U9A v Gresham’s U9A  Score: 1-2

LPS@TH started strongly and passed the ball well. However, it was Gresham’s who first broke the deadlock by opening the scoring. Excellent defending by Finley W and Raffy P helped to relieve the pressure at the back, whilst Reuben B worked hard in the middle of the pitch to link up well with the forwards. Keeper Oliver W made some strong saves and cleared the ball well, and wingers Thomas H and Theo C led some good attacks. A strong run by Reuben resulted in a good cross across the D for the waiting Brett W to smack the ball in to draw the teams level. Despite working hard, Gresham’s managed to score another and finished the match as victors.

Team: Oliver W, Reuben B, Thomas H, Theo C, Brett W, Finley W, Raffy P
