Sirius Year 7 Football Team Build On Initial Success And Defeat St.Mary’s.

[02 Oct 2017]

Sirius Year 7 Football Team followed up their first league win with another great win (2-1)  against rivals St. Mary’s.

 A gritty performance as the boys went down to a goal towards the end of the first half in a game which was not really dominated by either side.  

Immediately after going one down the boys responded positively and were rewarded with a penalty which unfortunately was squandered!

However, Mason Elliott put right his miss with a well taken goal -late on in the first half. 

A great deal of character was shown in the second half with the boys actively responding and taking heed of their half-time talk! A determined performance all-round with players working harder to close players down and engage in stronger challenges – and more organised in covering and working as a team.

This was particularly illustrated by Keane Pyzer; Charlie Matchett;  and Liam Wilkinson. Whilst Max Sadler and Jack Entwhistle stopped everything that was sent their way in goal.  Mason Elliott worked tirelessly along with  Klaidas Kaukasas; Harry Shooter; Daniel Bunce; Jamie Whiting; Ethan Kirkby; and Reece Whittles.

Reece Shipley worked their defenders up front and it was he who after some near misses snatched the winner after some tenacious work from Reece Whittles! 

A great win and one which gave me a great deal of satisfaction and showed that I have the same amount of desire and passion to win a game as many years ago!

A trait I will hope to instill in the boys!

A marvellous performance -please credit all the boys involved.

Thanks to Kean Naylor (PE SCITT) who supported me with the team.
