Under 12's : Inkberrow Eagles 0-2 Wellard Lions
This was an exciting match and we played some excellent football, both individually and as a team. The weather was cold and wet and we were under pressure most of the time. However our passing out of defence and constant commitment to win the ball held us in good stead. Greg and Josh both had good runs and Harry controlled the midfield with Will and Tom. As usual, Ben K and Ben W were fantastic in defence, and Lewis's drag and nutmeg was a joy to see. Eventually Wellard pressure told and we conceded a break away goal and a well worked free kick. The final whistle came and the Wellard team were relieved to win saying this had been their hardest match. I look forward to the return match and more excellent football from Inkberrow. Man of the match Harry - great running and control.

Under 12's : (CUP) Inkberrow Eagles 0 - 7 Lenches
This was always going to be a tough match with a cup draw to play a top team from the A division. Within the first 2 minutes we concede 2 penalties. But Ben W in goal saves the first and the second hits the post - great! However we were always under pressure and some great defending from Will sees us go in 2 nil down. Second half their players are all present and they bring on a pair signed up to West Bromwich Academy. Needless to say they waltzed through our defence and we were concentrating on a damage limiting exercise. The boys worked hard at their passing and playing down the wing and with Greg striking and Harry and Josh supporting we were unlucky to score. I am pleased with the boys performance and the work down the wing from Josh, Will and Greg. A tough game and a harsh result but the boys worked hard to the whistle. I am proud of their spirit and commitment.

Under 12's : Inkberrow Eagles 2-3 Crowle SearchersWell - what 2 cracking goals of the season. A great through pass from Greg to Harry. Who skilled round a defender and coolly slotted in past the outcoming goalie and a wonderful lob by Greg over the keeper into the back of the net. However our defending needed to be tighter and we were undone by a determined team. A great game that went end to end. All the players worked hard and Jake and Harry must have run miles. Ben W was outstanding in defence and fed the mid-field down the wing with lovely passing football. Ben K up front had a strike at goal and Lewis worked hard in mid field hassling and hounding for the ball. We need to work hard on our defence and strength and on our passing game. Very harsh score line but some great exciting football.

Under 12's : Inkberrow Eagles 6-0 Welford Panthers
For the first 15 minutes we struggled to get a grip on the game - playing out of position and hacking the ball out to anyone. However we settled and began to apply constant pressure and our passing game. Pressure told and Greg and Josh scored 2 each in the first half - Josh in particular scored a half volley after lovely passing and Greg scored a hard fought scramble in goal, Unfortunately Welford heads dropped for the second half and we could play football under little pressure. Great passing from mid field - and Dan smashes one into the back of the net - great goal. Josh gets his hat-trick with a looping bouncing ball and the scoring is done. Great game from all players but man of the match is Josh for his hat-trick
