A windy day in Gravesend saw the mighty U10 Lions take on a very strong and exciting Ebbsfleet Utd team, having played these last year we knew it was going to be a tough game.
We started the game kicking uphill and against the wind, to be fair the conditions didn’t affect the game to much with the boys looking good in small patches but making a lot of mistakes, Ebbsfleet are to good a team to not take advantage of our poor play.
If it wasn’t for our keeper we would have found ourselves 4 down but some exceptional saves but before half time we found ourselves 1 – 0 down due to more sloppy play.
Pro Kickers Academy would like to offer your child/team the opportunity to take part in a October Soccer Camp at Long Lane JFC, the Football Camp will run for a period of 3 days, the dates for the camp are 27th – 28th – 29th October 2014. The Football Camp will start at 10am and finish at 3pm (can drop children off as early as 8.45). The Football Camp will cost £40 for the 3 days, day rates available.
After a week off, it was good to get back to doing what we do best and that was playing football on a Sunday.
After a warm-up that I felt didn't go so great I said to the boys during the team talk that I felt we didn't prepare well enough and this was to show with Footscray Black scoring two quick long range goals to go 2-0 up in the first ten minutes. After a change in formation to 4-5-1 we started to create a few chances and pulled one back after Marcus Collins-Rowe put a lovely ball over the top for Jesse to run on to which he finished delightfully. We then equalised with Jesse scoring again with a goal that was similar to his first.
Jayden Bernard was a massive outlet for us with his pace and trickery causing untold problems for footscrays left back. This was highlighted when he picked the ball up and drive at the left back going past him with ease and then finishing low in to the corner. 3-2 up. Half time.
