Four For Parry As Professional Phase Turn It Around At Sandwell

On Wednesday December 6th 2017, 14 of the TNS / North Shropshire College Professional Phase players faced Sandwell away in the ECFA Category 3 League.

We knew we were going to be up against it with the opposition reportedly fielding higher players due to no game.

The first half saw us out-muscled by the far superior opposition in terms of muscle mass and we went into the break 2-1 down.

After some deliberation at half-time as to what had gone on, the players themselves created their own diagnosis on the half and a set of objectives to achieve.

This resulted in seven second half goals scored, ending the game in a 2-8 victory, with the scorers being Liam Parry (4), Ismael Ozdemir (2) and Harley Steel (2).

It was great to see a number of boys who I hadn’t had chance to watch, playing the TNS way, which is a credit to their coaches Simon and Kieran. Training this week will continue to work on defending against the counter-attack.
