Match Report

The boys enjoyed a team building meal at Zucci’s and a night in the Boarding House before an early start at 7am to travel to Culford near Bury St Edmunds.

In the morning, the first game was a 3-0 loss against Greshams. Next was a 4-0 loss against Beeston Hall. The third game was 5-0 against Langley. The fourth game was 5-0 against Town Close and the final game was a close affair, 2-0 against Framlingham.  

In the plate competition in the afternoon there were two fixtures. The first against Barnardiston Hall was an improvement upon the morning and it was not as one sided as the 5-0 scoreline makes it sound.

The final game of the day was against Town Close again and the boys had saved their best until last. It was pleasing to see that they had grown as a team over the day, despite the results. At half time, having had opportunities it was still 0-0… but they conceded four in the second half with the final goal just two seconds before the final whistle.
