Later we went to the hotel where we had dinner together then all went to our rooms.
In the morning we had breakfast, meeting then off to play at 2 times reigning national champions Hartpury College.
We began the game at a high tempo, controlling the game. After 2 minutes we transferred the ball across the pitch quickly to find Kane with a shooting opportunity. The Goal keeper made an outstanding save. After 40 minutes it was us controlling the match however with few chances to score from both teams. If you switch off against good oppoisition for a second then you get punished and that is what happened. On the 42nd minute Takuki was pressured, lost his footing and one of their players went through on goal and put it between the goalies legs. To make matters worse, straight from the kick off they score again to make it 2-0 at half time. After we controlled the half!
2nd half we went 3-0 down. We changed formation and looked very dangerous. It ended 4-2. We battled till the end, but individual errors cost us. They are apparently the best in the country yet we controlled the game so it has been a hard one to swallow.
We now know the level what is required and we push on and focus on the U19 Sussex league which we are currently top and our tournament in Barcelona.
It has been so positive so far… players have had trials with Chelsea FC, West Ham FC, Bournemouth FC, Cheltenham Town FC, AFC Wimbledon. We also have had an invite from Liverpool for two players!
We are recruiting for September so please if you know of any players hat would like to come, please contact me.
We go again!!!!
