Sillhill v Colron Yellow
The team travelled away to Solihull, and the parents were happy for a 2pm kick off after a team building night at the bonfire night at Eldon Drive went on a little longer than anticipated!
The gaffer was more worried about his players being out so late and how they would play, this was soon squashed after an early Ruben penalty and a trademark Charlie free kick putting them 2 up after 5 minutes.
Sillhill battled and caught the Yellows on the break, Henry’s and Zaine’s non-stop running and passing soon set up Charlie’s second goal
Millie was thrown on upfront and was soon causing problems getting stuck in and chasing the ball down, Parker came in for Mason who had stopped everything in defence that had come at him, and the odd occasion that Sillhill got through Joe in goal dealt with safely.
Tommy was introduced into midfield and he was soon getting stuck in and threading some passes up to Millie.
Half time – and a few changes
Second half started brightly again and after a lovely pass across the box from Henry the ball was in the net for Charlie’s hat trick.
Zak in goal was called into action and smothered a shot, nothing was getting past him today!
Parker came on upfront and was soon doing his standard mazy runs and when the ball rolled across the box to him, he let loose, we all thought this was his moment, the ball looped over the keeper but hit back off the post!
Colron still on the front foot with Joe and Henry causing constant problems for Sillhill, an attack by Sillhill was cut out by Ruben who was now playing at the back, he stepped through and dribbled the ball and calmly dispatched Colron’s 5th and final goal.
A great team performance by all the players today.
And a special mention to Mason for his player of the match performance, disciplined and tough tacking today a very well deserved trophy for him.
