Clifton All Whites U14 v Borrowash Victoria U14
Clifton All Whites U14 6-3 Borrowash Victoria U14
The long wait was finally over and time for the league season to kick off.
We kicked off and looked a shadow of what we'd seen in pre season, struggling to string
2 passes together.
Borrowash creating the better chances and being extremely wastefull.
With instructions being sent on to relax and trust in their own ability, they abliged and finally woke up with Alex lofting the ball forward and Harley "H" dispatching the 1st of his 4 goals today into the bottom corner.
Time for captain Harry to control the pace of the game stroking the ball around for fun with Gerrard constantly posing a threat down the left and Louis in his new number 10 roll sparking the creativity.
It was Louis with a perfectly weighted through ball and H smashing home to make it 2-0
Next it was Alex from the right playing to Louis who battled through 2 challenges and smashed the ball into the keepers bottom right 3-0 HT
2nd half started and the intent was clear, put this team to the sword.
Harry to Louis who dinked past 2 players and fed H, the hat trick was complete. A delightfully curled shot accross the keeper 4-0.
Again we pressed and won the ball back early Louis again finding H who again finished expertly 5-0.
Last seasons player and youth player of the year and the most reluctant centre back ever Zohaib won the ball and strolled forward sliding a beautiful pass through to Louis who cut back on to his left foot and from 25 yards put what should have been the icing on the cake 6-0.
Then complacency kicked in as Borrowash kept fighting and started tackling a little harder to try and take at least a goal away with them.
They got one and soon after another and then another to make it 6-3.
The result was fantastic but the last 15 minutes shows what we need to work on and improve
Whole team was brilliant and M.O.M impossible to to separate H with 4 goals and Louis with 2 goals and 3 assists who share it this week.
Daniel, Connor, Joel, Zohaib, Ryan, Louis, Harry, Gerrard, Ryan, Alex, Harley, Blake, Ashton all superb today
