Yesterday, our U10 Red Team played their final group game of their League Cup.
Coach Rachelle said:
“They were down to 6 players due to illness but they went out and worked hard as a team of 6 from start to finish in the rain.
In what was our last group cup game, the team had to play 6 v 7 without a goalkeeper for the duration of the game. Not an ideal situation but the boys always rose to the challenge and put the work in when needed.
The second half saw the team equalise which took them through to a round of penalties. The team got their win on the penalties in what was a close game with the opposition.
Their ability to be adaptable to last-minute changes and determination to play with the disadvantage of an under-load situation was truly admirable.
Thank you to Tahir for covering whilst I was off and to Paul for attending the match to support with match day admin despite his own child being unwell and not playing today.”
Well done Colts. Fantastic resilience, determination, and team spirit.
Well done to Coach Rachelle for finding a way to get the game organised despite the bad weather and for coping with all the last-minute issues on the day – whilst completing the last practical day of her UEFA C course.
