RTJFC U10 Pumas vs Southam United. Autumn Cup – Sunday 7 October 2018

Rugby Town U10 Puma’s sponsored by Ideal Factory visited Southam United for our next match in the Autumn Cup.

After a last minute goalkeeper substitute, due to illness Jamie started between the posts, The Puma’s started slowly and eventually their passing game started to flow, building their play out from the back and enabling the whole team to push up the pitch. The Puma’s gave Southam little time on the ball, which enabled The Puma’s to receive the ball in more attacking parts of the pitch. There were great attacking chances created down both wings, and some neat inter-play between defence to midfield to forwards, creating great goal scoring opportunities and some speculative long-range shots!

As the match progressed The Puma’s were camped in The Southam half, allowing them the odd breakaway chance, a couple of which they converted. The second half saw another goalkeeper change with hat trick hero Alex putting the gloves on for the remainder of the game. As the second half progressed The Puma’s lost their shape as the defence pushed higher, but it was great to see a number of different players getting on the scoresheet, including Lowan, Sam and a hat trick of Charlie’s / Charley’s!
