Wealdstone U9 Blue hit Wembley for 6!
By Colin Green
Wealdstone 6 - Wembley 2
We lost heavily to Wembley last season and we knew this would be our toughest test so far. We set up to attack from the off and the boys were told to win the game in the first half.
We pressed from the off with Daniel G, scoring 2 lovely goals early on with some great team play with Michael and Rueban. Frankie then smashed in a 3rd, with Daniel getting a 4th and the Frankie tapping in for his 2nd our 5th. 5-0. We totally dominated the game and this very physical side were totally outplayed, Alex hitting the woodwork after some great wing play. A couple of other chances missed and we went in 5-0 half time.
We knew Wembley would throw everything at us. So we changed to 2-3-1 bringing in Eoin and Brandon to sure things up a bit. After a bruising 10 mins we conceded 5-1 and Wembley looked inspired! We dug in and missed 2-3 chances and a penalty so the pressure was still on. Wembley got another back making it 5-2. We got our shape back and hit them on the counter 6-2. Alex again unlucky hitting the post to put us out of site.
Great defending from Stephen, Brandon and Eoin kept us tight and it finished 6-2! The boys were superb today really played well and dug in when they had too.
That’s 3 wins out of 3!
