MHRML U13 Div 2 - Potters Bar Town Youth FC U13 Scholars 1 vs Letchworth Town Youth Eagles Whites 6
Beaten by a player at another level
The Scholars played a side in top form and beaten 6-1, with the Letchworth nbr 17 dominating the game from start to finish - he was just on another level. He was full of power, speed, agility, vision and was lethal in front of goal with 3 goals, and setting up the other 3. The Scholars did their very best to contain him, but was always going to be a difficult task with two turning up with injuries, and had a further two injured within the first 10 minutes that needed to be substituted, and we also had a late arrival too. So our hopes of trying to get anything of the game was always going to be an uphill task.
The boys were also playing a new system and in varied positions, and must be said that it may have contributed to the boys not getting the most out of the game. However, all battled throughout, never giving up and working as a team. The Scholars did play some great pass & move football at times, especially in the last 15 minutes, when arguably playing their best football of the season and was a showcase of how good they are.
Well done to the man of the match Josh, who put in a massive amount of work rate. Also, not forgetting Brad who saved us on a few occasions and had no chance with any of the goals, and was pleased that he remained all smiles throughout. Brad was also ice cool when placing his penalty in the bottom corner to score his first league penalty and making two for the season – he must be the leagues leading GK goalscorer – go Brad!
Thanking once again the parents who provided great support, and we should all be very proud of the boys never say die attitude and some really good football too.
