Airbus Defeat For The U-19s

On Sunday, December 2nd, 13 of the Performance Phase players faced Airbus away in the FAW Development League (North), writes Steve Benyon.

After a few late adjustments due to issues beyond our control the players settled well into the game, playing some great football, and adjusting well to Airbus’ game strategy.

However, against the run of play, a catalogue of errors saw Airbus take the lead with a well-taken finish inside the 18-yard box.

The second half again saw the boys control the game, however without really testing the Airbus goalkeeper.

On a sour note, after asking an Airbus player to play the ball back to our goalkeeper, the ball looped over his head and into the net. The ref deemed this OK and awarded the goal, much to the amazement of all watching.

The game finished 2-0 to the hosts.

This week we prepare again for two College games against AFC Fylde and Stafford respectively, as well as Airbus at home on Sunday in the under 19’s league.
