An Unbeaten Term of Football for the U12 Team

The U12 football team are celebrating an excellent term of football having finished their season 19 matches unbeaten, winning 17 and drawing two matches.

The U12s played their final match on their home patch on Wednesday versus Kings Leadership Academy, Warrington. The feedback from their school was that they were going to provide us with a tough match boasting some impressive results. Although the first half ended goalless, the College finishing unbeaten was never in doubt, as despite suffering the setback of hitting both the post and bar and having a goal disallowed in the first half, the U12s completely dominated the second half scoring two quick fire goals early on to allay any fears of defeat. The second half also showed that the importance of playing numerous matches and endless training sessions as our opposition ran out of steam and could not cope with the electrifying pace of the College forward line. Although it was our centre half who stole the show, Saadullah P provided much steeliness in defence and powering forward whenever the opportunity arose.

This has been a term of U12s football where every individual has played an important role in the team and each match has seen a different individual set up and demonstrate excellent leadership skills by taking charge of the game and encouraging others to improve their effort levels. The term of football has been an educational experience where they have learnt the importance of communication in the game, fighting to win each ball, tackle and playing football using the full width of the pitch to create numerous chances.

Well done to all the U12s, who are already planning for football in Y8 and playing 11-a-side.
