Chester Under 7s Blues reacted well to the Friday evening training being cancelled, with early battling displays from Jack Kelly, and Captain Lincoln Borthwick, who lead from the front all day.
The usual lethargic opening 10minutes kept it goal-less until Adam Abdullah combined with Lincoln Borthwick with some good passing to set up an opportunistic chance for Ben Sharp who pounced on the rebound and slid it into the Net.. 1-0 happy days!
Freddie Barron, with some great early saves showing great bravery and James Sharp, always covering the last man and strong in the tackle, played together as a tight defensive unit, giving confidence to the rest of the team to forage on looking for the next goal.
Kai Duffy made several good runs into the opposition’s half with only the final touch denying us more goals.
Half time and fresh legs, we started brightly and again with great positional play and vision Jack Kelly pushed forward to create space for the midfield to run into, and it wasn’t long before Ben Sharp benefitted as he pushed through with a very determined run out of midfield to smash home his second goal of the game..
Harry Holmes was like a Duracell Bunny on the pitch, even with the freezing conditions it never dampened his mood or his commitment to the challenge, clearing the ball from dangerous positions numerous times, Defend from the front’ we always say and this is what we did.
Jinkin’ Lincoln Borthwick then sealed the victory with an individual run from the midfield, carving his way through the defence and slotting home with his trade-mark type goal and followed with a celebration that was worthy of strikers at any level
Good defensive corner drills ensured a clean sheet and 3-0.
Freddie Barron who was a spectator for most of the second half did well keeping his concentration and composure.
Full-time and euphoria…
and some very happy faces were on show from all and sundry.
