Brackley Town U11s - 2 

Banbury Town U11s - 2  

Saturday 10th November   

Both teams made a great start to the game and was back and forth for the first 10 mins, 

 

Moreton Rangers v Brackley Town (u12) 03/11/18 

A 3-0 away win to a A league team, we should be happy. And yet we all knew at the final whistle we weren’t at our best. Our quality showed early on as we were 2-0 up within 12 minutes and credit where credit is due they didn’t have a single clear chance for the rest of the game, and I must admit in the second half their keeper had an absolute blinder (I feel like the past few matches I’ve coached this side I’m always congratulating their keeper on a great performance at the end…) 

Where we must improve is in our counter attacking, we broke numerous times and seemed to run out of ideas when in the final 1/3 if we didn’t break through, but the match should be remembered for Finch waltzing through their defence twice to score and Dooley hitting a peach into the top corner from range. 

A special mention should also go to 2 great, yet very different, leaders. Dooley was the matchday captain and led with his actions whilst Alexander drove the team onwards whilst on and off the pitch

Goals: Finch (2), Dooley 

Assists: Finch, Dooley, Alexander

Brackley Town Juniors v Bloxham U7’s (10/11/2018)

 After going a goal down in the first minute, Brackley quickly got into their stride and led at half-time with Harry scoring two very nicely taken goals.  Throughout the second half Brackley continued to dominate and Mason and Oliver added more goals to give Brackley a well deserved victory.  Coach Mark said “the whole squad were excellent today and we also went on to win the following friendly with Oliver, Jacob, Harry and Jasper all scoring.  Our teamwork and positional play was excellent today with Roary and Rupert deserving a special mention.”

 

 

  

 

Banbury United v Brackley Town Development U7’s (10/11/2018) 

Brackley started the game quickly winning a series of early corners which had Banbury pinned back in their goalmouth.  Early pressure led to an early goal from Ellis scoring a tap-in, then came a lovely solo goal by Finn quickly followed by a goal from Ryley and by half time Brackley were in the lead. The second half wasn’t so one-sided but Brackley did score again and won the match overall.   Coach Chris said “the boys all worked so well together and complemented each others play very nicely. Their awareness of their positioning is great to see.  The whole squad: Ellis, Ryley, James, Nathan, Thomas and our two new players Harrison and William C along with Finn who especially created a lot of chances for others with his unselfish play, have a great attitude to the game.   Banbury United went on to win the friendly match that followed.”
