Trophy match v Malmesbury ( home) on 20th Nov 2016

Castle Combe Colts U11s battled well against a strong Malmesbury team containing a lot of FC Wilts players.
CCCFC started slowly ( again!but were back in the game before half time with a goal from James.
In the second half we started much stronger and Matty netted before we ended up conceding twice. Then the fight back started with Joel dribbling through and scoring to create an exciting finish.
1. Seby passing and covering at right back!
3. Bailey in goal, coming out when needed to clear
4. Cole and Kwaku's partnership in defence.
5. Matty controlling midfield when we went 2 up front
6. Ollie and Freddie's wing play.
7. Joel's deep runs from midfield
8. Nick's chasing back and tough tackling
9. Will in CDM role when asked.
10. James' pace up front, hanging on last defender

Things to improve:
1. We MUST pass the ball quicker against these better teams! 1 or 2 touch stuff e.g. More one-twos when in difficulty.
2. MORE COMMUNICATION! Tell your team mates where you want the ball, if you are free... CALL FOR THE BALL!

However keep up the fighting spirit The Colts!

CCCFC U11 Match report Print

Match report v Highworth ( home) on 6th Nov 2016.
Castle Combe Colts produced an improved performance from last week.
Matty sent a great ball through which Joel took past the keeper. After clever shielding in the area, Nick was brought down Joel banged in the penalty. Before half time James did a long kick from goalkeeper position which Joel latched on to to score his hat trick. In the second half Ollie put in a lovely through ball and Joel squared it for James to tap home. Then a great run and shot from Sam ended with James scoring his second. A lovely through ball from Sam and a delicious chip from Joel added to the tally.
James cracked home after great work from Freddie before a beautiful through ball from Will to James set up another. Finally Freddie went on a mazy dribble which the keeper saved and James tapped in to complete the scoring.
Overall Cole, Kwaku, Matty, along with Seby, played excellently in defence and worked together to stop many attacks. Everyone contributed and the work rate was much better from everyone. Well done!

Things to improve;
1. Playing out from the goalkeeper. Make sure passes or kicks go to the wings, short or long ones. Don't put defenders in trouble from our kick.
2. Marking the opposition at corners and goal kicks- make sure you are goal-side and closely marking!

Match report v Blunsdon ( home) Print

CCCFC U11s v Blunsdon (home) on 16 October 2016

Colts went behind after numerous shots on the Blunsdon goal ( straight at the keeper!) with the opposition's first shot on target. After, Joel went on a dribble and score brilliantly. Then sloppy defending in the middle and pushing up at the wrong time led to Blunsdon scoring a second before half time.
In the second half another lapse and lack of shape led to Blunsdon's third. This was despite Cole, Seb, Kwaku and Matty all contributing well to defence. However Joel went on another incredible run to find the net. Then a Freddie mazy dribble led to a cracking top right corner shot from Joel for his hat trick.
Despite numerous chances from James, Will, Sam,Nick and Freddie, all hitting the woodwork or side netting towards the end, and a penalty miss right before the final whistle, The Colts couldn't quite get a fourth goal. Nevertheless it needed Kwaku making a superb last ditch tackle too. Another superb game though!
1. Coming back from another losing situation- it shows the real character and energy of the team.
2. Creating numerous chances, with clever passing and movement.
3. Greater willingness to press the opposition.
Things to work on;
1. Defending in our set positions when we lose the ball to ensure the opposition don't get time to make easy passes to their striker(s).
2. One defender dropping off while the other marks to ensure we don't have 1v1 situations on our goal. Don't always try to play offside!
3. Shooting and finishing!

NWL U11: CCCFC v Fairford Town Print


Great attitude boys from the second quarter onwards.  Team sprit was definitely apparent yet again. When we decide to apply ourselves like I know we can our results will always be a positive one.
Collectively as a whole we battled and pushed ourselves to fight back. Just a personal note to make, we can't always afford to start our matches slowly. Let's try and impose our play from kick off.
A Great build up play led us to attack Fairford inside their own penalty area forcing them to make a last ditched tackle resulting in Fairford bringing down one of our players.  
Joel stepped up and converted the penalty. After that goal CCCFC finally woke up and we began attacking Fairford frequently,creating high number of opportunities. Joel grab his second and what a goal it was. He saw the keeper off his line,showed excellent vision and lobbed him nicely.  
With our attacking play Fairford took their chance with a quick counter attack which they converted.
That didn't seem to knock our confidence and desire to play as we still had an attacking threat.  Our defence were hard to break down at times. Kwaku made challenges after challenges putting everything he could in front of the ball to avoid us conceding again.  
The defensive shape was again good at times communications from the boys is improving.  What I liked seeing today was the boys helping their team mates out by supporting them with positioning and awareness.  Please keep this up.
Getting back to the match,Freddie showed great individual ability beating 2 or 3 players to score his goal.
Towards the last minutes of the game James found himself running through on goal just him and the keeper. There was only going to be one winner and James took his chance. We deserved something from the game and we battled well for the draw.
We Loved the attitude,desire,workrate and commitment to the cause from the 20th minute onwards.  
Collectively, things to work on could be high pressure. Don't wait for our opponents to get the ball under control to make a pass. Force them into a mistake. Be stronger on the ball as well as making that quick pass at times.
I know all the boys didn't get an individual mention,but believe me when I say all of the players had a vital part in this match.  We managed to get a good result even if it wasn't our best display.  Things like these is a sign of champions. Let's start thinking like this as myself and Darren are confident you all can reach great heights if we all apply ourselves correctly.
