U9 As v Ardingly
Copthorne 0 Ardingly 5
We were outplayed in this game by a very polished Ardingly side. They were all very good on the ball, and also well organised as a team. However, we did have two very good chances to score and there were times when we managed to string some good passes together in spite of the pressure being placed on us. James N stood out for us as the player who handled the situation the best, keeping a cool head in spite of the shortage of space. We were a little unlucky as we scored two own goals, and this gave the final outcome a rather unflattering look. Well tried boys.
U9 Bs v Ardingly
Copthorne 0 Ardingly 2
This was quite a close-fought game, but Ardingly deserved to win in the end. They dominated the possession, but we tackled well, and closed them down quite efficiently without creating many chances for ourselves. Luca did well in goal, and Toby stood out with his persistant tackling in midfield. We needed to keep a better sense of positional play in our minds as we did get dragged around and caught out on a few occasions. Good effort boys!
