U8/U9 A and B versus Moor Park
After a wet week we travelled to Moor Park safe in the knowledge we would be using their astro pitch rather than slipping around in the mud! Their astro was still a little slippy but at least we didn’t get covered in mud, although for some of our boys that is their favourite part of games at the moment!
Altogether we had quick, focused warm up then split in to two teams. The A’s started brightly with Wallace narrowly heading, powerfully wide from a precise corner. Ryan started positively in goal and we held our own in an evenly matched game.
‘On Tuesday 31st of January the under 9As played Moor park. The weather was wet and miserable but we still played well! We had great support from our parents which helped our game. Our team work was good and our defence was brilliant. Oscar got an injury from brave defending but still carried on. It was a good game even with any goals. Everyone played well, especially Tom. Good luck in your next matches.’
‘Abberley started well scoring one goal in the first half. Moor Park defended well, Yoan ran up the side line and chipped the ball to Gabriel who unfortunately got tackled. Gabriel took the corner, passed it to Josh who passed it back to Yoan who scored! Henry also hit the post.
In the second half we started strongly, we had 3 or 4 shots saved by their keeper. They had a good start from the kick off passing well down the line and before we could do anything they had equalised! Final score 1-1, good luck in your next matches.’

So a super afternoon of football and a welcome tea afterwards for all the hungry boys and parents.
