U12 League Cup Semi Final - Bath Arsenal 2 CCCFC White 1 Print
Season 14/15 - Under 12 White

This was an absolutely fantastic performance from our lads. We were 1-0 up at half time (Joe BW) and creating chance after chance. We created a situation where we had a real chance of carrying out a giant killing and taking a place in the final.

In the first half we started off a little nervously but soon warmed to the task. Max had to come to our rescue and parry a point blank shot over the bar but after that it was all Colts. As requested by the coach the guys stayed very disciplined in keeping 3 at the back -Joe, JJ and Felix were absolutely fantastic the entire match. Ben, Ted, JoeBW and Louie were breaking from midfield and creating Bath some issues whilst Angus came on and supplied pace and strength when we needed a boost. JBW in particular was giving the Arsenal defence more trouble than they could handle. Archie worked like a trojan up front and Jay + Max tackled everything that moved. Tom made a couple of stunning saves in the second half but could do nothing as Bath scored 2 to take the tie. I think it was more superior fitness that told in the end, as it certainly wasnt football ability or attitude that failed us!

Every player did himself proud against the second best team in the whole league - I am a very proud manager. The Bath manager told me this was one of their closest games this season. Lets apply this to the league programme and grab that playoff title chance.
