After 3 consecutive fixture postponements due to the cold weather, the U7s finally got back into action at Marlow Royals.

Pitch 1:
After a 20 minute wait for previous games to finish, we finally got onto the pitch for our first games for 2 months. We started slowly and were soon a goal down but the first half was an even contest; both teams had chances but it was Marlow who scored again with the last kick of the first half. We then fought back well and scored goals from Luke and Alex J, on a rare foray into the opposition box. Marlow also scored again while we had several attacks on their goal before the game ended early as the Marlow keeper was hurt making a good save from Matthew. Alfie had an excellent game in defence and midfield, Jacob and Alex J swept up effectively at the back while Luke and Archie in goal didn’t have any chance for the Marlow goals. Kian and Matthew were busy all over the pitch.

Andreas joined the squad for the second match as the opposition side had 8 players. The second game proved somewhat easier than the first although Kian, in the first half, was called on 2 or 3 times to tidy things up in goal. Jacob didn’t have much to do in goal in the second half. We played very well, winning the ball and moving forward with purpose (a few passes even broke out in the second half). Luke scored 3 goals and we could have had more as Luke had another goal disallowed and Andreas, Matthew, Alfie and Archie all came close to scoring.

Squad: Alex J, Archie, Alfie, Jacob, Kian, Luke, Matthew, Andreas


Pitch 2:
All the boys had great fun on Sunday and really enjoyed being back playing for their team. After such a long break from playing in a match they still did really well and although no goals were scored passing and positioning were excellent. Aaron and Charles got stuck in straight away with some fast breaks and carried the ball really well all the way into the oppositions goal area. Charlie and Arjan were great in defense and managed to stop anyone having a strike in the first game. Sam and Robert were everywhere and used their strength in mid field with some lovely passing. It was really good to see them shouting for the ball and wanting to push forward all the time. Joe and Andreas got some great tackles in and managed to get the ball up field numerous times. We rotated everyone through the two matches and they all did well in their positions. Notably the boys made a few excellent runs on goal from long throw ins down the line.

Well done boys

Martin and Wayne

Squad: Aaron, Andreas, Arjan, Charles, Charlie, Joe, Robert, Sam,
