Year 5 and 6 Football


St Matthew’s 2-0 Bramingham 

The Year 5 and 6 boys kicked off the start of the 2015 season with a very convincing 2-0 victory over Bramingham Primary School.

Qualifying for Division 1, the boys knew that every game would be a tough match and would need 100% from everybody. The boys started the game strongly, with lots of passing and moving from the back to the front from Addam, Theo, Cory and Dimitrius. At the back, our solid defence, consisting of Addam, Theo and Lemar, continuously intercepted passes as well as making crucial tackles to allow St Matthew’s to go on the break.

With Arnis making darting runs upfront, he left space behind for Shakeel to take on a defender where he then took a shot from 20 yards out, hitting the cross bar and bouncing on the line. Dimitrius coolly followed up the shot and poked it home. (Goal line technology will be needed to determine who actually scored this goal).

Josh was having a great game on the left wing, battling away and creating chances for our midfield players Dimitrius and Shakeel. Meanwhile, Bramingham were shooting from left, right and centre where Aman was pulling off save after save keeping a clean sheet for the boys. Tyreece, making his debut for the St Matthew’s football team came on upfront, putting loads of pressure on the Bramingham defence. He knocked the ball to Shakeel, who then ran towards goal. Tyreece, heading towards the back post called for the ball to then slot home his first St Matthew’s goal making the score 2-0.

Everyone who played in this game from defence to attack put 100% in with great positive attitudes and determination. The boys knew that qualifying for Division 1 would be a tough job.

A Man of the Match performance came from Shakeel, who led the team with great encouragement and positivity as well as his footballing skills.

Team: Addam, Aman, Arnis, Cory, Dimitrius, Josh, Lemar, Shakeel (C), Theo, Tyreece
