Double for Under 11s – report from Timmy
We showed fantastic character today against old rivals Mersham who had a big squad. At half time, we found ourselves 4-2 down but we mixed about and it soon worked with Archie as usual prolific in front of goal.
We soon levelled and took the game over winning 8-6 with a great team performance. The lads showed true character with Archie bagging six goals and obvious contender for player of the match but it went to recent signing Charlie R for his all-round display.
Well done lads, proud of you all.
Report from Rob with the Under 11s at Faversham
Today we made the trip to Faversham to face a strong Faversham side the boys didn’t disappoint playing some excellent football with great passing Kris opened the scoring with a well taken goal from Matteos cross 0-1 the boys were solid at the back and Kavalli pulled off a few saves when called into action they kept pressing for another goal and it soon came when Sam put Thomas through on goal and he fired a fierce shot into the corner of the net 0-2 then just before the break Thomas became provider to set Sam up who calmly slotted home HT 0-3 second half faversham tried to get back into the game but the boys held firm when under pressure and cleared there lines well and playing the offside trap brilliantly. We was soon to get the 4 th goal when Alfie pushed up for a corner the ball fell nicely for him to fire into the net 0-4 Sam and Matteo both went close soon after that with Sam firing into the side netting and Matteo just shooting wide but again they pressed and the 5th goal came when Matteo got on the end of Sam’s pass with a cheeky lob over the keeper and into the net 0-5 which was the final score well done all that took part today you all worked your socks off and a big well done goes to Daniel for getting PoTM for a solid performance at right back. Cheers Rob.
Under 12s … well done Cayden!
