South Park Jets U11 v Albury Youth U11 Saturday 14 October
Back to Whitehall Lane this morning for an early kick off against Albury Youth FC. Albury pressed us hard and played some good football, bringing some great saves from Sam. This was definitely not our lucky day... unfortunate injuries to Bobby, Tommy and Sam meant our game was interrupted just when we were getting going and looking threatening. . Still, the Jets battled on and there were chances, especially when the boys found some composure and got their passing game going. Time was almost up, when a free kick was won just inside the opposition half... Up stepped Carter to claim the ball and he set his sights ambitiously on goal. A three-step run up and clean strike meant the ball flew over the wall, dipping over the Albury keeper and into the roof of the net. Cue some great celebrations at the end. A candidate for goal of the season already!
A short break from matches over half term now, and then we'll look to re-group and build on what has been an encouraging start to the season.
