15's Football Training

It has been a pleasing start to the Lent term for the U15B Football side. Their attendance and enthusiasm at training has led to some positive improvement in not only their individual skill but their overall team play. They have played well across all of their games with the stand out performances against both UCS and Brighton at home. The boys started the season with a solid 3-2 away Win against St John’s Leatherhead. Notable mentions to Chike Igwilo, Shaan Kohli and Paddy Carr for their impressive displays. On a wet and windy afternoon in Round 2, the boys competed well against Tonbridge. Despite coming away with a 3 goals to 1 loss on a small, muddy pitch, the boys learnt valuable lessons such as taking shooting opportunities when they arise and also moving the ball into the wide channels to maximise the space on the pitch. Both Nicholas Richard Castro and Joshua Theaker played extremely well and Josh Layton was rewarded with a goal. Under the cloudy skies of West Dulwich on another damp Saturday morning, the 15 B’s graced Pitch 5 with their presence. With 4 goals to Chike Igwilo as Captain and 1 goal to Paddy Carr, the boys put forward a physically dominant performance. It was great to see them play out from the back, exhaust the space and link with the midfield to get the ball forward. This promising display was evidence of their hard work and dedication at training. Their next match was another home fixture against Brighton on Saturday February 3rd. With plenty of running in the legs and their first exposure to Pitch 2 this season, the U15 B’s went about creating plenty of scoring opportunities up front. The score was 7-0 at half time through some enterprising individual brilliance and accurate finishing. The second half saw an increased amount of team play that led to endless scoring opportunities and if it were not for some missed scoring opportunities, the score line could have been larger. Goals were shared around between Josh Layton (3), Chike Igwilo (2), Jamil Graham, James Elliot, Hugo Chievely Bent, Tom Fallowfield, Nicholas Richard Castro and Seb Cruz Parodi. The boys can be pleased with their results and performances this half term and they should be determined to consistently improve upon their individual and team performances after the half term break.
