Match Report

Sunday 21st November 2021: U12 Wanderers v. Alnwick

Today on a bitterly cold, windy morning we entertained Alnwick who we played away last week and beat handsomely.

As Tony and I told the guys, they will come here to regain some respect and spoil our party.
How true it was, they came at us with their number 12 having a go at our defence which did hold firm.

After 10 minutes we got a corner which Will dropped right on Tristan's head 1-0. I thought we would kick on from that but Alnwick pushed us back adn with 10 minutes to half time we failed to clear and they blasted the ball into the making it 1-1, no more than they deserved.

The half-time team talk delivered a bit of a rocket from Tony and I to the whole squad to lift their game at least 20%. 

We looked a bit better in the second half and the on- twos were happening, getting our wingers Joseph, Lucas A, Saffie and Logan starting to test their full backs. Lucas and Tristan took turns in trying to add to the score. Will and Fraser began dominating the midfield. Our defence of Matty, the 2 Archies and Che with James sweeping stopped their goal threat. We were getting on top now and Logan went on a mazy run and their defender took him down to give us a penalty!!! Fraser stepped up and walloped it home 2-1.

Logan was giving the full back a roasting with his tricks and pace. On one run 5 minutes from time he delivered a brilliant cross for Tristan to head home making it 3-1. No more score but job done.

This was probably our worst performance in what is a very good season but it is great teams that win when not at their best.

There were a couple who could have won Man of the Match but they picked Fraser as he lead from the front as good captains do. Three more points still unbeaten well done, guys.
