U13s win 1-0 at K Sports
Alfie Dennis scores vital goal
With the boys facing our second friendly fixture, it showed that we haven't quite found the spark required in a newly formed team. Throughout the game there were very few moments of excellence from either side. The game took shape with scrappy exchanges throughout.
The young Angels defended bravely, throwing bodies at a few goal mouth scrambles. Having nearly conceded 2/3 goals in the first half, we managed to break the deadlock dead on 35 minutes (HT) when right sided midfielder Frankie Lavington beat his man with a delightful bit of skill before delivering a cross to striker Ben Shields, the following shot was blocked - however tenacious midfielder Alfie Dennis was on hand to fire home!
Second half was more of the same, seeing us create more chances in behind, failure to convert led to some nervy moments. At times KSports played some great football as were unlucky not to get a draw at least. Hitting the post, forcing a save our of Goalkeeper Henry Sworder and finally a goal line clearance from makeshift centre half Harvey Lawrence. The boys battled through and secured a 1-0 win.
Plenty of levels to go through for the young Angels. But with 2 games , 2 wins and 2 clean sheets on the board. Solid foundations are being laid!
