Under 12s : Welford Panthers 1-7 Inkberrow Eagles
First game of the season and the hard preseason training made the difference. Away to Welford we worked on the basics: shape and passing. Early pressure told and we got a penalty that Will coolly scored. Brilliant. Greg was like a train and with wonderful deft touches from Dan, Harry and Will we scored one after another. Harry also scored playing round the keeper after being put through by Will. Nice strong strikes from Greg and some persistent poacher goals. However the play was not one sided and there were some great finger touch saves from Duncan and great clearances from Ben K and Ben W. Half time we went in at 6-1. Second half we tired a bit but Max played well up front and nearly got through on goal, Jake was tireless in defence and Ed helping out from the U11s was a constant threat and scored a lovely hard goal.... 7-1 up and I began to relax! The final whistle came and our first league win......Fantastic result and effort from the boys. All won Man of the Match. Great from everyone - I am so pleased for all the boys - their hard work through last season deserved the win. Well done....what a start!
