Title: From hope to despair
Post by: ErnSal on May 06, 2019, 06:19:33 PM
I have to admit that when I discovered that Colts had assembled a makeshift team for this cup tie it looked as if we would be beaten by the men from the Shire. However, the early goal by Fraser Team followed soon after by the red card shown to a Shire player provided grounds for hope. 1-0 up against ten men. It really did look as if we had a chance. In the end, towards the final 15 mins, hope turned to despair when slack defending allowed the Shire to equalise and then soon after a defensive error led to the Shire’s winning goal.
In a sense, that one game summed up the latter half of our season: inconsistency and costly errors.
Nevertheless, we are still punching above our weight in this league and we are the holders of the League Cup. We have much to be proud of and if we could receive more support from my fellow citizens in Cumbernauld then perhaps we could acquire more financial resources to strengthen our squad and compete at the top.
I look forward to a new season.
Forza Colts!
