Community development officer and coach Lyndon Wain rounds up all the action from the club’s youth section across the weekend of the 6th/7th October.
A really busy and successful weekend for the young Dabbers with goals, loads of hat tricks, assists and football of a high order, with development and improvement individually and within the teams.
U8 greens were involved in a really tight game which was good for the boys, they came out on top but were properly tested. They had to defend and support each other, but big progress Adam well done.
Our U9 greens represented the club very well at the first team fixture on Saturday playing some great football on the main pitch after a tour and flag waving. On Sunday they put in an excellent performance scoring four without reply. Jensen and Reece put in excellent defensive displays and Finley scored two with David and Henry also on the mark. A really committed coaching team here well done Rob and Steve. What makes the team is that they are all friends too. The U9 yellows were excellent lifting their heads and playing excellent football. Sophie was man of the match for her overall performance and a cutting pass to Tristan to complete the scoring.
The U10s greens went goal crazy with a stunning performance. The goals were shared and William was man of the match and James scored his first EVER goal for the Dabbers, well done Rob. Meanwhile the U10 yellows ad a tough afternoon and suffered from playing out from the back. We will keep doing this. Well done Bodie, excellent at the back.
U11 greens were involved in a high quality 0-0 draw, showing excellent progress under Chris and Steve, going to be a top side and the U11 yellows win was so large that Matt and James were concerned for our opponents, this group will need bigger challenges but shows respect and they are playing great football.
U12 greens completely dominated their game away at Madeley with Dan Phillipson scoring an excellent hat trick. The U12s yellows are are making great strides and were complimented on there performance by their opponents, good progress here well done Keith and his team.
Our U12 whites are also making strides, Jack made some brilliant saves and the defence were tireless in their work. Ollie was man of the match for his tackling although Calum P had an excellent game. Oscar and Hugh are now settling into the team too.
The U13s reaped the rewards for an excellent approach to training with a brilliant win in the Cheshire Cup, a turning point in the season we believe, while our U14s had a thumping win win with all seven goals coming from different players – amazing Chris – total football. Well done Finn and Tyler- the standouts in an excellent overall performance.
The U15s continue to go from strength to strength with a positive outcome against Cheadle. Callum scored a hat trick in 23 minutes before a Cheadle fightback with Freddie on top form in goal with a top save from his own player! The game was secured by goals from Callum and Fin. Well done Chris excellent job.
