1st XI Football v Skippers Hill - Won 2-0

This was a fantastic start to the season.  We dominated the first half and didn't capitalise on the chances we created.  Massimo, Miro and Igui came close, but it was eventually Daisy who put us ahead.  (This was a momentous occasion with both Daisy and Zadie being the first girls to be selected for the 1st XI and achieving a goal and an assist respectively).

As we expected, Skipper's Hill came back at us in the second half and pushed hard for the equaliser.  They came close on a number of occasions and with some tired legs we began to lose our shape a little.  However, Giada came on as a substitute and we pressed for a goal which Freddie was able to convert with minutes to spare.  Well done to all of you.  PM

 

U11A VII Football v Rose Hill - Won 5-2

Today we approached our first game of the season. All of the boys were eager and excited to get the match under-way. 

We started very well with our forwards pressing high to try and win the ball quickly although this occasionally left us  exposed on defence and as witnessed when Rose Hill took the first goal. The boys had a great reaction with brilliant build-up play and managed to grab an equaliser a couple of minutes later. The game was end to end with both sides making great tackles but we managed to control most of the first half by going 2-1. 

The second half commenced, and we were on fire! We pressed to win the ball back so quickly that this lead to a few mistakes from the opposition which created gaps for us. One thing to work on is looking for the quick passes and finding the spaces.    That said, Ashdown was on top the whole game with lovely passing and communication within the group. Albie, who is an under 9s player, scored an incredible hat-trick for his first game for the Colts. What an achievement for such a talented boy. 

Towards the end of the game we did, unfortunately, give away a cheap penalty to which Rose Hill scored, but it didn’t make much difference to the game. The final score was 5-2 

Scorers:  Albie x3, Felix, Rafe

Well done boys. Keep working hard! JS

 

U11B VII Football v Rose Hill - Lost 0-2

The Colts B had their first match against Rose Hill on Wednesday. The boys tried extremely hard and Bertie made some super saves as goalkeeper. Freddie and Rufus were positive in attack and had some good chances but were unlucky. It was a close game and all the boys enjoyed their first match.  RC
