U10 Red record first win away at Renishaw

Posted by admin on October 8, 2013

A bright sunny morning greeted the Spartans away to Renishaw Rangers. With a bigger pitch than the boys were used to playing on and a surface that sloped to one side, the Spartans kicked-off to get the first half underway on wet and greasy grass.

The Spartans started with some high intensity pressure as instructed by Ali and John. The early pressure paid off seeing Logan H score the opening goal from a Logan P assist, working well down the right hand side of midfield. 0-1 to the Spartans. The Spartans continued with the pressure working well in the final third of the field to get some shots away as the boys had been asked to do. Morgan was putting in a great shift in the centre of midfield, joining in the attacks and standing solid in defence when needed. Jack B in the net made a brilliant save springing to his right like a pouncing cat, on a rare occasion that saw Renishaw manage to get a shot away.
What came next was a brilliant solo goal, sheer determination and effort from Logan H saw him work the ball through the Renishaw defence and score for his second of the game, 0-2 to the Spartans.

Rio replaced Logan P down the right hand side of midfield and worked well to get himself into space before firing a good cross into the danger area, there waiting to pounce was Matt who had got himself into a good position to stab the ball home for his maiden goal with the Spartans, 0-3 with the foot never coming off the pedal of the Spartans pressure machine...
Matt soon applied some more pressure on the Renishaw defence, which resulted in Dale getting onto the score sheet, 0-4 to the Spartans.
The half time whistle saw the boys coming in 0-4 up with Logan H having scored the first two, Matt scoring the third and Dale scoring the fourth.
Renishaw kicked-off to get the second half underway. Early pressure from the Spartans made sure all the action took place in the Renishaw Rangers half with JB having little to do in goal. Rio replaced William in defence to give him a rest and he played really well in defence, getting in some great tackles with the Renishaw players unable to get past him.

A corner to the Spartans saw an attempted clearance by Renishaw fall to the feet of JD who unleashes a rifled shot into the Renishaw goal making it 0-5 with the defenders now wanting some of the action!

JD came off for a rest to be replaced by William. Shortly after Renishaw managed to break but William and Rio in defence stayed solid and were equal to it, quashing the threat. The Spartans reply by stepping up the pressure again and getting 2 corners in a row, some good pressure from the second  corner sees William get free with the ball finding space in the box to fire in a good cross towards the back post. Morgan had positioned himself well near the back post and stabbed the ball into the Renishaw net to make it 0-6 to the Spartans.

Logan P who had worked really well down the right hand side of midfield put in a great ball from the right to Morgan who is on the near post and stabs in his second goal of the game and the Spartans 7th, 0-7 to the Spartans.

The final whistle sees the Spartans come in for their first win of the season and the boys did it in some style winning 0-7 but more important than the score line is the work ethic the boys showed, with some good passing building up from the back and getting it out to the wings from where some good crosses were put in.

The job of deciding the team player of the match was a really hard one this week with each and every one of the boys in contention for it, it was whittled down to four candidates from which two were decided upon -  Logan H and Logan P, there was nothing between these two apart from the fact that Logan H had scored two great goals. It was decided that Logan P would be awarded the trophy for his tireless efforts down the right hand side of midfield.

A good result and a morale boosting first win for the boys, spectators and management that had been too long in coming! For once the tide was with the boys instead of against them and they were on the right side of the 7-0 score line and deservedly so, UTS!!!!
