Boys B v Bernards Heath
The B team hosted Bernards Heath on Monday in a friendly match. This game was the debut of Year 4 Archie in goal. The game was divided into thirds and as both teams had 8 players, it was decided that it should be an 8-a-side festival of football for all involved. The first 2 thirds were very tight. Both keepers made good saves and it was 0-0 going into the last 10 minutes. Bernards Heath seemed to find more energy from somewhere and took control of the match with three quick goals. Bowmansgreen replied with a goal that was the best of the game as Dylan smashed the ball into the top corner from 20 yards. A thoroughly entertaining match with a superb debut from Archie. Final score – Bowmansgreen 1-3 Bernards Heath.
Squad – Archie, Szymon, Zeph, Evan, Dylan, Tiago, Adam, Zak.
Bowmansgreen v Fleetville
The boys had a tough visit to Fleetville. The Bowmansgreen side were made up of a mixture of year 5 and 6 pupils. Captain for the day was Albie who also stepped up to play in goal. The final score was 3-0 to Fleetville but an improvement in play during the 2nd half gives encouragement for future games. 2 of the goals were scored by one of the tallest year 6 lads I have ever seen! All in all, a defeat but some good performances, especially from Daniel and George.
Squad – Albie, Luke, Seyawash, Mirko, George, Daniel, Elijah.
