Pirates two good for Faithfold

A brace from Aron Gale saw Straw Hat Pirates climb to sixth in the table after securing their second win of the season, beating Faithfold B 2-0.

     

    Pirates boss Elliot Cukier told JC Sport: "It was a frustrating win this weekend. Not because we were lucky. Because we deserved more.

    "Our rock solid defence - featuring new signing Jake Yudelowitz, Maccabiah star Simeon Cohen, James Van Straten and Saul Tiano - shut down every attempt these guys had.

    "Our midfield cut off every opportunities. And our attack got close again and again and again.

    "But when they play one attacking player and everyone else behind the ball, there is very little that can be done.

    "For the majority of the game, it was like the last minutes of an online FIFA game where they parked the bus in order to prevent more goals."

    Nominating one of Gale's glorious goals for the JC top netbuster of the week, Cukier added: "We outclassed them today, both in the way we played and the manner which we held ourselves on the pitch.

    "But now we look ahead. The next month is full of difficult fixtures week in week out.

    "But we know where we are now. We know how to play. We know what we need to do in order to win. And now we are going to go to that. UTSH!"
