Bingera is riding the wave of success

FOR 12 months a 2-2 draw with arch enemy Across The Waves was the best result Bingera enjoyed in the mixed junior competition, but a new coach and change in tactics has the Under-14 team on the comeback trail in 2015.

The U14 mixed team shocked the competition when it showed up for the 2015 season after losing all but one game last year, and its determination was rewarded with a 4-2 win against Diggers in the opening game of the season.

The mood has changed in the team and this season already looks like it will be one to remember.

A structured playing style has been introduced and the smiles that were missing from the players' faces last year have returned along with their love of the game.

For the past few years when the players started their pre-season training they were met by a new coach with a new way to play the game, and this year was no different. But greeting them this time around was John Jones.

After beating Diggers confidence was high and Bingera thought it could take on the world, but it was faced with ATW at the weekend and the players thought they could do it without Jones's help.

The round-one guidance Jones offered was absent and the players learnt the lesson their coach was someone to listen to after they went down 5-2 to the ladder leaders.

The ultimate goal is to beat ATW and with Jones's help Bingera has a chance, Bingera's next game is on April 18 against Brothers Aston Villa.
