Match report NMJFC Under 8s Falcons- 21/11/21

The Falcons faced Glossop NE U8 Reds at Glossopdale this morning.

With 3 of the Falcons absent with illness, they called on the support from Archie and Oliver from the NMJU8 Eagles to ensure they had sufficient cover in what was a cold but sunny morning.

The Falcons started the game well. Keeping their positions well and making the opposition work hard for time on the ball. It was a tough first half, against a very well drilled opposition

who knew exactly what they needed to do.

With changes made for the second half and the Falcons getting used to playing with a couple of the Eagles, they started to create more chances and the game became very even. The Falcons got their reward with an outstanding goal from Poppy ⚽️ who was a constant threat the whole game.

Special mention to today’s captain Henry, who continues to grow and gain confidence in the role of our main defender each week, with some excellent tackles and passes forward to our attacking players.

Huge thank you to Archie and Oliver from the U8 Eagles for their support today - they were both excellent and both contributed to a fantastic game.
