20th September – Colts C vs St Pirans
On Wednesday, the U11C team played in a triangular match against St Neot’s and St Piran’s Prep Schools, hosted by the latter.
Our first match was against St Piran’s and we were unlucky to lose this 2-1. We dominated the first half and had several shots on goal, Zach breaking the deadlock before half-time.
The second half saw St Piran’s come back at us and after they scored their first, an unfortunate own-goal left them to take the spoils.
Next, we played against a very strong St Neot’s side. They were the better team but the boys from St Edward’s never gave up. The final score was 4-0, but it could have been more were it not for our tenacious attitude and the goalkeeping skills of Yadveer. Without doubt, he was our Man of the Match.
Well done to all the boys, I was very proud to coach you.
20th September – Colts A vs Dolphin tournament
The colts A went over to Dolphin to compete in the U11 Football tournament. They started very well beating Beechwood school 1-0. Goal scored by James. In the second game they played St Marys. The boys created a lot of chances but just couldn’t put the ball into the back of the net drawing the game 0-0. Going into the 3rd game they had to get a win against a strong St George’s side. Again we dominated the play and created many chances. Windsor managed to just pip us to the win. 1-0. The boys can be very proud of their performance and showed how good they can be.
20th September – Colts B vs St Piran’s and St Neot’s
The boys were excited to be playing not one, but two schools in this little triangular. Their attitude was excellent and their old teacher Mr Fearn said ‘they gave a really good account of themselves’. St Piran’s were shocked when Joshua managed to equalise in the second half to draw the game 1-1. We almost kept St Neot’s out as well, except from a very unfortunate goal score by the ball bouncing off the back of a St Neot’s player. A great start to the season boys I was proud of your attitude.
22nd September- U8B vs Brockhurst
The U8B team played football against home side, Brockhurst, in glorious sunshine.
After a sleepy start, the boys acquitted themselves well. The first half finished 2-1 to Brockhurst, with Daniel scoring his second goal in two matches just before the whistle to bring us back in contention.
Unfortunately, we conceded a few goals early in the second half which left Brockhurst the winners but many of the boys showed great potential; Jordan made some brilliant but sporadic runs and Nathan saved some excellent shots in goal.
Mihai was tenacious in midfield but Man of the Match has to go to Daniel.
Well done boys.
22nd September – U9A vs Brockhurst
The U9A team had a very successful afternoon of football winning 3-0 vs Brockhurst. The boys worked extremely hard throughout the game and played the best football so far this term.
Issac stepped up and played with great determination but man of the match went to Izak who scored a hat-trick.
22nd September – U8A vs Brockhurst
The boys were excited to be back at the familiar setting of Brockhurst where they played the mini tournament last week. They were full of enthusiasm and confidence and had made huge progress since our first match against Paplewick. The boys got off to a great start by taking an early lead but the action was end to end and Brockhurst soon equalised. At half time the school was 2-1 to St Edward’s, thanks to goals from Om and Felix, but both teams fought and found themselves at 3-3 with seconds to go. After a huge last minute run from Jabari, Om managed to score to make it 4-3 and claim our first victory of the season.
22nd September – U9B vs Brockhurst
The St Edward’s U9B team played a fantastic game of football against a spirited Brockhurst team. Both teams were evenly matched and demonstrated some good attacking football. The St Edward’s boys had been working hard in training on their passing and tackling and their efforts really paid off in the match. Man of the Match, Mohamed, was a constant threat going forward and nearly scored on several occasions. Matthew and Musa were tenacious in defence, putting in some well-timed tackles and hefty clearances. Unfortunately the visiting team scored the only goal of the match, against the run of play, but this match has boosted the boys’ confidence ahead of this week’s tournament.
