RTJFC U14 Colts v Coventrians Phoenix – Sunday 9 September 2018

The Colts started their league campaign against Coventrians, playing the first half against the wind and a team who liked to play long, the defence of Harry, Will, Gabriel and Sam were really tested but with some good tackling restricted Coventrians to just a couple of chances, which stand in keeper Oscar saved well. Poor marking at two corners resulted in two goals, but the Colts were creating chances of their own, Devan and Archie both having shots saved.

The second half saw the Colts press from kick off with Nathan firing narrowly wide. An excellent ball from Will set Thomas free and he beat the keeper from the edge of the area. Danny, Fin and Alfie worked hard down the wings and put some good crosses in, with Nathan and Devan creating chances in the middle, Nathan unlucky to see a strike come off the underside of the bar and back out.

A good team performance and some good build up play on display, as the team gels then the results will surely come.

Star Player: Thomas
