Well you lads have certainly been practicing over the summer holidays! Great opening game friendly against Horncastle on Sunday. Good passing, talking, positional play and really impressive goals from Ged, Joe,Billy and Eli sealed the win.This season we will also be counting assists as we know they mean a lot to you guys so well done to Will (x2) and Eli, not sure about Eli’s goal but I am sure you will tell me at training this Thursday! Hope you enjoy the photos taken by Alfie’s Dad.
Training this Thursday 6.15-7.30pm on the grass
We will be working on fitness and jockeying. Both will be important for our friendly this Sunday. Naturally we will have a good game at the end, if you can still walk 😉 !
We will also be selecting the goalkeeper for Sunday as Alfie is away.
Friendly match this Sunday – Lowland Bees Away – 2.15pm kick-off
This has always been a hard game for us and will be a lot harder than last Sunday. These are the games where we will learn more though and learning not to jump in on tackles will give them far less chances to score and if you play your normal game will give them a few scares – I think they are expecting to win so lets make it really difficult! I will give your parents the address and please be there no later than 1.45pm.
Joe is captain for this game.
Welton FC have had a great day out at Stoke City today, three Coaches loaded with excited children and parents left Manor Park at 8:30 and arrived at the Britannia Stadium at 11:45 in time for our Stadium tour.
After lunch it was back in the stadium for a group photo before we all took our seats by the players tunnel.
Stoke stated brightly and took a deserved lead after a scramble in the West Ham box and Moses forced the ball home. He celebrated in the corner in front of us! Stoke continued to dominate the first half but failed increase there lead.
At half time Stoke made a presentation to representatives from Welton FC and the club badge was displayed on the stadium screen!
Stoke City continued to push forward and doubled there advantage early in the second half when Diouf headed home a Jon Walters cross.
West Ham had not but together an attack of note until Downing broke down the right and crossed to the far post for Valencia to head in with 30 minuets left.
Stoke continued to play the better football and create chances but Stuart Downing denied them all three points when he drove in the equaliser from inside the 18 yard box.
A big thank you to Stoke City for their hospitality and Welton’s Jonathan Hodges for organising an excellent day out for everybody.
