First friendly match of the season for the U10 B1 team against a very strong Mount Merrion.

First half with plenty of quality shown in moving the ball with Tim managing the midfield and Taelan and Gavin to finalize but conceded a few silly goals to the opposition. Second half the team paid the price in terms of fitness mainly and team’s rotation with only 1 sub available while the opposition was able to field 6 subs.

The boys tried to maintain control notably with some fine efforts from Daniel and some gladiator style defensive play from Finn but they eventually succumbed under more goals.

Room for improvement but a promising first half!
