The U8Bs played their first ever match as a team on Wednesday and left Ardingly with a well deserved 2-0 win. William in goal ensured that we played the ball up the pitch from defence in a calm fashion and Rian and Ronnie in front of him both played with assurance as they tackled and passed their way through the game. Rian’s excellent run from his own half nearly produced the first goal but it was Nicholas who eventually scored a well deserved goal after making some great tackles in the Ardingly half. The second half was dominated by the Copthorne boys and their reward came just before full time when Xavier scored an excellent goal after some tireless work in midfield. This was an impressive first game for the team who can hopefuly reproduce the same effort in weeks to come.
