Saturday 2 November 2019 – Croftfoot 0 – 2 Denistoun Thistle – Toryglen – KO 10am
Another Saturday morning, another league game! Today’s match was against Croftfoot, an established Churches league side who we had played a couple of times before in the cup and in pre-season. They play at Toryglen on the indoor pitch, which always makes for a slightly different match environment, but everyone was looking forward to the game and determined to get back to winning ways after last weeks disappointment against Tollcross.
The team did just that as they dominated from the outset, pushing forward towards goal and creating a few chances that just missed the goal. at 25 mins Lucas opened the scoring and for the remainder of the half the team continued to press and add to their goal tally.
Although it was a game where we always looked comfortable, Croftfoot certainly weren’t making it easy for us and after the break they were pushing hard to try and equalise. As everyone knows a 1-0 lead is never safe and the team were relieved when Josh scored a second around the 60 mins mark.
The rest of the game continued in a similar fashion, with both teams getting chances and some excellent goalkeeping on both sides stopping any further goals.
2-0 was how the game finished – the team delighted to get back to winning ways and to have secured another 3 points. Another milestone was also achieved as we FINALLY kept our first competitive clean sheet, meaning there was only ever going to be one choice for the managers man of the match…
