Coventry Sporting U7s Madrid 3 v 4 Rugby Town Juniors U7s Lions
Played Saturday 7 th October 2017
Lions, class of 2017/18, faced a severe examination in a pulsating game with Madrid. Harry Marson brought off a great save early in the game before Lions won a free kick just outside Madrid’s box.
George Newbold bent a wonderful ball around the wall to put Lions one up.
Lions increased their lead when Luke Chow flew down the right wing, cut inside and let fly with a screamer. Whilst Madrid came back to equalise the scores, Charlie Whittle, freed momentarily from defensive duties and the silky skilled Aidan Lynch restored Lions two goal advantage.
Bobby Linnecor was causing their defence problems; Ollie Broad was a powerhouse in midfield; Elijah Robinson hit the post with a trademark long shot and although Madrid did get a goal back Lions ran out worthy winners.
Ian (Headmaster) Lynch’s report – A* to all players for sportsmanship, endeavour and skill.
