Harris 3 v GMHC 5ths Mens/Youths
By Stephen Griffiths
#midseasonfinale v Harris 3
Today the 5ths faced one of the bigger challenges against Harris who were a team made up of adults and older teenagers.
Jake Swan captained today.
The team worked hard throughout and continued to move the ball well, unfortunately they were unable to break down a congested Harris defence.
The 5ths were supported by Trigger and Pizza today due to a couple of injuries to the older contingent, but maintained the policy of only having 3 or 4 adults on the pitch at all times, 1 or 2 teenagers and the rest of the team aged 14 or under.
The improvement in the passing, skills and positional knowledge of the boys since the first league game is very pleasing and has been commented on by opposition coaches and players.
Special mention today to our three 11 year olds - Alfie, John Donald and Finlay Duncan. Also a return for Cameron Yule who had not played since the first league game but played at left back and performed very well.
That's outdoor done for 2018, looking forward to 5ths progressing their skills in the indoor league.
