It’s been a roller coaster ride (and other assorted cliches) of a season for ActiveWin FC since JP League football resumed in February.

Ending 2016 on a high, with a 3-1 win taking them top of the table, AW carried their confidence into their first match of the new year, to dramatic effect.

February – ActiveWin FC 5 SCA 0

It was pouring rain and raining goals when ActiveWin took on SCA on a cold February evening.

Adam Rowley opened the scoring early, due to a slightly dubious referee’s decision in AW’s favour. There was nothing suspect about ActiveWin’s second though, a classy finish from Mike Swain. Rowley then made good on his promise to score goals, plural. Linking up with Ashley Leith to find the net with some style, he finished a beautifully-worked team goal, which began in midfield with MOTM Josh Gamble. Rowley and Leith proved to be a very effective strike partnership. Rowley returned Leith’s earlier favour, setting him up for ActiveWin’s fourth of the evening. Toby Levy then made it five and ended what was surely a tortuous night for SCA.

MOTM: Josh Gamble

March – AECOM 4 ActiveWin FC 3

Two strikes from Ashley Leith and a well-placed header from Adam Rowley sadly weren’t quite enough. Despite a valiant effort, some excellent defending, and a shocking tackle from Eliot Jacob, AECOM clinched a narrow victory.

MOTM: Liam Tyler

April – ActiveWin FC 2 PHGroup 4

ActiveWin dug in, but were outplayed by the best opposition they’ve faced so far. Despite a fantastic goal from Marcus Jackson and an even more stunning strike from Allan Stevenson, the game ended in a 4-2 defeat. Gary ‘no goals, no golf, no phone’ Maiden didn’t score, but did manage an assist to alter his nickname.

MOTM: Eddie Jordan
