Physicality and adaptability.
For all of their strengths last season, Milltown FC didn’t exactly exude these two assets.
Omar Jbaihi is determined to change that.
“Everyone wants to play the finesse game, but you’ve got to be able to adjust when that’s not possible,” stressed the second-year head coach, whose team faltered down the stretch last season after the injuries and physical toll taken in winning the League Cup in late August. The team begins Peel-Halton Soccer League Premier/First Division play just over two weeks, hoping to win the regular season title and get promoted to the Ontario Soccer League. “We had trouble adapting to different teams from game-to-game.”
