Under 11


North Wilts League U11 Purple Development


NWL U11: AFC Newbury Whites v CCCFC Print


Let me start to say how pleased I am with everyone attitude and determination today.
Goals from Matty, Joel (2)
We started well and kept our shape especially the three defenders. Communication is improving and we are becoming more aware if we leave our positions.
We opened the scoring with Matty’s lovely left foot drive bottom corner.
Newbury then did well to get themselves back into contention.  
Second half - straight from kick off Will  got beyond his man and delivered  A class cross to which Newbury again done well to clear.  
This was typical example of the boys attitude. We had great team spirit and was willing to do the tough work for our teammates.
Joel with his battling and persistent display manage to make a chance for himself. Keeper tried to narrow the goal however it wasn't enough as he nicely slotted bottom left.
Then we scored again - Harrison now playing left mid made a great pass to Joel who drilled his shot top right, keeper no chance.

Player summary:
Kwaku - calm nature and tough tackling kept our back line in check.
Cole - Great attitude and reading of the game. Your talking is improving it helps your team mates so keep it up.
Matty - Your energy and intelligent plays was evident throughout the match. Again communication was perfect lovely job.
Harrison - I was very impressed with your workrate off the ball. You battled well and your final ball  was good to see. You assisted Joel for his second.
Sam - The CDM role is perfect for you, your movement and understanding as well as positioning is becoming second nature.
Will - I should call you David Beckham, your crossing was spot on. You were involved throughout the match great job.
Nick - wing play was magical, could be tipped as Ryan Giggs (can you tell I'm a united fan). You have settled in really well and have been taking on board what myself and Darren have asked.
Freddie - Your Dynamic plays caused Newbury problems all game. Your now deciding when to dribble and when to pass. Keep this up.
Joel - two good goals but your attitude to stay relevant is great to see. What I mean by that, always willing to stay in the game and providing an option for your team mates.
Boys please note I was very impressed not just by the result but your attitudes. You have showed me the levels you can reach so I don't won't us dropping below that.
What I will mention, stamina is something we also need to work on. But we will get there.
Good job to you all.

U11: Match report v Newbury (away) Print

Castle Combe U11s v Newbury on 18-09-16

Combe travelled to Newbury for their first away match this season with Joel and Sam both shooting superbly from long range. The match showed the areas we need to improve. First of all positives...
1. There was some good possession and passing
2. Pleasing wing play and crossing into the box.
3. In the second half the defence played better together.
4. Running and closing down opponents, especially from Joel, Sam and Nick.
5. Chances created...

Now the things to work on boys...( parents please discuss if possible)
1. When in defence choosing when to play offside and when to drop off- Sometimes it's better to do one or the other.
2. Gambling or trying something, like making runs into the box to meet a cross, trying a short corner or following up incase the keeper spills it.
3. Final pass or shot to be better.
4. Fitness and non stop effort needed from EVERY player for the WHOLE match!

Let's try all those things next week in the cup- we know you CAN do it!

CCCFC V Swindon Rangers match report Print

Castle Combe v Swindon Rangers
Colts gave a convincing performace in their first league match. An own goal after great Freddie cross opened the scoring before a great low shot from Joel found the target. Still in first quarter, James scored after a great cross from Sam and set up from Joel. Joel banged it in after good build up play. At half time,  Freddie ran through and cracked it in.
After changes after first quarter Combe passed quicker but didn't finish their chances.
Some sloppy defending allowed Rangers to score. Combe responded with Will slotting it home after a great passing. Will scored another with a superb long shot. Joel dribbled and set up James, who finished.
There were superb saves from Nick in between after he had some hard shots saved well playing earlier in midfield. After Sam smacked it home after great work from Will.
A great through ball from Freddie left Will and then James to tap it in. Finally a wonderful through ball from Sam set up James for his fourth. Special mentions to Cole, Harrison, Kwaku and Seby who got better and better playing offside as a unit. Matty played some lovely passes and set up numerous attacks.
Overall a very pleasing win! It was especially pleasing to see the boys keeping their shape and passing going against a weaker opposition. Well done the Colts!
