U10’s Blue 1-0 Trowell U10s Yellow
What a performance!
Still on the title hunt!!!!!!!!!! Its going to the wire and we are still unbeaten!!!!
I could write the longest report on today’s game! Instead I shall just give you all a little bit on each player and minor bullet points from a true team performance.
We knew we had to go for it early with the heat just in case our fitness failed us and this sharpness gave us an early lead.
Matty had already shown our intention by skinning 3 players down the right but his shot went wide.
However, we win the ball straight back. Mason doing some great work in the middle, Matty providing width. Mason throws the ball to Bryn who controls it well and lays it off to Mikkael. Mikkael cryff turns the defender, then pulls the ball back with his left to turn the defender inside out like a pretzel; not done there he swiftly drags it back across the next defender with his right and fires a low left footed shot in off the post. What a finish.
Only chance Trowell get in the first half is a well worked move which left their big guy a long range shot which comes back off the post. We create quite a few chances throughout the First half but the Trowell keeper is playing outstanding. Second half and we continue where we left off. Izak has a shot from range as the keeper is on the edge of his box but his looping shot just goes wide.
Bryn gets the ball with his back to goal, turns on it and fires a shot that comes down off the bar and bounces on the line; he deserved a goal today. Kian - POM - he didnt have much to do but when he was called upon made 2/3 crucial saves. Played great and kept another clean sheet.
Euan - outstanding again. Worked hard and gave it his all. Thats the utility player we remember; since his wooly hats gone he has really stepped up. Been excellent recently.
Conner - No nonsense as usual. Did the simple thing that gave the biggest affect. Literally stopped all that came towards him.
Mason - Another stella performance from this kid. He has really grown as a player since the turn of the year and was influential in everything today.
Logan - Solid and commanding at the back. Didnt give them a sniff at goal. Adding more and more to his game each and every week.
Mikkael - Scored a great goal and ran his socks off. Didnt give up at all. Worked that hard he asked to be subbed off for a rest! There was moments today where he stood up and was counted for where as a few months ago he would have gone missing. Very proud of him today and he is extremely unlucky not to get the POM award.
Declan - Super Dec! What an engine, back to his best after a troublesome period with injury. He just dont stop running and dont mind doing the hard jobs for the team. Really helps us out with his unselfishness workrate.
Bryn - Strong performance and deserved a goal. Battle like a gladiator and we wouldn’t be where we are or got the chances today without him. Hes been outstanding for us.
Megan - She just did what she was asked to do again. Caused them problems at the back and didnt give up on any ball even when she knew she wouldnt win it. Her commitment made them make a few mistakes which we nearly turned into goals. She could hardly breathe when she came off!
Matty - Looked like he was really enjoying it today. He went on numerous skillfilled runs and worked back as well. Love seeing him when he is in that kind of mood. Gave us options every time we had the ball.
Izak - How fast is this guy! Strong and skillful and was unlucky not to score on a few occasions. Last kick of the game he was unlucky after great work by Bryn. Izak opened them up with ease throughout.
Anyone could have won POM today, it was the hardest one Ive ever had to pick. It shows how comfortable Kian was today.
Im still buzzing with that performance and the win. Love seeing all the hard work pay off.
Lets keep momentum and play like that next week!!!
SUPER PROUD SCOTT
