Holmwood played their first match this half term against The Abbey.
Holmwood started very well and Chris T scored inside the first 5 minutes. Sam F came in from the As to help in Rufus C's absence and put a great performance in the centre of midfield and in goal. Captain William T, the rock at the heart of defence with the William W, kept the Abbey at bay during the first half. Holmwood's second goal came from some great work by Louis L on the left setting up Sam F to tap home.Holmwood came in at half time winning 2-0.
The second half started with Hector B-P out of goal and on the left hand side. It was not long until he was terrorising the Abbey's defence. The passing from Holmwood was improving as the game progressed. Gus A came close to scoring but was denied by Abbey GK. The last three goals came from Chris T x2 and a screamer just out side the box from William W. Well played boys nice to see all your hard work in training coming together.
Holmwood’s first game in four weeks was a resounding victory over The Abbey. Ned N scored 4 with Harry O and James P completing the scoring. The boys swapped positions on a regular basis to allow them to experience playing in different areas of the pitch. Patrick A who played most off the match on pitch was desperate to score but could not quite manage it.
We look forward to the tournament next Monday at Littlegarth.
