Well our 1st game against Liss from the UK for our 16’s, Liss who played St Pauls the day before and beat them 8-1 but St Pauls did have a few players missing. We also called on a few 16’s from last year just to make up the numbers and a big thanks to them.
The game kicked off , our boys were a bit on the back foot while Liss were right up for it and within five minutes with some good team work took the lead, but our boys do not lay down and hit back strait away with a great strike from Conor. We started to play and as this game panned out we matched this older team(who are all now under 17’s) and played some fantastic football. We took the lead when they stopped for an offside that wasn’t given (play to the whistle) and Luc made it 2-1 only for them to make 2-2 strait away again.
As the game went on Liss did start to tire and threw in a few late but tired tackles a lot of them on Captain Jack who picked himself up and just carried on, we took control Archie knocked one in “Yes Archie”, I think Conor got one with his head the game well and truly under control. Liss got another only for Conor to score from Long distance into the top corner What a strike ! Then to lob the keeper with his outside of his foot it was a joy to watch. Kyle in the middle pulling all the strings had a fantastic game but man of the moment was Conk with 4 fantastic goals. 6-3 FT.
After the game both teams had light refreshments in the clubhouse and were both congratulated for playing the game in the right way,.
Thanks to Liss and good luck for the season and well done to St Peter on our lets hope 1st of many victorys.
