Eastwood CFC U13’s red kicked off the new season today with a well earned and extremely hard fought draw.
With two outfield players, Charlie first and then Alfie filling in for our usual goalkeeper we were perhaps at a disadvantage straight away, but the defensive 3 of Ben, Dylan (who put in a real captains performance today) and Jack/Charlie 2nd half, protected both the keepers, and along with a midfield of Ewan, Connor R, Destine, Alfie, (first half) and Brad they kept the opposition from scoring. (They only managed to score when Dylan was down injured!) Brad did a stunning job of man marking their most dangerous player!
Kasper and Connor E, teamed up perfectly in attack and were a constant threat the other end, some fantastic saves from the opposition goalie denied Kasper a hat trick! It was a nerve wracking end to end game with a well deserved point for us. Man of the Match went to Charlie and Alfie for stepping in and playing in goal for us but it was a whole team performance and each and every lad could have got the honours!
