We arrived at 1300 on a very cold day, although the sun did its best to warm us up! Following a speedy warm up we prepared to face 6 tough games of 10 minutes. Thanks very much again to the enthusiastic support from the parents, much appreciated. See you all at training on Friday!
Won 1, Drew 3, Lost 2
Team – Ned, Jasmine, Will, Grace, Isobel, Esme, Sofia, Chloe
All in all some fantastic play, with Will controlling the games from the back and keeping some impressive attack under control, Grace, Esme and Chloe working the ball through the mid field and some fabulous tackling back from Ned and Sofia leaving Isobel and Jasmine ‘up front’ ensuring no chance left unchallenged and in some cases capitalised upon. It’s amazing to see such progress, everyone working hard, supporting each other and truly coming together as a team with plenty of getting into space and passing. The whole team should be very proud of their efforts today....well done.
Won 3, Drew 1, Lost 2
Team – Archie, Arthur K, Arthur W, Joshie, Lexi, Martha, Bea, Max and Maes
After taking a little time to warm up (not surprisingly!) the team did fantastically well in all their matches. Thankfully the pitches were bigger this week which enabled the team to try out some passes to wide players which a number of times worked really well and resulted in a number of great goals. In particular Bea’s pass down the left wing to Arthur W who found Archie in front of goal with a brilliant pass. Archie controlled and finished the move in style!!! Lots of good tackling in midfield and defence by Lexi, Joshie and Arthur K. Maes fought hard, mostly in attack, and was rewarded by a well worked goal. Martha and Max passed well and found good positions in midfield to thwart many of the opposition attacks. Very well played all, should be very proud!
Things for us to work on in the coming weeks include 'composure' on the ball, being prepared to take free hits quickly and being ready when the opposition to do the same.
