The U10 Clarets travelled to Stratford Town FC Knights on Sunday to play in the Autumn trophy pool B- it was early, wet & windy!
After a tough start to the match leaving them trailing 2-1 (with a goal from Noah G) and an injury forcing them down to 6 players, at this point they could have completely given up, but they showed determination and battled on, after a short while great sportsmanship was shown by Stratford Town FC knights who also reduced their team to 6 and the Clarets fought back (with a hat trick from Marley) and at full time the score was a 4-4 draw. This meant one thing…… penalties!
Thanks to Charlie and his outstanding goalkeeping skills and the boys all taking brilliant penalties the Clarets came out on top.
The guidance and encourgement given by their coach Marcus helps them get better week by week. Speedy recovery wishes to Yiorgos who picked up a nasty knock & a massive ‘Well Done’ to Archie, Charlie, Marley, Noah G, Tommy, Robert & Yiorgos.
