U16s fall against Heather Juniors
Coton Green 1-6 Heather Juniors
Coton's U16s were well beaten against last seasons MJPL winners Heather Juniors.
They found themselves 2-0 inside the opening 10 minutes and from then on in were found second best in most areas of the pitch. Coton woke up after about 20 minutes and grew in to the game, playing some excellent football in patches and Malachi Searchwell-Snape gave the young Green Army a glimmer of hope on 33 minutes when he received the ball in the middle of the pitch and beautifully lobbed the Heather Keeper from 20 yards.
The second half became a one way street with Coton struggling to contain a now rampant Heather side who played a fantastic brand of pass and move football.
Whilst not a bad performance overall, individual errors and some poor decision making in key areas of the pitch proved very costly against arguably the best side they've faced this season.
Coton should not let this result destroy the way they approach the MJPL, learning from the lessons that each game will throw at them and embrace the journey the lads are on.
