Results and Match Reports from 9th March 2013


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


          Home                  All Saints              v       St Winifred’s                        Won 2-0


All Saints dominated from the start against a useful St Winifred’s side. However, a missed penalty and some less-than-stellar shooting meant that it took some time for All Saints to convert their superiority into goals. The deadlock was finally broken when Sam seized on a loose ball in the penalty area, made space for himself and thumped the ball into the net. All Saints’ defence, meanwhile, was rarely troubled, leaving Isaac little or nothing to do in goal.

In the second half, All Saints continued to control the game, but were again slow to make their supremacy count. They finally achieved the two-goal cushion their play deserved when Isaac, who had switched positions with Sam, hammered in a shot that St Winifred’s goalkeeper could only parry and Robert, who seemed to be everywhere, put away the rebound with cool aplomb.


          Away                   Edmund Waller             v        All Saints                    Won 0-1


All Saints produced their best performance of the season so far against a strong Edmund Waller team that had narrowly beaten them a month before. All Saints thoroughly deserved their win, a fact graciously acknowledged by a number of the opposition’s parents.

After another of their now customary slow starts, All Saints began to pass the ball well and carve out some decent chances. Olly and Daniel combined well in midfield, Arthur worked tirelessly up front and Robert’s marauding runs from defence made him a constant threat.

Arthur seemed certain to score when he unleashed a rocket of a shot towards the top corner of the net, only to see the Edmund Waller goalkeeper produce a marvellous save. All Saints’ striker was not to be denied, however, and, following a lovely move that also involved Robert, Olly and Daniel, Arthur calmly slotted the ball into the far corner of the net to a huge roar from the sizeable watching crowd. Though Edmund Waller came back strongly, All Saints’ defence – in which Jenny, Dan and Robert were all outstanding – held out without any major scares. Unable to contain their delight, the team’s supporters responded to the final whistle by mounting a pitch invasion.
