A close encounter
By Pramod Bhagat
Wealdstone lost aginst Greenforrd Celtic
Another sunny but cold morning for football.
Wealdstone U8 Green vs Greenford Celtic.
Wealdstone team: Zac, Aaron, Ronnie, Oliver, Divij and Chayden.
A quick start by Greenford and it was 1 -0 in no time. The boys soon pulled them selves together and by the end of the first half Zac 1 and Chayden 2 had us leading 3-1.
We seemed to lose our shape at the beginning of the 2nd half and against a good team like Greenford they made us pay. We where soon 4-3 down and it could have been worse if it wasn’t for man of the match Aaron in goal.
Chayden levelled it up for us but again Greenford came back, 5-4.
Another goal from Chayden and we where all tied on 5-5. At this stage all we wanted was the finale whistle to blow but unfortunately there was still enough time for Greenford to grab the winner. Heartbreak for the players and parents.
Definitely the most exciting game we have seen this season.
A good result against a very good team and if it wasn’t for a slow start to the 2nd half the result could have been different.
Thanks again to the manager, coaches and to the parents.
