A momentous week in the Second Division! Europa Point dropped 4 points in a draw vs Gibraltar Scorpions and a loss in a thrilling 4-3 midweek encounter with Mons Calpe. We did our bit by beating Mons last weekend and setting up a 2 point cushion with Europa Point. If our boys got the job done we’d all be home at Christmas 5 points clear at the top. Aldorino seems to have come across a settled group of players that are adept at playing in either a 4-4-2 or 3-5-2 formation. As such it was this solid group that was entrusted to deliver this most important of victories. On the bench we had two of our ‘international’ players Sean Gilbert and Brad Power who are completing their studies in the UK and are home for Christmas. It was great to see both get a run out and indeed Sean got himself on the score sheet. Indeed we had both Collado brothers and both Gilbert brothers on the pitch at the same time, can’t say I remember that happening very often! Unfortunately there is no match report for this week as your usual reporter was away at a wedding yet the boys delivered and top of the pile we sit! It was also very gratifying to see 22 locally developed players fight it out on the pitch, a rare occurrence in Division 2 these days.
