Away to high flying Silksworth and Hall Farm this frosty Saturday morning the Whites u11 starting the game superbly, straight from kick off you could see the boys were up for this game. Players were winning individual battles all over the pitch and halfway through the first half were justifiably rewarded with Aidan scoring a great goal, looping the ball over the keeper from just inside the box.
Towards the end of the first half Silkworth equalised through an unlucky own goal. The sides went in even at the break, despite Chester Town’s dominance.
A slow start to the second half saw Silkworth score three quick fire goals, despite this the Whites rallied and got back to playing some good football. With time ticking on Aidan grabbed another goal back from a good run and well placed finish. A few minutes later he was denied his hat-trick from a great tackle by the Silkworth defender. Silkworth notched a fifth with a few minutes to go with the game ending 5-2.
Despite the disappointing result the lads can be very proud of their performance and we saw some exciting signs of the team getting used to playing with each other and with performances like this and plenty of games in hand, the Whites will be no doubt be climbing up the table before too long.
Man of the match could have been any one of the lads today there were some really good performances, Callum had a good game in goal with some really good distribution today, the defence is looking more and more solid, Kian had another very good game making some important interceptions and played out some brilliant balls. Harrison looked solid as ever and made a few good runs out of defence.
In midfield Josh was solid and won more than his fair share of balls, Sam tried hard to unlock the Silksworth defence with some good runs and passes. Robin showed off his good touch and played through some well placed passes and was unlucky not to get on the score sheet himself. Jay had a brilliant game picking out some great through balls while not forgetting his defensive duties. Aidan was tenacious as ever, scoring a brace which could have easily been more on another day.
Conner and Alfie came off the bench and both got stuck in and played well adding different options to the attack. A delighted Harry took man of the match and is looking more assured at the back with each game.
Great effort lads a few more performances like that and the results will come.
