|Time played||Normal time|
Here we go for the first game of the new season. We were playing Fairlands youth at home.
The first 5 minutes we did not play too well but once we settled down we started playing good football.
A great passing move saw Tom run clear and square the ball to Louis to finish off, 1-0.
Then Tom went 1 better and ran through the defence to score himself, 2-0.
Then from a corner Josh had a shot that was blocked & Louis hit the rebound that hit the cross bar but did go over the line 3-0.
Finley was playing well on the wing and causing the Fairlands defence lots of problems and on another break crossed for Louis to complete his hat trick 4-0. At half time it was 4-0.
We had dominated the first half but the boys were told to carry on passing the ball and keeping their shape.
The 2nd half started and a great ball from Owen set Nathan through to make it 5-0.
Unfortunately the game then got a bit messy as the boys lost their shape and were trying to do too much with the ball and not passing to each other, once we settled down and started passing again the goals came. Alex received the ball on the edge of the box and placed the ball over the goalkeeper into the corner, 6-0.
Then a great passing move was finished off by Alex again shooting from the edge of the box 7-0.
The boys then got caught out trying to get more goals and got caught too far forward leaving too much space at the back and Fairlands got through to score 7-1.
That is how it finished.
A great start to the season, Even though we could have played better and I was dissapointed we did not keep a clean sheet.
Still plenty of hard work ahead but a positive start to the season, well done boys.
