Legg needs time to build a side
WELL that wasn’t quite the Sunday afternoon we all wanted but then a 2-0 home defeat wouldn’t have felt better on a Friday evening or a Saturday.
Sepp Herberger’s famous quote, famous if you’re a German football fan that is, fits here: “After the match is before the match.”
In other words, we shouldn’t worry too much about a single match because there’ll be another one along very shortly.
We can’t expect smoothness over the next few weeks, especially when we face other more settled sides.
Sporting success doesn’t arrive on a precise timetable and that includes the carefully planned approach of Deiniolen’s Dave Brailsford.
Besides, if we look for positives in our play they are there – Connor saved another penalty for example.
It was also good that we not only tempted another crowd of over 600 to Nantporth, they also gave Les the expected warm welcome.
We have two home league matches in the next week – Bala on Saturday evening (5.15pm kick-off) and Newtown next Wednesday (7.45pm).
On Tuesday, September 6, Nantporth hosts a U21 qualifier between Wales and Luxembourg (5pm).
It is Wales’ penultimate qualifying match and at the moment we can still qualify for the 2017 finals in Poland, especially as we play Denmark, the group leaders, in Wrexham on the preceding Friday.
This event is a welcome reminder about the standard of facilities we can offer.
If you went to last weekend’s Menai Seafood Festival by car you may have been assisted by a BCFCSA member when parking. Helping people in car parks is just one of our activities that helps both BCFCSA and the local community. Saturday reinforces just how much we rely on volunteers for the work we do.
