Our first match of the season was against St Stephen’s Primary, who arrived at FPPS for a 3.45 kick off. We were in a confident mood as we had lots of returning players from last season but some new players as well. We started strongly, scoring a goal within the first five minutes. We scored five more goals in the first half, including two from Rocco and two from Harley. The other goal scorers in the first half were Roshane and Callum. The score was 6-0 at half time.
We took the opportunity to give some new players a run out in the second half and this was beneficial for them to get a taste of league football. Our newly formed defence were solid throughout the game, although St Stephen’s managed to get one goal through a small lapse in concentration. This didn’t matter because we scored three more goals in the second half to make the final score 9-1. The man of the match was Harley for his hat-trick and attitude to the game.
