Second Time Around!
Tomorrow NPFC is set to return to the West Midlands Powerchair Regional League to play in their last set of fixtures. These fixtures come a week before NPFC is set to return to the MDUK National Premiership League, where 12 teams battle it out to become the best powerchair football team in the country.
Last time NPFC managed to secure 2 points after some very tight games but the team were determined to gain some points during the next set of fixtures. Let’s see how the team did this time around!
NPFC started strong against Throstles having a few shots on goal and passing the ball well in some places. There was plenty of optimism that the team would be able to gain 3 points from their first game.
Unfortunately, this wasn’t the case as the team conceded a goal during the first half due to an excellent cross. Despite the team attempting to come back, the team unluckily conceded another goal due to a shot on goal that unexpectedly went in.
Even though the team was 2 goals down, they didn’t give up and secured a goal late into the game. The goal was secured thanks to a change in strategy, enabling the team to get a goal from a set piece outside the box.
During the second game, the team took what they learned from the first game into the next game. The team started strong, securing a goal within the first minute.
Although, Sale came back and secured a late first-half goal due to the team getting caught out, bringing the team to 1-1 at halftime.
After a team discussion at halftime, the team came back strong, securing an additional two goals, leading to a comfortable 1-3 win for the team.
To finish the day, the team came up against Villa Rockets. The team started well, gaining a quick lead against Villa thanks to a goal secured early into the game.
However, the team struggled to score any further goals due to some unlucky shots and great defence from Villa. While the team had many shots, the long day caught up to them!
Luckily, during the second half, a shot on goal from an opposition goal kick enabled the team to easily secure a second goal. The team then continued to defend well, which led to a 2-0 win for the squad.
Overall, the team showcased some great football and brought together everything they learned to secure two wins. The team will be returning to Doug Ellis tomorrow (14th November) to play in more fixtures. We will look forward to sharing those results with you all!
