North Duffield Dragons under 7's v Holme Rovers under 7's

Richard Brook | 12/11/2018

Saturday saw great conditions for playing good football and both teams did not disappoint in a pulsating game. In training the players have been working on getting goal side and defenders supporting the attackers when we have got the ball and attackers helping defenders to win the ball back when we have not got the ball and as a team Holme did it brilliantly and also a criticism of our players in previous games is not shooting enough and on Saturday Holme ''rained'' shots at North Duffields goalkeeper. Theo got us off to a great start in keeping a clean sheet in the first quarter and throughout the game Luke, Thomas, Henry and Nathan hardly allowed a shot on goal and supported our attackers when we were in North Duffields half especially Nathan who got a goal from a corner. As to our attackers all of them i.e. Jake, Harrison, Clayton, Jamie and Tyler had shots on goal and Clayton got a few goals and Jamie yet again got a long range effort goal and all helping out in defence when required to do so. As you might know Saturday was a special day for our team for obvious reasons BUT the return leg is this coming Saturday against the same opposition and at home so another big performance is needed by our team so as to win the cup. The man of the match went to Nathan for his goal, position play and making some crucial tackles well done to him and all the team.

Monk Fryston under 7's v Holme Rovers under 7's

Richard Brook | 22/10/2018

Saturday saw brilliant conditions to play good football with no wind and a good flat pitch to play on and both teams put on a great performance. Our team in training had put a lot of time and effort in about positional play and as a result the team were solid throughout the game going forward and also defending. Some players were tried in different positions no more so than Luke who played in goal [ kept a clean sheet] and also in attack. Defensively with Nathan, Henry, Thomas and Milo we were as solid as a rock giving great protection to our goalkeeper and even having the confidence to join in attack with Henry having a shot from 20 yards out and hitting the post. The attackers Jake, Harrison, Clayton, Theo and Jamie showed some really nice touches and dribbling but all need to have confidence to shoot more but when we did not have the ball they all worked really hard for the team and came back to help the defence with some strong tackles. Lastly I would like to thank my backroom staff Chris, Gaz and Pete [our side line looked like something from an American NFL game] for assisting me in Adams absence. When I asked them to give me their man of the match they said give it to all of the team which says it all. Well done to all connected with Saturdays game. This weekend we are at home Goole Town Tigers.

Gilberdyke under 7's v Holme Rovers under 7's

Richard Brook | 02/10/2018

Last week saw Holme start very slowly and were always chasing the game but this week from the very first minute the team was really switched on and gave a great performance and matched Gilberdyke in all areas. In the first quarter our very own Clayton '' bossed'' the game and considering he has only just joined the squad is already a great asset. He was well supported by Theo in goal. I am glad to say our defenders on the day Milo, Tyler, Thomas,Nathan and Henry put in some great tackles and now are starting to keep their positions and so minimise the number of shots on goal. The forwards as in Jake, Harrison and Jamie put in a lot of work to create opportunities on goal and were not scared to work back and put some tackles in, so much so that Jake was warned by the referee about one of his hefty tackles he put in. The outstanding moment of the match was by Jamie who took a free kick close to the by-line and with the outside of his foot bent the ball into the top corner of the net but the man of the match award went to Henry who won every tackle he went in for. Lastly again it was good to see Luke Watts supporting his team mates as it was his turn to sit out this game. This Saturday sees the team play at home to Goole and there might be another game straight after against Holme under 8's blacks.

Snaith Juniors v Holme Rovers Under 7's

Richard Brook | 25/09/2018

It was great to see Clayton in his Holme Rover kit for the first time and making his debut for the club and also Yusuf, Nathan and Thomas playing there first league games. As to the match itself to be polite the team started off very slowly and could not match Snaith in any departments but I do not know if it was Adams team talk but it certainly stirred the team up and Holme gave Snaith a lot more competitive game especially in some great tackling. Unfortunately we had all players available to play on Saturday and two had to sit out and I was glad to see that both Theo and Jake came along to cheer on their mates. This Saturday we are away at Gilberdyke.

Race Night

Richard Brook | 24/09/2018

What a great night we had on Saturday which saw the club raise over £1600. A lot of thankyous, those that sponsored the races, bought horses, backed horses on the night and bought raffle tickets. The last race i.e. the auction race was the ''icing on the cake'' as there was £1200 spent on horses of which £600 went to the club. I would like to thank the ''girls'' who helped out on Saturday night and to Paul Harrison for organising the event [glad to see his dad Bob there at the event. We will be holding another race night next year and I can give you a tip,, which ever horse Ben Pearson buys or backs don't put a penny on it.
