Thorley Manor teams show resilience and desire against Royston Town, Broadhall Youth, Baldock Town, BSCFC and FC LAFA
Thorley Manor under-13s showed their fighting spirit to fight back from three goals down to draw 3-3 with Royston Town.
They looked a little tired in the first period and did not hold their usual high line as they allowed their opponents to pin them inside their own half.
But they improved dramatically after the restart and showed real determination to draw level against a good team.
Resilience and desire were also key ingredients for under-12 Black when they took on a physical and technical Broadhall Youth.
After a tight first half, their opponents began to look a little more accomplished and it was no surprise when they broke the deadlock.
However, with 10 minutes to go the Thorley side clicked into gear and were able to overpower the opposition and do themselves proud.
A depleted under-11 White put together some nice passing moves when they travelled to Baldock Town Crusaders.
The hosts kindly agreed to play an eight-a-side match due to Thorley's lack of numbers, with the visitors unlucky not to convert some of their great chances.
Under-eight White and under-eight Black performed brilliantly against BSCFC Rovers and FA LAFA Purple respectively.
Keeping their heads up was the main focus of the day for the players as they concentrated on knowing where their team-mates were and trying to find them in space.
