The season is under way and a good start for Charvil U9 boys.
Away at Winnersh, newly promoted as Division 2 winners last season. The game started well with Charvil quickly getting into a passing style and creating early opportunities. With Alex H, Ben D and Daniel all going close. After an 8 pass move and a good save by the keeper from Alex H, Daniel was at the back post to score from a tight angle with a quality finish. Within 5 minutes it was 2-0, again a nice build up from the back from Alex R and Toby, who then found Lucas in space, and Lucas scored from the edge of the box with a lovely finish.
Despite dominating the 1st half, and with Hein having little to do in goal, a mistake let the Winnersh forward through and he finished well to make it 2-1 at half time.
The second half again started well with some good passing moves being instigated by Nik and Carlos, with James breaking up Winnersh play with aplomb. Despite creating several opportunities Charvil were unable to finish the game off. After 5 minutes of Winnersh pressure and numerous corners Charvil look set for victory. Until a superb finish from outside the box levelled the score at 2-2.
Charvil went on the attack in search of the winner and some great work by Lucas led to a foul in the box and a penalty. Ben stepped up and slotted home to make it 3-2 and Charvil held out for a deserved victory.
