MYRTLEFORD will head into the first round of the Albury Wodonga Football Association finals confident of progressing despite coming off a 3-0 defeat to league champions Twin City Wanderers on Sunday.
The Savoys went into the match severely undermanned, and coach Nathan Mirt said there was plenty to like about the performance.
“We had six senior players out, so we basically went in with no pressure,” Mirt said.
“We had five 15-year-olds in our line up, so it gave us a chance to experiment a bit with them and also gave us a look at the future of the club.
“Twin City has only lost one match all year so they have been the best team by far, but we wanted to analyse them and see if we could find any chinks in their armor.
“As it happened we held them out for the first 40 minutes before they were able to score, and in that time you could see them getting frustrated.
