Saturday 16th November 2013......So off to the Under 11's first....take it away DC....
U11's : Inkberrow Eagles 1-9 Ilmington
Oh dear - slow out from the blocks and sleepy from the half term we were 3-0 down before we knew it. Desperate for the ball we forgot positioning and bunched round the ball. More ping pong football in the box and some terrible ricochets and the game was well beyond us. Half time and we re-grouped. Positions were held and we remembered to pass. Lovely control from Will who took on and passed players. Dom's touch was a delight and some really nice passing brought a beautiful controlled goal from Dom. Much better and pleased that the boys played to the final
whistle. Man of the Match Dom.
Eckington this coming weekend - we look forward to the news update from this much awaited match ;-)
And now to the Under 10's Mr S.....how did we fare in the Cup away at Crowle?
U10's : Crowle Juniors 8-2 Inkberrow Eagles
Editor, Sir, a morning of fresh hope was cruelly blown away by some belligerent and direct football by the opposition. Full credit to Crowle, they bossed the midfield and attacked and defended in numbers in the first half. Some early hope saw Luka put a shot just wide of the Crowle goal. After that, the monotony of the attacks and end results (goals unfortunately) meant at half time it was looking grim. For the first time this season the team faced mission impossible after 25 minutes - it was 6-0. And worse news as the half time team talk came to its conclusion, Harry S was besieged with blisters and was in some pain. But, like the whole team in the second half, did he give up - no...second half pride was restored, and well taken goals from Ed and Hadley meant that in the second half at we made an even battle of it. There was also some resolute defending which we need to take forward for our final 3 games of 2013 before Xmas against Droitwich, Tewkesbury and Littleton. For his defending in the match, Man of the Match this week is Harry N with special mention to Harry S for battling through the pain for the team when all seemed lost. Well done boys!
Droitwich this Saturday at home, ko 1030am next to the tennis courts. Come on you Eagles!
