Under 10s football training with Royal Russell

Elmhurst School for Boys

17th September 2015 | Sport

This week, the Under 10s Football squad were invited to Royal Russell to participate in A & B training games against Royal Russell’s Under 10s. This was the second occasion of this type to be played this term as the Under 9s played in a training game against Royal Russell last Friday.

Our current Under 10s won the Caterham Under 9s Tournament last season and we are anticipating a good season with some of the boys also being selected for the Elmhurst Under 11s.

Andrew D, who has just been selected for the ISA London South U11 representative squad, controlled the A Team midfield throughout the first half. He set up or scored all of the five goals that Elmhurst scored. At half-time we decided to switch around the players to give Oscar S and Joseph U a chance to play out of defence and into midfield on the two wings and brought the two wingers, Temu L and Isaiah O into the defence. Andrew played as the loan striker and Tobi O was brought back into midfield. From the kick off Andrew scored a wonderful individual goal, but Royal Russell were able to find more space on the wings and had been told by their coach, Mr. Vaneer to move the ball up the pitch more quickly. They listened to this and it paid off for their striker who was able to score twice in the second half.

The final score for the A Team was a 2-6 win and the B team enjoyed a 3-3 draw with Alexander A, a recruit from the U9 squad, scoring twice and Joshua M scoring the third.

These training games offer both Elmhurst and Royal Russell boys an excellent opportunity to play games of Football very early in the season but they also give the coaches the chance to identify areas to be worked on in training sessions and Games lessons. The U8s will have their opportunity on Saturday 26th September at the Royal Russell Fun Football Festival and the U11s have their first fixtures of the season next Wednesday, when the A & B teams will play a friendly fixture against Whitgift.
