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

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.
