The boys played two short matches of 7-a-side outdoors on the astro against Merchiston in a home fixture. The team played with great heart and sense of fun and over the matches were victorious with the first match won by 4-2 and the second an exciting 2-2 draw. The quality of football improved as the afternoon went on and there were some positive passages of play when the ball was pinged around accurately from defence to attack.
In goal, Leo was brave, made some great saves and distributed the ball well from the back after a shaky start! Finn was very strong in defence and was ably partnered by Finlay, Jack and Austin. In midfield, Edward was skilled and tireless and was instrumental in linking the defence and attack. Mungo was tenacious, enjoyed his time on the wing and Oliver and Luca were busy upfront scoring some pleasing goals after silky moves. Quin was outstanding for the two matches and his skill level and pace of play made him easily the best player on show from both sides. Well done.
