Leoš Loos pounces on a mix-up between Carbrain’s keeper and defenders to fire us into a two-goal lead.

Notorious for our slow starts, Brook Street got off to a flier in the new league campaign this afternoon with an excellent 3-0 win away to Carbrain. Two goals from Leoš Loos followed Onésimo Murube’s opener to give us our first opening day victory for four seasons.

“We were outstanding today and well worth our win”, said a clearly delighted Marcus Lövman afterwards. “We guessed how Carbrain would line up and we were ready for them. We bossed the midfield and were able to pick them off in textbook fashion. I couldn’t ask any more of my players”.

The coach also praised his strike partnership who both hit the net saying, “They played exceptionally well together and have been threatening to do that to someone for a while now”.

In particular he singled out Leoš Loos, who after having had a tough start to his career at New Home Park, was coming good.

“Leoš got a rough time from a section of our support as it took him a long time to settle after he came to the club. He’s now answering his critics in the best way possible; by scoring goals”.

He continued, “Leoš is a confidence player and his goals today will have given him a huge lift, but this result has given the whole team a real boost, and to get such a good win under our belts so early sets us up for the season ahead”.

He cautioned however, “We’re not going to get ahead of ourselves here though. We’ve a Cup-tie midweek and a very difficult tie next weekend against Blue Order. Our feet are firmly on the ground”.
