Romsey U10’s entered 2 teams in to the Southampton mini festival last Sunday.

The team players were; Charlie, Eleanor, Jack M, Luke, Issy, Thomas D, Livs, Will, Molly, Freddie, Lucy H, Matthew, Thomas N, Jack S.

In their first match Romsey A played against Trojans B, Romsey A were slow to start and found it difficult to create space and move the ball around. It took some staunch defending, especially from Freddie and Lucy, to keep the scoreline down to a 0-1 defeat. In their second match the team played much better, Will and Matthew linked well through the midfield and the team held Salisbury B to a goalless draw. In their next game, Romsey dominated, producing some fine passing hockey. A lovely cross from Luke set Thomas Norman up for a well taken goal, and Jack Sluman also scored from a beautiful strike on the edge of the D, giving the team their first win 2-0. Against Bournemouth B, the team battled hard in another 0-0 draw with Molly proving her adaptability by taking on a midfield role and Matthew moving back into defence. The final match against Winchester C saw a well balanced game with both teams playing some nice hockey. Jack Meehan proved calm in the D taking a well earned goal from a strong cross by Jack Sluman. The final 1-1 result was a fair reflection of the game. Overall the team played well, working hard for each other and improving as the tournament progressed.

Team B should be immensely proud of their efforts and performance against some very strong opposition. Livs and Issy were solid in defence and endeavoured to pass the ball wide to spread the play.
Thomas D showed great one on one skill to block and clear the ball from the top of the ‘D’. Eleanor, Luke and Charlie worked well together in Midfield. Charlie battled tirelessly to get through the oppositions defence and was rewarded by 3 goals.
Some slick passing between Charlie, Luke and Jack resulted in Jack and Luke both ending the day with 2 goals each.

Both teams had great tournament.
