The Grove Colts Football vs Birkenhead School

Continuing our yearly tradition, we hosted Birkenhead School from the Wirral as part of their annual football tour.

Looking to bounce back from midweek defeat we started well, putting pressure on our opponents. We were however coming up against a very confident team who weren’t fazed by this pressure and were moving the ball around with great skill.

When we did eventually win the ball back we were unable to keep it for long passages, although the introduction of Keith Adeleye and Kanye Nwuga gave the team more attacking pace and we threatened on the counter attack at times.

We weren’t able to keep out our opposition and they found joy in front of goal, partly through skill and partly through our lack of marking, with us gifting them far too much space in our penalty area.

The boys can be more pleased with their efforts in this game compared to Wednesday, as they did threaten going forward, and did continue to work to try and stop Birkenhead.
