Year 5/6 Central Football League

Jump to Comments

To finish off our very busy day of sport at Hollinswood, our Year 5/6 boys’ football team had to play their Telford & Wrekin Central Football League fixture against Coalbrookdale, in the round of the last 16. We got off to a nightmare start as Coalbrookdale took the lead within the first two minutes of the game after miscommunication in defence. This gave us the wakeup call we needed and we equalised after a great through ball from Harvey put Abdullah through on goal and he took his chance to make it 1-1. Just before half time, although we had the majority of the play, Coalbrookdale again took the lead as their striker slotted into the bottom corner of our goal after being in a one on one situation with our goalkeeper. Harvey equalised for us with a tidy finish, with literally the last kick of the half, after great work down the right flank from Rio to make it 2-2. In the second half, our boys continued to dominate but could not beat the Coalbrookdale goalkeeper who made several great saves to keep them in the game. Inside the last minute of the match, fortune was on Coalbrookdale’s side as their number 6 struck the ball from range in hope and it looped over Callum to give them a 3-2 lead and win the match. Our team were bemused after putting in a good display but still losing the match, but this is the life of a footballer – not everything goes your way in games!

Keep your heads up boys; you can be proud of your achievements of being one of the last 16 schools in the whole of Telford & Wrekin!

Mr Griffiths.
