 Results for 10th November:


Year 5 played two League matches:


                    Away                            Eliot Bank B       v       All Saints          Won 0-4


The quality of All Saints overall play against Eliot Bank was very high: the passing was good as was the positional play and the team was full of running.  Jude got All Saints off to the perfect start, scoring within 30 seconds of the kick-off with his first touch, placing the ball in the corner out of the keeper’s reach. He scored again a few minutes later, and from that point All Saints put the Eliot Bank goal under constant pressure.  Theo hit a post, and Archie hit the cross-bar from a corner, and Jonathan was making his familiar powerful runs at the defence. The second half followed the same pattern. The Eliot Bank goal-keeper saved with his feet from Theo, who had another shot kicked off the line, and Jonathan seized on a poor clearance and struck the post.  All Saints third goal saw Theo pick the ball up in his own half and dance past several defenders before scoring from close range, while Jude was denied a hat-trick when a great shot brought out an even better save from the keeper. Archie deservedly got the fourth goal. Having been tripped in the area, he picked himself up and took the penalty.  Archie’s fierce shot almost floored the keeper and Archie walked the rebound into the net. In the end, All Saints ran out 4-0 winners.  It could have been a lot more.


                    Home                  All Saints            v       Rushey Green   Lost 1-2


All Saints had a long wait for their second match and could not reproduce their earlier energy levels.  Rushey Green also proved much tougher opposition and made it difficult for All Saints to play their passing game.  Rushey Green struck with a shot from distance from their captain, a District-level player who was at the centre of much of the play.  In fact, All Saints did well to keep him in check, but could not prevent Rushey Green from scoring a second goal before half-time, again a well-struck shot from distance.  All Saints were clinging on, and Jack in the All Saints goal produced some fine saves to prevent Rushey Green from going further ahead.  In the second half All Saints won a penalty, for a hand-ball, and Archie made no mistake from the spot.  However, All Saints were not able to find an equaliser and Rushey Green finished up 2-1 winners.
