Under 9s report
Well done to the U9s yesterday, you all played well against some tough opposition but managed to win a couple of games and drew one and scored plenty of goals with Matteo netting five. Proud of you all!
Player of the tournament today goes to Matteo for his hat trick against Wye and some great football well done everybody.
U15s report from Carl Hamilton
The boys started strongly and breezed through the group with goals from Cam (3), Max and Ryan. We were playing well and looking solid but had the unenviable task of facing our colleagues in the semis. I think it was fair to say that we were the underdogs against a extremely talented side. The boys started well and got a goal they deserved with Max lashing home. We had chances to extent the lead but just couldn’t take them. The talent they had they were always going to create chances but the boys battled hard and were superb defensively. They saw the game out to go through to the final where we would face Kennington.
The final was very even with both sides having chances. They went ahead in fortunate circumstance with the ball deflected into our own net. The boys showed amazing character and went straight down the other end to score a superb team goal which Louis finished off. The game played out and we went to extra time. In extra time Kennington snatched the lead again and this time despite all the boys efforts we couldn’t find the goal we needed. I’m extremely proud of the boys today who were superb throughout. Well done lads!
