A 4-1 win!

A late 12:15 kick off today at Beaumont for our under 9s. The boys have previously drawn 3-3 against this team earlier in the season.

The match started with Colts getting the centre kick, Macarbi pressed and took possession but Arthur quickly intervened and got it back up to Alby. Alby drove forward and the quickly won a free kick just outside the box. Macarbi managed to clear it, Arthur grabbed it coming back out of the Macarbi box and got it to Cian. Cian took a shot which the Macarbi goalie dealt with skillfully, luckily Oscar was there to follow up on the other side of the goal.

1 min: ?? Oscar (Cian assist)


The Colts continued to dominate play with Arthur and George blocking every chance the visitors did create. George managed to get the ball away during once such chance, Alby got a good run but his pass was intercepted by Macarbi who made a break back down the centre at our goal. Arthur made a strong tackle, took possession, got past the player and made an excellent long pass directly to Oscar just outside the Macarbi goal. Oscar took a touch and then shot it straight past the goalie.

9 min: ??Oscar (Arthur assist)


The Colts kept most of the possession, passing the ball around and creating chances.

Macarbi capitalised on a defensive mistake when it looked like the ball would go out but they managed to keep it on.

16 mins: ??Macarbi


The Colts looked to correct this and the next goal came before half time. Alby took a shot at goal and the deflection won us a throw in. Elliot made a great throw to Henry. Henry got the ball and had to win it back of the swarming defenders, he got it back to get a strong boot on it lifting it over the goalies head.

20mins: ?? Henry


There was one last job for the Colts before half time, to make sure the win was looking decisive to influence the half time chats. Jonas hadn’t been called into much service during most of the game but a powerful shot demanded all his skills and training and he got his fingers to it to stop them scoring. Jonas commented afterwards it’s one of his first top bin saves and it definitely looked skilful.

HT: ??3-1??

The second half saw Macarbi bring some A game and they were worthy opponents throughout never making it easy and continuing to create chances that we had to defend and save. There was lots of corner practice at both ends. The Colts were excellent throughout, defending and passing well. The game felt highly competitive throughout despite the scoreline.

The final goal came towards the end. Cian won a ball back in our half, passed to Oscar who drove forward, reading the game well as the defenders came for Oscar Alby picked the ball up on a short pass from Oscar. Alby got past the defenders with skill, the goalie came out to stop him but he read it just in time and took an extra touch in another direction before booting it straight into the goal.

46 mins: ??Alby


The final goal wrapped the game up for the boys with them continuing to dominate.

FT ??4-1??

Another great win for the boys. Their focus, passing, keeping, defending, speed and endurance in midfield and shooting skills all paid off today.

Man of the match: Arthur

Great win for the boys today, but we move on to the next team to test us.
