This was an exciting match and another excellent performance from the Bristol Central

Under 11 Team. They fully deserved their victory although they had to work hard to win

against a good Avon team.

The secret behind our success was that we managed to take control of the Midfield

where Ray again had an outstanding match sending a succession of great passes forward

and across the pitch. He was ably supported by Morgan who played more of a Holding role next to him. Taijon always looked lively and powerful on the Left...and it was from one of his crosses that the ball reached LUKA. He took just one touch to control the ball and then hit a powerful shot wide of the \'Keeper into the net. 1 - 0.

A few minutes later, Luka nearly scored again with another good shot but their \'Keeper

managed to keep it out. A third attempt by Luka went wide of the post.

At the other end of the pitch, our defence was put under pressure, mostly from the Avon no. 8,

a clever and determined player. But we defended as a unit with players covering each other and

went to the interval well in control of the match.

The second half was more or less a repeat of the first half, with a number of good attacks

from Central. A great crossfield pass from Ray went to KHARI who managed to get clear of his

marker and blasted home our second goal. Avon fought hard to get back into the match and

nearly scored... a through ball wide of the penalty area led to Lewis, our \'Keeper coming out to

clear and his clearance was deflected to an Avon player near to our Goal. Somehow or other,

Lewis managed to get back on his line and produced a brilliant save to turn the ball for a corner.

I was impressed to see so much clever link-up play between all of our players and the fact that

the passes were a bit longer and more accurate. Too much bunching together has sometimes

caused us problems but this was not the case this evening.

One of the other secrets of our success all season has been our strong defence so well done

to Caleb, Jonathan and Jacob and Lamar. Keep up the good work. We are nearing the end now with just 5 games left to play. Bristol Central, you are the best team in Division B. You

just have to believe it !!! And congratulations to all the Coaching Staff !
