What a start to the new season and a return to competitive football!
The team was led by their inspirational captain Toby and we started well with a 0-0 draw against Bishop Alexander where they did everything but score. Goalkeeper Sophie didn't even touch the ball as she was well protected by Ethan and Maisie. Dylan worked hard through the middle with India and Harry supporting but the ball wouldn't go in the net. The next game was a similar story against Chuter Ede Balderton. Oliver and Oscar made their debut's but once again we put them under a lot of pressure but couldn't score. This was the best game we have had in a long time against Chuter Ede and we were very unlucky not to beat them.
John Hunt were next and the game was once again all one way traffic with Farndon battling to try and find the net with some beautiful link play and tireless running from the team. Unfortunately they had a break against the run of play and the ball found the back of the net.
Last game was against Barnby Road - another large school. This was the most evenly balanced and competitive match of our tournament. Farndon continued to battle and we were extremely unlucky to be beaten 1-0. Another draw would have been fairer - but that is tournament football.
Coach Nick was very proud of the team and the way they had committed themselves. He is looking forward to the league games where we will have longer games and more opportunities to score and show off our skills.
