Our first 9-a-side game of the season started with a victory over St. Stephen’s Primary School on Tuesday 29th November. We have had a great squad of players to pick from this year, as there is lots of talent and competition amongst the boys. For the first game of the year, Fallings Park showed great team spirit and teamwork throughout which contributed hugely to our 8-0 win. By half time, Fallings Park lead 5-0 with goals from Callum, Selwyn, Rocco and Tawanda, scoring two. Poor Remay didn’t have much to do in goal, a sign that proved our outfield players were doing a tremendous job. We showed good movement on the pitch and worked the defenders hard to create good play. Three more goals came in the second half from Tayo, Selwyn and Rocco making it 8-0. Our team could have made it nine, unfortunately a missed penalty didn’t quite make it over the line.
Fallings Park showed great sportsmanship in congratulating St. Stephen’s at the end of this thrilling game, who managed to keep their heads held high. Well done to the boys who now have their first win going into the next match. Man of the Match for today’s game goes to Callum, who showed great individual play as well as creating play for others – Well done, Callum!
Fallings Park 8-0 St. Stephen’s
