Football Team Report

A fantastic game from both sides. We welcomed back Sam and Alise who missed our last few matches. It was a very calm start from the team. Alise and Finley were very composed on the ball and this allowed us to get control of the game. Codey continued to be at his excellent best making a few brave saves, rushing out at the attackers. We were unlucky to concede early on but this didn’t stop us. The attack of Josh, Alise, Sam and Iwan created lots of pressure, winning the ball up the pitch. Some great passing created a few chances but we didn’t manage to score. George came on after 12 minutes and got our equaliser 1-1! A shot from distance was powerful enough to beat their keeper.

Second half! We dominated the first 15 minutes. A great run, turn and shot from Josh (video 1) put us in front 2-1! A few minutes later and we had another. Iwan striking the ball into the bottom corner 3-1! Excellent calm defensive play from Ollie and David kept us in control. Matas came on with Jacob and they pressed high, creating chances. We managed to score a 4th! Matas tried hard to score with a couple of shots that were blocked. Sam then placed the ball into the corner (video 2). Ashton, Alice and Finley tackled well and blocked shots to keep us at 4-1. Codey made some excellent saves at the end. We concede a goal in the last minute after some heroic defending from Ashton and Matas.

A fantastic win! 🥳 Well played everyone, an excellent team performance. Thank you to Ollie for the fantastic videos and Mr Daniel for the photos. Also thank you to Mr Major for helping to set up the pitch and to Mr Youngs for refereeing. A special mention to all the staff and parents who came to watch, it was great to hear all the encouragement and cheering. 👏👏👏
