Stapleford v Teversal
Final game of the first season, and what a season it has been!
What a perfect end to the season, full team turnout, sunshine, an away win and a birthday party!
From the start of the first 'whistle' the team worked hard. Communication between each player was spot on and showed great team work. After a few minutes of settling in and finding their feet, Teversal found the back of the net shortly followed by a second. Stapleford pulled it back and went ahead 3-2 but our U7's weren't finished just yet, and neither were Stapleford. Another goal from Alfie plus an outstanding free kick from Dexter put us back in the lead but Stapleford replied by putting their final goal passed Maddie. Charlie slotted another passed the Stapleford goalkeeper sealing the deal. The final result 4-6 to Teversal.
The team have showed so much improvement this season and each player has been on their own development journey. Players have developed new skills, an understanding of the game and grown in confidence. Next season is going to be impressive if the last 9 months are anything to go by!
A final word from the coaches:
Craig "Everything came together on Saturday. We defended well as a team, our passing was excellent and we scored some excellent goals. It was the perfect performance to end the season with. Now looking forward to Summer Tournaments and preparing for U8's football."
Ryan: [/b]"Everything we have been working on recently came together nicely with, in my opinion, our best performance of the season against a very good Stapleford team. As Craig said, the perfect performance to end the season with."
A big well done this week to Zach who was awarded 'Player of the Week'. Zach showed positivity the whole way through the game, always playing the ball forward and finding some great passes.
Congratulations to this weeks goal scorers - Alfie, Charlie, Jakub & Dexter. Also, a massive well done to all the players who took a turn in goal. You were all incredible!
Big birthday wishes to Alfie who turned 7 last week and Charlie turning 7 at the weekend :)
Finally, a big thank you to the parents for your commitment and support this season!
