Why is it in football that the managers seem to have such a marked effect on the performance of the team? It wouldn’t be the first time that I’ve heard that football mirrors society in general and a bit of man marking, making sure players are playing in the right position, the team is not all about the centre forward fit just as well in business as on the football field.
We wanted to get an end of year report on our new charges, Sporting Khalsa to see how their season was progressing and whether our new kit was making a difference. Natalie told us, “Sporting Khalsa finished 2017 on a high after a very slow start to the season, which resulted in forced changes at managerial level. The changes have had a positive effect on the players and the team is now thriving and pushing on for a successful 2018.
The first team ended 2017 with an impressive 18-0 win against Wyrley in the Quarter-Final of the Womens Staffordshire Challenge Cup, which sees them progress into the Semi-Final against Wolverhampton Sporting Club; this tie will be played on Sunday 21st January.
The development team also completed 2017 in style by beating Shropshire side TNS 8-0 just before the Christmas break.
Both squads are raring to go in 2018. The teams are both currently sat mid-table in their respective leagues with great potential to climb up the table building a solid platform to focus on for next season”
Forget Gary Neville, with this set of results, I’m thinking the new manager at Sporting Khalsa should have applied for the England job!
Naturally we wish the team well on Sunday and let’s hope they make it all the way to the final. But can we just share a thought for the girls at Wyrley though; that must have been painful
