The Under 15’s – Our fifth game of this seasons campaign resulted in another victory and was a 100% better than the previous weeks performance, we started well and took the game to a HB, resulting in some good early shots on goal that their keeper done well to save, we looked solid at the back, comfortable in midfield and dangerous up front, inevitably we did score after 15 minutes from Joey Hamm who pounced on some slack defending to prod the ball home from 6 yards, it was good to see that the lads instead of sitting back on this went for a second and shortly after, the fantastic work rate and effort from Ryan Fleming paid off when his shot from 15 yards beat the keeper to make it 2-0. We looked sharp and I was pleased to see that our work rate increased even after this second goal, which resulted in a third goal from Alex Ward, a very similar goal to Flemos drilled in underneath the keeper, at 3-0 it looked quite safe and the ref blew his whistle for half time.


Second half started and right from the start HB came straight at us, a rollocking of some sorts must have been given to them at half time as they looked a better and brighter team, it took us by surprise I think and we slightly panicked with us giving loose balls away and losing the midfield battle, it was no surprise then that they scored quite easily after 5 minutes and we knew we had to step our game up, this continued for a further 10 minutes or so with us defending and trying to get a foot hold on the game, after about 20 minutes we did settle down and started to play some good football, confidence came back into the team and we should of scored with efforts from Ryan Fleming, Christian Rule and Jack Rhodes, but their keeper was playing out of his skin and producing some wonderful saves, however we did score a fourth through Jack Rhodes, after a wonderful pass from Joe Hamm, Jack like greased lightning got onto it and coolly slotted it past their keeper 4-1, I was happy at this stage and would of took this score line, but in the last minute after conceding a corner, Dylan unfortunately dropped the cross and Jack Rhodes smashed it into his own net 4-2.


This is how the score stayed and the game finished 4-2, we could have had a bagful today but I was happy more with the performance than the score line, we won quite comfortably and that’s good enough for me. I would like to pay special mention to Liam Siddorn today, he sustained a nasty injury today early in the first half, and unfortunately the HB lad he tackled had to go to hospital, thankfully he is ok, but credit to Liam he played through the injury and had a fantastic game, getting my man of the match award so well done to him for his efforts today.


Finally well done lads another win and hopefully it will continue, long way to go yet and teams will get better as the season progresses, so keep it up lads.[1]
