10th NovemberSunday Roundup
U7 Blue had a slow start, but came back strongly. We seem to be ending games much better than we start them. A great pen from Kobe and another hat trick from Daniel. Great defending from Noah, Jackson, Toby and Cooper. Eli and Kobe showing their versatility in all positions.Very proud of the lads effort and application today.
U7 White were a in totally different league today. The passing was beautiful and the defending was top notch, goals just kept coming. A massive shout out to Blake for his defensive duties. Nothing passed him when he was at the back. Harry smashed in 4 quality finishes which had the fans cheering, Joey managed another hat trick and other goals came from Anand, Blake and James. Tomismi and Max were also unplayable today and the confidence just keeps coming. Well done to the team today for a perfect and unplayable performance, our first clean sheet!
U8 Blue played a great game, the team have put together a great run of performances and are growing as a team. Goal of the game was from Ilan, in a move which saw our corner passed around and back to our keeper who kept the passing moving for a goal that saw every player score. Ethan and Eddie chopped in with a free kick and a poachers goal respectively.
U9 Blue faced extremely tough opposition and were tested in every aspect of their game. The team need to keep working hard and improve their defending, marking and passing. On the plus side they never gave up and the boys were very brave fighting to the end! It resulted in an impressive goal which showed good teamwork and lovely finish from Rupert. Some brave performances from the boys and plenty to work on in training.
U9 White showed a fantastic fighting spirit and refused to give up that resulted in a flurry of goals in the final stages of the game. The team’s application was first class and everyone played their part. Isaac, Nathan and Raphael got on the scoresheet while Jayden scored a memorable goal from the halfway line.
U10 White game had everything from goal line clearances, long balls, possession based football, crunching tackles and goals. Very please to watch the boys produce a stunning display and be very focused throughout the game. Our corner routine was set up and practice in training and it duly delivered problems after problems for the opposition. A tale of two halves from the boys and produced so many chances to score. Creativity and passion was shown today and it made it a fascinating game to watch. End to end towards the game close and it was there for the taking. A neat flick from a Albee cross produced a truly stunning goal yet scrappy to cap off a deserved goal for Alessandro. A couple of goal line clearances from Marc-vincent and David showed just how much they were up for this. All the boys can be very proud of their efforts today and go home smiling on what they produced for the parents to witness. A big mention to Benji who made some ridiculous saves today and pulled off the unthinkable at times. He's composure and distribution was excellent. A man of the match performance from David for his grit, attitude, tackling and teamwork.
A salutary for U11 Blue today in that being the best footballers isn't enough, conditions opponents & circumstances need to be overcome. The right to play has to be earned & then little unbeaten runs can become longer ones.
U11 White, its great to see all that hard work done in training eventually pay off in games and a true testament to the outstanding coaches we have at Wingate. The boys were magnificent today, fluid passing, great one touch and two touch football and a clear ability to both retain and recycle the ball. Everyone worked hard for each other meaning it was an overall team effort and so enjoyable to watch everyone playing with so much confidence. Goals from Bailey, Josh, Olly and Ruffi helped us along the way not forgetting Zack in goal who made one outstanding save. If we can play week in week out at the same intensity, desire and consistency then our ability within the team will continue to shine through.
U14 won 4-1 in a league game against Cheshunt today, in a really impressive performance. The effort level was brilliant throughout against a very good team. It was fast and furious in the first half, but the boys were able to combine that level of intensity with some really good football in the second half. Goals from Josh (2), Dom and a pearler from Mikey sealed the win, but the game was actually won be a brilliant defensive and midfield performance. Great team win!
