Under 7's vs Welford Juniors - Match Report (10/02/2018)
Saturday February 10 2018Under 7's
Our first game for Wellesbourne Wanderers Under 7’s today in the freezing cold and driving rain at the HRI in Wellesbourne.
In difficult conditions we took an early lead through a great low strike from Theo. Some great team play leading up to his strike allowed him to hit a great shot into the bottom corner.
After switching the team around after 10 minutes, the next 6 players picked up where the first 6 left off and Jackson took us into a 2-0 lead with another great strike.
At half time we changed back to the first 6 players and started where we left off, taking a 3-0 lead with a lovely goal from Harley.
Welford then made some changes, and after injecting some pace into their front line, quickly got themselves back to 3-3. We changed back to the other 6 players and kept things solid for the rest of the half, only for Welford to sneak a winner in the last few minutes.
A great game, considering the conditions, the boys were fantastic. All the hard work we’ve put in as coaches to get these boys to a level where they can compete like that is worth it. To see far they have come from those 4/5 year old players we took on a few years ago to that, was wonderful.
Here’s to a great future as a team together!
