Feeling The Energy
CANTERBURY V OLD ALBANIAN
Our focus all last week was to make sure that we prepared ourselves mentally to travel to Guernsey to perform at our best. We have been continually growing our understanding of what our best performances are built on, and the way we played last Saturday showed how far we have come. It starts with our physicality in the first two minutes, from all 15 players, and from that foundation we can build the rest of our game. Frank Reynolds deserves a mention for a 24 point haul which has put him as the highest points scorer in the league. This is a fitting reward for his contribution over the first ten games.
We are not the finished article but the increased energy the players have brought over the last three weeks has shown what this group is capable of. There are no weak teams in this league and if we step off the gas we are going to be disappointed, and that is not something we want to go back to. As we return home to the Marine Travel Ground after two long trips on the road, we are looking forward to showing our amazing supporters how much it means for us to be back.
The unstoppable Pilgrims did the business again beating second place Crowborough by a 30 point margin opening a nine point gap over second place Dartfordians. The team has a well earned break this weekend before they launch into the final three games before Christmas as they look to continue their perfect start to the season.
