Another week, another match for the U11/10 team. This time we were away at Hilden Oaks. With a squad of 9 players playing a 7-a-side game, tactics and team formation were key to this game.
Having come unstuck a couple of times in the last game by leaving an opposition striker on their own, defense was important, and Oliver and Andy did a sterling job at marking the Hilden Oaks attackers. If they did manage to get through, Ford was there to stop any shots on target. Alex played a vital role in marshalling the middle of the pitch, while Simon and Chris bossed the wings. Angus up front was a constant thorn in the Hilden Oaks defenders sides. Regular changes were made, with Matthew and Louis both coming on to play important roles. Chris led the team superbly throughout the game.
The boys are playing more and more like a team each week, with excellent movement off the ball and precision passing. Keep up the good work boys.
