Lydney 6 – 1 Ross

Despite today’s result (6-1) the U13’s played well today. From the goalie right through the team they all did really well. With players in their first ever match and no subs against a full strength Lydney with half dozen rolling subs, Ross took the lead through pressuring Lydneys defence and stealing the ball and putting a string of quick passes together for Dewi to score. Lydney got the equaliser before HT. Ross appeared shattered at the break. Second half saw few attacks from Ross but some great resilient defending. Lydney gave a player to Ross which was a benefit but just not enough to keep the score line down. Ross gave everything today and played well as a team. Just ran out of steam towards the end. Thanks to Pete for coaching today. I expect the kids can’t wait till the next match. As a supporting parent I really enjoyed watching them today.
