FC Team C vs Loughton Orient
FC Team will be looking to finish the year in style when they take on the Loughton boys in the first meeting between the clubs in JC MSFL history.
Team are in top form and will be looking to register seven goals for the third consecutive league game. Norstar C were their most recent victims with the other David Cohen scoring a hat-trick.
David Joseph Cohen joined David James Cohen in the hat-tricks column for the season, although he still has some way to go to catch up the side’s top-scorer.
Adam Aminoff is also enjoying a good campaign in front of goal and managers Ben Gilbey and Michael Myers are getting the best out of him in his new role.
Looking ahead to the game, Myers told JC Sport: “We’re unbeaten in the league and we want to maintain that proud record. The Team have a great attitude, they train and work hard, and it’s all down to Ben Gilbey, and we are definitely a more mature side then last year.
“Loughton will be another tough test as they are a physical team, but hopefully our passing and creativity will unlock the Orient.
“Star man to watch is David Joseph Cohen, scored a hat-trick last week and is hungry for more.”
Dan Curtis’ Orient came unstuck against L’Equipe last Sunday. The defeat didn’t go down well with the fans. That’s six now in total and confidence isn’t what it should be.
But Curtis told me this week that his boys won’t have an inferiority complex ahead of the clash against one of the division’s top teams.
Speaking exclusively to JC Sport, Curtis said: “We met FC Team in pre-season and know that we are in for a tough game which we look forward to.
“The boys are not happy with how the season has gone so far as results have not been good enough. This week we want to start putting that right and this is the perfect game to bounce back in.”
I think it’s safe to say FC Team will win without needing to find top gear.
JC team news: Loughton new signing Josh Hambling is in the squad. Curtis told JC Sport: “He’s a great addition to us.” Rob Silverman returns from injury and Jaimie Sinclair is getting closer to a return, however this week will be too soon for him.
