Cougars U10s Blues vs Stevenage Borough, Saturday 16th February, Away

Deane, Ivison, Tallis, Tanner, Hennessy, Laws-Randall, Scott, Flanagan, Wick

A friendly match on a beautiful pitch over in Stevenage and a tough tactical battle as the team get ready to go to 9-a-side next season.

The midfield of Laws-Randall and Flanagan had to work really hard and Wick, Hennessy and Tanner were kept busy across the back line. As they settled into the game Scott had an effort from 20 yards drop inches wide and Laws-Randall tested the keeper. Tanner had the confidence to pull the double drag back out of the bag at one point as the first half wound up with the wide players starting to get more time on the ball.

In the second half it was just a lack of finishing that let the team down. Tanner was unlucky with a shot saved by the keepers boot and Ivison poked a shot past the keeper but also just past the post. In the last 5 Deane skipped past his defender and picked out Tanner but the keeper saved low and Ivison could only hit the side netting with the rebound. Tallis had a strong game in goal with a few critical saves.

Man of the match for Laws-Randall for an all action midfield performance. Well played both teams.

Cougars U7s Blues vs FC LAFA, Saturday 16th February, Away

Deane, Sampson, Loxton, Williamson, Whay, Tidy

A mild February morning for a match up with local rivals LAFA. Their three games this season have been close battles and today was no different.

Chances at a premium in the first quarter with Williamson having a shot saved and Sampson desperately unlucky twice with a strike thumping off the post and another clipping the outside of the upright. Deane saw plenty of action but was up to the job with great handling and good distribution and Tidy was rock-like at the back.

Into the second quarter and the Blues hit their stride. Williamson was on the score sheet with a nice left foot strike from a Sampson cross. Whay was unlucky with a couple chances and at the other end a Deane wonder save kept LAFA at bay. Some lovely passing interplay then saw Williamson and Whay tee up Sampson whose 25 yard evaded the keeper and nestled in the net.

Loxton in goal for the third and started off with a couple cracking saves. From one of his clearances Deane picked it up just inside his own half, belted down the pitch and finished with aplomb! The quarter was rounded off with a couple more Loxton saves - revelling in his new role.

Into the last quarter and Deane with a second solo goal. Again running from his own half and tucking it past the keeper. Then a hattrick after excellent work from Whay and still time for another as Deane chipped past an outrushing keeper for his fourth. It was tireless running from the whole team with Tidy, Whay and Sampson producing an excellent defensive display. And Loxton was a revelation in goal with several television saves!

Excellent team performance. Well played both teams.
