Jimmy Nottage comments on the Lakers 2 games to date

The season season so far for the Lakers

Firstly just want to say how lucky we are to have great grounds at Crown Park the pitches are looking great this year. The Lakers lost a few players this year due to various reasons but we gained great new ones . Still playing our trusted 4-4-2 formation Two games in and two wins the first against Opotoki we didn't play particularly well but took our chances and great to see one of the new boys Brent get a Hatrick on his debut , the normal good passing play didn't seem to happen for this game but it was the first game of the season so we had to learn from this game ,the new boys had to see how to play with the regulars ,and there was a few good spells but not our normal good flowing football

The second game verses Pamomoa at home again at Crown Park was much better the boys seemed to jell for this one the Lakers passing game was back and it was a good Papomoa side who took us all the way to the final whistle they made it a lot harder for us in the second half . The boys are putting in the hard work twice a week training and hopefully it will pay off on a Saturday , we won bay 2 last year and will want to do well and go for it again this season ,but know once you have won that you are the team that they all want to beat ,so each game we will all have to give it 100% With four away games ahead of us three injured players out and family commitments for a couple of the others ,hopefully we can continue the good start with the commitment of the core players in the squad .
