Well what can I say….the long awaited match of A vs B. And with 2 A team members (Charlie and Tim) making guest appearances with the U16 B team playing a vital cup match at Ashton – how would things pan out?
It was great to be watching the B team and see how much they have progressed since we split the squad into A and B teams almost 2 months ago……..and sure enough as if to prove a point, B team scored first – a great opener from Simon Briggs.
The first quarter showed an enthusiastic B team and a dis-jointed A team, however the A team pulled a couple back (Lucas and Nathan). And ater a stern team talk at first interval, the A team cranked into action and picked up 4 more in the second quarter (Joe / James H / Harry and Alex).
Some good saves from both James S for the A team and Adam L for the B team were noted.
B team picked up 2 further goals in the 3rd quarter (Simon and Harry) but the A team were on a roll now and further goals from Alex Winton (too many to count) and a great run from Josh P all the way up the field resulting in a sneaky goal finished the story of this quarter – with the formal score ending at 10 – 3 win to the A team.
It wouldn’t be right to finish the report without mentioning the 2 coaches – James & Tim who have developed 2 very able teams and I think we are going into the cup rounds in January with 2 teams to be proud of……as long as the squad keeps up the training, learn from the coaches and keep the practise up over the Xmas break!
Training as usual Wednesday night followed by the last match of the season on Saturday 19th:
Timperley A team at home to Sheffield
Timperley B team away at Heaton Mersey
