COLTS XI - 17/11/2019 VS SAFFRON WALDEN U14 (H)
TEAM: Colts XI
FIXTURE: Colts XI VS 17/11/2019
HEADLINE: Supportive win
LEAGUE: Cup Tournament
RESULT: Win 8-0
Just a quick note today on the performance this afternoon which at 8-0 we have to celebrate coming as it did through teamwork, sheer graft and good decision making.
The scorers had plenty of opportunities to finish and with composure made it, mostly, look easy. Given the supply and creativity of the team we had chances aplenty and, mostly, passed well to stick or thoughtfully into space. Our resilient defence put in a shift showing great courage when the dominance of our midfield area faltered, if it ever did. And finally, well, a clean sheet is always to be treasured.
Well done particularly to the younger players who lifted their games and proved their worth in this team by demonstrating their potential. To see them play so well, looking like it was their inalienable right to play on this pitch and in this team was the highest accolade we could ask for and I hope we squared our objectives away as coaches in this regard.
The key to unlocking further success in this tournament will come in the next 6 weeks by continuing to play and enjoy the sort of hockey that we played today. Let’s not take anything for granted, back to the coal face on Tuesday!
