U12's : Inkberrow Eagles 1 -3 Droitwich
I am very proud of our players who put up a fantastic display of football against Droitwich who decided to play 9 + 4 subs against our 8. In many ways this is a deja vu of a match report from last year - not enough players, did well first half but tired in the second against a larger squad. I could name individuals who played well but I think the whole squad was outstanding. I am very disappointed in teams who do not play football in the right spirit and this score in no way reflects on our players. We will continue to play our passing football and work as a unit.
U11's : Welford Juniors 7-0 Inkberrow Eagles
A very similar story to the start of least season. Yet again we are lucky enough to have had a fresh intake of new players who will enrich and strengthen the squad and team moving forward. And with this there will always be a transition period of gelling as a unit and finding natural positions. That we went to last seasons league winners and provided a stern test is testimony to the team. Learnings from the pre-season match 2 weeks ago have been absorbed and there will be an element of highs and lows as the equilibrium is found in the higher league. Each player fought throughout and heads did not go down. There was some lovely passing, and we will work on moving more into space and making the ball do the work a bit more. Overall, a tenacious display with some key areas to work on, but each player should be proud of their enduring spirit to keep fighting right up until the final whistle. This weekend sees the visit of Broadway Utd Youth, 2nd in our league last season, come on you Eagles!
