Year 5/6 Football (Oakridge v Great Binfields)

Our first fixture of the school year saw us host Great Binfield's with our new year 5/6 team looking very strong and confident going into the game.


We were on the front foot from the off as our attacking players immediately put the pressure on their back line and started to create a number of chances that we couldn't quite convert.  With the Binfield's defence holding out it took a fantastic through ball from Zach to set Teddy through 1v1 with their keeper which he cooly converted to give us a much deserved 1-0 lead. From here we were dominant throughout, limiting the opposition to very few chances and we grabbed our second goal through Teddy again to make it 2-0 heading into half time.


The message at half term was clear, keep doing the exact same things as we were in the first half and we will score some more goals.


The boys came out firing in the second half as we quickly piled the pressure onto the Binfield's back line, not allowing them the time to settle down or knock the ball about. Finley and Calum got themselves a goal apiece with Teddy completing his hat-trick from the penalty spot. If it wasn't for a magnificent performance from the Binfield's second half goalie then I believe we could of scored more than the 5 we did. The only criticism was I thought we could have finished our chances better and I think the boys agreed with me! However, I think we did everything else perfectly, the game plan, pressing, passing, movement and work-rate were all spot on and we thoroughly deserved our win. Final score: Oakridge 5-0 Great Binfield's.


Team: Riley, George, Jackson, Calum, Henry, Zach, Finley, Tommy and Teddy.
