Thursday 29th August 2019 @ Hobmoore Primary School
East Birmingham 1-9 Erdington and Saltley
Team: Danny, Reo, Kortney, Hughey, Jahkadi, Kayden, Joshua, Markie, Keon, Oscar and Lennon
Scorers: Markie x 4, Keon x 3, Lennon and Oscar
Man of the Match – Keon: his first hat trick for the under 11s!
On a beautiful late summer evening on a bumpy, lumpy pitch, the under 11s played in their final pre-season game ahead of the 2019/20 campaign.
After a cagey and even opening third, the boys were level with East Birmingham and lacking spark.
Fortunately they were able to move up a few gears in the last two thirds of the game, while finally finding their shooting boots. With two hat-tricks, one apiece of Markie and Keon, and further goals from Oscar and Lennon, the boys were eventually good value for their victory.
A special mention must be reserved for Reo, who once again stepped up from the u10s with composure beyond his years, Joshua, who picked up several assists, and Keon, who bagged his first hat-trick for the under 11s.
Well done lads!
Up The Ton!
