Tuesday 4th December 2018 At last the boys were able to play a football match. It has been difficult to find schools that are able to play at the times when we are available. However, St Andrew’s and St Mark’s School in Surbiton answered the call and brought a team of Year 3 boys to play us on our slightly soggy pitch. They were a very strong team with a couple of excellent footballers.
We defended magnificently and were able to win the ball in midfield and have a couple of fast breaks in attack. Unfortunately, we could only create one shot on target which was saved by their keeper. At the other end of the pitch, the opposition took many powerful shots and one went in. If it hadn’t been for our defence and for some excellent saves by Zain in goal the score line would have been greater.
St Andrew’s & St Mark’s scored only one more and that was from an unstoppable penalty kick. I am so proud of the performance that our boys put in, playing against a school who had the pick of 45 Year 3 boys to choose from. With some more fixtures in the New Year, the future is looking promising for this group.
