On Saturday morning, Y8 was away at Wickersley for what is always one of the toughest fixtures on the calendar. Unfortunately, we were only able to take 8 lads as illness and injury hit our squad. Wickersley were very kind in letting us have two of their players to allow a very competitive 10-a-side game to take place.

We started really well and deservedly took the lead when George Walker caught the Wickersley keeper napping with a smart toe-poke into the bottom corner. The new formation was working wonders and despite a defensive lapse allowing Wickersley to equalise we were well on top at the break.
During the second half, Wickersley again let us have two of their players however we had a disorganised ten minutes at the back which allowed Wickersley in twice to lead 3-1. We rallied and organised again and were again the better side, Addison Taylor learning from a previous effort by slotting home low to the keeper’s right to make it 3-2.
Well done to everyone who took part!
