- U7 WINTON WANDERERS FOXES V U7 TORNADOES
Saturday 22nd April, Cranbrook Road, KO 11am, League.
A lovely, warm sunny day saw the Tornadoes put in a fine display against an extremely resolute defence.
Boasting a decent keeper and a brilliant centre back, Winton largely kept the Tornadoes at bay. However, some great persistence and dogged determination from the boys saw them register goals in both halves.
In the first half, Flinn deputised in nets and put in a great performance to secure a first half clean sheet. At the other end, the Tornadoes had the bulk of possession and chances created. However, excellent defending from the Winton rearguard, particularly their number 7, saw the Tornadoes with only one goal to show for their efforts. But what a goal it was, a sumptuous free kick from Alfie!
In the second period, Flinn played outfield with Jack taking up residence in the goal. Again the Tornadoes met stiff resistance, but some excellent play from Flinn, saw him register a goal, as well as providing a great assist for Alfie to score with a volley finish!
Stewart also registered on the score sheet when he notched the Tornadoes' fourth after an assist from Dylan.
All in all, this was a good, cohesive showing from the Tornadoes who, despite some brilliant resistance, grabbed a good victory and kept a clean sheet.
Jack and Flinn were extremely alert, with both keeping a clean sheet. George was masterful at the back. Stewart deputised well in defence, when needed, and worked very hard in midfield. Logan was like a terrier all game and didn't allow Winton the chance to build any attacks. Alfie, although looking slightly sluggish, still managed to net a brace with two fabulous finishes. Dylan, also looked a bit sluggish too, but he kept plugging away and he played a great ball for Stewart to capitalise on.
The MOTM award though had to go to Flinn who was excellent all game and really made a difference, when he played outfield in the second period.
