Watlington Blackcaps vs Bardwell Bullets
It was a tight, competitive development game between Watlington and Bardwell this weekend.
Watlington showed why they are an established A division team, but Bardwell were equally disciplined and committed and played some good football on a difficult pitch. The boys kept going to the end and deserve credit for their focus and patience throughout.
In the friendly game, there were some pleasing individual performances and the boys benefited from testing themselves in different positions. There's some work for us to do on keeping our coherency when we change things around (as well as how to take throw-ins!), but credit to Watlington for playing some good football.
Some exceptionally well taken goals from Bardwell this week, these came from Ewan Michael, Leo Barker and Ollie Wickens.
Player of the Week was given to Ollie Wickens for his enthusiastic contribution as goalkeeper, defender and striker and for scoring a fabulous goal.
