Hersham u16 FC v HRBFC u16 Bucks
Sunday 8 October 2017
It's a beautiful morning as we head to Hersham FC for the league game. Will is in goal with Matt Nick James and Arran in defence, Joe Zac Majd and Charlie midfield with George and Rory upfront.
The new format is taking a while to get used to but twelve minutes into game Charlie has a great shot; sadly just wide of goal. The referee plays advantage so James runs down the pitch to cross to George. The ball stays in play for Charlie to skim the ball over the top of the net.
The pressure carries on for another attempt at goal saved by the Hersham keeper.
Charlie takes a corner which is cleared by the Hersham defence.
Two minutes later Charlie takes another corner which Rory powers towards the goal but to no avail as the Hersham defence clear the ball.
There is a great cross from George but again wide of the goal, surely the goal will come?
Another good pass from Joe to Rory who crosses to George and then Matt who just misses getting a toe to the ball as the keeper intercepts the ball. HRBFC seem determined to keep the Hersham goalkeeper busy, they just need a little more power!!
There is a great save by Will as Hersham break away to make an attempt on goal.
There is another attempt by Charlie that is saved by their keeper.
In the dying seconds of the first half George kicks the ball over the head of the Hersham keeper to bring the half time score to 0-1; at last.
Matt comes off thirteen minutes into second half and the boys soldier on with just ten men.
Charlie has a great shot at goal that hits the post.
Majd taking a corner which Nick has run forward to assist with but it is cleared by opposition.
Hersham have the greater chances in the second half and score after thirty minutes. Matt comes back as the score is 1-1 to play on the wing.
The referee awards a free kick from a Rory foul which is intercepted by George who kicks the ball straight into the Hersham keepers hands.
Zac is injured but stays on field for another few minutes before having to come off. the play continues to the final whistle with ten men.
Final score 1-1
