Match Report
Northampton School for Boys Boys-U12A vs  Sandwell Academy
On: Monday, 14 Jan 2019
Venue: Away

There are times when the score at full-time doesn't reflect the match that just happened - this was one of those occasions. Sandwell were good for the win and have undoubted quality, all the best to them going forward, but we ran them a lot closer than the result indicates. The team played some strong pressing football in the first half and were disappointed not to have scored. 1 - 0 at the turn became 2-0 shortly afterwards but at 2-1 we were once again pressing hard and unlucky not to tie things up.

At this age it is easy to lose heart when a game appears to slip away and 2-1 became 6-1 in the final 10 minutes, suggesting a thumping which really wasn't the case.

Well done to all players, you could not have given more on the day and the performance suggests that team will find us a handful in town and county matches we have remaining this year.
