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 🙂
