Match report NMJFC U9s Bees v Tintwistle U9s - 07/01/24

A rejig of the kick off times saw the Bees with a 2pm kick off today. We almost had a full team, but Leo who had been ill all week didn’t pass a late fitness test (believe me, he was gutted he couldn’t play)

We started with Stan ‘the man’ in goal, David and Rocco shoring up the defence, Millie, Brooke and Will across the midfield and CW7 upfront.

Very graciously Jordan stayed behind with Frankie C to give the Bees the option of a sub.

The game kicked off and it was a midfield battle from the word go, Brooke and Millie were getting stuck in and Will playing out on the right.  They were all seeing a lot of the ball. Will made some great runs down the right, some great tackles and passes 👍🏻

Tintwistle were beginning to edge it, so the Bees had to pull together. A great break from Millie saw her put the ball through to Charlie who couldn’t quite edge it past the keeper. The Bees were starting to click.  At the other end Stanley had his work cut out and made 2 double saves 👏🏻🙌🏻 quick reactions and clearing the ball upfield…. The words of ‘Awesome Stanley’ echoed around Glossopdale.

David and Rocco were making tackles and doing all they could to keep the attackers out of the box.

Millie had another great effort which didn’t quite find the was obvious she was on fire today.

Quick swap bringing Frankie on for David helped the Mini Millers stay solid. Frankie was reliable, there when needed and ensured the attackers didn’t get a clear sight on goal.

On the verge of half time…. Millie broke down the left, took on a defender and hit a shot….it went through one defenders legs (which confused the keeper) and into the goal ⚽️ !! 👍🏻

Half time team talk. More of the same Bees, get the passing game going.

As the 2nd half kicked off, we had Rocco and Frankie in defence (David would come back on shortly)  each time Rocco stopped an attack and if he could, he was looking for a forward pass.. solid play from our’Roc’ at the back.

Another great play from the Bees with Brooke tackling and winning the ball in midfield, passing through to Charlie, who ran further upfield and passed a great ball to Millie who made a fantastic run and shot, with the ball going over the keeper ⚽️  fantastic goal 👏🏻 brilliant team play…. That’s what we want, great passing 👍🏻  David came back on and was always looking to get involved, making some great tackles.

Throughout the second half, it was clear to see the players had listened to the coaches at half time.

The Bees should be proud of how they played today. Our player of the match was CW7 (Charlie) he listened and played some great passes for his teammates, he didn’t stop running 👍🏻
