Soccer - U8 A VII vs Colchester High School (H), Wednesday 1 October 2014

Holmwood's Year 3 boys played their first ever sports fixture against Colchester High.  Holmwood looked organised and all of the boys kept their positions well, particularly James B and Jude S in defence.  Colchester High took the lead with a quick counter-attack.  Holmwood's response was swift.  Goals came from Edward S (2), Jack E (2), Angus M (2) and Henry M.  Holmwood rotated positions to allow some of the boys the chance to experience playing in different positions.  Well done boys, a good first performance.

Result:  Holmwood 7 - 1 Colchester High

Soccer - U8 B VII vs Colchester High School (H), Wednesday 1 October 2014

A great spirited first game for the B team.  Harry RL opened the scoring with a great individual run from his own half to find the top corner.  The parent supporters erupted with a great cheer - 1-0 to Holmwood!  Colchester high struggled to get the ball out of their half with credit to Holmwood's players.  Next to score an individual goal was Toby F (to more applause!).  At half-time, Holmwood were 3-0 up.

The second half was played in the same vein with more Holmwood goals and great effort from all the players.  Well done boys, a great victory.

Result:  Holmwood 5 - 0 Colchester High  

October 1st 2014 was the date that the Holmwood boys played their first match.  Holmwood House won 5-0.
I played keeper in the match but got swapped for a left winger and at half-time it was 4-0. 
I really enjoyed it!

Soccer - U8 C VII vs Colchester High School (H), Wednesday 1 October 2014

The U8 C team had an amazing game.  Every player tried incredibly hard and had enormous fun.  Jesse D scored the only goal of the match with such an exciting dribbling 20 yards to beat the goalie.  Rafa K and Gabriel SF both got stuck in and tackled very effectively.  Britton F and Flynn P both tackled and passed the ball powerfully upfield.  Sam M and Richard H both played well in goal.  Luca defended very cunningly and cleared the ball to great effect.  Harry H was fantastic all over the pitch and great in goal.  An amazing first game - well done!

Result:  Holmwood 1 - 0 Colchester High

I was left midfielder.  We won 1-0.
