Manager pleased with pirate performance

In a post match interview with tabloid journalist A.J Vickerstaff, Jack Flash player-manager Edward Green had the following words of note regarding yesterday's performance.
"At the end of the day we're delighted to have come away with the result. To be honest, goals change games and this was a game of two halves. It was end-to-end stuff, but I'm really pleased how the lads reacted to the pressure. I had a sneaking feeling throughout the game that it was there to be won. Early doors, we dominated them and could really have run away with the game. We had a fresh pair of legs up our sleeve and I think in the end that made the difference.

Match 3 – 9th November 2004: Jack Flash v Original Pirate Material

Flash struggle to a win against Pirates

In a game which Jack Flash should have won much more comfortably, Original Pirate Material were lucky not to have conceded more goals and lucky to score at all. A lucky own goal gave first blood to the challengers, Mark scuffing a cross from John towards the Pirates goal for it to be converted via a defensive confusion. Before the break Jack Flash spurned many chances with Mark and John coming close as defensive work from Rob and Ed allowed them the space to run at defenders. The Flash were hit with a setback just before the interval with a controversial goal from a kick-in, possibly converted by Rob on the line. A good team mentality allowed Jack Flash to get over this hurdle and go into the second half more positively, re-establishing the attacking dominance they had in the first period. Dave and Paolo's attacking presence was noticeable on the field in their league debuts, against the 5-man Pirates. Good determination from John allowed him to poke the ball through to Mark for an easy, but emphatic, finish for the winning goal. A win for the Flash was deserved but only just achieved. After the game the team speculated that, against better teams in League D, the finishing of chances would be key to victory.
