OUR Junior teams restarted their seasons after the Christmas break this past weekend as we review a busy day’s action.
It was good to see that all the players and teams were straight back into the swing of things. All our teams played tremendously and showed great professionalism to start the new year in such good form. As a club, our coaches set specific tasks over the few weeks the players were off to ensure that fitness levels were maximised whilst not training.
The U10s had a lengthy commute away to Corby Town but played some outstanding football, which delighted coach L uke Worthington. Top goalscorer George Bringau again added goals to his tally for the season after being well backed up on the goal scoring front by team mates Billy Murphy and Rio Bill.
Our U14s recorded a victory against local rivals Stourbridge. Games between the two sides over the previous few seasons have been fantastic contests, and this time around our boys came away with all three points after in-form Henry Thompson carried on his run of scoring some great goals to put his side one up.
Also at Stourbridge and playing on the adjacent pitch were our U12s who played some great football and were showing some great link up-play when turning defence in to attack. Against a strong Stourbridge side, the boys came away 5-2 winners and certainly justified that with their performance.
At COSE our U11s were competing alongside our U13s and, between the two teams, some great football was being played with both set of coaches coming away with a large number of positives from the games. The Under 13s came away 2-1 victors after goals from Jack Hodgetts and Nabil Elgharrfi, who joined up with the squad just before the turn of the year. This was a great platform for both teams to build on as we head into the second part of the season.
With the U15s having such a long journey to Bath, it was vitally important they started the game well. While they did so, they couldn’t capitalise on their chances, leaving the scores were level at half time. Their second half dominance counted to ensure that they came back up the M5 with three points.
Again, after a tight first half were chances were missed, the U16s came away 3-1 winners having fought hard all game and making their second half possession count to carry on their good run of form in the league.
