TEAM: Oliver, Luca, Oliver, Josh, Joseph, Liam, Conner, Mackey, Ben, Finley
Game 1: Versus Moss Bury 0-0 draw
Good start against a tough side, had some great chances to win the game, but a draw was a fair result in the end.
Game 2: Versus Peartree 0-0 draw
Against which was probably the best team at the tournament. We proved to be big and strong all over the pitch and again looked the better side and just couldn’t find that winning goal.
Game 3: Versus Round Diamond 1-0 win
Another excellent team performance. Strong in defence and quick going forward. Our persistence finally paid off with an excellent winning goal from Joe.
Another clean sheet from our goal keeper Oliver, with an excellent penalty save to succour our first win.
Game 4: Versus Broom Barns 1-0 win
Looking stronger with every game in all positions. We had lots of chances in the first half, but had to wait for a second half goal from Josh to confirm our 2nd win and keep up our unbeaten record and still to concede a goal.
Game 5: Versus Ashtree 2-0 win
Two good goals in this game, one from Joe and one from Finley and another strong defensive performance from Luca and Oliver followed up by another great game from the only goal keeper not to let in any goals so far all day … Oliver!
Game 6 : Versus St Nicholas 0-0 draw
After playing St Nicks a few weeks ago and losing by 4 goals we knew we had to work hard and put in a solid team performance.
We again made lots of chances in both halves, but just couldn’t find that winning goal. The game ended 0-0 which meant we finished 2nd overall in the tournament.
We stayed unbeaten all day and were the only team not to concede any goals.
All the boys played really well all day and should be very proud of themselves and the effort they all contributed to the team.
Thank you to Mr Hoffman for coaching our boys at such short notice and to Mr Crowe for training us so well!
