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.

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!
