Oak Wood v Shenstone

25.1.16
Football match v Shenstone
10 a side
60 min game (30min each way)

Started out very dominant keeping possession and closing down the other team until they got a goal but we held our heads up high and got an equaliser from Kain Carey just before half time with a great strike.

Second half could of gone better losing to goals in a matter of minutes going 3-1 down. Oak Wood battled through and showed some great team spirit getting a second goal back from Jake Mackiewikz with a tap in at the back post.

Minutes to go and one final push saw a great cross form Liam Murray to the far post where Nathan Donnachie smashed it in the back of the net.

Final result:
Oakwood 3-3 Shenstone

The whole team were so proud of themselves and so happy it was fantastic to be a part of and they also did it in front of their friends/supporters and teachers! Looking forward to the next game. Oak Wood Football Team, Mixed yrs

The pitch was indoors on 3G and was split into four quarters, in one half there were two games going on and in the other half it was for teams to warm up and leave belongings in. The pupils played very well battling hard and enjoying playing football with peers. They won as a whole five games, drew two and lost two. Both teams played really well.

Kick off 11.30
9 a side
60 min game (30min each way)

Started out very well keeping possession and passing the ball around frequently we then went a couple of goals down due to some great football from the opposition but held our formation well and all was still playing with a smile on their faces enjoying it. Second half the rain and muddy surface did not help our cause although we lost the lads really enjoyed it and are eager for the next game.

The whole team had a chat after the game coming up with ideas they wanted to move forward and things they wanted to individually improve on. The biggest suggestion was to do more frequent football training in school time.

Final result:
Westcroft 10-0 Oakwood
