Brackley Town Lions U8s v Grendon Rangers U8s
After a chilly start to the day the Brackley Town U8 Lion's were warmed up and ready to go. Today we hosted Grendon Rangers and expected a close match.
Both teams started off well with some nice pressing play. Brackley Town soaked up the pressure and responded with some lovely creative football involving the whole team. This continued until the break with Brackley Town largely dominating the first half.
After half time Grendon Rangers came back fighting, but Brackley Town continued to defend well and create chances. Despite a more competitive second half with goals at both ends, Brackley Town finished the match strong and with their first win of the season.
This was Brackley Town U8 Lion's best performance so far, with all players showing signs of improvement.
Brackley Town Tigers u8s and Deddington Town Colts u8s played out a fantastic game of junior football on Saturday,
The game was played in a great spirt and all players on both teams clearly enjoyed themselves. Both teams played some lovely attacking football with some great goals scored. Their positional play, passing and decision making was great to see as was their defending too. All in all it was a great morning of football and all players were a credit to their clubs.
