Friendly Game with Queen Vic 18/3/022
A brilliant 4 - 2 win for the B team against a very competitive Queen Vic team.
The game started with a flourish, Leyton B setting an early high standard for the game with some outstanding crossing and skills from the wing. He was then rewarded for his skills from a long distance shot that found the bottom corner.
High pressure then saw Jack R steal the ball high up the pitch and covert his opportunity to make it 2-0. Queen Vic then found themselves on the break after winning the ball in the Alder Coppice penalty area to which they then scored and gave them some much needed confidence. Chudi came to the rescue in goal with some outstanding goal keeping to stop Queen Vic in their tracks.
Jacob G then found himself up field from his CDM position and took his opportunity with an outstanding long distance effort finding the corner. Queen Vic then scored once more but it was only to be a consolation goal as Seb T sealed the game with a fine finish to make it 4 goals for Alder Coppice.
Alder Coppice 13 – 3 Queen Victoria – 18/03/2022
The first competitive League match saw Alder Coppice comfortably beat Queen Vic at home in a 13 – 3 win. It was fantastic to see lots of parents, staff and pupils supporting the team, and they certainly performed to a high standard. It was pleasing to see that team moral was high, and the game being played in good spirits from both teams.
Tyra D and Ronnie R were strong in defence with Archie R making some very good and important saves when the match was still close. Blake H, Jamie H and Freddie M all played vital roles both in the middle of the pitch (scoring 2 goals each), supporting the defence when required, and also out wide supporting the strikers, Jack G, who scored 2, and Josh S, who scored and impressive 4. Harry B and Jenson M also made very good impressions out wide.
Alder Coppice 10 – 2 Belle Vue – 28/03/2022
Another sunny day. Another football match. Another comfortable win. Alder Coppice once again treated the supporters to an enjoyable win with a 10 – 2 victory against Belle Vue in a friendly match. The first half saw a strong battle between two very good defensive sides – Tyra D and Ronnie holding the fort for us with Chudi A making some remarkable saves in an impressive first team debut in goal for the injured Archie R, who managed to play the second half keeping a clean sheet. Alder Coppice hadn’t played a match this competitive before, and this was noticeable as Belle Vue had the upper hand for the majority of the first half. However, with a first half double from Jack G, who finished with an impressive 5 goals in the game, Alder Coppice went into the break leading 4 – 2. In the second half, Alder Coppice were composed on the ball, and with the introduction of Josh S playing up front with Jack G, Alder Coppice took a commanding lead that Belle Vue were unable to come back from (Josh S scoring 4 goals for the second game running). Another very impressive performance from Alder Coppice, who are now 3 wins out of 3 this academic year.
