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.
