- U11s Tornadoes V Urmston Town Vipers
Saturday 19th Sept 2015, Beech Farm, KO 10am.
In a difficult opening league match, at home, the U11s Tornadoes played host to Urmston Town Vipers. In a tense and tight first half, despite playing up hill, the Tornadoes managed to compete well. Showing good spirit, in spells, the Tornadoes battled bravely with Brandon Wabayi and Ronan Courtney both working well together to create a number of chances. Unfortunately after a sustained period of pressure the Tornadoes ran out of steam, losing all heart and team shape. The disappointment among the players was tangible but they can take encouragement from several periods of play where they were the better team. Special mentions go to Ronan Courtney, who was inspirational at times, Harrison Birkett and William Whipday for good performances. But the stand out Man of the Match award went to Joe Mountcastle, who showed tremendous improvement in his technical skill, effort and work rate.
