Perhaps it was this confidence that signalled the downfall for Frazzle’s troops. Within twelve minutes, the visitors were two goals to the good due to some sloppy defending and the FPC heads visibly went down. The gaffer’s experimental backline was clearly not going to be a success so big Gav was introduced to the play midway through the first half. This seemed to instantly improve the quality of the side as his influence at the back seemed to spread throughout the side and FPC began to dominate.
Is he talking tactics?
Mark Gardner, making his first start for ‘Ra Corner, seemed lively throughout the match and showed real potential to become a valuable addition to the squad, and it was only fitting that he was to be the man to pull a goal back for the hosts. A tremendous ball through by Craigie P sent the new signing clear to stroke home with a cool finish to haul FPC back into the match. FPC battled hard for the remainder of the first half but couldn’t find an equalizer. Instead, Parcelona hit the decisive third goal against the run of play to virtually end any chance of FPC taking anything from the match.
Spot the ball?
Despite this, the lads plugged away and eventually got a goal back, with Scott Mullen steering the ball home after some good work from Dave and Gilly.
Sadly, the third goal was to prove elusive as the Parca defence held firm. However, FPC can still take heart from a good second half showing and look forward to their week off next week, before attempting to bounce back against Olympique Lion in a fortnight’s time.
The search for the first win of the new regime goes on.
