League match against Milldene

We had our last league match today. It was going to be a really tough game and we had to either draw or win in order to win the league cup.

Unfortunately, it was not our day and we lost 2-0. The boys played really well together and fought incredibly hard. They were very disappointed but should be very proud of their performance as were Billy and I. Their passion, drive and determination were a pleasure to watch and it was just a shame that Milldene took advantage with a couple of good runs which resulted in goals. We saw some superb saves, great runs and shots on goal and a very solid defence. Well done to Jayden, Archie, Kai, Laurie, Bailey, Jaxson, Ailbe, Joel and George. A special mention to George who was named man of the match by the Milldene players.

The boys have had a great season and won 4 games and only lost one. They have been a pleasure to coach and manage.

Thank you to Billy for his amazing coaching and all the parents for their continued support and help with transport this year.

There were goals from Laurie x3 and Bailey x1 ( and almost a second as it hit the cross bar! ) Jayden was superb in goal and Archie, Kai and George made a very solid defence.

The extra sting to the tail was that the team who did win (Exeter City), we beat when we played them in our group. So, we are claiming that we were the best team there and deserved to have got through to Wembley!! We did get bronze medals though!

It was an amazing day and the boys were an absolute credit to the school and Colchester United. I am incredibly proud of them all. Every single one of them were outstanding and the sportsmanship was second to none.

We had goals from Sam, Rylan and Jack (2). Two of the games they didn't deserve to lose because they were indeed the better team, it was just one of those unlucky goals in the last minute! They played brilliantly together showing great team work and sportsmanship. Sam, Jack, Jacob, Henry and Ethan did some great runs up front and from midfield. Ella, Rylan, Bobby and Jonah were a very solid defence and Casey made some cracking saves. We came fifth overall. A very well done to them all.
