First game and first win for the U7’s, everyone played well and some incredible play from all the players and some great goals scored

A great performance and result for the U8s on Saturday. Playing away to local rivals Cougars, we played some fantastic passing football and some brilliant goals were scored by Raffy, Sonny, Jack and Fin. Hares came out well on top.

It was the seventeenth of September a cool day, with no breeze, ideal for a game of footy. Today the U11’s Hares team met Letchworth for a football duel. The game started with great pace, both teams keen to be triumphant. Some great passing, and a break away run, saw Seth Holleyman score in the bottom left hand corner. Play continued, but not for long, as Seth saw a chance to skill the keeper for his second goal of the game. Letchworth were ready to resume battle but our defense Nathan Tye, Luke Rannow and Mike Cannell remained defiant. A great tackle by Alfie Astle, got the ball to the area. Both teams fought for possession, but William Davey wanted it more, and knew exactly where to put it. The game resumed with great saves from Miles, and some good attempts at goal from Sammy Daniels, Seth Holleyman, William Davey and Jasper Baines. A great tackle from Harry Bartlett, won the Hares the ball. He passed to Jasper Baines, who saw off the opposition, with a breakaway run. He did a fake shot to get through the defender, and finished by shooting it in the top left hand corner. William Davey saw an opportunity not to be missed, so he left the pack, ran the wing, and scored his second goal of the game. Well done boys, a strong game was won by all. A special mention goes out to Alfie Astle for man of the match, and Nathan Tye for the coach’s award. Much appreciation to Chris Tye, for his refereeing, Steve Holleyman for lines man duties, and our wonderful coach Phil Baines.

The U12’s faced a very tough game away to St Albans in the County Cup. A good start saw The Hares go 1-0 up thanks to George Clark’s second goal in as many games. The home side however managed to pull a goal back just before the break to go in 1-1 at half time. A string of unfortunate events hit The Hares in the second half with 3 own goals conceded in quick concession. Another well worked goal by the home side made the final score 5-1. Although the boys were down at the final whistle it was a great team performance, against a good St Albans team.
