A First at St Hugh’s

A first at St Hugh’s! We welcomed a mixed U13 team from Wellow for an afternoon of football. We agreed to play ten minute quarters to allow for any changes and so everyone could get as much game time as possible. Both teams arrived excited about the opportunity and the game definitely didn’t disappoint, with both teams playing with great spirit and everyone getting fully involved. The ball was pinged from one end of the pitch to the other very quickly which meant a quick change from attack to defence. The tackling from both boys and girls was fantastic which again meant possession changed hands quite quickly. Will L attempted a cross which carried over the keeper and into the back of the Wellow net, first goal to St Hugh’s. St Hugh’s had found their rhythm with a through ball working well for them. The ball found Toby who crossed it in and Will L was able to add to his tally with a tap into the back of the net. Wellow started to link some passes together and a great shot by Wellow got their first goal. Following some good passing by St Hugh’s, Megan played the ball through for Toby who got a good shot off, but the Wellow goalkeeper reacted well and scrambled to stop it just before it crossed the line.

A great experience for both teams and a really enjoyable afternoon of football for our U13s. Well played everyone.
