Top Pitch

A tough couple of matches for the U7s. Match 1 started brightly with Westwood Park taking the lead through a neat goal at the near post from Aaron. Marlow managed the majority of the attacking in the first half, scoring a couple of good goals but Aaron and Charles had several good counter attacks. The second half went much the same way as the first half. A couple of injuries late on for Westwood Park made it a tough battle, but they continued to show tenacity in the tackle, with a growing confidence to dribble the ball on the frequent counter attacks.

Match 2 was largely similar, but Westwood Park grew in confidence and after a slow first half, dominated the second half. Unfortunately, despite several good opportunities a goal did not come. The boys played extremely well in the second half. Robert, Andreas and Kaurshal tackled like demons. Alex W and Kian had several mazy runs from midfield.

Special mentions to Rishi for his brave goalkeeping and for Alfie for playing through the whole of the second match with an injury (which didn’t stop his sliding tackles!).

Team: Alex Walker, Kian, Rishi, Robert, Kaurshal, Alfie, Andreas, Aaron, Charles

Bottom Pitch

Two excellent games of football between 2 sides who played good football. I can’t remember one foul in either game.

Match 1
We started the brighter and in the first half Luke scored 2 good goals. Archie, on his league debut, played with lots of enthusiasm and was our best passer. Alex J and Charlie were solid in defence, while Sam was tidy in goal. In the second half Luke, in goal, nearly caught their goalkeeper out with a long clearance from our goal which almost went in. Christopher came on in the second half for his debut and made several good tackles while Arjan battled in midfield. Marlow scored a good goal late in the game and almost scored again just before the end.

Match 2
Archie had an excellent first half in goal, three times diving bravely at the feet of oncoming forwards. We conceded an unlucky own goal in a goalmouth scramble; the ball only just crossing the line. We then pulled a goal back from Luke but Marlow scored more good goals despite strong tackling from Alex J. We scored the last 2 goals of the game, with Luke completing a hat trick in the last minute. Good games from Matthew, in goal, defence and midfield and Christopher, in midfield. Sam made his usual runs through midfield and was unlucky not to score.

Team: Luke, Sam, Charlie, Arjan, Matthew, Archie, Christopher, Alex Jennings
