U9 Football at Manor Lodge

For many of the boys playing in this fixture it was the first time they had played competitive football, unless they play for a local club. Considering that, the standard of football was really good, especially with the A teams. In these matches the teams were evenly balanced and a centimetre either way was the difference between winning and losing. So far, from the Lockers Park view, the season has been dominated by goalies. Today Max and Nikandros stood out for some very brave keeping – something mentioned by the opposition coaches. There was also some sterling work on the field. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a boy cover so much ground as Ethan did for the A team. All in all a very promising start to the season.
