Cambridgeshire & District Colts League U13A Division – 25 April 18

After a thrilling Cup final against Bluntisham at the weekend, we were back to business in the league to try and keep winning the title a possibility. 

The first half came alive as soon as Daniel Legg swept a twenty yard shot in to the goal. It seemed to wake up Bluntisham. If it wasn’t for Luis in goal they would have been on equal terms straight away.

We let them back in with a couple of minutes to go to half time and we where at 1-1. 

It seemed difficult to get motivated so we swapped some players and freshened up the team. This for once did us no favours and Bluntisham got in behind again for their second. This brought us back to life and we seemed to move the ball better. A great through ball by Luke Dunn and Damien Boakye smashed it past the keeper. Then in a cruel turn of events from a corner, Billy headed the ball past our own keeper. It then clicked. We went straight down their end and Alfie helped himself to a goal and we running hot. The next goal by Damien was spectacular from out side the box. He hit it sweetly with his left foot in to the top right corner.

Ben Hunter the floated the ball out to the right and Luke Dunn then crossed the ball to be parried by the keeper, then Harry stole it in the box and put the ball in the net.

The next goal was incredible. The Bluntisham defence cleared the ball to the half way line and Billy just smashed the ball back. It looped over everyone and dropped in the goal. We were a little lacking in enthusiasm tonight, but we played our way back into a game when it looked like going all horribly wrong.

Cambridgeshire & District Colts League U13A Division – 15 April 18

After two weeks off for Easter, we really needed to get up and going today against a Panthers side that have been getting results of late. In the first fifteen minutes we put them under pressure and some really good chances passed us by from great goalkeeping and poor finishing. However, we stuck at it and kept switching the ball. Daniel Legg moved down the left and floated the ball across the box to see Luke Annis smash the ball on the half volley at the keeper who parried it back to him and he smashed the ball in the back of the net. That seemed to settle us down. We had a few more chances, however the Panthers had some as well and our Goalkeeper Luis made two world class saves at point blank range. With five minutes left before half time Alfie Baker smashed the ball into the bottom left hand corner to give us the 2 goal advantage we really deserved for all the work we had put in. 

In the second half with a couple of changes and different tactics we really went out to take the Panthers to task. We started very brightly, began to move the ball quicker and once again Alfie Baker clipped the ball from 20 yards out and the ball was in the back of the net. Within 5 minutes Carlo Giove got in behind and slotted the ball past the keeper. Just make the day complete, his brother Gino courtesy of a cross from Luke Dunn put the ball in the bottom left hand corner to seal a 5-0 victory. It was a great performance from the lads today.

Cambridgeshire & District Colts League U13A Division – 25 March 18

A very hard fought game today. It was one of two halves. We started bright and fast and were rewarded with a fantastic strike from Daniel Legg that looped over the goalkeeper from 30 yards. The game then became a bit scrappy on a heavy pitch which didn’t give any chance to play the ball on the ground as it just simply got stuck in the mud. Both teams were matched for chances but nothing materialised until a minute from half time  when Gino Giove stole in and laced the ball into the bottom right hand corner.

Ely came out in the second half more determined and more physical. We stood firm for twenty minutes until a ball over the top combined with a cool finish by their striker made the game more interesting. It was one of those days just in front of goal when the ball didn’t bounce right and the post came to the rescue. Suttie had a few chances, so did Chambers and Baker, however, we could not finish them off. With 3 minutes to go another long ball and a deflection and Ely were in for the draw.

Today we became a team. I don’t say this lightly, however, we had good old determination to do well. Every player worked for one another against a physical Ely team. I am so proud of the concentration levels and the determination of my players today. They all learnt a lot about each other and showed me that they have the right character to play for this great club. My thanks go to Ely for a hard game today and all the best for the rest of the season.

Man of the Match – Billy Chambers
A simply wonderful performance at left back today. He did all the hard work by winning the ball back and his distribution was superb. He was unlucky not to score on a couple occasions. Well done Billy. You deserve the recognition from the great form you’ve been in recently.

My thanks goes to Ollie Coatsworth for going in goal today as we were a few players down and once again he was brilliant. We’re still unbeaten in 2018. My thanks to all the family and friends that came to watch. You should be very proud of the boys today with their attitude to the way they played the game.

The lads really put on a dynamic performance today from start to finish and the measure was how we would defend our goal and how the defence could move the ball quick into the next third of the pitch. The ball was won in midfield due to the ability to have three at the back. We have learnt to stretch the play with use of the wings. The goals were all built from passing and movement, making space for some spectacular goals.  Alfie Baker, both of Louis Roswell’s and Louis Gill  scored with great twenty yard finishes.

I would also like to say well done to the team. We played 2 different formations today and every player adapted to the game. If the boys continue to focus on their play and give themselves the belief to carry on  we can be contenders for the league. To the parents and supporters thanks again for your support. The boys really played well and gave us a great Mothers Day treat.

There was not just one team in this. Burwell to their credit played well and never gave up. To Kenny and his team at Burwell, good luck for the rest of the season .

After a couple weeks off after half term we knew that the first ten to fifteen minutes would be hard to get going. We made a few chances but nothing special and the game just seemed to be played in the middle of the pitch. We made a couple of changes on the wings and we started to open Wratting up and we missed two in front of goal. Then from a shot out side the box the ball bounced off the goalkeepers chest and Alfie was there to pop the ball home.

We started the second half with more determination to do better in the final third and within a minute the ball was in the back of the Wratting net after wicked deflection off a Wratting player. We then seemed to settle down and relax. The movement and passing that we played really stretched Wratting and gave space for Dan L to hit a thirty yard thunder bolt into the top corner. We simply carried on keeping the ball and moving and two minutes later Louis. R placed a ball from twenty yard into the left hand corner. With ten minutes to go we swapped the front pair and straight away Harry banged the ball in the back of the net from a cross from the right. Then with the same type of cross again this time from the left allowed Gino to smash in on the volley.

We really looked good today control from the team from back to front was fantastic. Great to have a full team to select from.

Man of the match – Daniel Legg. Great finishing and enthusiasm for the game.

This was probably our best pass and movement display so far this season. We asked the players to keep to their job roles and responsibilities and they all did. A great clean sheet for our defensive line who controlled the game from start to finish.

Good luck to West Wratting for the rest of the season .
