- FLIXTON JUNIOR U13 HAWKS V U13 TORNADOES
Saturday 4th November, Wellacre Academy, 10am KO, League.
Boasting a proper regulation sized pitch and goals for the u13's age group, I was hoping that we'd give Flixton as good a game, as we did last season!
However, we were hampered by the fact that we only had 10 available players, whilst the opposition played with 11 and used their 4 subs in rotation.
Therefore, it was always going to be an uphill task for the lads. Still though, they battled on, kept going and didn't let their heads drop. Despite it being a struggle, especially with fitness later in the game, the boys motored on and Ricky and I are very proud of them.
Once again, we never got the rub of the green, or the referees decisions. At half time I thought it should have been 2-2, yet we went in 3-1 down.
For me and Ricky some of the boys' play was exceptional in phases and I thought we were terribly unlucky not to score more. Jamie, Max and Joe Hope were very unfortunate not to find the net.
So, I think we can console ourselves with the fact that we created chances and managed, courtesy of Alan, to convert two of them.
However, as I said in my post match team talk, it would be unfair to single out an individual and therefore the whole team were given the MOTM award.
Well done boys! Keep going, keep working hard and hopefully we'll have some better days ahead of us.
Final score: Flixton 7 - 2 Tornadoes
