A Comfortable win for the Panthers

A Comfortable win for the Panthers

 
Panthers took on Gemini FC in a friendly; a team that had been undefeated for much of last season in the Epsom & Ewell Sunday Premier league so a decent test was expected.
With a number of the current Panthers unavailable for the match, it gave us the opportunity to look at a few boys that are trialling for the Panthers for next season.
Panthers started the match as:
———– Leo ———–
Joe — Charlie M — Devon — Tate (c)
——– Freddie — Will ———
Charlie R — Joshua —– Jake  C
——— Ruben ——–
Subs: William, Ollie, Sam

 

Ruben was a real handful up front, and with Joshua behind him, and Charlie and Jake supporting from the flanks Gemini were struggling to deal with them.
Fred and Will were snuffing out any Gemini attacks, and when they did find space through, the defensive 4 were superb, with Leo barking instructions from behind
From the first whistle, Panthers pace, organisation, movement and passing was scintillating, and then the goals started flying in.
