U12 Bears - Match centre

Banstead (11 a side)
Walton Casuals Bears U13's
Sat 24 Jun 10:30 - Friendly Full time

Good run out against an unbeaten side

game of 3 halves!!

Bears lined up with 4 regulars missing including their skipper; (Jason, Will, Jaiden and Adam)

We played 3 20minute halves and allowed Banstead to bully us / play their own game almost throughout. We got caught out far too often by a route one long ball.

Ok the pitch didnt help but that is no excuse for the how we were asleep in the 1st 2 20mins periods.

Things to learn from today:

  • It doesnt matter who we are playing - WE NEED TO CONCENTRATE ON PLAYING OUR FOOTBALL
  • We need to press high up the pitch to stop the route 1 long balls
  • Win every 1st and 2nd ball
  • You showed today in the final 20minutes that when you get the ball down and play, you can and will out-play most teams.
  • Someone else needs to pick up the mantle when Jason is not there - WE WERE VERY QUIET
  • BE CONFIDENT IN YOUR OWN ABILITY AND THE ABILITY OF THE TEAM

Don't let the record of another team faze you before you even step on to the pitch.

You should be looking to do these 3 things every game: (if each one of you do these, you will win)

  • Enjoy the game
  • Give 110% effort and desire throughout
  • Make sure the opposition remember the day they played the Bears

See you all at training on Thursday
