Rugby Town U10 Puma’s sponsored by Ideal Factory welcomed Rugby Town Boys for what was a hotly anticipated fixture.
The Pumas playing with a weakened squad started a bit slowly, competed well but gave The Boys too much time on the ball, resulting in deflected strikes beating Jamie in goal. The Pumas discovered their passing game, resulting in a number of one on one’s with The Boys’ keeper, but Coops (The Wall) could not be beaten! The remainder of the first half saw both sides competing for the ball, with excellent intricate passing.
The second half saw The Boys start strongly, pressing The Puma’s and if they weren’t able to win a tackle The Boys had support to maintain the pressure. This gave the Puma’s very little time on the ball, and resulted in The Puma’s making forced passes, which ended up giving The Boys the ball. The pressure told and The Boys were able to relax after beating The Puma’s keeper. As always this match produces excellent football of the highest quality.
