U9A v Pinewood

The As had a tough game, against a strong Pinewood side. Despite working hard and battling for the ball, the possession was squandered to easily. An area to work on is man-to-man marking and keeping possession of the ball. The energy levels were good; however, we need to find greater stamina to help defend our goal.

U10A v Pinewood
Player of the Match: Felix Williams. Result lost 6-3.
Hatherop were excellent going forward and scored 3 very good goals! 2 scored by Felix and the other by Piran. We matched our opponents both physically and skilfully, however, as soon as possession was lost, the team did not react quick enough to mark the runners coming through. For the first game of the season there were plenty of positives to take away and improve upon.
