Witney Viking's U 10s vs Brackley Town U10s
First time we have played this team, and in a cup game for the players it was a game they wanted to win to stay in top group.
Viking's started well putting pressure on Town, Brackley are not used to such a big pitch and struggled to adapt to the areas, with our usual passing style, the players were not completely comfortable, Viking's had a game plan and used it well to counter town, by going direct and putting the ball into areas behind the Brackley defence. Town haven't had to play against this style before and couldn't find any rhythm to their play. Viking's battled hard and put in some tough tackles. with some some good individual performances town didn't play as a team and Viking's took their chances, town didn't really create any chances of any note, the players will need to take the game as opportunity to learn of how teams play and how to use various tactics to win.
Good luck to Viking's in the next round.
