The Ton keep up their 100% preseason record

Saturday 14th September 2013 @ Jaffray Road, Erdington

Erdington and Saltley 4 – 2 Phoenix United

Scorers: Shilo x 2, Tyrese, Ramello

Following last week’s sublime performance I was hoping for more of the same. Luckily for me, this team just keeps on giving! Despite scoring considerably fewer goals, the quality of football on show from the lads was breath taking at times. Anyone who witnessed young Shilo Waldo calmly slot away his first goal, following a five pass move that started with goalkeeper Dermot and took in the defence, midfield and attack along the way, will still be talking about it tomorrow at work or on the playground. Pure class!

Even though we conceded two goals in the last five minutes, we defended resolutely throughout the match, despite missing the uncountable influence of Ethan who was on Wolves duty. Similarly encouraging was the zest with which we passed the ball around on the surface and the ease with which we adapted to a new system.

Special mention must be saved for George who controlled the centre of the park, following last week’s efforts on the wing. He was without doubt the man of the match and gave both Liam and I much to think about with the preseason fast coming to an end.

Well done lads, what a great performance!

Thank you for a great game Phoenix and good luck in your upcoming season!


As things stand at the moment, there is no game now untul September 28th, so rest up and enjoy the rest!


Up the Ton!
