Thursday night at Thebby saw us play our first trial with 12 new faces. Going into the game, the plan was to gel the new players to quickly learn the Eagles way. The first half had seen some great ball movement, playing the game in our half, defensively allowing us to set up behind the ball. The second half seen North get their hands at the stoppage, with our intensity dropping and some basic skill errors.
As a Football Club, we are happy with where the group is at but still know there is a lot to work to be done. We will continue to improve and gel the group together. This week provides us another opportunity to do this against a good opponent in Glenelg.
We hope to see all the Eagle Supporters at Thebarton Oval, Reserves kick off 5:30PM and League 7:30PM.
