The lads performed brilliantly today against FC Premier and Brewood. Every player should be proud of his performance after showing such resilience, team spirit and skill against two good sides. You all deserved the plaudits you received at the end of the second game.
Friendly Match Panthers U7’s v FC Premier
The lads started the game brightly and looked a class act throughout this encounter in which they could have scored a hatful of goals. The chances that came were provided by tigerish tackling and some flowing passing moves. The team pressed the opposition from the front through Ashton Cooper who bagged another two goals in this match to add to his collection (let’s hope he is not on a fiver a goal Martin). Sam Scott also got himself on the score sheet putting in another industrious display in midfield. The Panthers looked unbeatable at the back with Captain Courageous George Whitehouse, Ben Herrington and Josh Mason all putting in a shift. I thought the Panthers played some of their best football I have seen all season with Lewis Rochelle resorting to making sandcastles in his goalmouth. Man of the Match was Ashton “Goals” Cooper.
Friendly match Panthers U7’s v Brewood
Against an impressive Brewood team the Panthers showed resilience and team spirit which again showed what a brilliant set of lads we have got. The lads recorded their second clean sheet of the day with goalkeeper Lewis Rochelle having very little to do but take goal kicks which he did so expertly spraying the balls out to the wings. This game was where the midfield players of Louis Beasley, Rio Parkes-Mahoney, Josh Reynolds and Sam Scott came into their own scrapping for every ball and knocking the ball around with increasing confidence. Another superb display was epitomised by silky winger Louis Beasley who won the Man of the Match award.
Well done to all the lads who yet again did their coaches and parents proud. The squad for this week was:
Lewis Rochelle, George Whitehouse (c), Josh Mason, Ben Herrington, Sam Scott, Josh Reynolds, Louis Beasley, Rio Parkes-Mahoney and Ashton Cooper.
