Match report NMJFC Under 8s Hawks - 09/01/22

NMJFC U8 Hawks v Hayfield

First game of 2022 for the U8 Hawks against Hayfield in the High Peak Junior Football league.

A New Year and a new test for the Hawks saw us move up into Group A for the second half of the season, which meant more evenly matched opposition as teams are grouped based on similar performances and results.

This couldn’t have been truer, as the game was a close and thrilling encounter to start the year with a bang.

Lots of end to end play with both goalkeepers having no choice but to stay lively - Shea making some excellent stops for The Millers in the first half. Hayfield saw lots of the ball to start with but The Hawks kept on applying pressure forcing Hayfield into making mistakes.

We switched keepers for the second half and Kian took the number 1 jersey - also racking up some fine saves to keep the game close.

Excellent performance from the whole team today including 3 superb goals from Leo ⚽️⚽️⚽️ and some fantastic defensive work on display from Liam ‘The Brick Wall’ Smith earned him the Man of the Match trophy 🏆

Well done Hawks, what a start! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
