Boys U11’s Tournament Sunday 11th Jan Monday, January 12, 2009Posted by mrfolds in Badgers, Cheltenham Hockey, Juniors, Match Report, mens badgers.
The boys put up a great effort at the monthly tournament, a much improved performance from the previous month. On the whole the teams we played were stronger than previously and this is reflected in the results. There was much more committment on the pitch and better team play. We only lacked a bit of fitness after the long Christmas break. Rory Murfitt ran his socks off with some great marking and tackling, as well as some hard hitting to clear the ball out of defence. Matthew Holdaway made numerous outstanding saves giving a fine display in goal. Ollie Palmer, Revie Wood & Harry Godwin worked really hard in midfield, linking well and creating many good attacking moves. In defence Ben Davis made important goal line clearances with his positional play being spot on. Jeremy Fox was everywhere, as usual putting many very strong tackles. Will Tucker again showed lots of energy working hard in midfield and defence with some great tackling. Finally up front Sam Privett capped a good display with two well taken goals. The results were;
v Lydney Won 1 -0 (Harry Godwin)
v Marlborough Drew 0-0
v Cirencester Lost 2-1 (Sam Privett)
v Cheltenham Lost 1-0
v Yate Lost 2-1 (Sam Privett)
