Not long home and soaked to the bone! Fantastic playing from all of the boys today despite the weather.
We entered two U10s teams today and one U12s.
U10 Team A had our strongest players and played amazingly, winning 2 games against Plymouth Marjon (2-1) and Tiverton B (2-0) and drawing the last against Torbay (0-0). They worked amazingly as a team with some great passing and brilliant defending. Some great goals from Benny (1), Gilbert (2) and Alexander M (1). Player's player was Alexander M who gave a great all round performance and a great goal! Undefeated in all their matches and very well deserved.
Team B were made up mostly of our new players who have only joined us this season and two brave U8s! They played brilliantly considering and got stuck right in. Unfortunatley they lost all 3 of their games against Tiverton A (0-2), Torbay (0-1) and Plymouth Marjon (0-2) but only a couple of goals let in despite constant shots being fired. Wilf did some brilliant defending and Harry and Rufus (U8s) did brilliantly in forward and defence. Player's player was Zack who was completeley fearless in goal today, we lost count of the goals saved and he even headered the ball away!
U12s played fantastically! Jake, Benny and Zack all played up an age group after their matches so we had enough players. A well established team with lots of experienced players. They spectacularly won all of their games except the last which they drew. Great goals from Luke, Mikey, Benny and Zack. Some brilliant tackles and passes. Player's player was Mikey! He was up and down the pitch like lightening and carried on like a trooper despite taking a knock to the knee. Undefeated again!
Thank you to all the coaches and parents for their commitment and dedication. All of the boys should be very proud of themselves for their hard work today. I hope you have all dried off!
Thanks to Kathryn Allen for the report.
