Rugby Town JFC U10 Eagles
This Year the Eagles find themselves in league Division 11.
We will be facing Harbrough Raiders again, who essentially mapped out our season last year with our first and last games. First game saw us go down badly, second game they just won, and won the league title doing so.
Otherwise some new teams, and one long journey to Oakham await us. With a slightly rejigged team from last year this should allow other players to shine.
Well its November and we have STILL only had ONE league game!!!
Cancelled twice by both Oadby Owls and Glen villa, and once by medbounre.
Ok so we've had to cancel 2 ourselves (against market harbourogh and Lutterworth) but still.....
lads seem to enjoying themsdelves though, and definate improvements are being seen. we hope for LOADS of games in November....fingers crossed....
3 games left and we should find ourselves 3rd in the league.
2 very close calls between the top two 2 teams, and one bad performance meant we lost 3 games so far this season.
2 of those though we right down to the wire....
March 21st 2010
And so the Season ends....The year had started badly with a 13-2 drubbing in the torrential rain at Long Buckby, and the frustrating slow start of the season due to cancellations.
Finally we built up a head of steam, and in a purple patch in October/November we gained revenge over Long Buckby, but lost 2 nail biters to Royce Rangers and Market Harbrough.
But come the middle of December the team seemed to fall apart a bit. A dreadful performance against Market Harborough was followed up by an even worse first half against bottom team Oadby Owls that saw us 2-0 down, dead and buried, our season in tatters.
But the boys dug deep, showed character and resolve and in the end won that game 4-2 and continued to win every game after, all in style and with aplomb.
By the end of the season (and undefeated in 2010) we came second in the League, a great achievement.
Great season boys!!
You should all be proud, all us parents and coaches are!
