2016 EXETER AND DISTRICT U9s LEAGUE CUP FINAL

​It was always going to be an exciting day for Central City U9s, playing a Cup Final at the home of Exeter City against Brixington Blues. Fittingly, this was a final between the two strongest sides in the U9s 'league'. The sun shone and a large crowd of parents, grandparents, siblings and friends were there to lend their support.

In some ways it was always going to be a tough, tight affair. The pitch was quite small and Brixington are a team who are able to close down their opposition very quickly and effectively. In the early exchanges, Brixington looked the stronger side, however an early Central attack ended with Alastair Smith poking the ball into the bottom corner to open the scoring. The goal seemed to calm any Central nerves and the team gradually took more control as a result. Brixington were still dangerous and Matthew Mycock had to be alert on a couple of occasions.

At half time the one goal lead was a source of confidence for the players and they started the second half strongly. Early pressure created a series of attacking throws and corners. One long throw from James Boulton deflected off a Brixington player, making it 2-0. A slightly fortunate goal but the outcome of a sustained period of pressure. Central's tails were up now and they began to dominate, intelligently keeping most of the play in the Brixington half. The continued pressure paid off as yet another corner gave Jaiden Page the opportunity to score directly from it.

The subs, Sam and Joe came on, their fresh legs a real asset, enabling City to control the remaining minutes, which the whole team did remarkably well. The final whistle sparked joyous scenes of celebration as the players realised their dreams. A fitting end to an excellent season, well deserved for all involved.

MATCH REPORT

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.
