This week the u10s played at home against another different team in the EKYFL winter B group, TSS Youth. The u10s remembered facing this team in a summer tournament semi final penalty shoot out nearly 2 years ago (we won and went through to the final!), so were hopeful for another win.
This turned out to be a good game with both keepers pulling off some great saves - well done to our heroic Thomas in goal! Jake scored Whitstable's first goal just before half time, finding himself in some space with the ball and deftly putting it past the keeper. The second half saw Whitstable playing some nice football with 2 further goals being added to their tally within 3 minutes of each other by Ollie Cl.
Joe and Rhys put in a solid performance in defence, but Player of the Match went to Josh for a superb performance playing the first half of the game out of position in midfield and then back on defensive duties in the second half.
It was good to see the Whitstable players trying to put into practice things we have been learning at training eg pressing more and playing out from the back. However lots more work needs to be done, especially playing out from the back which is to be entrenched in the club's playing ethos and hopefully the players' hard work in these areas will show through in their play.
Now looking forward to facing Woodchurch Warriors at home next Saturday (30 March).
