Today saw our Under 6 Development team play their first competitive friendly match against a very good Durham City team. The session was into split three fifteen minute matches with Martynas Twinn, Ethan Wolf and Katie Walton each going in goal for a match and doing a brilliant job. Ethan was particularly successful and only conceded one goal. Despite a lack of practice using the full pitch I was impressed with how everyone set about defending their goal and attempting to pass to team mates. Martynas made many excellent tackles, Ryan Ripley and Finley Loan ran their legs off through the entire session selflessly and Ethan and Katie went about everything with a smile on their faces and worked very hard. The biggest cheer of the day was reserved for a superb goal by Andrew Hudspeth and a follow up strike by Ryan. Well done Chester-le-Street Town, already looking forward to another match.
