Last night was our final game of the season in the Astro Soccer Sixes Carlisle Division 2. After securing promotion with a game to spare we went into the final game against Dobbies Garden Centre knowing a point would secure 2nd place which would earn us some silverware! We knew it would be a tough game as Dobbies were on a good run of form.
Me, Dan, Ricky and Jamie took to the pitch to try to get that much needed point. We got off to a bad start after a goalkeeping blunder by me and were one down after only a few minutes. To get back into it we had to push forward much more than we would have liked which left us vulnerable to the counter attack. We found ourselves 4-1 down mid-way through the second half but we kept battling and never gave up. This almost paid off when we pulled it back to 4-3 with just moments to go. We kept pushing but one final counter attack put the game beyond us at 5-3 this meant we finished 3rd on goal difference.
We've had an enjoyable season winning 9 of our 11 matches and as well as the 6 of us that played the final game there have also been star performances from other David Allen staff including Jaimi, Craig, Danny and Michael. Craig's season was cut short when he broke his toe in last week's match! We're looking forward to testing ourselves in Division 1 next season which will see us play fellow accountants Saint & Co!
