Match Report
A game of two halves in effort and commitment if not in scoreline.
The first half was quite shambolic with an admittedly bigger and stronger Walkden team totally dominant and forcing the Crusaders into regular mistakes from which most of the goals were scored.
7-0 at half time meant that the game was practically lost so we asked the team to give us something to build on for next week. They duly delivered and although losing the half 4-0, the performance showed much more application and cohesion. Chris and Aidan kept strong under a lot of pressure and James did well against a tricky opponent. Bill and Curtis struck up a good partnership on the right and Luke showed tenacity in the holding midfield role. With a little more luck Paul and Sam could have scored and a couple of promising attacks were snuffed out just as we were anticipating something.
My man of the match went to Bill who showed skill and determination, dropping into the right-back position for the good of the team and doing a fine job.

Final Score:- Crusaders 0-11 North Walkden
