Our BecBees recorded their first points of the new season with our U11 team kicking off the season with 4 matches in the first round of the London Mini Games.
First up were Bromley – the team had been primed by Coach Chloe and the players were keen to start off well and build upon the experience gained through last season’s matches. The BecBees were moving the ball from defence to offence with real clarity and precision but the shots found themselves just missing the mark. However, due to some resolute defence the spoils were shared as the game ended 0-0; a classic example of the score line not matching the level of play (from both teams). One thing was clear however, the BecBees had made great strides over the Summer with the on looking parents commenting on how improved the level of play was.
With no time to catch their breath the next game was up against a strong Hayes Blue team. A special moment for Aadam who was making his first appearance for the club! Whilst the movement from the previous game was still there, the pressure by Hayes Blue resulted in our passes not quite finding our players. Hayes Blue capitalised on this and with some good interceptions they were able to counter quickly and convert shots to goals. A 0-3 loss but further invaluable experience for our players.
One game break and time for Coach Chloe to go through and reinforce a few pointers, notably taking an extra split-second on their shot
