Well done to the boys football team who put in a spirited performance against Fairlands in a friendly fixture. The game was arranged as a chance to give some players game time as a reward for their hard work and commitment to training this year. The game was played in great spirit with Fairlands emerging as winners. All the boys played very well but Fairlands just proved to be a bit more clinical in front of goal. Coden had a good first game for the school and was a commanding presence at the back. Lewis had a strong game as part of a 3 man midfield and covered every blade of grass. Hugh Sexey started very brightly and looked to move the ball around. Unfortunately the conditions didn't lend themselves to this patient approach. Sam had a fine game in midfield and made some very clever touches and runs behind the defence. Captain George and vice Captain Riley were inspirational throughout and really helped the players along. It was great for boys like Dylan, Frank and Caleb to get an extended run in the team and was well deserved after all their hard work. Hugh Sexey's first goal came after a quick throw by Jamie in goal. Caleb then realised Will who turned the right back and scuttled down the left touchline. His drilled cross was meet by his dear friend Kayden at the back post for a fine team goal. Hugh Sexey scored again when Lewis played a neat decoy pass to Sam who burst into the box. He shaped to blast the ball but with the keeper anticipating such a shot he craftily placed it into the bottom corner.
It was very pleasing to see the boys have the chance to represent the school and I hope the all enjoyed the experience. Many thanks to Fairlands for a fine game.
