On a somewhat miserable afternoon, the U12 boys played in the Surrey Cup covering the best teams in the area. Whilst results may not have gone their way, they played with real heart and commitment and should be proud of their efforts. The first three matches were hard fought affairs and only a single goal separated the teams each time. There were some great saves in goal and we created far more opportunities than the single goal from Joseph E in the third match would suggest. Marking of attackers was a huge improvement, as were the energy levels across everyone. We should remember that most of these opposition clubs are significantly bigger than ours and it is a credit to them that they competed so well.
Thanks go to coach Graham for running the team, as I’m aware that he lives and breathes every shot, pass, goal, save and dodgy umpire decision that occurs.
Thanks also to Gihan Thabrew and Jonathan Barlow for umpiring (and no I wasn't meaning your umpiring!).
