Boys U10 Football
On a cold grey winters afternoon we made the long trip over to Niton to play in a U10 league match. Niton have a small pitch which is also narrow and so it was never going to be a game of neat passing football. Greenmount started brightly but the pitch restricted goal scoring chances for both teams. However we adapted to the conditions better and had a flurry of chances just before half time but with no success.
In the second half Niton had a brief spell from which they managed to get beyond our defence but a great save by Leo to tip the ball over the bar kept us level. Archie, Will and Monty were solid in defence and dealt with all that Niton could throw our way. We again started to dominate the play and our midfielders Isaac, Ethan and Seth were winning tackles and looking to play forwards and set up attacks. Seth had a great shot which rebounded back off the upright and up front Tyler and Regan kept the Niton defence busy but we were just unable to grab that decisive goal to snatch the win.
FT Niton 0-0 Greenmount
“A good performance and a good away point to continue our league campaign. Well played boys”
