The U13 Boys took on Witham Hall away. Both teams played at the same time and with some absences neither team had substitutes and so had to work hard.
Result: Lost 7-0
The As had a solid start to the game and the defensive work that had been looked at over the last week was playing dividends; although we were struggling to get forward in numbers to put the opposition defence or keeper under pressure. Witham Hall scored on seven minutes and then two more in four minutes to go into the break 3-0 up. In the second half they scored in the 5th and 8th minutes before we started to get back into the game and pass the ball around more out of defence. Frustratingly, they then scored another two in two minutes to give a final score of 7-0. Man of the Match was awarded by the opposition to Daniel in goal.
Result: Lost 6-1
The Bs also had a tough game, but the parents were pleased with their efforts. Brandon was showing progress in goal although the passes to a stick out of defence need work. Pleasingly, a well worked goal involving Harry, Freddie and Rico has opened the goals scored account for the season. Final score was 6-1.
