Tonight our football success continued when our Y5 boys matched the girl’s performance, qualifying for the HAS 5 a side finals.
On a cold night, our newly formed Y5 team had a great start against Gillshill and in an 8 minute game had them beat 6 goals to 2. Our next game was again Neasden, and after having just watched them beat Thanet 7-0, we knew this was going to be a tough game.
The match started awfully with a goal being conceded within the opening few seconds. After a few minutes the boys equalised. This gave the our team a huge boost and they began playing some quality football. After a few minutes, the score was 3-1 and our boys were on top and were not given Neasden any time on the ball thanks to strong work across the pitch from Kayden. A good strike from Neasden saw them bring the score back to 3-2, but a late penalty, taken by captain Oliver M, saw the game put to bed – our boys had won!
Full of confidence, our boys stormed into their final game against Thanet. With some excellent play up front from Reggie P, Oliver M and Archie G, our lads came away with a 7-0 victory.
This is a very promising team with lots of talent. Well done boys! Good luck in the finals next year.
Y5 Superstars (L-R): Kayden A, Leighton E, Kalo B, Reggie P, Oliver M (c) and Archie G.
