Great Barr Harriers 0 – 5 Stonnall Juniors
Goals from Mac 2, Harry 1, Charlie 1, DJ 1.
MOTM awarded to Tom & Zak, for 45 minutes Zak worked really hard on the left wing and made some very good tackles, showed determination and gave a good outlet to his central midfielders. Tom was solid at centre of defence showed great awareness, tracked the runners against him, but most of all he bought the ball out at his feet and looked to advance forward. Well done Tom & Zak.
This was a game of two halves – first half was a little erratic and rushed, little vision and very little communication. Second half we played some very good football, passed and moved and even some one touch (from the training ground) that tells me you play with confidence (confident to play one touch with speed) we played through the centre James to Charlie to Mac – goal!
We played with width through the wide players who in the second half talked to their left and right wing backs – handing over players then taking up space to be a good out let. A great Tom/Pembo combination to stop a definite goal – fantastic awareness and commitment from you both. Thoroughly enjoyed the performance lads let’s keep working on the training ground. You all seem to be playing with aggression now!
Well done to our new signings Jacko, Benno & Zak who have shown great commitment and are settling in very well. Well done to our keeper ‘Pembo’ who made it through the trials for the County – a fantastic achievement Pembo – your team and all the parents are very proud of you.
