Cole Jarman Compete in the Acoustics Cup

Cole Jarman took part in the third annual Acoustics Cup charity 5-a-side tournament; with more entrants than previous years there were four group games to navigate before the knock-out stages began.  Unfortunately all the well laid tactical plans seemed to go out the window early on as CJ struggled for passing fluency.  Showing the cutting edge of a blunt butter knife, the team failed to score in all but one of the group games, conspiring eventually to lose all four, accumulating a significant negative goal difference along the way.

The competition format however showed no mercy, and CJ progressed to the plate quarter final nevertheless.  The team put in a spirited performance in what would prove to be their final game; after going a goal down to an early counter attack, CJ drew level and created a number of further openings before half time, but were unable to take the lead so the teams reached half time on terms.  The second half then included some comical defensive blunders, which ultimately saw the CJ team defeated 3-1 and deservedly knocked out of the tournament.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank Campbell Associates for again organising and running the event, in aid of a worthy cause local charity Grove Cottage.
