U12s Away at Timperley B

It has only been a few weeks since we last played Timperley B, in the cup, and with a couple of additions from their 'A' Team (No it weren't B.A. Baracus), it was a little more of a contest.  Half term upon us, we managed to get a nice blend of experience and young/new players plenty of game time, with 11 turning out.  Our defence looked formidable, with their sheer size and presence in the shape of Ethan, Alfie and Jacob B (Combined experience of 30 games).  The balls were contested all over the pitch, and with good competition at face, we were comfortable but never quite ran away with it.  With a 1-5 Q1, and a 1-4 Q2, we went into half time with a nice lead of 7, and started to swap things about.  Got caught offside a couple of times, with our inexperience and enthusiasm, but we managed to swap things about, with a 1-6 Q3, before a final 1-4 Q4, leaving us with a 4-19 victory.  I appreciate its a team game, but felt that Luca, Ben and Jay (who offloaded today) are all improving massively and look forward to seeing their improvements for years to come.
6 Different scorers, and 10 goals assisted, todays scorers were Jacob B (2), Ben (2), William (3), Jay (3), Hugo (3), Cameron (6).
A much sterner test this weekend, against Cheadle.
Every ball being contested from the outset

Not a lot too do today - Apart from wind people up!

Nice Up Check - Been taught well
