring a quality goal dancing pass a defender then smashing the ball into the goal.

Unfortunately Chris let one in as the end leaving the score at 11-1.

Goal scorers were -
Ells 3
Ben 2
Chak 2
Nick 2
George 1
Toby 1

Joint man of the match was Ells and Nick, well deserved for Nick for his endless work in the midfield to win the ball back and move it on. Also for Ells who was a threat at the Hamble goal scoring and assisting more goals than he can count to.

Dotd went somehow to myself after deciding to pass the ball to the back post around knee height for someone to tap in, no one was up to the task..

Next week the 1’s entertain people from another Island as we look to continue our unbeaten record this season.
