On Wednesday the 21st of November, 11 year 6s played a football match at home vs Disraeli school. The boys did really well. Luca led the team as captain who was really positive. The line up for the Manor Farm team was James H in goal with Luca A and Max D in defence and Leo DS in the middle of midfeild with Jamari on the right and Max F on the left with the main man Louis R up front. The game started and Manor Farm were all over Disraeli and could have been winning, but we didn’t take our chances. Then Disraeli had an attack. Max D didn’t get the tackle in so Luca swept up with a sliding tackle to save the danger. Then the whistle blew for half time, Manor Farm 0-0 Disraeli. Jamari came off for Ollie C, Max F came off for Tom K and Leo DS went in defence. Simon came on for Max D in the midfield position and lastly James H came of for Arthur in goal. Manor farm were attacking Disraeli when the chance came and Louis R was in the box and Ollie C crossed it to him and Louis pelted it into the net. Manor Farm 1-0 Disraeli. Manor Farm got a corner but we didn’t have an attacker to take it as Jamari was sub, so Luca took it and got the cross in on Louis head but the goalie saved it and threw the ball long and the player skilled up Max on a 1v1 situation for Arthur so he came out to get it and before he knew it the Disraeli player passed it to his teammate who shot at an open goal and scored. Manor Farm 1-1 Disraeli . There was 5 minutes to go and Jamari came on for Louis R. And then Luca, the captain, was winning every tackle and being positive and encouraging to his teammates and then the ball dropped to Disraeli who were on an attack, and they got past Max but Luca got there in time to tackle the player and do a high ball over all off Disraeli’s players to Ollie where Ollie crossed it in to Jamari who had a shot which went straight into the bulging back off the net. Manor Farm 2-1 Disraeli . But that was not the end, Disraeli were on an attack and Leo got the tackle in and passed to Simon to Tom K to Jamari who got tackled and Disraeli were 1v1 with Arthur, who came out to save it, but before you knew it Luca came running in with a slide tackle to save the goal and then the whistle went for the end of the match Manor farm 2-1 Disraeli. Mr Green spoke to us and said to Luca that he’s a good captain. Then Mr Green gave man of the match to either Luca, Max D or Ollie C, but Max D and Luca gave it to Ollie for his amazing performance and compared Ollie to Gareth Bale.
End score manor farm 2-1 Disraeli.
