It was cup weekend for Colron Yellows, 2 shorter games against tough opposition.
First Match versus Hillfield
First up was Hillfield, a very tight first half ended in stalemate, Parker and Zaine solid at the back with Zac in goal stopping what got passed them, Charlie and Henry linking well going forward were both unlucky not to get on the score sheet.
Second half continued with end to end play but it was Hillfield who broke the deadlock, nothing Joe in goal could do. Ruben and Tommy did their best to push the team forward for an equaliser but Colron couldn’t get back level, Mille and mason were now our back 2 and they both continued to defend well but Hillfield manger to score another just before the end.
Second Match versus Boldmere
The second game was Boldmere, and the game followed as the first with end to end football but with stalemate at the half time whistle, Reuben coming closest hitting the post from a free kick, Joe in goal with some good stops and distribution, Parker with his normal solid tackling, and going forward Charlie and Henry were always causing trouble, both covering lots of the pitch and sticking to their tasks and positions well.
Boldmere began to push more and more forward at Colron and were rewarded with 2 quick goals, Tommy came close picking up a loose ball, his effort well saved. Zaine was into the mix collecting the ball well and linking with Reuben, Millie at the back got some well timed tackles in, and Mason in midfield broke up some of the Boldmere attacking play.
The game finished with a Boldmere goal with the last kick of the game.
Player of the Matches
Parker was voted player of the matches for his solid defensive display – well done Parker.
Words from the Gaffer
Although the team lost both games they played well. We were unlucky not to score in both games, we defended well and moved the ball forward quicker.
Quick mention to Zak M who had to finish his game early after a hand injury: some ice and rest and you will be fine.
