The Under 10's were undefeated at the Havant Festival winning five games and drawing two games. They scored 14 goals and conceded none. This was a spectacular performance by all the children and a great team effort with fun for all, both on and off the pitch. There was great tackling and passing from the back by Fraser and Josh. No one got past Fraser, and defence quickly became attack, with width provided by Alex and Emily Soper. In midfield Ben and Emily Thorpe provided skill, determination and selfless passing. Jacob quickly fitted into the team, and showed how to move forward quickly and also how to pass to all his team mates. Upfront James Hockley showed strong attacking dribbling, as well as an ability to bring other players into the game as they came forward in support. James Cracknell while not having to make too many saves was huge in goal, and made some fine clearances, and by the last game was playing in defence as he had rarely been tested in previous games. The goals were shared across a number of players, but Emily Thorpe got 3 and James Hockley managed to get 5 during the tournament. A fun morning in bright sunshine. Well done to Alex, James C and Jacob for their debuts.
The parents ate all the doughnuts, and here is to a great season, they deserve it.
