Match Report

Today we had another early fixture against Haughton Green.

As the first half kicked off the tactics that Haughton Green
used seemed to confuse the boys with their goalkeeper coming  
out of his goal at every opertunity and Haughton green took contol
of the game Scoring very quickly. You could see that the boys 
where rusty and had not had any football for a week and with the 
boys all making mistakes and confusing themselves in what they 
needed to do and being made to pay, which the boys are finding out.
All the boys where finding it hard but Connor shone out as he did 
everything we asked him to do but thankfully the ref blow for half
time which meant we could get the boys together and have a chat.

During half time we asked the boys if they wanted to give up or go
back out and play some football with there mates and have fun, all 
the boys shout at me saying they wanted to play football with there 
mate so we told them what they needed to do and most of all smile.

The second half got under way and Thomas did exactly what was asked 
of him and chased every ball and put their keeper under presure which 
lead us to our first score of the day by Harun. Owen  started to put
in those big tackles we are used to seeing and Big Josh stared using 
his hands and by doing this kept a clean sheet in the second half. 
With the team now having a solid base this allowed the boys to play 
more attacking and this proved positve with Harun scoring another two
getting his first hat trick for the club and Harvey got his first goal
for the team and how he celabrated, and he may not have got on the score
sheet but little josh worked so hard closing down and battling for the 
ball which lead to the boys getting there chances to score goals. With 
all the boys playing their part they turned the table on Haughton green
and dominated the second half.
