Sporting Stonnall U10s – November/December Report

A really positive two months for the team. We achieved our goal of winning two matches on a Sunday with the prize to take place in the New Year. Even better were the two clean sheets which are difficult to achieve in Youth football.

To compare to September we drew/won 20% of our matches in November/December that percentage had risen to 40%. That is a really positive achievement. Let’s aim for 50% in January.

November at Leamore was an excellent effort from the players and we had several comments from fellow coaches, spectators and referees about how much the team had improved and their never give up attitude to matches win, lose or draw.

We have had new players: Arthur and Harry and both had added something extra to the team in terms of defence and attack.

As always I am proud of all the players particularly the numbers who turn up for training either on a Tuesday or a Saturday. Even more so those who can make it on both days. The level of commitment has been superb and I want the boys to understand that you need to put effort into anything in life to achieve your goals.

As a team we need to keep working on our defence and making sure we press quickly as well as attacking with pace and continuing to create and take our chances. We are on the right path.

Finally great to see the boys have such a good time at the Christmas social. Their behaviour was excellent and this is an important part of being a team learning to get on with people. Thanks again to Janet and Jim for organising the event.

An extra special thanks to Jim for stepping up as an extra coach, organising man of the match and being a sounding board for ideas.

Your continued support as parents is always appreciated in the cold, rain and wind.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. See you in January.

Sporting Stonnall U10s – October Review

Sporting Stonnall U10s - October 2015

Sporting Stonnall U10s – October 2015


Another win and a draw in our matches in October along with positive performances in our other matches have seen Sporting Stonnall continue to make progress. We are starting to develop a number of different styles of football in addition to improving our short passing, possession based game. Another positive aspect of our attacking play is that we have created more chances this month than last. In fact we scored 4 goals this month in comparison to 3 in September from less matches.

The lads have worked hard in training on Tuesdays and Saturdays to develop their skills as well as their all round understanding of roles and responsibilities within the team. As always this has to be supported by a positive attitude to the team and one of the most pleasing aspects of October has been the camaraderie of the players. They always support each other whatever the result. I have set the team a challenging target for November to win 3 matches. It should be a good experience attempting to achieve this.

Thanks as always to parents and families for their support we really appreciate your efforts.

The opening month for Sporting Stonnall has been a very positive experience. We have been able to win two matches and draw one. The players have been committed in training and been willing to work hard and try their best in every match.

We have been playing teams who have been together for 2,3 or even 4 years so considering we have been a team for six months I am very proud of the boys attitude and effort. The next step for the team is to start to add the passing style of football their coaches want them to play on top of the hard work and pressing.

I am really grateful to Annie and Jim for helping me with paper work and player of the match. Coaching the team is enough to think about so assistance is always welcome. Mike and Ruth have taken some photographs of the team which are attached to this article and serve to reflect the positive nature of Sporting Stonnall.
 
Finally a big ‘Thank You’ to all the parents who have come to support us we really appreciate the time and effort you put in – without you there is no team.

Presentation Evening 2015

Hi all Parents & Players of Stonnall Juniors,
Our first annual player presentations evening was a fantastic occasion backed by equal support. As I said last night, this time last year there were two lads kicking a ball on a playing field, today that number is 34 players and that field is now the home of Stonnall Juniors FC. All of you have made this possible. On behalf of myself and SJFC committee, thankyou and here’s to many more social occasions.
