Football Report (5th January 2013)

We had 2 matches today, the first of the 2nd half of the season.  Jamie’s match was cancelled as the pitch was waterlogged.  I took Leo to his match and daddy took Arch to his.

It was a good match, and SW started very well, but at half time were 1-0 down.  The first 1 minutes of the second half were the weakest point for the SW U11s and sadly 2 more goals were conceded.  They pushed and pushed for the rest of the 2nd half and in the final minute were able to cross a ball in that landed neatly at Leo’s feet….just inside the goal!  So although he didn’t actually score, his feet were there just in case.  So with a final score of 3-1, Leo was awarded “Man of the Match”.  Well done, Leo.

Meanwhile, at the same time in Bracknell, the SW U8s were also playing.  As I wasn’t able to watch, I was reliant on either an update via txt from daddy or a final score when we saw each other again.  At 11.53, imagine my delight when I got a text telling me that Archie had scored!  His first ever goal in a match…then a few minutes later his second!  Yay Archie!!!  The final score for SW U8s was 10-2!  Archie was awarded the “Pass Master” trophy by his coach, who is delighted with how he did.  Sadly I don’t have a photo of Arch with his trophy right now as he has gone to daddy’s house, but I will try to post one soon.

All in all, I am an extremely proud Mummy, and looking forward to the rest of the season.

PS Whilst waiting for Leo’s match to start, Jack and I were watching one of the goalies on another team warming up with his coach. When a ball came Jack’s way, he passed it back to the coach, who offered to sign him up 🙂

  1. “his feet were there just in case!” LOVE THAT! 🙂 WE also like the “accidental” goals- where it bounces off someone and goes in…Digging that uniform. Ours are very lacking for youth AYSO.
