The team had their first league game against Moorends Stingers yesterday and gave a great account of themselves in a all aspects of what good football is all about. As a defensive unit the team was brilliant in getting goal side and putting in some crunching tackles no more so than Henry and Luke who in one tackle knocked three players down in one go two of theirs and one of ours! The team alternated the goalkeeper role and Tyler made some brave outstanding saves to keep Moorends out. Both Jake and Theo showed off their dribbling skills throughout the game and kept the ball very well. Harrison as always covered every blade of grass was immense in both defence and attack and linked well with other team mates. On the attacking front Milo who is normally associated with only defending went up field and hit a tremendous shot which was heading for the top corner but credit to Moorends goalkeeper he made a great save. The teams goal scoring efforts mainly rested with Jamie who peppered the goal with shots going close, hitting the post and I am glad to say finding the back of the net. The MOM went to Jamie but all of the team put in a great shift I cannot believe how much they have progressed within a year. This Saturday the team are at home to Snaith.
