Chester-le-Street U10 Hoops won their opening game of the season this morning at Monkton. The Hoops we’re a bit thin on the ground missing 4 players and then over night Harry Duncan and Philippa Hunter were also sick. The opposition went 2 goals up in the first half, but the Hoops never gave up and Harry and Jonathon Buckton were unbelievably strong showing great team work. The Hoops then on a break scored with a shot from Callum Brandford making it 2-1. Alex Dodgson was playing some great football just shot wide. Daniel Baines earned his pocket money this week and handled the pressure well. Philippa Hunter, although unwell, gave all she had for the team and Alex Hawthornwaite was putting pressure on the opposition and having a great game. Callum Brandford then scored another two goals putting the Hoops 3-2 up and completing his hatrick. Final score 3-2 to the Hoops. Great game.
