Brackley Town U12s 0 – 10 Moreton 

3 Aims: 

  1. Can we play 10 passes backwards in final 1/3rd (looking to recycle possession) – Yes
  2. Can we break the midfield line 10 times when playing out – No (am not going to count times we played ball over the top and won it back)
  3. Can we have 3 rotations on a goal kick? - no  

As you can see from the scoreline, a tough day at the office and a lot of work to be done away from training. We went 3 down within 10 minutes but after that started to pressure them well but were undone by 2 balls over the top before half time. 

The second half then was about trying to work on patterns of play and understanding roles, but as can be understood when down by that much it becomes a struggle, especially in the conditions and with our goalkeeper having to go off at halftime (huge credit to Main for stepping up in awful weather without hesitation). Next week we’ll look to overcome this against a very good Highfield side who beat us last season.
