Mr. Gurran had the pleasure of taking 11 Y7 lads to Oakwood for a football fixture. Having been beaten 8-1 in the corresponding home fixture we were certainly looking for improvement.
Half-time saw us 1-0 down from their only shot on goal. We were a little sleepy at the back first 5 minutes and were lacking in composure (Logan Billen – “Sir, what’s composure?!!”) in the final third.
Second half a few poor passing decisions cost us and we trailed 3-0 against the run of play.
However, the effort, endeavour, and skill of these lads saw them score two fantastic goals (Ludo Sivak and Alfie Lowe) to get back to 3-2. Unfortunately, as we pushed for an equaliser Oakwood scored a couple on the break to win 5-2 (hugely flattering to them).
Many positives, not least the number of chances we are creating and with the lads now knowing what I mean when I say they need to have a bit more composure in the final third, our goal tally should improve!!
