The Football team kicked off their season with a local friendly fixture against OASB (Oasis Academy South Bank) on Monday 27 September. This is the first time the two schools have met and it proved to be a rewarding exercise for all involved. I was impressed with how we played as a team considering the boys had only trained twice together and the team is made up of predominately new students. Our Captain Felix, showed great commitment in rushing back from a trip to support the team and get some brief match action in himself.
An excellent defensive display gave us a solid foundation to work from however, we didn’t manage to execute our chances created from the hard graft Finn G was putting in as our lone forward. The match was evenly contested and only the one own goal (in our favour) which came from a corner, separated the teams in this inaugural fixture.
Lots of positives to take away and we look forward to building this community link with OASB in the future.
