BOURNEMOUTH YOUTH FOOTBALL LEAGUE
CHRISTCHURCH v GRANGE
MATCH RESULT: 2 – 1
GOAL SCORERS: ALEX, OLLIE
Back to the league today after the disappointment of the cup last week and the opponents were The Grange.
We knew from their previous results that this was going to be a close encounter and so it proved.
This Christchurch team is still work in progress with so many new players and this is evident by the patchiness of the play, sometimes brilliant sometimes awful!
The opening goal from Alex was a ” worldly ” from the right side of the box which flew into the top corner. The second came from some lovely build up play a series of six quick passes and Ollie met the cross from Bubba six yards out. At 2 – 0 I thought we would go on to win with ease but that proved not to be the case and Grange made a real game of it and in the end we were indebted to Jem for a double save which gave us the win.
Mention for the back three today who knew they had been in a game and looked solid most of the game.
Point of learning for the team is we are much better when we keep the ball moving. Too many touches lead to too many turnovers in play and stop us doing what we do best quick tempo football based around passing and moving. Think about this before our next game.
That said another three points on the board.
