Saint Ronan's School Boys-U13A vs  Dulwich Prep Cranbrook
On: Wednesday, 13 Nov 2019
Venue: at Home

Another local derby to finish off the season and it didn't disappoint. The first 10 minutes was end to end, with opportunities for both sides. We didn't look very confident on the ball and rushed with the ball at our feet. However, what we had worked on during the week finally paid off, with a transfer of the ball around the back and crossed in to meet Arthur on the near post, who delicately passed to Bruno, who scored from close range. With the score 1-0 up at half time, it was critical that the next goal to be ours. Unfortunately, another silly mistake at the back, and a well-struck looped shot 30 yards out, passed Barnaby and meant that we were now on the back foot. We managed to create some more chances of our own, Arthur heading the ball over the post and a shot hitting the upright. In fact, the ball seemed to hit every part of the outside of the goal! In the last 5 minutes, Dulwich seemed hungrier and more motivated to win. With luck not on our side, another long range shot was fired into the top right hand corner. Game set and match!

The team have shown huge progress this year and have much to be proud of. A pleasure to be part of a good group of boys. Well done!
