U11 Boys Football
Last week our U11 boys football team was in action playing Newport in the league.
U11 Boys v Newport.
A frustrating game which saw Greenmount have most of the possession but without turning this into goals. A battling performance all round with every player trying hard to secure a win. We put together some promising moves linking well to create shooting opportunities and had a number of shots on goal.
Unfortunately with all of our players pushing forward at a corner we left ourselves open at the back. Newport cleared the ball and broke on the counter attack and although our defenders recovered well to thwart the run the ball bobbled out of a tackle to a Newport player who scuffed a shot past Leo in goal.
Greenmount continued to attack but were unable to find the equalising goal. FT 1-0.
” A battling performance from all of our players, who never gave up. I thought that we were the better team on the day but football can be a cruel game and sometimes the better team does not always win. I can see the development in the players which is great! Well done lads, now we need to take our battling spirit onto the next game v St Thomas”.
