………. but unfortunately we froze in many of the games.
A very untypical Sunday with 7 defeats in 14 games and just the 4 victories. 3 were drawn but these included a couple of very encouraging results.
Matt’s Under 16 Pride are becoming the draw specialists with their sixth draw of the season in 12 games but this time against a very strong Sandgate side. The U15s lost two tough games with Dean and Sam’s Pride losing 5-2 to table topping Farnborough and Michael and Mark’s U15 Lions losing a tight game 2-1 to Guilford City. They will face Guilford again in a few weeks in the Quarter Final of the Surrey County Cup. Terry’s Under 13’s showed there is very little difference between mid table and top of the league with a good 3-3 draw against top of the table Kew Association, whilst Matthew and Russell’s U13 Pride found Surrey Predators a bit too strong going down 4-0.
Ricks Under 14 Pride maintained their impressive winning streak with a 4-1 victory over Barnes Eagles to keep in contention for a place in the top two of their league. The Under 12’s also maintained their good form. Bernie’s U13P may feel a bit disappointed with a 3-3 draw at Old Isleworth Whites but Mel’s U12 Lions go marching on in the Championship with a great 2-0 win over Esher. Old Isleworth in fact proved to our bogey team on the day as their U11 beat David’s table topping U11 Pride side 1-0 and also their Under 10’s beat Martin and Michael’s high flying Under 10 Lions 4-0 in the Premier League. David’s Under 10 Pride also lost this time to Hampton.
Nidal and Richard’s Under 9 Lions had one of the best results of the day a good 2-0 win over Staines to consolidate their position in second place in the league but unfortunately Nick and Gavin’s U9 Pride found Esher a little bit too strong going down 3-0.
TEAM OF THE DAY undoubtably this week were John’s Under 18’s who beat Claygate 1-0 at Palewell to reach the Quarter Final of the U18 Surrey County Cup. Claygate are in a division higher with boys pretty much all under 18 versus Johns U17 squad. The U18s will now play Premier League table topping Oxshott in the Quarter Final. WELL DONE to John, Freddy their coach and the boys.
