Saturday 16 th November saw Sheen Lions take our U8 groups to play against QPR U8s in a series of matches. The facilities were excellent with the boys warming up and playing on a 4G rubber crumb playing surface which is the nearest thing to playing on a perfect grass surface.
After a quick warm up and instructions from Scott and Geoff both teams proceeded to play against their respective sides. After a quiet start, probably due to the nature of the occasion, the boys really opened up and started to play with a confidence and freedom which we have been accustomed to witnessing at training. There was a multitude of passing patterns, coupled with superb attacking intent and some excellent finishing from a number of different players. On the flip side there was some wonderful defending both individually and collectively which showed a willingness to fight for the Sheen Lions cause!!!
All in all it was an excellent day which the boys thoroughly enjoyed and one they will probably remember for the rest of the footballing careers. It has been such a pleasure to be at the start of their journey and hopefully there will be many more days like this enabling them to develop and have loads of fun at the same time.
See you all at training.
Mr Trevor Hodge
Many thanks to QPR for arranging and hosting the matches. A few weeks ago our boys provided a guard of honour at a QPR first team fixture and this week many of our coaches attended a partnership evening at QPR to see and hear about the QPR academy.
Thanks to all the parents that sent in photos, we are always pleased to get these for the website.
