Match 8 – 21st January 2005: Inter Yamam v Jack Flash

Recruits Star in Tarkett Stalemate

Jack Flash came through spectacularly in this match after recruiting two players. Two short of a full team, Jack Flash scoured the Tarkett pitch for available talent, coming up with a goalkeeper and an outfield player. The match was a tale of missed chances (from both sides) and some brilliant defending from Rob and Dave in the Flash defence to keep out the seven-man Inter Yamam. Full of apprehension going into the match, after learning the team would be playing against a Wolves academy player, Jack Flash still managed to keep Inter out, with unrivalled determination from Dave, Rob and recruit Chris. Mark showed some initiative in his attacking play, going back to last year's tactic, of 3 back 1 up, where Mark would attempt to latch onto balls played into feet and spin off the defence. This game was a showcase for Mark's skill in this field, pulling of a Pele turn, he dashed around the near side of a defender after knocking the ball round the far side, only to see his 15 yard drive poked away at the near post. Special praise goes out to the recruited goalkeeper, who made some spectacular saves to keep Jack Flash in the game. Inter's keeper too pulled off some brilliant one-on-one saves to keep Mark from adding to his season's tally. As goalless draws go, this was no bore.
