Bloxham U10 v Brackley Town Juniors U10 - Sat 6th October
A really encouraging performance from Brackley in increasingly torrid conditions at Bloxham's recreation ground but great credit to both teams who bravely battled the elements to put on an inspiring show for the enthusiastic (but very wet!) supporters!
The best performance so far from our U10's who recovered from a very early setback to really dominate proceedings, the most pleasing aspect being their sheer willingness to battle through the rain to support each other and a lovely understating positionally to enable some really great moves to develop!
Bloxham endeavoured to battle back late in the game yet Brackley were equally resilient in transition, perhaps defending a little more pragmatically than we would normally encourage due to the very difficult conditions but our additional 'allow no shots on target' challenge to our gallant defenders proved very successful!
Well done Brackley!..lots of soggy but happy players, proud parents and a real appetite for next week's game in hopefully sunnier climes!
