- Having been on the fringes of Youth Football for several years Rustyjack took over the management of Polomint in December 2008. Previous experience in another football management on-line game enabled him to gain promotion for the club in a very short time.
It was a pity this was an away game. The Mints put up their best performance of the season with a tremendous 3-0 victory over Independence Sporting Club from Strathclyde in a match which they had to win to avoid a playoff and possible relegation. They have achieved third place and are now secure in Series III.14 for another season and this was always the target manager Rustyjack had aimed for all season. The only downside to the game was an injury picked up by Argentinian mid-fielder Alberto César Pereyra. He will be out of action for at least two weeks and will, therefore, miss pre-season training. The third goal was scored in the 37th minute and the game was, effectively, over. Interestingly although two strikers scored, the third decisive goal was scored by defender Anders Hegdal. This has been a feature of Polomint’s games all season, that the goals have been shared throughout the team. After the game an emotional Rustyjack was as happy as if he had won the league. “There were some difficult times this season and I thought at one point we might not achieve our target and could go down. However the lads rallied with a draw and then three wins in a row culminating in todays outstanding performance. I am even receiving love poems from the fans! The Chairman and I will continue to plan for next season and , hopefully , strengthen the squad to enable us to achieve further success.”
