Saturday 18th September 2021 @ Vale Stadium, Castle Vale
Birmingham Primary Schools’ FA – Division One
Team: Jack, Oliver, Cairo, Shae, Pharrell, Rio, Matharr, Remell, Zacchaeus, Endri and Hashim
Goals: Endri x 2, Matharr, Rio, Remell and Zacchaeus
Man of the match: Rio and Matharr – an attacking threat from midfield throughout the game
There were many encouraging signs on show during the BPSFA 7-a-side Championship two weeks ago. Yet once again, the under 11s boys left us all filled with optimism thanks in no short part to their amazing attitude on and off the pitch. They genuinely are a brilliant bunch of lads and a joy to work with!
The opening twenty minutes saw Aston and Erdington trade blows in an end-to-end affair. Aston had their fair share of the spoils and we relied on the tremendous reflexes of captain Jack to keep us in the game on at least three occasions in the first half. Despite Aston having several chances, we ended the opening half with a three goal lead courtesy of strikes from Endri, Mathaar and Rio.
Our second and third goals came in quick succession and this knocked Aston off their tracks. Consequently, we were able to pull away during the second period with further goals from Remell (a peach of a strike), Endri and Zacchaeus.
Once again, the boys worked their socks off out of possession and defended valiantly as a team. Throughout the side, players were prepared to sacrifice personal glory for the team and this was arguably the most pleasing aspect of the victory. As stated in the outset of this report, the boys really are a great bunch of lads and this promises to be an incredibly enjoyable season!
Well done boys!
Up The Ton!
