Under 9s v Mayford FC –  29.1. 2017
 
Merton 2 Mayford 2
 
In muddy conditions at the end of January, Merton Under 9s took on Mayford in a well-balanced and tense match at the Joseph Hood.  A first goal by Mayford in the first half led to a spirited equaliser by Tom, who showed some strong attacking play up front. Callum again proved his strength and power in midfield with some excellent tackles, whilst Jack and Harry played well on the wings. 
 
Another goal in the second half by Tom, and Merton were in the ascendancy. Sam, who had recently taken up the mantle of goal-keeper, did not disappoint and provided a worthy man-of the-match display with his calm and solid game in goal, with some far-reaching goal kicks. Kalyan was as always a reassuring presence in defence, whilst Tommieā€™s speed and agility put pressure on Mayford in their own half. Presley also made some fantastic runs and showed a lot of composure with time on the ball. 
 
Another excellent and mature game by the young Merton Under 9s that showed that they have the ability to go from strength to strength. Well done!
