On what was a bitterly cold afternoon at Merchiston, our two teams played two matches each:
U9 Wolves - beat Merchiston U9s and Fettes U9s
U9 Tigers - lost to Merchiston U10s and beat Fettes U9s
Playing on astro and on a larger space meant the boys could pass the ball better and move in to space, and I was impressed with the teamwork and skills on show from all the boys who played today. We were much more skilful and determined than the other three U9 teams from Fettes and Merchiston, and it was only when we played a bigger and more aggressive U10 team from Merchiston that we struggled a little bit, although had opportunities to score. It was a good test though for all the players and the delicious match tea afterwards was the perfect end to a super afternoon of hockey. Well done, everyone!
