Fernwood Foxes 4 -1 Clifton U10s White
Not the ideal way to finish what has been an phenomenal effort from the U10s White this year
However with one promotion secured in the first mini league alongside Fernwood we were more than familiar with the quality in their side and winning this match actually potentially could have led to a second promotion subject to other teams results.
With the loss however we are not actually quite safe and require West Bridgford Rondos to either draw or beat Trowell to remain in the division.
Fernwood came at us very organised and with a great style, in the blazing sunshine of last Thursday we looked a bit tired from the school day. Saying that second half we started to create a few chances and test their keeper, including a poorly parried shot by their keeper which saw a rampaging Matthew chasing it down to finish the rebound into the empty net! Well done Matthew!
Shortly after Matthew laid the ball off to Dylan who hit a cannon of a strike on target only to be stopped by the keeper, should this have gone in we stood a real chance of getting back into it with around 10 minutes left - great effort!
Our second half performance was great and the lads should be extremely proud of their development over the season, with the attitude and effort on display we remain a solid unit always working hard for each other and committed to the cause. With this statement in mind all i asked before the match was exactly this.
The boys did not let me down, demonstrated in a 30 second spell where the boys were seen throwing themselves in front of shot after shot from Fernwood resilient to the end!
Lewis N was the MOM who had a significant challenge against him in the form of Fernwood's right winger throughout the match and he really did a great job on him, challenge after challenge, battle after battle.
Lets look forward to the presentation which will cap off a great season and the 9v9 mini league!
