Well contested, but Barton took their chances to score some good goals.
This was probably the best performance from U12 Stripes on grass this season. We missed three good chances, but that is just the way it goes sometimes. George and James were our goalkeepers and they both did some amazing blocks and saves, so well done to both. Our defensive line of Bo, Callum H and Kian (also helped by Callum in A in second half) did a top job - they tried to keep their line and all made some fantastic tackles and blocks. Lots of energy in midfield with Callum F and Daniel F, and Sam W made the right wing his own today - lots of great runs past the Barton midfield and defence. All the while Joshua pushed forward to worry and harass Barton.
Joint players of the week were Bo and Sam W, but a very good performance from everyone (several parents commented to me that they all did well today, and Cal the Barton Rovers manager said it was a closer game than the scoreline suggested).
A goal for Daniel F (I think, or was is Callum F ? Anyone confirm one way or other ?), and a very well taken goal for Sam W.
Well done and let’s carry this performance through to our last RWBL league game on the 29th April (home game at Lower Way).
Thanks to Dave B and Stuart W for running the line - much appreciated.
