Our 4th league fixture of the season saw Wendover Juniors come to Westwood Park.

Match 1
Max made his debut in this match and looked solid in goal, making a couple of fine saves. Both teams tried to pass the ball around and chances were created at both ends before Luke opened the scoring with a long shot into the corner of the net. Lucas, who is becoming a fine defender, showed good anticipation and determination in the tackle and formed efffective partnerships with Rishi and Joe. Luke completed his hat trick before coming off and Charles scored a fine team goal before the end.

Match 3
Against a more direct and robust Wendover side, we continued where we left off in the first game, playing excellent attacking football. Helped by the tight defending of Joe, Rishi and Lucas we passed well (especially Christopher and Kaushal) and dribbled past players (especially Charles and Luke) to create lots of chances. Kian got his turn in goal and made several important saves whenever Wendover threatened. A tight first half ended all square, after another goal by Luke was matched by an excellent Wendover goal, after a fine passing move. In the second half good strikes from distance by Luke produced 3 more goals but the best goal came from Kaushal, who had two excellent matches, finishing off a passing move he was involved in with a composed finish. Wendover scored an opportunist goal before the end.

Good performances from all, especially Charles, Kaushal, Lucas and Luke; Max worked hard up front when he wasn’t saving goals at the other end while Kian and Rishi had effective spells in goal. Christopher’s continued good work in midfield will surely be rewarded with a goal in a match soon. Everyone willingly took their turn as a substitute. This was a fine team performance, certainly our best of the season so far. It is very good to see all the hard work the boys put in at training result in an excellent performance in matches.

Squad: Luke, Charles, Kaushal, Lucas, Kian, Christopher, Joe Day, Max, Rishi
