100% Record Maintained for the U15's

Arthur Terry 4 v 2 Bishop Walsh (League)
Hutchinson 2 (1 pen)
Swift
Francis
U15 League Table - Updated 29th Sept 2015.

The Y10 boys maintained their 100% winning record this season, by defeating Sutton Coldfield school Bishop Walsh 4-2 in a league fixture that took place today.  After conceding two penalties in the first half (the first of which was converted, whilst the second thumped against the bar), Arthur Terry came from a goal down to go into the break 2-1 ahead.  Reece Hutchinson coolly dispatched the 'third penalty' of the game to level the match 1-1, and Left midfielder Harry Swift slotted in a cross shortly after this, after his perfectly timed run to the back post.  In the second half Arthur Terry continued to show their quality, whilst contending with 'robust' tactics from their opponents.  Reece Hutchinson added his second of the game to extend the lead to 3-1. However, Walsh got themselves back into the game after converting yet 'another penalty' that had been awarded to the home side. Arthur Terry's two goal cushion was soon restored though after Sam Watts released the ball to Josiah Francis on the edge of the box, whose silky footwork outwitted the defense and keeper with a superb curled strike into the net to seal the match once and for all. 
A great team effort today - too hard to pick just one man of the match.
Notable performances:
GK Dylan Mandarcas (very unlucky to concede two goals - both from penalty kicks; handling & positioning in open play reliable as ever)
Jack Logan, Harry Palmer & Jack Pearson (3 solid rocks at the back)
Oliver Lewis & Qeyrhan Coughlan-Haywood (super midfield engines!!)
Sam Watts (tireless work ethic & no.1 target for the opposition!)
Josiah Francis & Reece Hutchinson (Superb finishing)
