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.
Holme Rovers under 9's blacks

I was asked to stand in and help run the under 9's blacks today with their first league fixture of the season and what a great game it turned out to be. Things did not start too well with only 6 players been present at the start of the game and the team soon found themselves a few goals down but to their credit they kept their heads up and started to play as a team as in getting goal side and putting in some great defensive work. When the team managed to have seven players on the pitch they matched Goole in all areas and matched them goal for goal. It was great to see how the team worked well together with great passing which culminated in some fine goals been scored. I do not like to mention individuals normally but a big congratulations to Lucia in completing her first full game [60 minutes!!!] and to Tom who got my man of the match in having to work up front on his own while having only 6 players and was richly rewarded in getting a great goal near the end of the game but his goal celebrations need some working on! Again a big thanks to all players giving 100% over 60 minutes and enjoying every minute of it.

This week saw another new venture undertaken by our football club in holding its very first soccer school. I am glad to say that over the last 5 days more than 30 children on average per day have attended. Listening to the players they have had a great time as improving their football skills and having fun at the same time while attending. The only negative was my dancing skills which were no where near the standard of those players attending. Lastly I would like to thank all those within Holme Rovers who organised this event and those that helped run the soccer school this week.
