Cup Win For U11 Ospreys

Saturday 25th March 2017, Division 7 Cup Final at Frimley Lodge

Mytchett Athletic Ospreys 6 – 1 Headley Youth Scorpions

The Ospreys started off their first ever cup final like they meant business. Showing no sign of nerves (unlike the managers and parents) the Ospreys quickly moved the ball around, were dominant at the back and started creating chance after chance. Having previously only beaten the Scorpions once in 6 matches the Ospreys certainly knew they would be in for a tough match.

Just 2 minutes in and BOOM Isaac puts us 1-0 up, then he makes it 2-0 a few minutes later before chipping the keeper and the ball going over the line to get his hat-trick with Emma on hand to make sure it went in, 3-0 up after 14 minutes, the Ospreys were on a roll and in command of the match.

Into the 2nd half and more of the same, solid defence and flowing attacking play with 3 more goals, a well taken brace from George and an Alfie Corner going straight in. Credit to Headley who never gave up and got a deserved consolation goal in the final few minutes.

Absolutely amazing performance from all 14 players today. A great season just gets better and better for the Ospreys, that’s 10 wins in 10, absolutely top class guys and girls. Fantastic support for the Ospreys.

The Ospreys have come on so much in the 19 months since Craig put together what was then the Under 10’s 5th team. This team are an absolute joy to manage and a pleasure to watch week in week out.

Well done all of you, Come on You Ospreys. Division 7 CHAMPIONS 2016/17
