Match report v Ferndale on 26th March ( home)

Castle Combe Colts U11

Matty scored in the first half with a left foot strike after a set up from James.
Freddie ran through and charged down the keeper and it rebounded in.
In between we had some great goalkeeping from Will who kept us in the game. Together with this was some great defending from Harrison who was Man of the Match.
In the 2nd half Matty scored another cracker from the edge of the area.
Finally James chased a lost cause but was rewarded with a goal with a cool finish.

Also the defending was much better with Kwaku playing well as the last defender and Seby, Cole and Harrison all keeping their shape more. Sam also impressed in goal, especially with his long kicks! Brandon was busy on both flanks too! The Colts certainly passed it quicker, defended goal kicks, and were looking for those through balls more, plus we headed the ball better!
Overall one of our best performances of the season- well done!

Things to improve on:
-We still had chances to hit the space behind the defenders either passing down the wing or a clever pass through the middle.
-Passing still needs to be quicker- against the top teams we must do this!

U11s v Trowbridge Town Print

Match report
Castle Combe Colts U11s v Trowbridge Town ( cup) on 29th January 2017.

Colts had an absorbing match against very strong opposition. We started very well, creating chances down both wings, especially with Freddie and Joel linking up.
Clever through balls and finishing from Trowbridge saw then score twice but Matty got us back in the game with a splendid left foot curled shot. Unfortunately we didn't clear from a corner and Trowbridge added a third. Despite this CCCFC continued to fight hard, with James scoring from a speedy run and shot from down the wing before half-time.
Our back four worked very well nearly all game to contain them, with a great partnership developing between Seby and Cole in the middle of defence, and Will and Kwaku, as well as Sam being solid in their wing back roles.
Matty continued to drive us forward, while Ollie worked hard on the left; but again despite chances, the game went away from us towards the end as we chased the game, and despite some great saves from Bailey. The Colts scored the final goal of the game after a fine run and finish from Will, who was Man of the Match.

Overall we were delighted with the performance. We just need to be more clinical in front of goal, taking our chances better, as well as looking for those through balls to the strikers like Trowbridge did.
We now will be in the subsidiary cup so keep up the fantastic effort boys in our new competition.

CCCFC U11 v Stratton Juniors Print

First and foremost - great performance, I liked the battling and commitment during the match.  
Apart from a few situations, I feel our defensive line is improving. The back three were more aware while taking responsibility that we stayed as a tight unit.
I was happy to hear Cole instructing the backline, I can see an improvement with that.
Our midfield four supported Joel up top very well, energy levels when breaking forward was good to see. Our midfield were always in the game because Joel hold up play was effective.

Stratton where a good footballing side, however we all made it difficult for them today. You all should take great pride and credit from this win as our one touch play caused Stratton problems along with one two's which led to one of our goals.  I would say we need to get into the habit doing this more often because it's a great way to relief pressure as well as creating goal scoring opportunities.

Our pressure play was fine in stages, however I do feel we could do more. If you give your opponent less time on the ball they will be more likely to make mistakes presenting us with situations to create chances and scoring.
Just get into the habit of thinking, as soon as my opponent receives the ball I should be there when they take the first touch.

Finally,thank you again for coming and playing well. See you all at training.

CCCFC U11 V Highworth (away) Print

Trophy match v Highworth ( away) on 13th November.

Castle Combe Colts put on on a fantastic performance- a real joy to watch as coaches! Everyone ran their socks off and gave 100%, passing the ball very well and making a decent Highworth team look in trouble from the start. Matty opened and completed the scoring, and in between Freddie finished a lovely move and James scored five for the second week running. However it was a complete team performance.
Special mentions to Bailey who showed real promise in goal, Harrison for his tenacity and chasing back, Cole for his great passing out from the back, Kwaku for his driving forward from defence to set up attacks, Nick for switching the play so effectively in CDM role, Sam for his running down the right wing and Will for his clever link up play.
Things to improve:
1. When in defence knowing when to clear it, or kicking the ball out of play when in trouble.
2. We still want a headed goal from corners/ free kicks/ crosses!

However keep up the superb improvement!
