Under 10 Match Report by Victoria
The first match of our new league season kicked off at 10am on a sunny and warm morning – summer had arrived at last!

The teams looked quite evenly matched in the first half, although the Brooklands keeper, who had more to do, was on top form and pulled off a couple of good saves and also showed good awareness and bravery. When we finally did beat him, a defender had sense to cover back and head off the line! Brooklands had their moments too, and James Holden had to be alert in the Bergholt goal to sweep up with some good kicked clearances both inside and outside his box. It was equal at half time with both teams having some good shots and some hasty clearances off the line.

James Hirst and Luke Bloomfield were introduced at the start of the second half and this seemed to perk up our attacking options. James went just wide with a neat turn and shot and Luke was causing the Brooklands defence problems with his close control, but still their keeper looked comfortable and was blocking all goal-bound efforts. At the other end the Bergholt defence looked more and more comfortable as the game wore on. With around 5 minutes of the match remaining and just when it looked like the game would end 0-0, Gianni Sabini swung in a corner from the left and Luke Bloomfield reacted quickly at the near post to touch the ball into the net. Despite a concerted effort by Brooklands to get back on terms in the last few minutes, our goal was rarely troubled thanks to some sensible defending with all the boys doing their bit to close down the
