Results for 20th October:

  Year 6 played two League matches, reported here by Elliot Woods our new pitch-side reporter for Year 6 matches:

 

          Away          St William of York         v       All Saints                        Won 0-5

 

All Saints went into this game already knowing what to expect, having played them in the Millwall tournament. With this in mind they came out full of confidence and flair. The passing and movement was sublime, causing St William of York to make some harsh tackles which should have resulted in free kicks. From defence to attack All Saints were in control of the game, within minutes chances were wasted but it didn't take long before Enitan opened the scoring with a cool left foot shot into the bottom corner.  At the start of the second half George Smith doubled All Saint's lead with a tap in from close range and it wasn't long before Natty made it three with a right foot belter from distance. From this moment on All Saints dominated every area of the pitch, with St William of York not getting near our goal. With minutes to go Ted and Enitan wrapped the game up with a goal apiece, giving All Saints a 5-0 win. This was a fantastic start to All Saints’ league campaign.

 

 

          Home         All Saints                       v        Eliot Bank                      Drew 0-0

 

This was a game of the unknown since Eliot Bank is a new team in the league, so we were unsure of their capability. Within the first two or three minutes we knew this was going to be a much tougher game. The movement and passing of All Saints was dealt with by a well-organized and disciplined team. With chances few and far between Tayo and Luis kept Eliot Bank’s strikers quiet with some great defensive work, whilst All Saints midfield dominated with the hard work from Enitan, Ben and Oliver creating a handful of chances which were handled well by the opposition. A nervy moment came when number 7 for Eliot Bank broke through to force a fine save by Max to keep the score at 0-0. With seconds ticking away the final chance fell to Enitan who broke through on goal but his shot whisked past the post, a defender was close on him and made the challenge after Enitan had shot. Enitan appealed for a penalty which wasn't given and quite rightly so. The final whistle blew with the match ending in a 0-0 draw.

 

Man of the match for both games was Enitan.

 Year 4 also played two League matches:

 

Away               Lucas Vale      v          All Saints         Won 0-2

 

All Saints’ first competitive match was against Lucas Vale.  An early attack by Lucas Vale was thwarted by Jenny, who had an excellent game in defence putting in a number of crucial tackles and clearing her lines well.  At the other end, Arthur hit a fierce cross field pass which Sam steered into the net at the far post to put All Saints 1-0 up.  All Saints won a series of corners as Lucas Vale were forced to defend, but at the other end Isaac was called into action making a good save from a well-hit effort.  Towards the end of the half All Saints might have had a penalty as Arthur looked to have been tripped in the area when shaping to shoot, but it was not given.  Into the second half, a long clearance from Robert saw Arthur make a strong run on goal, but his shot was saved.  Meanwhile, Lucas Vale hit a post from an acute angle and Isaac safely gathered the rebound.  In midfield, Olly was working hard, tracking back when Lucas Vale were attacking and getting forward to support the attack, and it was Olly who scored All Saints’ second goal from close range, having been picked out by Fergus.   Lucas Vale had a couple of chances to get a goal back but put their shots wide, and some good defending by Robert when left with two on one meant that All Saints goal remained intact and won the match 2-0.

 

Home              All Saints         v         Dalmain 2        Won 1-0

 

All Saints continued to play some good football in their second match, against Dalmain 2.  The passing and support for one another was particularly impressive.  Once again, the defensive pairing of Jenny and Robert looked pretty solid, and when Dalmain did manage to get a strike on goal Daniel proved equal to it, making two excellent saves.  There was a scare in the first half when a back pass to the goalkeeper resulted in a free kick to Dalmain deep in the All Saints area, but the opportunity was wasted.  The deadlock was broken by a fine individual goal from Olly.  Cutting in from the left he hit a low shot which beat the keeper on his near post.  After that, Isaac had a couple of chances to increase All Saints’ lead but was unlucky, and the match ended 1-0, with All Saints having got off to the perfect start – two wins, no goals against, and good individual and team performances.
