Wealdstone U10 Red vs Cademy

Good team performance for Wealdstone
We have only played Cademy once at the start of last season and won the game 3-2. Cademy have since moved down a league and come back up again so could be a different team. The pitch at Sidmouth Drive was in really good condition considering the recent weather. The day was completely clear sky and had warmed up after a relatively cold start.

Cademy are a very skilful team with some very fast players, they were playing on the break and would try to overload our defence to score goals without much possession. Wealdstone stood firm and defended well in numbers and were passing very well in midfield. Wealdstone created a lot of chances and could have scored more goals, the team were making good runs going forward and a couple of times could have created one on one chances with better paced balls. Overall this was a good team performance in what was a tough game, the boys should all be proud of themselves.
