Match Report by Willem Gerkema (Year 8)
St. Andrews Under 13 boys team went to Regents to play a friendly game of football. Both teams fought hard to get the ball. At the beginning Matthew got a hat trick by scoring some outstanding goals and St Andrews were up by 3-0. Lots of players also got assists like Ben, James and Wesley. After the first half Regents scored two goals in quick succession to put us under pressure. After we conceded two goals we stepped up our game - Willem and James both scored a goal. A few minutes before the end of the match, Matthew scored another goal and Adam scored a last minute goal.
After the match, we played another five minutes to give all of our team mates a chance to play longer. For example Keng and Ben went up to be strikers and Wesley was in goal. Every one was scared about Keng (the tank) running into them. He managed to get a nutmeg on one of the Regents players.
We have plenty of room to improve on some small mistakes and we have to get used to our new formation. Overall though it was a great first match for our Under 13 boys and a great first win with our new coach Mr. Standen.
