Barnes Stormers FC will be taking on a familiar (friendly) foe in LeftFooters FC in a 9 A Side match to be played on Friday 26th November at Falcon Park.
With a rest week in the league, Barnes have lined up a 9 A Side friendly to fill the void on Friday as they take on LeftFooters FC, a side who they beat in the previous encoutner. "We recall the previous game and I remember they had some handy players out wide and a solid midfield in the middle. The die isn't cast for this rematch at all, we're going to have to work really hard to break them down and grab goals" warned manager Tom Jackson.
The game offers Barnes a respite from league action and opportunity for the team to get more minutes under their belt in a new formation and with new faces as they look to strengthen those bonds and team chemistry.
"With this a 9 A Side friendly, it inevitabley meant that a few faces were cut from the squad and an honorable mention must be given to the lads who missed out on this occassion", said Jacko. "With that in mind, I'm happy with the squad I've been able to select and I'm excited to see some of the lads play in a more competitive game compared to our training matches".
Come win, draw or lose both of these sides embrace the social aspect of sport and will be sure to arrive in good numbers at local bar Gas Monkey for a few beers after the game. With that in mind, spectators are more than welcome to join us for the game and/or beers!
Squad: Alex Twist, Barney Baxter, Billy Brice, David Webster, Deschamps Campbell, George Fry, Harry Cooper, Jack McGarva, Jamani Johnson, Mo Saibu, Rhys Williams, Tom Golden, Tom Jackson
