North Wilts League U14 Division 1



U14 Cup Malmesbury Tornadoes 0 CCCFC White 12 Print

Its hard to take too much pleasure in a game so one sided. It was only 4-0 at half time and our freinds from malmesbury as always played decent football during that time. At the point we went 8-0 up our oppoments were asked if they wanted to carry on - they said yes. We moved our players around to try and keep the score down but....

Guess it does show two things -

1 - We are better than we were last year

2 - We made the right decision in going up a league to seek harder games that would stretch us. We may concede a few heavy defeats ourselves this year but we will learn and improve.

Scorers - Louie 3, Jayden 3, Nathan 2, Cam 2, Alex and Archie

MOM - If you score a hat trick from wing back youd be gutted if you werent mom wouldnt you - Jayden

The lads lined up with local bragging rights at stake - with so many of the lads being schoolmates, that was always going to be the case. The guys chose exactly the right moment to raise their game and snapped into the task with relish.

An energetic, combative midfield of JoeP, JJ, Alex, Mad Max and Archie revelled in a slight change in formation to grab control of the game and dominate their opponents. Zac was introduced into this midfield frequently and had his most impressive game so far as well.

I wont pretend that we played better football than our friends from Calne, but they were merely left with scraps of posession to create chances while we kept the presure on and looked to release Cam and Louie whenever we could. One incisive long PASS from Archie released the fleet footed Cameron and we all know if he gets behind you, you aint catching him! He was able to finish this time to give his side a well deserved lead. Our parents were bristling with pride and they had every right to.

Then - in a crucial 5 mins just before half time we lost our skipper to a late challenge and we unfortunately also gave away a soft goal from a long range free kick literally on the whistle - both issues proved to be important to the course of the game.

Having said that - after half time the lads re-established their vice like grip on the game - Max, JoeN, JoeG, Jacob and Nathan were superb at the back in shifts. Alex came off the treatment table breifly to rifle a RIGHT FOOTED volleyed goal  (!) and restablish the lead, before limping off again. At this stage (again) it was deserved, but from that point on Calne got more posession and moved nearer our goal. The equaliser when it came was a cracking finish from the left back into the top corner - one of those goals that no-one is at fault for.

Our chaps were getting tired and the work rate dropped slightly, another unfortunate injury robbed us of Cam and one of our release ball options. On two seperate occasions towards the end of the game, we were just too slow in clearing a ball from our box and Calne grabbed the lead back- Shame.

Whilst we could be called a little naive in allowing our opponents back into a game we had by the scruff of the neck - you have to give them some credit, they are a fine side. I have to say though there was only one side smiling at the end. Im pretty sure we were all very proud of ourselves, our supporters and our team mates - and thats one of the major reasons we are here isnt it?

Man of the match - Nathan and the two wing backs were very close, I have to give it to Archie though for dominating one of the best midfields in the league. Well played everyone.

Apologies for the late report

This was a game we can learn a lot from. As our two main objectives this year are

1) to try and stay up

2) to learn and improve

thats a good thing! In synopsis - we played as much good football as our opponents. We created 10 chances, they created 10. They scored 5, we scored 0!

They were more clinical and lasted in the high intensity better

Chipp Tn 7 CCCFC White 3

It was unfortunate we had to play on the smallest legal size of pitch possible - although the turf was impeccable. It was also really unforunate to have 3 penalties awarded against us and be penalised on a regular basis when there was any physical contact.

Having said all that - we were not unfortunate to lose. Chipp deserved their win. We were even given a 'contentious' penalty as well! Our players who have beeen deservedly riding a tide of success for a little while now, looked a little nervous. They ended the game much better than the way they started it though and that should give them encouragement to move on to the next game. We came into this to learn and we are going to do exactly that, and hopefully grab a few good results on the way.

We have proved we are a good side - we just need to remember that and stay confident

Onwards and upwards

The man of the match - Cannot split Archie and JJ. Scorers Arch 2 Louie 1
