King’s St Alban’s Sport: Boys Football
This week’s King’s St Alban’s Sport Round-Up features coverage of the boys football matches that took place against King’s Hawford. All of the boys who took part in competitive fixtures this week showed exemplary sportsmanship and were a credit to King’s St Alban’s Sport.
U8 v King’s Hawford
The U8 boys had their first taste of competitive football against King’s Hawford on a very wet and windy Tuesday afternoon. All of the boys seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves and were playing with smiles on their faces despite the horrendous conditions. Peter U never stopped running for the entirety of the match, his desire to get back to stop the Hawford attack was impressive. He then showed immense skill with the ball to go past the opposition at ease and knew the right time to make the pass. Barnaby J made some fantastic saves to keep Hawford from scoring on a number of occasions. Ralph D was our captain for the day and showed some great leadership attributes. The boys showed great work rate and skill from the first whistle. Well done U8s!
U9A v King’s Hawford
A tough fixture against King’s Hawford awaited us. We started off quite shaky and found ourselves two goals down in quick concession. However, we were looking to play football. Emphasis was on how we play and how we work off the ball. Every single one of them worked extremely hard to win the ball back and at times pressed really well in groups. We had a few chances throughout the game but unfortunately fell short. Many positives can be taken from the game and into the next. Well done boys.
U9B v King’s Hawford
Excitement was amongst our U9 B’s as for the majority it was their first ever football fixture! We tried to capitalise through the width in this game and both Lex and Sebastian C did this excellently. Almost hugging the touch line Lex found himself in bags of space, he managed to weave in and out of two players and slot the ball home through the keepers legs. Excellent goal!! Each and every one of the boys defended resiliently. Because of this Hawford found it hard to move the ball into space. Extremely proud of the boys and they should feel confident going into their next fixture.
