U11s - Match Report

Work In Progress

(Rowan Kitton 19/10/2019)

Congleton Rovers JFC U11s  Vs  Barnton FC Village Juniors   (Score Withheld)

(Match Date: Saturday 19th October 2019)
Congleton Rovers travelled to Barnton looking for an improved performance from last weekends display. Rovers were put under pressure straight from the off, conceding 3 or 4 corners in the opening 5 minutes of the game. Barnton looked strong and determined and whilst Congleton managed to clear their lines time and again, the ball kept finding its way back towards the Rovers goal. When Congleton did manage to get the ball into the midfield areas, they were unable to keep possession as they were very narrow and were quickly under pressure.

Barnton deservedly took the lead and with 14 players available for Rovers, 5 changes were made as they looked to pull things back. This had an immediate impact and although they were unable to make any clear-cut chances, they were more competitive and had more structure and shape. The Barnton keeper made some fines saves as the Rovers forward players looked for the equaliser; however, it was again Barnton who found the back of the net from close range.

Congleton huffed and puffed and at times showed what they are capable of, but it was Barnton who maintained better possession and discipline. There was little width in the Rovers team and Barnton were comfortable with balls pumped forward through the middle. Further changes were made throughout the second half and Samuel Brightwell scored 2 goals with his pace and cool finishing. The second half showed an improved Rovers team performance, showing glimpses of what they are capable of.

There was plenty to learn from this game and the players worked hard. They are starting to see the competitive side of football and must now step up and meet the challenge of the opposition with equal determination and strength.

Next game is home v Winsford Colts.
