Match Report

Chorley FC under 13’s v Team Elite Saturday 7th September 2019 K.O 10.30 am Fulwood Academy

First Quarter

Team Elite (TE) kick off the first quarter and are on the attack straight away. A good clearance is required by Eddie.

Another break by TE but this time Hayden is there to tackle well and clear the danger.

Much of the possession is with TE and Chorley look a bit slow out of the blocks this morning.

Close!! Trae intercepts the ball and unleashes a great shot that the keeper does well to tip onto the post. The corner comes in but is cleared by the TE defence.

Oliver plays a lovely through ball to split the defence but it is just cleared in time before Trae can get to it.

Harry Jo goes down after a crunching tackle and TE break but Eddie is there to clear well in defence.

GOAL: 0-1 Good passing by the away team and they are through on goal and slot the ball home. Nothing Connor could do about that one.

More pressure from TE and now they hit the bar but Charley in defence clears the rebound.

As the half draws to an end Chorley are not getting enough possession and struggling to get out of their own half. The whistle blows for the end of the session. Chorley a little lucky to be only one goal behind.

Second quarter

A more lively start to this section by Chorley. They are moving quicker, finding their passes and getting into their opponents half more and getting stuck in physically.

GOAL: 0-2 A good cross and flicked in, not what we needed after Chorley have pressed in this quarter.

A speculative shot by Hayden goes wide but getting forward more now. 2-0 down but getting into the game a lot more now and a good game is developing.

A free kick from Hayden goes narrowly wide, a great effort.

GOAL: 0-3 Oh no!! Not what Chorley deserve as they are playing a lot better now.  A quick break and Connor stands no chance.

Good interplay between Alfie and Trae and Trae has the ball, oooooh his shot is cleared off the line.

Eddie is having a very solid game in defence. Nothing or no-one getting past him.

The ball is back with Oliver who controls well and gets a shot in but the keeper saves well.

The quarter ends in a very frustrating manner as Chorley have conceded 2 goals in it but have improved immensely. They deserve a bit of luck in the next quarter.

Third quarter

GOAL: 1-3. Excellent play by Chorley. They are getting better and better as the match goes on. Excellent play down the right. Joe to Trae who makes a great pass to Charlie in the box and he smashes it into the roof of the net. Game on.

GOAL: 2-3 Fantastic free kick from Hayden. He’s 40 yards out and unleashes a pile driver which the keeper can only help into the net. The crowd are going bonkers.

GOAL: 2-4 It’s raining goals in this entertaining third quarter. The ball squirms around in the box and Chorley can’t get it out. It falls to a TE player who hits a low shot into the bottom corner.

GOAL: 3-4 Good passing between Ryan and Charlie who gets the ball to Trae who buries it past the keeper. Come on you magpies!!! Chorley have the measure of this team now and it’s very even.

Another good clearance by dependable Eddie.

Chorley have really fought hard to get back into this game.

A cynical challenge on Charlie running down the wing. Hayden tries another screamer from the resulting free kick. This time it’s just over.

Good tackle by Hayden to stop a break and a superb ball by Ryan plays Joe through. He passes well to Charlie who gets the cross in but the keeper gathers. Good move.

Wow, that was a great quarter. Chorley are far more physical now with plenty of crunching challenges from Alfie in midfield and AJ, Eddie and Charles in defence. TE are rattled.

Fourth quarter 

We are off again in what has been a thoroughly pulsating and entertaining match for Chorley’s first foray into the JPL league. All the lads are playing hard now. They just need reminding that they have to do this in all four quarters not just the last three.

GOAL: 3-5 The ball pings round the box and Chorley cannot get it clear. It falls to a TE player who blasts it in.

More pressure from TE who push forward but a good clearance from AJ.

Chorley start to press themselves and Ryan finds Charlie with a fine through ball but the keeper just manages to clear and ET break again. Eddies there for a last ditch tackle and takes the ball away from danger upfield.

Hayden puts in a good cross towards goal and the keeper pushes out for a corner.

Oliver curls in a great corner and the keeper tips away for another corner. Good pressure from Chorley, the next corner is cleared upfield. Again, Wiggy who's tirelessly running the left wing picks it up and drives forward to put a great ball through to Ryan who takes on 3 players. His pass is just  too long for Charlie to get on the end of and the keeper gathers.

TE break forward and a good shot is matched by a great save from Connor with his legs for a corner.

Eddie clears the corner and some great interplay between James and Charlie, who just can't keep the ball in play.

GOAL: 3-6 A TE player picks the ball up on the edge of the box and fires a great shot into the top corner. A good goal. Chorley need to press and hold their nerve as another goal for TE would not reflect the performance of Chorley.

Close!!!! TE shoot but Connor leaps like a gazelle and tips it over the bar. A fine save.

GOAL: 4-6 A little belter. The crowd are on their feet, a hush descends around the ground. Charlie has won a free kick near the corner flag after the TE goalkeeper went walkabout! Haydens stood over this one. You could cut the tension with a knife. He can't do it again can he?? He blooming well can. Boom. He curls this one into the top corner, the stadium erupts, the crowd are on the pitch, the police are holding them back. The ref blows for full time. Pheeeew.

What a game. Chorley can be proud of the way they fought back, welcome to the JPL.

 Thats all from me folks. Next up, the small matter of the cup game between Chorley and local rivals Charnock Richard. Don't miss it.
