Kicked off at 9:00 AM

It's 8.45am the sun is shinning the grass glistens with lasts night dew all is set for a cracking game of football. The pitch was hard to find for some but few we have a full team. The parents wait in anticipation as their kids step on the field in there boots The referee signal to the keeperd and we are off! The ball breaks in our 18yrd box the boys struggle to clear the ball.The coaches are going ape.The ball clears and we have a few touches in their half. Although we are on the back foot Joe Hulme looks troublesome on the defenders shoulder. The ball breaks,Joe chases the ball down and blocks the keepers clearance he takes another touch to go round the keeper and slots it in the back of the net . Cheer cheer cheer 15 mins in 0-1 to royton The ref points to the spot and we reset Radcliffe kick off and put us under pressure straight away. We battle in midfield but we are not hitting the ground this morning.We concceed a corner kick! The delivery is a good one and there defender rises above everyone else and nuts it past our keeper.The coaches are going daft on the sidelines.1-1 22mins in We go again there are 2 blondes stood near by. God! I hope they shut up soon or I must move elsewhere to do this commentary. Our opponents attack again they shoot!Our defender jumps with his hands raised and concedes a free kick.His mum jumps and screams the ref turns and points to the spot.The boy steps up you can see his nerves James eye balls him like John wayne out of an old western The player strikes the ball only to hit the post.1-0 to James our opponents are rattled. We battle to find our swing Hulmey shouts from the sidelines Fraz gives his roar and the boys push on.Radcliffe are frustrated as really they have had the better of the play.We start to get the ball about with Owen making up for his handball :) with some strong challenges and Jack moves the ball about swiftly. We find the ball on the righthand side we take a foul(These boys are starting to Foul us now).Ethan steps up to take the free kick 30 rds from the right of the goal.He seems to cross the ball but this deceives the defenders and the ball flys in the back if the net.Get in 30 mins in 2-1 Royton now it's on.We retreat to our half and take instructions from both sides of the pitch.They kick off and attack we pump the ball up field there number 5 is a gobshite he's took 2 of our boys out and this ref seems to only see our fouls There goes the whistle few.Ill carry this on away from the mothers meeting if I hear go Harry one more time :) The boys drink from the bottles while listening to their half time talk Some parents go for refreshments but no sooner are they gone than we kick off again.We are down hill this half I think the home team missed a trick here They attack through a long ball and with a mix up between defender and keeper they round our man and slot it in the net 50mins 2-2 We go again we are getting into this game and we break down the left through ethan who crosses the ball in behind the defence with a great finish by Harry.57 mins in Harry Harry I'm at it now go lad! we jog back while the boys high five each other this is getting good. I They kick off they come at us with some good play our defenders cope with good clearances and some good work on the flanks.Their numer 5 is at it again. After hacking down Pedro his brother shouts out in Portuguese I only guess what was said.The ref gets it wrong again Pedro smiles and rubs himself down.We break again and quick thinking Colby shoots and catches the goalkeeper off guard 60 mins in 2-4 royton Surley we have this now Radcliffe are unbeaten and are not happy We collect the ball and Jack takes the ball and completes what's becoming a trade mark pass Quick and simple The boys attack but lose the ball up feild .Oh no they break down the left with the ref giving a dubious free kick we clear but they find the ball again on the right they run past our defence and score making it 3-4 on 63 this all stemmed from a poor decision by the ref We hold on for the next few minutes while our opponents kick us and call us But it's all in vain the ref blows his whistle to signify the end of the match. The boys almost touch hands but we win Coaches comments are poor first few minutes but we need to be more physical Performances mentioned were James in net for his first start if the season And Jack Hanley for when we did play it came though Jack

Well done lads we are moving up the league
