Colts C v Packwood
Despite the freezing conditions the Abberley boys got stuck into this match straight away and showed how much they were up for it. Packwood also got stuck in and it was quite end to end towards the beginning of the game. Abberley kept their focus though and gradually began to ramp up the pressure. Gabriel made a couple of fantastic saves in the first half and Harry and Billy supported him well in defence. Sometimes some last- ditch tackles had to be made, particularly by Harry! Luca, Archie and Ed played well in midfield and were confident carrying the ball forward and generally were good at getting back and helping the defence. Guy was determined and proactive upfront and had a few chances at goal.
We entered half time 3-0 up and the boys were keen to try out some different positions, so this is what we did. As the match came to its closing stages everyone seemed quite tired but it showed how hard they had battled, especially with no substitutes. Overall Ed scored a fantastic hat trick and guy scored one too. A brilliant effort boys, well done!
