Aspley Guise Panthers vs WWFC Hurricanes U8

Saturday’s game, as with many of the other games we have played this season, was an even affair, and yet again we were unlucky not to get more in respect to the result. If it wasn’t for some fantastic goalkeeping by the Aspley team in the final quarter, it would have been a different story.

Both the team’s outfield set ups we played in each of the four quarters were very well balanced. In each of the quarters all the boys stuck to what was asked of them. We created many opportunities and it was good to see we used the width of the pitch a little more this week, managing to get crosses into the box early. There was some outstanding defending on display and some cracking goals were scored.

We are at home this coming Saturday to City Colts, kick off time to be confirmed but it is likely to be 11.30.

WWFC U8 Hurricanes vs Wing Raiders FC

Another cracking game to watch, full of action and some fantastic goals from both teams. All boys yet again put in great performances, with some excellent interplay and great decision making on show. This was good to see as it’s something we have been working hard on over the past few weeks at training.

We don’t have a league game now until the 17th November – I’m looking to hold a training session this Saturday 9-10am at Bow Brickhill for those who are interested and waiting to see if we can get a friendly organised for the week after. The next Wednesday training back at Powerleague will be Wednesday 7th November.


Toddington Rovers vs WWFC Hurricanes U8

Another cracking game to watch – with all boys putting in fantastic performances.

We deserved more from Saturday’s game than we took away – we created numerous chances that either went close, hit posts or were saved on the line with last ditch defending by Toddington. I was encouraged to see less ball following from the team as we managed to keep shape a little better.

Some excellent goalkeeping and defending were displayed, as well as some clever inter play when the team moved forward.

We are at home to Wing Raiders Ninjas this Saturday – time to be confirmed but it’s likely to be an 11.30 kick off.

Woburn & Wavendon Hurricanes U8 vs Newton Longville

Saturday’s game saw less than ideal playing conditions, with driving rain and strong winds for the boys to contend with.  We also met another tough side in Newton Longville, they were well organised and showed very good movement off the ball.

Despite the visitors controlling long periods of the game we continued to defend well as a team, with some excellent emergency defending and goalkeeping on display. When we did have good periods in the match we pressed and passed well. Of the two sides we ended the match the stronger.

We will look to work on out of possession drills and working the ball out from defense on Wednesday night. We are due to play Toddington Rovers U8 this coming Saturday, details to follow when I have them.
