2 May 2019 – Dennistoun Thistle 7 – 2 Fusion FC– Drumoyne – KO 8pm
Last night saw us take on our first re-match, playing Fusion FC who were our competitors in our second friendly. During the first meeting Fusion beat us 3-1, but this time the result was different.
Yet again the players turned up in their numbers with a squad of 19 reporting for duty to give the manager a decision to make as to who would make the starting 11.
Straight from kick off you could tell that Thistle were keen to make their mark and it took just 11 seconds (!) for them to open the scoring. A great finish that set Thistle up for the rest of the game as it gave them an early lead to build on.
The first half was one way traffic and by half time it was 6-0 to Dennistoun Thistle.
Inevitably in the second half the team slowed down a little bit, resting on the positive scoreline, however it was to their detriment as Fusion came back into the game a little bit and scored 2. However the win was never in doubt and a 7th goal from Thistle confirmed that.
All 19 of our players got a run out by the end of the match, so it was another great opportunity for the manager to see what he’s working with. Full time score was Dennistoun Thistle 7 – 2 Fusion FC.
This game was a great test to see how far we’d come in just a few weeks and the comfortable win shows the team are starting to gel and produce some good football.
We’re looking to play lots more friendlies in the run up to the 2019/20 season beginning, so if you have a team that’s looking for a bit of competition then let us know and we’ll be happy to arrange something! (we’re keeping our pre-season schedule up to date on social media, so check and see if there’s a date that suits you.)
We’re also still looking for players, fans and sponsors too, so if you’d like to be involved in some way or find out more about the club then please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to talk.
