WHEN your team is beaten 6-1 you are not going to be happy – just ask St Georges Basin coach Scott Aldridge.
“Yeah it was disappointing,” Aldridge said about his team’s loss at the St Georges Basin Sporting Complex on Saturday.
“The boys were not switched on but I will add the effort was there and they never gave up.”
The lopsided score gave the Basin mentor the chance for a positional experiment.
Tom Reminis was moved up to the forwards and the move worked.
“Tom was pushed up front from the centre/mid position and he kicked our goal,” Aldridge said.
“Depending on availability Tom might even stay up front.”
Goals to Shaun Aldous, Taite Arney and a screamer form Billy Wallington had United up 3-nil at the break.
United coach Trevor Skingle stood back and applauded Wallington’s effort.
He marvelled how Wallington in the left mid position showed pace, poise and strength to kick a belter.
“Billy buried that ball into the back of the net,” Skingle said.
The United coach said he was happy with the effort.
“We had made a few changes because some things just were not working,” he said.
“We selected players with a bit more pace up front and this worked for us.”
Skingle was so happy he had a good humoured dig at Matt Fuz.
He suggested Fuz might not have the pace to take on the defence any more after Reminis took the ball from him to kick Basin’s only goal.
Along with Wallington and Arney the United coach said Matt Lewis was strong.
Meanwhile, Aldridge said goalkeeper Brandon Labb did everything in this power to stop the bombardment, while Mitchell Brown and youngster Wade Garin never gave up.
