A much brighter day than the previous Sunday brought more numbers for this week’s home fixture against Pinley who politely made the journey to The Ivor Preece Field rather than both clubs not have a fixture.
Coach Murray West took the Under 6’s for a training session whilst the children who were of age to play in the Under 7’s team were divided between coaches Jordan Simpson and Gavin Barsby to take the field against their Pinley counterparts. After a spirited and enjoyable warm-up the players took to the field with mixed results. Pinley came out on top in the majority of the games with the ‘Street teams not playing to their usual high standard. There were moments of brightness throughout the day which will hopefully progress into better results in the future.
With the ‘Player of the Week’ trophy returning from its three week holiday the coaches were able to present the award to a new player, JJ. On his first training session he showed the confidence to get stuck in and concentrate on what the coaches were saying. He listened well and showed a keen interest in trying to understand the game. Well done.
This Sunday sees Broadstreet U7’s travel to Berkswell & Balsall. More information to follow.
