RRA challenging morning for the U8’s today at home to Chailey and Newick. We knew it would be a tough match and a couple of our players were missing which made a difference. But make no bones about it, Chailey are a great team, big for their age with some very skillful players and they are obviously really well coached.
As has been a bit of a pattern this season, we started very slowly and were 0-2 down within a few minutes. It’s tough to go behind early and heads were starting to go down. The first round of substitutions made a bit of a difference and the second half was an improvement but we needed some solid defending from Ryan, Kobe, Ronnie and Jamie and several moments of brave goalkeeping from Tom to keep the score down.
