AFC Rushden & Diamonds U12 v TS Academy U12 - 24/011/18
Today we hosted the U12 squad from TS Academy who have started the season well. We did manage to get a previous glimpse of them earlier in the season when we happened to be on pitches next to them when away to Birmingham St George, so we knew we were going to have to be at our best. However with both GK's plus a midfielder unavailable due to sickness and an attacker out injured we were stretched as a squad.
We did get off to a good start with an early goal from a corner when the second ball was volleyed in by Oliver Wheatley. Both teams settled in to their pattern of play, however I felt we managed to play against TS Academy in a way that allowed us to win the ball back high up the pitch. Starting many attacks centrally. We scored two more goals, Josh Berwick following up a rebound and another from debutant Joe Potter put us in control, 3-0 at half time.
The second half continued the same with us winning the ball high up the pitch and further goals from James Williamds and four more from Joe Potter put us out of sight. TS Academy did manage to get one back when a parried shot from a free kick was put in from the follow up. Entering the final quater we were able to counter attack regualry with another goal for Oliver Wheatley and one for Dylan Flynn. The game was a good test for both as I feel TS Academy actually played well in individual moments but they could not knit it together regualrly enough throughout the game.
