School Football Team Matches - Friday 8th December


On Friday afternoon our school football team made the short journey to neighbours Southey Green. In freezing conditions both schools put everything into the game with tackles flying in right, left and centre. We fell behind early on but came back well to be 2-1 up just after half-time. This was thanks to a couple of excellent saves from Brice. Despite a few chances to finish the game off we conceded a late equaliser to draw 2-2 with Southey A. Our direct play was very effective and put the Southey defence under a lot of pressure. We also defended superbly, with Ryan in particular commanding in the air. In the second game against Southey B we found it a little more difficult and lacked some composure when faced with many chances. However an excellent free-kick from Marcus and two smart finishes from Kyle gave us a deserved 3-1 victory. At the end of the afternoon all our team were shattered and covered in mud! Sorry there are no photos but it was simply too cold!!! Well done to all the team: Brice, Ryan, Owen, Lewis, Fnan, Markus, Kyle and Harley. More matches are scheduled for early in 2018.
