Year 7 Football

Thursday evening saw the year 7 football team play Myton in a league fixture. The team started brightly and took the lead through a goal mouth scramble within the first 10 minutes. Southam played some superb football, looking to play from the back with neat interchanging passes through Archie, Alfie and Ronan, Southam should have doubled their lead but for a great save and then the rebound striking the post! Myton got back into the game through a well taken break away goal. Half time score 1-1.
Southam continued to press in the second half and still played from the back but a slight mix up allowed Myton to score their second. This didn’t deter Southam; with Oli and Jasper pressing in midfield, Ronan holding the ball up front and looking to play Harry in Southam had multiple efforts on goal. Southam should have been level but for two fantastic strikes from Harry hitting the upright and bouncing clear! Eventually the equaliser did come with 2 minutes to go, again it was another goal mouth scramble this time tucked away by Leo! Full time score 2-2.
Man of the match goes to Oli, who worked tirelessly in the midfield and always looked to create attacking chances.
A thoroughly entertaining game with some exceptional football played. It was certainly the best football I have seen played by the team this season and we are very unlucky not to have won!
Thank you to all parents and supporters who came to watch, it’s very much appreciated.
Our next game is on Monday against Kenilworth in the semi final of the cup.
Well done boys.

SOUTHAM STRIKE FOR THE FINAL

Last night, the year 8/9 with some year 7s football team played Kineton in the semi-final of the county cup.

The team started the game strong with E.Constable, A.Bourton. M.Free and S.Viteri pressuring forward in attack. A.Griffiths-Standagr and M.Norton kept pushing the ball forward and supporting in defence when needed. Some amazing attempts on goal from A.Bourton and S.Viteri kept the Kineton keeper active, but we couldn’t get past her!

H.Freimanis, M.Green, E.Luo and A.Stanley did well in defence to save A.Constable from having to do much keeping in goal. L.Parsons came on to add more pressure to the opposition, but still, neither teams could score!

At half time, Southam needed to up their game. Chasing every ball and pressuring every pass as well as being more creative in attack is what we needed.

After 2 minutes of the second half, Southam scored with a huge team effort, eventually giving M.Norton the goal. R.Dillon came on to support in defence and pressure the ball forward and A.Constable came out of goal to support in midfield, however, once Southam had begun scoring there was no stopping them! E.Constable, H.Freimanis, A.Griffiths-Standage and M.Free added their names to the score line and soon the game was being dominated by Southam.

Southam were definitely the stronger and more composed team in the second half and worked well together as the game came to a close.

Final score 8-0 to Southam! This puts the team into the County Final on Wednesday 3rd April at 4pm. If anyone would like to support the team and the U16s – the finals will take place at Campion school.

Well done to everyone!

Year 7 Football

Monday evening saw the year 7 football team play Stratford in their quarter final of the cup. On a bobbly pitch Southam started brightly and tried passing in neat triangles. Southam took a deserved lead on 5 minutes after Harry dispossessed the centre midfielder and then drove at the defence before unleashing a powerful strike into the top corner. Southam nearly conceded straight away but for a last ditch sliding tackle from Alfie K. Tremendous defending. The year 7 team continued to pass the ball around and created a few half chances but couldn’t score another until the 22nd minute. The wait was worth it as the goal was a brilliant team goal starting from Jasper in goal, to Alfie, to Oli, to Noah before a great through ball to Harry who nipped in and grabbed his 2nd of the game. A great team goal and pleasing to see what we’ve been working on at training paying off. Half time 2-0.

Southam continued to play in the same way in the 2nd half and could have scored more but for some good saves from the Stratford keeper. Stratford nearly got back into the game but a wonderful goal line block from Alfie B kept the score at 2-0. Southam did grab their 3rd after a snap shot from Oli was turned in by Joe. Full time 3-0. A very pleasing result with some dominant performances from Archie, Oli and Charlie. Jasper J deserves a special mention for a great first game back after injury! Man of the match goes to Alfie K.

Next game is on Thursday at home to Myton.

Well done on reaching the semi finals
