Soccer U11 A VII vs Prettygate
Holmwood 0 Prettygate 3
Holmwood played their annual match against Prettygate. The visitors always send a strong team made up of boys that play regularly outside of school.
Holmwood took an early lead thanks to a shot from Harry O that was half blocked but still manage to trickle over the line. The boys found the passing and movement of the Prettygate boys hard to defend against. Henry D worked tirelessly in centre midfield as did Edward S on the left. Sam F and William T defended for the lives but could not prevent Prettygate taking a lead into half time.
Holmwood pulled a goal back in the second half after a low cross from Henry D smashed into a Prettygate defender and rebounded in at the near post. Prettgate added another couple of goal in the second half to eventually finish as 5-2 victors.
Final Score: Holmwood 2 Prettygate 5

The parents enjoyed an entertaining match where both sides played some attractive passing football, Prettygate created the most chances, and their best player scored two goals.
