Under 15s get up for the cup

Teh squad was only short of Goalkeeper LJ due to last weeks nose operation. DD filled in between the posts and did a fantatsic job. HB started at right back with DK and HL taking up their usual positions in the centre of defence. AB started in his lefy back position. In Central Midfield the trio of JD OM and CC were uncahnged from last weeks game as were the front three of TD TMR and BM.

We started quickly and soon found our stride in attack. TD with the first quickly followed by a second from BM. We then made a few changes to give players valuable minutes and to stop the score becoming excessive. On came LP for TD, KS for HB and EB for CC. The game continued as it had in the previous 15 minutes with Hethersett pressing quickly to win the ball back and being caught on the counter. More changes followed and CC got our third with BM adding another quick 4th goal. HT

We spoke about movement and arriving for to early for set pieces and being caught stationary, We praised the movement of the front three and reminded them about getting ball side of the defender early. We also commented on the interplay of the midfield three in their many guises due to changes.

The second half Hethersett started well and settled before us, that being said we stretched them again and soon made it 5-0 and then 6-0 TD with his hattrick. We continued to rotate players and positions and found our selves running out 6-3 winners. A lot of credit to all involved today for what could have been a walk over. Everybody understanding that it was a great opportunity to get minutes into players and try a few of the squad in new posititions.
