The Colts B team played away to Grace Dieu B team last Wednesday 19th March 2014 in an 8 a side fixture on a dry and windy day with the pitch fairly hard and bouncy..
The team consisted of Tom B in goal, Will R, Jack U, Hugo F, Jamie B, Henry V, Mathew W and Ed B. This team reflected the fact a number of players were unavailable.
After an encouraging start with slick interplay between Mathew and Hugo Stoneygate looked to have the footballing edge over their opponents. They did not realise though Grace Dieu always play with tremendous fight and spirit and soon found themselves in a tense struggle. Both teams however lacked a cutting edge and rarely were the goals threatened. The match ending as it begun 0 – 0.
Man of the match awards went to 3 players this time, Jack U for his control whilst in defence, Hugo F for his ability to get forward from a defending position and Mathew W for his outstanding ability on the ball. The boys agreed to share the award for 2 days each! There was very little in the way of champagne moments and thus this award, probably for the first time< was not given.
Apart from the very first match when the team lost to Maidwell despite looking the better footballing side the B team has been undefeated since. In nearly all of their games so far they have looked like the best team yet have not turned their superiority into goals. Once they start to find the net consistently then they will have even more success.
Thanks once again to those parents who came to support.
