Akeley Wood School U11 Football Triangular

Our colts travelled to Akeley Wood to play a local triangular against both our hosts and Broughton Manor. The boys were fired up for it and determined to come away with good results.

We started against Broughton Manor and dominated the game, pressing high up the pitch not allowing Broughton to clear their lines or progress up the pitch. Elijah Martey seemed on a mission to score and after a few near misses he found the bottom corner from the edge of the box with a lovely strike.

We comfortably saw the game out for a solid and impressive 1-0 win.

We were keen to leave with two wins but knew it wouldn’t be easy against a strong Akeley Wood team. We were in a battle from the off and neither team could get their foot on the ball and control the game. A few half chances for both teams came and went and it wasn’t until Akeley Wood were awarded a penalty that a clear cut chance was presented. Daniel Jemeljanenko did superbly to save the resulting penalty but unfortunately got no help from his teammates clearing the ball and Akeley Wood tapped in the rebound. Sadly a minute of madness and poor play cost us the match in what was otherwise another strong performance.
