Thorley Manor under-10 Black win their 9v9 taster match
Thorley Manor under-10 Black adapted well on a big, muddy pitch to win their 9v9 taster match against Ashwell Academicals Red.
In tricky conditions, the players pressed and passed well on a pitch double the size they are used to.
The under-12s were unlucky not to win against Buntingford Cougars Stripes after fighting back from two goals down.
Sonny played a blinder between the sticks standing in for regular goalkeeper Kieran.
The under-11s suffered their first defeat of the season when they went down 3-0 away to a physical Shephall United side.
The scoreline flattered the hosts after a fantastic 60-minute performance by Luca, Toby, Cameron and Callum as a defensive unit.
Under-11 Black learned some valuable lessons in a 2-2 draw with Baldock.
They fell behind having taken the lead and were then able to equalise, but they failed to take six or seven great chances and their usual fight and hunger was missing for periods of the game.
A significant numerical disadvantage did not stop under-nine Black racking up the goals when they met Melbourn Dynamos.
Louis and Sam fired in four apiece and Archie also netted despite their opponents having three more players on the pitch.
Under-eight Orange performed well when they stepped up to a bigger pitch for their first six-a-side fixture against BSCFC Blues.
They gained valuable experience ahead of their transition into a seven-a-side outfit next season, being composed throughout and producing good passing and movement.
A big change in attitude and increased determination helped under-eight Black earn a deserved draw with Shephall United while there was also a much-improved display from the under-sevens as they got a positive result against Shefford Saints.
