It's raining again....1-0 victory for the reds!

On a day of constant, torrential rain Newport boys played their first game of the season yesterday against Bentley Junior School, Farnham in the u-11 Hampshire Cup.

In a very tough, close game on a very, very wet afternoon the boys played incredibly well. In the first half Bentley created lots of chances but Richard dealt with all the shots comfortably. As thew game progressed, the boys created more and more chances. After a few near misses they finally broke the deadlock close to the end. Reece deservedly slotted a goal past the Bentley goalie.
Bentley came close to equalising near the end but the boys in red held on, in an incredibly exciting game to watch. Heart breaking from the boys in green who had played very well indeed, (they were tournament cup winners last year) but a wonderful result for our boys in red.

For a few of the boys this was their first full game. They all chased, passed and played magnificently in very difficult conditions and against a very good team. Unfortunately, Matthew had to withdraw soon after the start due to feeling unwell but he stayed on to support his teammates.
MoM was Cameron McD who stuck to his task well but all the boys were absolutely fabulous.
A game to remember for a long time.
Team: Richard, Reece M, Cameron McD, Juho, Rhys,Ross, Lewis,Reece, Matthew.

A huge thank you to all the parents who got absolutely soaked through.
