The Mustangs continue to improve having made the transition from 7-a-side to 9-a-side, including the dreaded offside rule. They seem to have come through this adjustment with flying colours, finishing runners up in NEHYL Division 5 in a season that went down to the wire. This year is the first year we will play 11 vs 11. Which means bigger pitches, bigger goals and tougher more physical games, The coaches have no doubt the Mustangs will again rise to the challenges.
From a coaching perspective we continue with the same three overriding aims – to ensure that every player gets an equal opportunity to play, that everyone works together as a team and – above all – that every player has fun. We work on technical skills, strategic awareness and fitness – but it has been the Mustangs’ willingness to work for each other that has seen them become a close group who compete in every game they play and never say die!!
