U8’s whites took on Hebburn Town on Saturday in awful conditions and were outstanding in the first half. They did everything but find the back of the net, Josh and Oscar hitting the woodwork several times. Second half didn’t go their way, the highlight being Oscar nearly scoring a worldy from half way. MOTM went to William. Well played by all despite a frustrating result.
U8’s TJFA travelled to Leven Juniors with a much improved performance from the reverse fixture 2 weeks ago. They didn’t get the result they wanted but a great goal from Fin put a smile on the lad’s faces. MOTM Findlay for a great defensive display.
Our U9 blacks played Hetton Juve on Saturday in horrendous conditions. They never gave up and played some great football. With conditions starting to tell, it was not going to be their day. An amazing effort leaving the coaches extremely proud. MOTM went to Charlie John for never giving up and showing great all round improvement. A special mention to the whole team for their perseverance.
