Bromleians U18 Utd Match Report
Date : 26th September 2021
V Academix @ home, Result 3 - 1
A nice warm day greeted us at the John Cooper ground for out first home match of the season. With Dan ‘ The Godfather’ back and Che back form a school trip collecting rock and soil samples we had two subs this week. Max and OllyD still out injured.
Another fast start and we were 1-0 up within the first 10 minutes. Cam picked up the ball outside the box and rifled a right foot shot towards goal, the defender stuck out a foot and a slight deflection took it past the keeper.
Matt was taking both corners from either side. The opportunity came to try it out in the 20th minute. An out swinger, the players lined up on the edge of the box and took a run in as Matt swung the ball across, bang Ollie C connected with a blinding header and the net bulged as the ball rushed past the keeper.
A little lapse in concentration at the back and a a failed clearance led their striker to run between Ollie C and TGT to slot the ball past TomY.
A few pussy tackles followed and after Broms dominating, Academix came back on the front foot for the next 10 minutes.
Josh N then picked up a knock again and had to leave the pitch, earlier than planned substitution with Ryan L coming onto the pitch. Ryan showed some pace on the pitch until he too had to be substituted later in the second half.
Dylan replaced Zac in midfield and Josh cam back on to replace Ryan after he picked up a head injury.
At last in the second half Broms started to play the football that they can, a couple of near misses followed until Matt slotted in a typical goal from outside the box.
With a few minutes to go our trusted ‘striker’ Josh had a simple chance to make it 4-1, no comment.
So the score remained 3-1 and a welcomed first win at home.
