With illness and injury plaguing the senior section of the school there were some enforced changes to the 1st XI but nothing out of the ordinary in regards to the positions. It was a frustrating afternoon as our boys never got started and allowed Cottesmore to dominate the game. Tackling was not of the normal, tenacious nature and we struggled to string any real passes together.
There were a few positives to take from the game with Yonis and Elliott doing their upmost to take the sting out of any attacks, Daniel W worked well down the left and almost grabbed himself a goal, and Dylan worked tirelessly in the middle and was rewarded with a fine lobbed goal.
Cottesmore ran out deserved winners and highlighted the need for full concentration during Games lessons if we are to turn this season around.
Team: Ben E; Zach P, Robert R, Elliott M, Yonis A, Daniel W; Robbie E, Oliver C; Nabil Y, Dylan H (c); Peter K
