U10 Football – Boys
On Thursday 2nd November our U10 (Yr 5) boys team played their first game of the season v The Bay. Greenmount started brightly and played some flowing football creating lots of very good chances to score but unfortunately we were not as clinical in front of goal as we would have hoped and these chances went begging. However a great move from the back and a surging run and pin point cross from Jack Ronan found James Davis in a great position to steer the ball home and put us 1-0 up. HT Greenmount 1-0 The Bay.
In the second half our opponents came out fighting and started to play producing some good passing moves. However the Greenmount defence stood strong with Jaden Pocock looking very assured at the back. Eventually this pressure paid off and The Bay scored twice to take a 1-2 lead. However the boys showed fantastic resilience. Kanye Adams and Harry Portsmouth battled hard in midfield to win the ball back and a clever turn and pass by Jack Ronan provided Finnley Perkis the opportunity to level the scores. FT Greenmount 2-2 The Bay.
” A fantastic start to the year 5 league campaign with some excellent passing moves, strong defending and 2 well taken goals. All in all a great team performance against a good Bay team. If we had converted the earlier chances it could have been a comfortable win. We now have something to work on for our remaining fixtures.”
