U10’s A – won 0-5
The boys played extremely well and the one aspect that was noticeable was the shape of the team, and how well that was maintained throughout both halves.
We moved the ball around very well and when we didn’t have possession, closed them down very quickly. Constant pressing saw us score three well deserved first half goals, which really ended the game. The Elms boys continued to work hard but we had much of the second half possession, and added a further two goals to seal a well deserved win against a big, strong team.
U10’s B – Lost 7-0
We were a little unlucky not to score ourselves on three occasions during the opening minutes of the first half as we had an even amount of early possession. Unfortunately, The Elms scored two in very quick succession and that deflated the boys somewhat. We continued to work hard but they seemed to break very quickly and they scored twice more before half time. The second half saw us pegged back deeper but to be fair, the boys really started to chase and close them down more and we pleasingly had more of the ball as the half went on. Unfortunately some moments of hesitancy in defence saw us concede another three goals, which I think was harsh on the boys! Onwards and upwards!
