Pork Pie Hat
The only ‘pork pies’ out there today were the Stockport squad. This analogy as our Men’s NVL were defeated by the team from the home of those pies, Melton Lions VC.
MOM for Stockport on scoresheet was Adam Mitchell, Libero (Chairman’s choice also). What went wrong? Easier and shorter to describe what went right. Old adage is “failing to plan is planning to fail”.
The opposition had 2.5 hours drive pre-match and arrived straight in to warm-up. Stockport were complacent and expected to win. Melton only brought 6 players and no fans. But the competitors came 4th last year in this new league in which we play and so were never going to be a push over.
A classic case of a team showing more will to win deserving of victory. Lesson for the day E.A.T.P.I.E
E= energy levels need to improve through fitness
A= attitude to winning is a prerequisite
T= teamwork. Train as team, play as team, be a team
P= perform with discipline expected of position and team tactics
I = improve. We must improve
E= enjoy. Team respect and camaraderie can win the day.
