Semi-final W 2-0 v Hilden Grange

Final D 1-1 v St. Michael's

We arrived at Hilden Grange with only 2 practice sessions behind us but the boys were in good spirits and all displayed excellent football skills, with accurate passing and great movement of the ball. SRS created numerous chances in all their matches and, with only 6 minutes in each half, the boys had to be patient in their build up. This they did and goals were scored by Will M 3, Max Y 2 and Ollie B 1; the other an own goal. These chaps were a constant threat all afternoon. But they were beautifully set up by Ollie H, our midfield dynamo, with great support from Kit W and Louis A. In defence, Henry H. and Theo P. were rock solid and their positioning was excellent. Raife W-H, playing in goal, didn't put a foot wrong, making one outstanding save in the semis, when the score was still 0-0, by diving to his left and pushing the ball on to the post to safety. It looked a certain goal. It was a tense final and both sides pressed hard for the winner in extra time but they could not be separated. The trophy was shared, which was the perfect result as everyone went back home happy. I would like to congratulate everyone in the team for displaying excellent football skills, team work and sportsmanship. Well done, lads.
