Academy Match Reports: Foundation v Scunthorpe United

31 October 2017

Gary Boagey brings us a quick round-up of the action from the Foundation phase games against Scunthorpe United at the weekend…

On Sunday our Foundation phase played against their counterparts from Scunthorpe United.

Our Under 10s and 12s played at home and our Under 9s and 11s played away at Scunthorpe.

Our Under 10s lost 2-4 at home in what was a disappointing performance. Our Under 12s won 8-0 with a very good team performance after starting the game slowly, this was a good week for them as they also won 4-2 away to Leeds United on Wednesday.

Our Under 9s won 7-2 at Scunthorpe which was a good reaction to a defeat at Leeds during the week; the coaches were happy with the players’ performance and ability to bounce back after the Leeds United game.

The Under 11s won 6-2 at Scunthorpe with a very good display creating lots of opportunities with fast efficient play opening up the Scunthorpe United defence.

Overall this was a good week for the Foundation phase with some positive team displays and some very good individual goals being scored. We look to our Under 10s to bounce back in their next fixture.
