Year 5 Cup Match v Westbourne

After a long wait at the start of the season, the Year 5 football team turned up to Sutton United eager to start their cup competition. After a warm-up to brush away the cold, the boy’s started strongly and took a foot hold in the game and created numerous chances. Our set pieces caused the Westbourne defence numerous problems with Daniel delivering to Kayden at the back post hitting the cross bar 3 times. A brief chat at the half and a few changes did not impact the team’s performance and we continued to dominated going forward. A cross from another Daniel gave Zac a great chance but he narrowly missed with his weak foot. As the game seemed to be heading to extra time, Kayden picked the ball up at left back and beat 5 or 6 players before putting the ball between the keepers legs. In the final few moments, Westbourne put the defence under pressure and a few great tackles and strong defensive performances meant we held onto the clean sheet progressing to the next round after the Christmas break.
