A depleted but motivated U10s squad arrived at Trojans ready to do battle in the cold winds. With players short both Romsey teams had to share a goalkeeper. A massive well done to Sophie and her caddy (mum) who had to shuffle from pitch to pitch with no respite! Romsey 2 even had to scroungeplayers from Romsey 1 just to keep the show on the road. On the bright side, with no substitutes everybody was able to fully participate and keep warm!
Adaptability and team spirit were the themes of the day with everyone showing the ability to play across the park from defence to attack. Despite the constant rotation of positions and players, Romsey 2 delivered a very creditable 16 goals scored to just 4 conceded. 4 wins, 2 draws and just 1 (shockingly contentious) loss.
Special thanks to Zach, Oscar, Caitlin and Elsie for all coming across from Romsey 1 to make great contributions and score vital goals. From Romsey 2s own team Henry and Camilla proved to be the most clinical in front of goal, netting 4 goals each and being part of some great link up play. Imogen and Maya were stalwarts throughout, always tenacious in the tackle and showing great desire to be first to the ball while Anna S really found her mojo in this tournament.
Romsey 1 played excellent hockey comfortably winning all seven matches scoring twenty goals and not conceding any! Caitlin was top striker followed by Oscar with Zach and Elsie also adding to the goal tally. Most of the play took place in the opposition’s half so children were rotated around positions to ensure they all got a piece of the action. Bournemouth 1 was our strongest competition but Romsey 1 managed to win this 2-0. Well done to Evie, Anna, Elsie, Zach, Caitlin and Oscar.
Well done to all. A great team performance!
