We took twelve boys to Fettes this afternoon to play against Fettes and Belhaven teams in a small tournament. Our individual squads were split into two mixed teams of six (Team 1 & 2), who would play against each of the other teams in short matches. As I was umpiring one of the two pitches, I was not able to watch every Cargilfield match. However, from what I saw I was pleased with the tackling, which we had been working on in training this week, and the skills and control of the ball that we displayed. This allowed us to give strong performances against the opposing schools and score quite a few goals. The areas that we need to work in the next few weeks are our communication as a team and making sure that we stick to our positions to stretch the game rather than making it constricted with everyone going for the same ball; we gave away a couple of goals because of this.
Team 2 came out as winners of the tournament.
Well done, boys!
