Year 7 Football

10th November 2022

This week the Year7 boys started their football journey at Cheslyn Hay with back to back fixtures - Monday v Perton Middle, Tuesday v Cannock Chase. 
Monday night's fixture didn't go to plan with a squad of 13 depleted to 10 due to illness and injuries. However the boys lined up in a trusty 2-4-2 formation against a confident Perton Middle school. The pitch shone with the floodlights shining down as we kicked off on a slightly smaller pitch than expected (double booked astro turf), we dominated play from the off . Josh Tennant picks the ball up from a throw in on the left side of box, squares the ball to Fin Brown who drives the ball home bottom corner 1-0 CHA!!  The boys continued to pile on the pressure and the provider turned into goal scorer, toe poking home a fantastic ball from Olly Edwards to make it 2-0. Two could of been three as the ref awarded a penalty for a clear handball but Tyler Grifiths smashed it down the middle..
Half time 2-0 CHA
Second half kicks off, it's cold and miserable but the lads continue to set the game alight with their flowing football. Fin Brown smashed home a 20 yard freekick left to right, a sublime strike 3-0. The game finished with yet another penalty this time the dead ball specialist (Fin) put it away for 4-0. Game over MOTM Tyler Griffiths - bar the Penalty he linked defense into attack, broke down any counter attacks and won every aerial battle.
Match Day Two Cheslyn Hay vs Cannock Chase.
Today was a majestic performance. With last nights victory putting us in the zone we continued in the same vein. Playing on a full 9v9 pitch allowed us time and space to play the free flowing football we are undoubtedly capable off;

3-0 Fin Brown and Will Allen combine to put in Olly Edwards on the left hand side of the box to stroke the ball across the keeper - great goal!
