On a wet and windy Sunday morning in Thornton Heath, Merton FC U10s were looking for their 2nd win in a row.
Players all turned up and a really good warm up before kick off was implemented all credit to Nayon dad who is clearly a very good coach.
Ref blew his whistle and we went 1-0 up though Jamal with really good run and even better finish.
Thomas scored the 2nd as we went 2-0 up with another top corner finish.
3rd Goal was own goal but would not have happened if Stevie Gumble had not chased down the defender and caused them to make a mistake.
4th Goal game from Stevie as he ran onto ball from a good pass and finished clinically into bottom corner.
Wallington goal was a free kick 20 yards out – hot with wind for them – went like a torpedo – Olllie got his hand to the ball and almost saved it – sure his body was still shaking with the power of the shot 10 mins later.
4-1 at half time.
2nd half they really came at us and our amazing sweeper Nayon was there to pick up the pieces – solid as a rock and very calm under pressure.
Ollie – safe hands Laughton produced a couple of good shots and was unable to keep out both Wallington goals……. 2 really impressive shots.
Team are back to winning ways – and we can now see clear passing and desire to chase every ball.
Big pat on the back to all involved – From banks of River Wandle to shores of Scilly we support mighty Merton Football club as we climb to top of the league.
Back home in warmth now – bring on Mitcham Park FC next week – we are ready – we are steady and we are together — united —
Ollies Dad.
