Under 7 Blue - Purbrook Eagles

Away | 16 September 2018
First away match of our first season as a team and the Clanfield U7 Blues were not showing any signs of nerves during the pre-match warm up. Indeed one of the Purbrook parents was overheard as saying how well drilled the Clanfield side were.

In the first half it was great to see the players setting each other up and playing their passes at just the right time – something that we have been working on recently during our ‘box sessions’ in training with the rest of the U7s.

The second half saw the new power play rule enacted (If either team goes four goals ahead the other team may field an extra player until the goal difference is reduced to three goals). Personally I’m a big fan and I think this worked really well, re-balancing the game and increasing the challenge all round. [LH]
