Vipers | Under 10's
After cruising to the league title last season, we found ourselves in a much harder division this year. But it’s actually been a far more enjoyable season on the whole, as all the matches have been close, hard-fought and played in a great spirit. We’ve had a mixed bag of results – after a fantastic winning streak mid-season, our confidence faltered towards the end of the season with some draws and losses. A couple of those losses were real head-scratchers as we tried to figure out exactly how we had lost given the quality of our performance – but that’s the beautiful game for you!
Three main highlights this season:
Beating teams that we had lost to quite heavily a couple of seasons ago
The progression and improvement of every player individually in their skill and determination, and of the team as a whole in playing for each other and growing in awareness of the match as a whole and using all the space on the pitch
The attitude and positivity of the team when things have gone against us and the humility shown when things have gone our way.
As ever, it’s been a juggling act to get the whole squad involved, but everyone has played a valuable part. We try to encourage quick, passing football with everyone knowing their job in the team – it’s so pleasing when we see the boys taking into the matches the things we’ve been practising in training. When it clicks, this group of lads can produce some breath-taking football! We are really proud of all the boys and they are a credit to the club. Looking forward to next season!
