VENTULA FC - Match Report - 7th October 2019
Back before the millennium, in that fateful year of 1999…
Back when Ventula Consulting was just a sparkle in someone’s eyes, and Ventula
FC a sparkle within that sparkle…
Back when the Vengaboys were dominating the
charts and Austin Powers was dominating the Box Office... up in the North of
England Sir Alex Ferguson was about to win the treble with Manchester United.
When asked about his unprecedented success Sir Alex’s
response focused not on his victories but on his losses.
He said; “The experience of defeat,
or more particularly the manner in which a leader reacts to it, is an essential

The match started well with Ventula jumping out to a 3-0 lead thanks to deft
finishing from “fox-just-outside-the-box” Christian Kenny. Cultured midfielder
Joe Noon continued his fine form and pulled all the strings in midfield.
But Ventula’s path to success was never going to be easy and before we knew it we
were deep in the 2nd half and down 5-4. This is where Sir Alex’s
words returned to the forefront of our minds and thanks to heroic defending
from James Leyden and more transcendent finishing from Joe Noon and Christian
Kenny, Ventula FC emerged victorious.
