Here we - division 3!
Start of the new season and we are now Wealdstone Youth Red and in division 3 - Wow!
We knew it was a good start when the ref said he couldn't let us start the game because of a couple of holes in the pitch - a quick trip to Homebase for some soil and a bit of stomping like they do at Polo matches and we were given the green light.
Kick off and the action started straight away, some good tackles by Wealdstone and a strong back line but unfortunately first blood went to Belmont half way through the first half. Wealdstone kicked it up a gear and Dom blasted it into the back of the net to equalise. A couple of near misses from Ollie and Dom before an excellent run of play culminating in Rokas setting up the shot for Sam to score. 2-1 at the end of the first half.
Second half and both teams weren't resting on their laurels, the ball was down at the Belmont end when their defence left it for the keeper and the keeper left it for the defence so Sam tapped it in which upset them a little...
Although Belmont played hard Sam's goal was followed by one from Rhys, and after a tackle that left Dom on the ground for a minute, Wealdstone were later awarded a penalty which he scored convincingly. Play was at both ends of the pitch but in truth Jamie was not troubled overly, after the ball made its way back to the Belmont end Rhys played a brilliant curving ball to bring the final score to 6-1.
Well done boys :)
