MATCH REPORT

Great weather, pitches in good nick, players keen after a three week break - perfect for some good football and so it proved. Both teams started superbly playing excellent passing football in the first set of matches. Utd were quickly into their stride scoring two first half goals to one from Cullompton. City were playing well without getting the breaks in front of goal but they eventually broke the deadlock through Raffy and went on to record a convincing win. Utd extended their lead in the second half to get another good result.

In the second set of matches Utd started where they left off scoring a number of goals. A hatrick from debutant Jack Day was the highlight. City found it harder going in their second match and a couple of scrappy goals put them on the back foot. The second half performance was much better but they couldn't find the Cully net.

We were really proud of the players today. Not only did they play in a good spirit they also showed how much they had progressed over the season by producing a lot of excellent passing football. Thanks also to the Cullompton players, coaches and parents who helped to make it a superb morning for all.

RESULTS

CITY 3 V 0 SCORPIONS

UTD 3 V 1 COBRAS

UTD 4 V 0 SCORPIONS

CITY 0 V 4 COBRAS

U9s Through to Cup Final

Created: Sunday, 20 March 2016 12:45


SEMI-FINAL WIN!

This Saturday, City played their part in a very tough cup semi-final at Dawlish. A horrible pitch, tough physical oppponents, nerves and emotions all played their part in creating an epic encounter.

The only goals of the game came in the first half. Dawlish opening their account with a headed goal. However, City were soon level with Milo scoring direct from a corner. From then on, chances for both sides were few and far between and even extra time couldn't separate the two teams. So penalties were needed to decide the tie. The players managed to deal with the pressure well, Matthew made two saves and City won the shoot out 4-3.

The reward - a final on the weeekend of May 7th/8th at the home of Exeter City!

Player of the Day - James

​PARENT INPUT

 

​Dear Parents, as we are now approaching the end of the season, myself and the other coaches are already beginning to reflect on how things have gone and what we might do differently next season, to enhance player experience.

 
We have two key proposals for next season, on which we would appreciate your thoughts:
 
1) Currently we have 27 registered players plus 4 who have recently joined us for training only. If we have in excess of 30 players, it would be feasible to register three teams with the Exeter Youth League. The benefit would be greatly increased playing time for all players. A possible issue is that it would fragment the squad somewhat as one of the teams would have to be paired with another club for Saturday fixtures. There would also be an increased demand for coaching capacity. In this scenario we would need 2 more parents/coaches to join the team. Players would be allocated into 'their' team with the aim being that the three teams are of a similar standard. However there would still be some moving between teams when player absence deemed it necessary to do so.
 
2) We are currently enquiring as to the availability of astro on an evening in addition to our regular Monday night slot. The proposal would be that we would make the session available to around 12/14 players who would form a 'development group'. These players would be those who, based on Monday evening experience, are the most receptive to the coaching we have to offer. This would provide players with an opportunity for enhanced development. An additional aim would be to continue to grow closer links with Exeter City. The additional cost would be approximately £1.50 per session or £50 per year.
Monday evenings and Saturday mornings would continue to be fully inclusive.
This proposal obviously depends on availability of a suitable and cost effective venue.
 
Do let me have your feedback on both proposals. In addition, please also let me know if you are keen to get involved in the coaching and team management, if you would be willing/able to let your child join the development group and if you would be prepared to pay the additional fees for that group.

This Saturday we welcomed Hemyock and Feniton to a warm and sunny KGV. It was a lovely morning of football played in great spirit by all and backed up by positive coaches and spectators. All of the games were entertaining with the Central teams playing some good passing football.

CITY 7 V 0 HEMYOCK

UTD 0 V 1 FENITON

CITY 4 V 2 FENITON

UTD 3 V 1 HEMYOCK

A big thank you to the two Dads, one Grandad and a brother who took care of the refereeing.

A number of players showed that they have really moved forward in their understanding of how passing and team work contributes to the overall performances of the teams. No one can do it on their own. I would encourage players to watch lots of football so that they can learn from others and also parents can help my repeating the key messages we share with the players about working together, playing unselfishly, looking for passing options when you have the ball and making yourself a passing option when your team mates have it.

Players of the Day - James for City and Jago for Utd

Next week City have a Cup Semi-Final away vs Dawlish. I am hopeful that we can take two teams to Dawlish for the usual four game format. Check the website on Weds for full details. Let me know asap if your child is not avaiable.

Both teams performed very well agianst strong opposition. Heavitree were particularly well organised, quick to close down space and strong in the tackle.

However, both Central teams were able to record a positive result in all the games.

Exeter City Development Squad

GAMES vs EXETER CITY DEVELOPMENT SQUAD

The U9s have been given the opportunity to play matches against the Exeter City Development squad.

Weds 9th March at St Lukes Sports College, Harts Lane, Exeter.

KO is 6.15 so please arrive promptly by 6.00 to allow time for a warm-up.

We should be finished by 7.30pm.

Remember full Central Kit, drinks, snacks, shin pads and astro trainers.

This is a nice opportunity following some persistence on my part to make it happen. The nature of the fixture and the fact that it is being played on a Weds evening, means it sits outside of the usual set of fixtures and our regular Monday night training sessions.

We are also limited by the numbers dictated by the Exeter City coaches, so unfortunately, we are only able to include half of the squad. Those players and their parents will be notified accordingly.

We are sorry if there is any disappointment, however we just cannot include everyone. We will endeavour to keep everybody playing regularly for the rest of the season and there will be opportunities for all to be involved in summer tournaments during May and July.

​MATCH REPORT

​This week the U9s welcomed Stoke Hill Juniors in the Cup and Tiverton Town in a 'league' friendly. The cup game was first to KO and City were soon into their stride. Able to soak up pressure, they looked dangerous on the break, creating lots of chances and gaining a two goal advantage by half time. The second half was tighter but a third goal proved decisive. A late Stoke Hill effort kept the players on their toes but they were able to see the game out.

Utd played first against a spirited Tiverton Town. They had to work hard but played some nice football in a good win. City continued their good form against Tiverton, playing some lovely flowing football and lots of goals.

Utd put in a great performance against a very good Stoke Hill side and fought back brilliantly from two nil down to draw level. They might even feel they were unlucky not to come away with what would have been a deserved win.

RESULTS

City 3 v 1 Stoke Hill

Utd 3 v 0 Tiverton

City 5 v 0 Tiverton

Utd 2 v 2 Stoke Hill
