Match report New Silksworth Junior school v St Benets - First half - We started off slowly and went one goal behind but we were Not to be beaten as we just got our heads up and got on with it and got the Deserved Equaliser with our play through Bryson And from here on in we played some Excellent attacking football. We went ahead with a goal from Aran, then we went further ahead with a deserved goal for the battling Daniel to make it 3-1 but we conceded another to make it 3-2. Then from this we kicked on second-half and took control of the game and we went 4-2 ahead with a Brilliant goal from just past the half- way line scored by Louis which flew into the top corner and left the keeper with No chance ( David Beckham would have been proud of this strike!) , St Benets did have a couple more chances towards the end of the game but our Top Cat keeper Harry made two Excellent saves to keep the score at 4-2. We broke away just before the end of the game and Bryson used his strength to battle his way through to get his second goal of the game to give New Silksworth a Brilliant 5-2 Win in their First game at 9 v 9 for our school! Onwards and upwards. Come on Silky!!!! Also I must give a special mention to Callum who got a well deserved Man of the Match for a Great game at Right back! - Mr Stewart.
