U13s Sharks vs Littleborough Jnrs Stripes (A) - 12th Nov 2022
Good start but unable to last the distance
Cup game this morning for the U13s Sharks playing away against Littleborough Stripes.
Sharks started off brightly lots of energy and straight on the attack had 4 or 5 really good chance but unable to find the goal.
For the first 20 mins looked the far better team passing well and defending well, then got caught out and Littleborough scored.
We soon gave them a penalty which they scored making it 2-0, the boys kept their heads up and attacked again but got caught on the counter attack and Littleborough scored a third.
First half finished 4-0.
Second half went down hill, effort dropped, players attacking but not getting back and defending, work rate needs to be much higher. We managed to get a goal great ball over the top to put Jake through on goal and nice finish.
Game ended 10-1, could have been a very different game if we had put our chances away but thats football. Still a lot of work needed to get these boys competing and to gel as a team but we go again next week.
Still plenty of positives to take from the game.
Player of the match was selected by the referee today and given to Adrian, well done Adrian and well done Sharks got to keep up the fight!
