Romsey Boy’s (U14) 8
On a wet morning, the U14 Romsey Boy’s made an outstanding start to the new season. With 80% possession throughout the whole game, the boys shone brightly even if the morning weather resembled more of a wintery wet feel.
Romsey dominated from the outset with and early goal from a Jack M. following a superb through ball from Jack S. Romsey continued to dominate and the goals flowed, Jack M. scoring number 2 quickly followed with firm strikes from the edge of the D from Will and Jack S. It continued to be an exciting and quick-paced game. There was no stopping the boys in yellow and blue with all members of the team pulling together in what was an excellent display of teamwork and communication. Romsey continued to create chances with new members Oliver, Toby and Daniel in control supported well by Freddie. Another fantastic strike from Owen made it number 5. Southampton tried to turn the game towards them but Daniel, Jack J. and Lorne held them off. The Romsey goalkeeper, Joe stood solid with some excellent saves, although his skills were not fully on show as most of the play was at the Southampton goal end.
The second half started with as much energy on show from Romsey with an excellent goal from Harry created by a clever dribble and a neat cross by Lorne bringing the score to 6-1. Rupert raced into the D and neatly slotted the ball into the bottom left corner. Romsey continued to have several excellent chances before they finally got the rewards they deserved, first with another excellent goal from Lorne quickly followed by a superb finish from Will.
This was an outstanding display from Romsey with every player being fully involved and invested in a superb and entertaining effort. Lots of hope for the season ahead.
