Christchurch v Burton
Match Result: 0 – 3
TEAM: Connor R, Jack G, Taryn M, Charlie F, Mikey F, Harry H, Luis R, Lewis C, Freddie M, Adam L
SUBS: Jack, Freddie, Taryn
Adam made his debut for Christchurch Youth and played very well in his first match. Christchurch came out quite positive and made some good surges forward, whilst Burton were trying to achieve the same for their team, but Christchurch were able to keep more of the ball possession for most of the 1st half.
Burton had a shot on goal, 8 minutes into the game but Connor made a great save and knocked it wide of the goal mouth. Burton then attacked once more but were unlucky with their finishing, and after a goal mouth scramble Christchurch saved the ball from going in once again.
Jack was then subbed with Charlie and Burton then surged forward and scored the opening goal of the match making the scoreline 0-1.
There was some good passing from Christchurch today and Taryn and Lewis and Luis were excellent when playing in defence together. Christchurch then continued to battle on and great teamwork from Jack, Charlie, Mikey upfront. Jack was then subbed for Freddie and the whistle was blown for blown for half-time.
Burton came out on the attack and really stretched Christchurch's defence and even though Taryn and Adam and Freddie battled on valiantly Burton were able to push themselves through and the ball was chipped in over Connor's head, making the score 0-2. Christchurch then won a free kick, which was taken by Lewis with a blinding kick but unfortunately Burton's goalie saved the ball. Throughout the 2nd half Christchurch battled on regardless and the whole team tried really hard to even up the scoreline, but unfortunately this did not happen and Burton were lucky with another goal to make the end score 0-3.
Well done boys you all played really well and hopefully your hard work may pay off next week.
