Blizzard can blow Faithfold away, says Linden

By Danny Caro, December 13, 2012

Blizzard Storm manager Simon Linden hopes to take a leaf out of Bradford City's book and cause a major upset against Premiership opposition in the cup on Sunday.

Although his team were hit for six in the JC League Cup, Linden says his troops have nothing to lose when they host former cup winners Faithfold A.

Linden told JC Sport: "If Bradford can do it so can we - although I would fancy anyone against Arsenal at the moment!

"I'm up for this one, we will give them a game of football. On a different day we could have beat Camden last week. If my team can put 110 per cent in and I can get close to my best 11 on the pitch, why not?"

The Superhoops are winding down for the year, but they will be looking to finish an excellent first half of the season in style.

They filled their Chanukah stockings last Sunday, putting seven past third division Hendon C, when Simon Lawrence (2), Daryl Phillips, Alex Kaye, Dan Howard, Alex Taylor and Dan Perkins eased them home.

Looking ahead to Sunday, Faithfold manager Zuriel Solomon gave an honest assessment. “Again this week we don’t know much about our opponents but again we will respect them.

“We have been in good form this year and hope to finish the year off with a win. Cup games are always special and you have to be on your game to be in the hat for the next round.”

You can get 20-1 on a home win, but I think your hard earned money will be better spent at the sales.

If Blizzard park the bus, damage limitation could be the best way forward to keep the scoreline respectable.

JC team news: Faithfold have a full-strength squad bar Rocky Spitzer who is now on his travels.
