 Results for 17th November:

                   Home                   All Saints        v          Sandhurst                  Won 3-1


* All Saints were awarded a 2-0 ‘walk-over’ win for the scheduled League fixture against Lee Manor because Lee Manor were unable to field a full team and chose to forfeit the match. 

 Year 4 played two League matches (match reports by Dominic Egan):


                    Away                            Dalmain 1                    v       All Saints                                    Lost 1- 0


In the first match, All Saints C came up against a strong and well organised Dalmain 1. All Saints were on the back foot for most of the match but managed to mount occasional attacks on Damain’s goal through some exciting counter attacks led by Daniel and Arthur. At the heart of All Saints’ defence, Jenny and Robert again proved a fantastic pairing, with Jenny putting in tackle after tackle and Robert displaying wisdom beyond his years in his role as sweeper. Behind them, Isaac made numerous saves and was grateful to see a Dalmain shot come back off the bar.

 In the end, it took something special to breach All Saints’ defence. When a free kick was floated into the penalty area, one of the Dalmain players showed superb technique to volley the ball over Isaac and into the top corner of the net. Though All Saints continued to show great spirit throughout the rest of the game, they were not able to find an equaliser and Dalmain deservedly won the match 1-0. Having given their best, All Saints accepted their first defeat of the season with good grace, sportingly congratulating the Dalmain players.



                    Away                             St Winifred’s 2  v       All Saints                     Won 0-7


The second match could not have been more different from the first, with All Saints dominating a young St Winifred’s 2 team from first to last. All Saints played some excellent football, opening up the St Winifred’s defence with good passing and strong teamwork. Daniel and Arthur were again at the centre of the action, Daniel showing the vision to find Arthur with some excellent and unselfish passes and Arthur raining shots on goal.

 As well as scoring four goals, Arthur delivered a string of great corners, one of which was turned into his own goal by one of the St Winifred’s defenders. In the second half, All Saints fielded a much-changed team, allowing Isaac to emerge from goal, outpace the St Winifred’s defence and score twice. To their credit, St Winifred’s kept going to the final whistle, twice forcing James into action in All Saints’ goal. Nonetheless, St Winifred’s were probably relieved to hear the final whistle, which signalled a 7-0 victory for All Saints.
