PPFC U9s 1 – Highgate Rangers U9s 2

It was a difficult first half for the under nine team.

After doing some very good work in training over the last two weeks, we struggled with some of our passing and movement. The opposing team scored a good goal from distance and as we tried to find our rhythm Alekis got an injury.


PPFC U11 1 – Highgate Rangers U11 0

The under 11s had a barnstorming match on Saturday in the league against Highgate Rangers. It ended in Priory Park winning 1-0 which took them to third in the table. The team adopted a new formation with John playing centre half and Leonardo playing wing-back. The changes gave the team a more solid look at the back, which led to the team’s first clean sheet.

One of the many pleasing aspects of Saturday’s match came from training.

The last couple of sessions, even in the monsoon last week, have been on shape; passing into dangerous positions and movement off the ball – to receive the ball. The players showed this in abundance during the match. In the first half we made some very tall players (no ID cards) with good skills look very average. We totally dominated the game with about 6 or 7 clear chances. On another day, with more confident finishing, Jack could have had a hat trick.
