⚽️ Under 8 Yellows Match Report ⚽️

On Saturday we took on Horwich RMI Blues which we knew would of been a good test and it’ll give us a good understanding of we were at in terms of our own development as a team with the being a very good side.

We started off slow and gave RMI a couple of chances which they took to put us behind in the first few minutes. It didn’t take long though for Archie to get into his stride and place 3 cracking strikes in top corners. He’s been a revelation since he joined us a few months ago. As the game was going on there was some very good football on display from both teams. Aaron was a colossal at the back for us every time he’s on the pitch we look that little bit more assured at the back. I know I say it often but he’s shades of Van Dijk! None stop running from Finlay and Milo kept the Horwich back line under pressure and some surging runs from Elliot kept them on their toes. Some outstanding goalkeeping from Riley, Josh, Harry and Finlay kept us in the game as it was very end to end and both teams had chances. With 5 minutes to go we were a couple of goals behind and it looked like we wasn’t going to get anything from the game. Up steps Luca..with 2 sensational long range shots to grab a draw right at the end.

Overall we didn’t play to the standards I know we are capable of but Horwich RMI Blues are a quality side and we did very well to match them for the full game even when we wasn’t 100% at the races.


MOTM was a tough one this week as 2 people shone above the rest. Aaron who I’ve already dubbed as the next Van Dijk had a brilliant game at the back, receiving the ball off the keeper to then draw in a defender to then take him on and play out from the back but then to also have that game management of knowing when to just get rid of the ball in tricky times. The second person was Elliot. Elliot Was only meant to be training and joining us at 7 a side next season but due to players not being available he’s jumped in at every opportunity and never let us down. His performances are of the highest order and he’s got bags of ability by taking players on and making surging runs from defence. I was particularly pleased that he’s starting to listen to me and Brian tactically and being more aware of his position which he did brilliantly on Saturday! Well Done Boys! 😁

Thanks to TMT, R and J primrose Valley and Medway Heating for your continued support!

⚽️ U9 Girls Yellow Match Report ⚽️

We arranged a friendly with Darwen this weekend and after a bit of a mix up and some unfortunate injuries we started with 6-a-side. This was tough for the opposition but credit to them for still wanting to get a game on for the girls.

We wanted to challenge the girls to control possession of the ball and encourage passing around in the oppositions half. We set up with two of our more attack minded girls in defence in Addison and Maddie to challenge them to hold their positions and join in with the attack at the right time. They both did this really well as they were quick to break down any counter attacks and then rebuild to create our own chances.

Elsa was set the challenge to get a shot on target to encourage her to shoot. Before the game I spoke to Elsa about the area she’d need to be in to make this possible. Elsa showed she was up for this as within 5 minutes she had her shot on target which kissed the post on its way in 🙌 This was a great moment for Elsa as it was her first goal for the team and her look of shock turned to delight as she realised she’d earned her Simple Dimple as a promise from her Mum and Dad! Great work 👍

But the excitement didn’t end there as Macie came out of goal in exchange for Maddie. I had encouraged some players to take shots from outside of the goalkeepers area and now Macie took this challenge on. As the ball landed at her feet around the halfway line she sent it screaming into the back of the net, a goal that Beckham, Rooney and even Patrik Schick would be proud of! 🙌

In the second half the girls really started to show off their passing as well as their movement off the ball with some great build up play from Phoebe, Lara and Maddie. They held their positions really well and were making all the right forward runs into the attacking areas. We have been working hard in training with choosing the right time to make a run forwards as well as encouraging the girls to look for a pass first and make that decision quicker.

Scarlett was also set a challenge to take a player on. Scarlett is really good with the ball at her feet to be able to get out of a tight space. So I wanted to Scarlett to build on this to push past a player to create space to shoot. Scarlett manage to achieve this and was rewarded with a goal for her efforts 👍

The game had a nice variety of goals with moments of individual brilliance, well worked team goals and an even a poachers finish by Anabella 👌 But the overall performance from the whole team was impressive from goalkeeper to attack!

Girl of the Game was awarded to two players today. Firstly Elsa for absolutely smashing her individual challenge. After scoring her goal early in the game she didn’t stop there and must have finished with 3-4 shots on target. Her eagerness to win the ball back quickly was also good to see and she had willingness to dribble at her opponents. Well done Elsa!! The second player was Addison who had a different role to play today in defence compared to recent weeks. Addison was quick to intercept many passes and also wasn’t afraid to dribble towards her own goal to create space. From there she was able to build up our attacks, and managed to communicate well with both Maddie and Macie in defence to decide who should go forwards! Well done Addison!
