UNITED TEAM MATCH
Stoneygate United 0 – 4 Wellingborough A
The Year 4 United team consisting of Kian D, Tom M, Will McE, George B, Daniel R and Max W (Captain) played Wellingborough year 4 A team in a 6 a side game at home in a return fixture.
Having lost the previous fixture 2-9 the team were worried about a repeat. Pre-empted changes were made to the side with Kian D now playing in goal and Daniel R being given the attacking role. Despite this it looked like another high score would prevail and the team went in at half time trailing 0-4.
At half time they were told to put in more effort especially when getting back into defence. Lead by a ‘Man of the Match’ performance by Will McE, Stoneygate stopped many attacks and indeed could have score twice on the break. Full Time 0 – 4
Man of the match went to Will McE for his tireless running and the champagne moment went to Kian D for an outstanding save in the second half from a powerful shot.
CITY TEAM MATCH
Stoneygate City 2 – 3 Wellingborough B
Scorers: Will M – 2
The Year 4 City team consisting of Alex M, Declan M, Will M, Max H, Ed B, George C and James B (Captain) played Wellingborough B at the same time as the A team’s match. This game was an even better effort from the boys as they lost the first fixture 0-5 and this time narrowly lost 2-3
Will M scored both goals and rightly took the man of the match award. Full Time 2 – 3
To see both teams improve in this manner was very exciting and positive for the future. Thanks to those who came to support.
