New boys get a start
New boys get a start
It was a lovely morning to play a game of football as we entertained West Bridgford at Caythorpe.
West Bridgford started strong and showed good determination. Lowdham played their normal passing style albeit slowly. Bridgford were reward for their endeavour with an early goal. Was this to be a wakeup call for Lowdham? Not really, to be honest. Although Lowdham kept trying and their effort was OK, they never really got out of first gear.
The thing I like about our group of boys is that even when things aren’t going their way they never give up. They were reward for their ‘never say die’ attitude with an equaliser from one starting debutants Ethan. Well done Ethan your great effort and determination was rewarded with a goal.
Half time 1 – 1
The second half was pretty much the same as the first….. Bridgford pressed hard and Lowdham passed it around. Lowdham did pass it around slightly quicker in the 2nd half and were reward with another goal. Dan slotting home after some good movement and passing. Well done Dan on your first goal for the Blacks (especially as you weren’t feeling 100%).
Bridgford now came strong at Lowdham and some good saves from Owen prevented the equaliser. Lowdham reverted to their counter attacking formation which suited them and a late goal from Eesa made it 3-1 .
The result may seem a bit harsh on Bridgford who worked so hard. Unfortunately that is football.
Owen (MOTM) had a great game with some good saves and excellent distribution, Ben was rock solid and captained very well, James played well as a defensive midfielder and his passing was excellent, Dan was great in midfield and was rewarded with a goal, Eesa had a tough game but never gave up his effort was amazing, Joe’s effort was fantastic and he did some good passing and good challenges, Ethan never stopped running and was rewarded with a goal, Cameron ran hard all and gave their defence a torrid time. Well done boys!
Thanks to the ref and opposition who were a credit to U9 football.
Thanks to the Barmy army! At times it was like having 50000 spectators.
