Match Report NMJFC U8s - 24th Feb 24

Today the U8’s were up against Inter Cheadle West in the Stockport Metro League.

The sun was shining on a frosty morning and the boys were hoping for a good result. We had played Inter Cheadle West few times last year, but had not played them this campaign.

New Mills were short on numbers for today’s match with just 5 players available, meaning no subs.

We started with James in goal, Charlie T in defence, Rhys and Teddy in Midfield and Charlie J as striker.

Our team talk was mainly around using our heads today, and conserving energy, it was going to be a tough game with few stops.

The boys started well, defending as a group and building a few attacks of their own.

Inter Cheadle started to build and soon we were in the back foot and needed to try something different. Rhys dropped back to defence and Charlie T onto the left, which improved things no end. Rhys getting them crunching tackles in and Charlie T being able to cause trouble on the left playing in balls to Charlie J.

Charlie J and Teddy both close to getting goals on a couple of occasions.

The boys worked so hard today and did not once complain, working up until the final whistle. We couldn't be prouder !

Player of the match was awarded to James today. He had a great game, saving many shots from long and short range, inspired by the cheering parents behind, he only got better and better as the game went on.

Well done NMJU8’s !
