Our website says Aryan played 26 times for us.....really? I thought he was in and out of the team all the time......but if that's correct I take back what I said earlier, he had enough chances.
As for tackling, its a skill the whole team needs to learn. Maybe pay Millsy a few quid to come down from the Gate and run a session? He never had any problems. One of my lasting memories of this Stones Legend is at Aldershot first year in NL tackling a flying forward as Stones last man, winning the ball, and not conceding a penalty, not even a foul! Its a shame he wanted to stay part-time as I am sure he would have grown into NL as he seemed to grow into every league we went up to! That's enough reminiscing, even for an old boy.
However, the biggest problem we seem to have in tackling is not the skill in doing it but the balls, the courage and the removal of the fear to WANT to do it. Even Millsy couldn't teach that!
I think the fact we are at the top of the naughty boys league by a country mile shows we do tackle but very,very badly.
Big loss for our chance of us topping that league at the end of the season . He was a dead certain yellow card a game.
