Midhurst U13’s travelled to Worthing with their thirteen regular players for the last league match of the season. Midhurst went a goal up in the first half and comfortably took control in the second half, scoring three more goals. Team captain Joe C scored a fine goal in his last league appearance and Joe T scored a hat-trick making 45 goals for the season and confirming his position as top scorer in the division.
However, once again it was a team performance with all the players contributing. Jacob N and Ollie G were solid in goal and both played for a while in attack to cover for minor injuries. Our defence was impenetrable with Harry W, Eddie DM, Joe S and Tommy F all playing their part to keep a clean sheet. John M played yet again wherever he was asked. Our midfield of Joe C, William K , Callum B and Jacob T were dominant and worked together well as a unit while up front Joe B and Joe T were always a danger to Worthing.
This was our last league match of the season and means that in 2011/12 we won 10 games out of 18, a big improvement on last year’s 4 wins.
At the end the parents were reminded that they had to vote for the supporters player of the season. Speaking as the manager I am very glad I do not have a vote because this season there have been so many outstanding, solid and determined performances I would really want to vote for all the thirteen players named above.
