U11 & U10 Football v Banstead Prep – Wednesday 9th November

Match 1

On Wednesday 9th November, we welcomed Banstead Prep school to a home match. All of us started slowly, but gradually became focused and determined. We pushed forward against Banstead charging rapidly down and up the field. It was quite competitive on the field. Our goalkeepers were Hartley for the first half and Jackson in the second half. Oscar was in defence and took some spectacular blocks which contributed to the team. We also had some great attackers and midfielders pushing towards their goal. Joseph, Brodie, Jacob and I had some good opportunities to score.

Overall, it was a great match and we all played really well. We went inside to host match tea and had some delicious hotdogs!

Thank you to Mr Steel for his brilliant coaching.

Match 2

On Wednesday 9th November, we hosted Banstead Prep school. One team were playing on the grass and we were on the MUGA. Our team players were; Max and Henry upfront and midfield while Akash and Kasra were our strong defenders with me in goal. Max was the captain of the team. Kick off was under way and Oakhyrst soon realised that Banstead were really good. We all remembered Miss Dance’s tactics which was to pass and move while going forward but suddenly Banstead got the ball, but I managed to make a save.

Overall it was really enjoyable. After the match we had Hotdogs, Crips, KitKat and some orange juice.

Thank you to Miss Dance for supporting and encouraging us.
