BMFC Goal Scorers: Ash (2), Ethan

Player of the Match: Sam

Match Report: Derby day. Numbers had been a concern during the week with 4 injuries and only a squad of 13 but fortunately enough boys came good come Saturday

Keen to tighten ourselves defensively, even if meaning losing a bit offensively a structural change had been worked on at training and employed on game day

We made a quick start with Ash driving into the box on the left and shooting into the bottom corner for the opener. The remainder of the first half was fairly even – we had a couple of chances, particularly Ethan through one on one and putting his shot just wide

In the second half, we seemed to take control of the game and two further goals came – Sam providing a super through ball for Ethan to beat the goalie one on one and Ash driving into the box and rifling a bullet shot home

Eli was largely untroubled in goal. His distribution was excellent – one chipped goal kick to Martin out wide a stand out. Sam and Max defended well & both got forward a number of times with the central midfielders of Jake and Martin providing great cover. Harry was creative down the right and Aidan in the first and Alex Win in the second half provided and great link between defence and attack

Sam voted player of the match – always gives 100%, defends well, gets forward and created a goal today
