23/24 - The Word in the Wood #28

Posted on 7th April, 2024

The Wood's U14 Boys, U13 Girls and U9 Girls all rested this weekend but, our U13 & U15 Boys played league matches looking for valuavle points to move them away from the bottom of their respective divisions.


U13 Boys had a good go but, were unable to secure the win, however, Hartslief did smash home his first of the season to the delight of the watching crowd!


U15 Boys meanwhile, played out one of their worst performances in memory with a soulless effort against New Salamis, deservedly losing the game 0-3. Frankly, the effort levels from so many of the players were hugely disappointing and with further crazy mistakes when defending, the boys continue to shoot themselves in the foot, simultaneously stripping the team of confidence and feeding the opposition in equal measure.


Goals have dried up for the team and Da Silva continues to be the Wood's main threat in the opposition box, denied today only by the linesman's flag and the left hand post; at times his play was exceptional and just a pleasure to behold.


Boshjaku upped his own performance considerably and enjoyed an excellent match at centre half, dominating in the air with quality distribution on the deck too. Crucefix, in the holding role, got stuck in from the off and also enjoyed a very good game indeed. Both boys shared MoM.


The team is now in a relegation dog-fight and in the coming weeks we'll discover what they are really made of and whether they care enough and are willing to work hard enough to gain the points they need to stay up?
