Saturday 25th January 2014 : Under 11's : Inkberrow Eagles 2 Alcester Town 11
With only 9 players available this was always going to be a tough game. Three early goals put us immediately on the back foot and 2 more before half time put the game beyond us. But, I am pleased to say in the second half our heads did not drop. Ben W played a great game and seemed to be in the right place at the right time solidly clearing the ball. Jake in goal was tireless and his goal kicks were much stronger. Greg tore the opposition apart with his pace and crossed the ball sublimely, whilsy Harry running in the box tapped in our first. And surely the goal of the season from our Josh, with his back to the goal, he turned inside and with a lovely left foot shot the ball flying into the top right hand corner leaving the keeper stranded. Unfortunately, Alcester were a strong side and did not relent and
the score reflects this. And thanks to the 2 gallant under 10s (Harry & Ed) drafted in at the last to help out!
At this point the Editor would like to add that having a weekend off himself he was able to watch the under11's in action - some delightful football - well played team - the tenacity, commitment and teamwork was second to none.
