On Wed 26th Sept, the Year 9 boys football team kicked off their season by welcoming Sprowston to CAN. Sprowston played the better football in the first half and were 2-0 up before a superb counter attack resulted in Marley scoring a fantastic goal for CAN against the run of play. Yad, making his debut then bundled home an equaliser before half time. Just after half time Alfie's free kick was parried by the keeper to Ethan who tapped home. Sprowston then scored a super goal when their winger crossed for the attacker to head across goal into the far corner. The game was swinging from end to end with Yad adding his second of the game and Sprowston equalising. In the final minutes of the game Tyler kicked long for Alfie to run onto and lob the keeper to seal the win for CAN. Well done to all the players for the grit, determination and work ethic to get back into the game. Notable mentions to Kai and Yad on their debuts but Man of the match goes to Ethan Bailey for a tremendous performance in midfield.
Well done all and get to training on a Monday after school and to fitness club on Wednesdays and Fridays.
Final score: CAN 5 - 4 Sprowston
