Match 2

Robert went in goal for the whole of the first match and was very secure with his handling. He also has a very long goal kick! Charlie and Jacob were in defence. Both tackled well and it was good to see them taking up the correct positions at goal kicks and corners (and I thought they weren’t listening to us at the pre match brief!). Archie loves to use his close control in tight areas and he showed his skills off again. Sam scored an early goal. After that it was end to end really. Both defences were under pressure, but Westwood held out until just before the end when our opponents scored from the only time our boys were found to be out of position.

Match 4

The second game saw Archie go in goal. To be honest, he wasn’t really needed. From the kick off, Westwood were totally on top. Andreas played in central midfield and was fierce in the tackle and worked hard to close down their players. Joe was sublime in defence. He reads the game so well and constantly makes timely interceptions. Nicholas and Alfie bossed the wide areas and kept driving us forward. The game was totally played in their half. Robert got a goal early on, followed by a brace from Sam. Sam’s second was scored from their kick off. He intercepted the ball early and beat nearly their whole team!

Overall, two very good performances. Still some work to do on looking up and picking out a pass, but it keeps the coaches employed on a Saturday morning!

Squad; Sam, Charlie, Jacob, Nicholas, Archie, Robert, Andreas, Joe Henderson and Alfie
