Great morning for the under 7s yesterday, playing against a much less experienced side from Ashwell. The boys passed well and showed great respect for their opponents albeit during a bit of a goal frenzy. As a parent we cannot be prouder than when they demonstrate true sportsmanship so well done boys. Special mention to Charlie Ra on his first goal for the club and to Liam T and Jack on MOTM. Keep up the good work boys.
Yesterday the under 8s played Bishops stortford u8, The Hares come out of the Christmas break raring to go and start 2018 but wow, you wouldn’t tell we haven’t played for nearly 5 weeks. They where all so good. Player of the match :- As we had 2 teams of 5 you thought it would be a good idea to have a player of the match for both so you lovely parents choose :- Thomas and Henry. Star players :- George and Betsy!!
Well done all.. See you all next week!
Hares youth Orange vs St. Neots.
Today our U11 Orange side played against St. Neots at home. From the start Hares moved the ball around and constantly put the away side on the back foot and were rewarded when Francis drilled home from distance. Going into the second half, the game started a little scrappy until Francis got his second of the game. A cool finish from Sam after some great one touch football from Toby, Brandon and Sam himself was straight of the training ground. New lad Charlie finished well from a tight angle in the closing stages. M.O.T.M today went to Francis not just for his double, but his all round workrate.
The U13’s travelled to Plantation Youth for a midday KO this week. With players missing, and against a team going well in the league The Hares knew they were in for a hard game. With the slope of the pitch against them in the first half the visitors found themselves under constant pressure, but were looking to keep Plantation out, at least until half time. Despite their efforts the home side finally found the net on 25mins to make it 1-0. 1-0 soon became 2-0 to Plantation a minute later, after the Hares’ defence switched off, and couldn’t clear a tame cross, or pick up any arriving players in the box. With the slope now in their favour The Hares were hoping for a better second half performance. Unfortunately it was not to be, as Plantation added another 2 goals to their tally to make the final score 4-0. Despite the scoreline, the game was actually closer that than the result suggested, and had The Hares converted some of their chances they could have come away from the game with something more positive. Man of The Match this week went to Sam Griffiths-Jones who was the stand out performer for The Hares.
After a few postponements Hares U15 finally played away against Royston in the County Cup. An early lead by Hares was soon equaled by Royston. Unfortunately 2 Garrod goals weren’t enough today as the Christmas break had taken its toll and they lost 3-2. Motm Harry
