Match Result: Westwood Park FC U11s 1 St James Saints 0

Squad: Baffoe, Lee, Haxell, Hughes, Smith, English, Baverstock, Bailey, Murray, Browne, Forster, Dover, Bierrum

It was a fantastic start for the WPFC Under 11s in their first ever 11-a-side game at Westwood Park this morning and the highest ever number of players turning out at this age group (much to the coaches relief).

St James were a tall and physically strong side and had the majority of the early play but the WPFC defence was rock solid, Louis not being troubled too often in goal but doing everything well with some excellent drop kicks and goal kicks. There were great performances from; Ethan marshalling the defence, Max having a fantastic first game for the club, Aaron (Lee)doing an excellent job and James doing an excellent impression of Ashley Cole on the left.

Our midfield started to get control of the game; Joshua as ever never stopping running, Guy getting some excellent passes away, and two of our other new starters Andrew and Daniel playing as if they had been with us forever.

Up front, once they started getting some service Adam and Aaron were causing lots of problems for the St James defence.

Our 2 subs; Toby and Ewan played an excellent part in the game with some great tackling and passing from Toby in particular.

In terms of the game, our winner came from a penalty from Aaron (Browne) after a blatant handball by the St James defender, Aaron tucking away the penalty brilliantly. We had 2 further ‘goals’ disallowed (rightly) after an accidental handball across the line by Adam and a healthy use of the arm by one of our forwards.

Whilst St James had their chances it was mostly our clearer chances but it was definitely heart attack time in the last few minutes as St James came close a couple of times.

So, a fantastic start, well done to all the players and thank you also Tom for his excellent refereeing and to the parents who kindly helped out with the nets and corner flags.

Bring on the next one!!!!!
