Meet Harley (PoM)

Great win today for Shawside Juniors Football Club u13’s Boca

Read what Coach Wayne Storey had to say!

”Well, what can I say! Shawside Atheltico put us through the wringer this morning in our cup quarter final. Winning 4v3 to go through to our semi-final.

Against the run of play and through shocking long ball tactics Wythenshawe found themselves 5 yards offside and nothing given letting them take the lead. Moments later they took a 2-goal lead through a penalty with Levelle adjudged to have handball in the area. We struggled to find our rhythm and passing and got ourselves back in the game on the stroke of half time with a speculative Charlie B effort from near the half way line bouncing in over their keeper.

Again, we started slow on the 2nd half and let the poor referring decisions get into our heads and found ourselves 3v1 down. They boys and girl showed true resilience and fight to stay in the game and get a goal back mid-way through the half from Captain Thomas. As we were pushing for a goal, we could have found ourselves 4v2 down if not for Elliott making a great double save and Harley’s last gasp tackle. With around 2 minutes left on the clock we got a free kick and Charlie B buried it to draw the game level and take it to penalties, or so we thought. We pushed forward after winning the ball back from a big lump up front and Daisy danced passed 4 players down the right and was brought down on the box to give us a chance to win it and we did with an emphatic strike from Levelle to send coaches, players, and parents wild. The desire, drive, and determination to keep going has been shown time and again this season by this team and it’s great to see.

PoM went to Harley who was superb throughout and solid at Centre half!!”

Meet Alfie,

Please give him and the team 3 cheers!

Great win today for Shawside Juniors Football Club u13’s Boca

Let’s see what Coach Wayne Storey had to say!

Picture of Man of match below

‘’Fantastic result this morning for Shawside U13 Boca Athelticos. We played against a strong Wythenshawe team today taking a 3v1 win to move within 5 games of the league title.

Everyone had to fight for every ball, every pass and header and we did that for the whole game.

Our passing wasn’t really on point but the times it was we opened them up and created a few chances.

We went in 2v0 at half time with goals from Charlie B and a top-quality strike from Jenson!

We told the lads at half time we had to ensure we went out and battled throughout the second half and to stop panicking on the ball uncharacteristically, and they did this despite a dubious decision leading to our opposition breaking up front and getting a penalty.

We didn’t allow this to affect our concentration and created a couple of chances with one leading to a penalty against Ciro who sat 4 of their players down and was finally assaulted by their defender.

Levelle stepped up to bury the penalty and silence the crowd and opposition players who chose to goad him unsuccessfully.

Goals from Charlie B, Levelle, and Jenson

MoM today was given to Alfie who covered all the pitch today and was simply put – UNSTOPPABLE.’’
