Clifton Under 11 Blue 5 Ilkeston Under 11 Red 1
We have chosen to play hard friendlies this season.
Clifton AW U11 5-1 Ilkeston Town Red
Having played Ilkeston last season in the cup and narrowly losing 1-0; we knew this would be a tough game.
Dont let the scoreline fool you, Ilkeston are a very good team and played some great football today.
After only 2 training sessions and no 9v9 games plus the offside rule now coming into play I certainly didnt expect the calibre of performance we displayed today... Even though I know we have it in us.
We was without Euan, Mikkael & Declan but we had 3 trialist in the squad and they all shone.
We played the formation we have worked on 2-1-3-2 and we looked so comfortable.
Logan - Leo
Matty - Trialist A - Issac
Bryn - Megan
Subs : Trialist B - Trialist C
It took us exactly 1 minute 8 seconds to opening the scoring, game is the type of start you dream of. This really pumped us up and we kicked on from there.
All 5 goals were well taken and some great teamwork building up to all of them. The trialist slotted in really well.
Ilkeston grabed a goal back with around 15 minutes to go, it was a well worked goal and deserved.
I am so impressed and proud of todays performance, every player today played great. The link up play, the passing, the team work, their work rate, the decision making but more importantly the smiles on their faces.
They all played with freedom and had fun and this came out in each of their performances.
Well done everyone, youve set your own bar now!
