Under 10 Blue set up a Play Off decider - Bingham Town Blue 4-5 U10’s Blue
This win means we finish joint top of the league meaning we have a championship play off against Long Eaton Town Blue... and what a way to set that up!!!!
POM : Matty
This game had it all. Both teams played exciting and passing football. There were penalty shouts, handball claims, moments of brilliance, last ditch defending, world class saves and much much more... it was an emotional rollercoaster to say the least!
I cant put it all in this report and probably miss parts too! So heres a snippet of the goals and that.
We start off slow and get caught napping in the 3rd minute. The long grass kept the ball in play, Bingham’s winger didn’t give up on it and crossed it to the unmarked forward at the back post who puts it into the open net.
Conceding so early still didn’t wake us up and on 7 minutes a lovely drifted corner causes us problems and the ball is poked home eventually by Bingham who double their deserved lead.
My pre match team talk did state that Binghsm threw a 2 goal lead away midweek so if we find ourselves in that position we must not give up and keep going; this must have rang through our heads as we finally get into the game as a team. Matty had been trying to get us going from the off and had already created 2/3 chances for us with his hardwork, non stop running and skill.
Matty wins us a throwing. He them makes and plays a nice feet and back with Mason. Mason then glides past the Bingham player, skips past another and plays a delightful through ball for Bryn who steadies himself and fires it across the keeper and into the far corner with a right footed shot with 10 mins gone. This is the first of his 8 minute hat trick!
12 minutes in and Bingham bring on their big defender. They play a short goal kick to him and he tried to much and Bryn takes the ball off him and fires it home into the opposite bottom corner with a left peg shot.
Matty continues to cause problems while Bingham try and stop Isaac on the opposite flank by doubling up on him.
18 minutes and we get a corner after another fine save from the Bingham keeper. Matty puts a great corner in, Logan attacks it at the back post but the defender blocks it. It falls at Logans feet and he feeds it to Bryn who fires it home and we take the lead for the first time in the match.
Logan and Euan are awesome at the back and we remain just as strong when Conner comes on too. Conner read the play well and cut out a few Bingham attacks which looked promising.
We force their keeper into making alot of outstanding saves. At the other end Kian is comanding and vocal; he even came up for corners towards the end! Some neat play by Bingham early in the second half sees them equalise. Leo is getting stuck in, leaving nothing to chance.
Megan nicks the ball off a Bingham player, turns him and puts Matty through with a great pass but his shot goes just wide.
Bingham catch us out agsin and take the lead on 35 minutes. We go 1 at the back with 5 to go. We have done this 4 times this season and rescue a draw in all them games... and it looks to have worked again. More great work by Mason on the edge of their box gives him the chance to pass to Bryn and he does; Bryn smashes it home with 2 mins to go.
News filters through that Long Eaton and Holy Spirit have drew 3-3 so a draw is no good for us so we throw everything at Bingham. We get a throw in and Mason launches it into the box. Bryn flicks it on and the on rushing Declan gets it under control and fires a low hard shot past the keeper and sends everyone wild!!! SUPER DEC!!!!!!!
I know I have missed loads and I most certainly havent mentioned enough about all my players!!! You all deserve more mentions! Everyone was outstanding. Bryn got 4 goals and assisted the other and was still pipped by Matty for the POM award; which shows how influential and excellent Matty was today!
Buzzing to finish top of the league!!!
CHAMPIONSHIP play off Saturday 12th May. Kick off time TBC but possibly 10:30. Get down and support All Whites Grassroots Hero’s! Lets get that title!!!
