Two great games today at Powerleague. We were expecting worse weather today but we managed to escape before the storm arrives.
First opposition up was FC Strikerz Stingerz playing in Yellow. The Knights conceded an early goal but then came back with some good interplay and two excellent goals from Freddie ⚽ and Harry ⚽. A super throw in from Austin put the opposition under pressure again and an own goal was conceded. The Knights were on top in this game, excellent play from all the boys.
Second game against Adlington Eagles was much closer. There were multiple chances for the Knights but the opposition goalie put in some excellent saves. The difference between the two teams was an Adlington goal which was narrowly squeezed past Harry who played superbly in nets.
It was a good all round performance today from the boys against two similar ability teams, well done everyone 👏🏻

Storm Dennis wasn’t going to stop the mighty Vikings from taking to the field.
An epic first game against Bromley Cross Bullets, great game to watch with some great passing play from both teams ending in deadlock.
A frustrating second game against Turton Tigers (storm Dennis was just kicking in, making passing extra hard) great defending from all the boys, some superb dribbling from Maverick saw him grab 2 very well deserved goals⚽⚽ and Jacob T’s persistence also helping him get 2 goals⚽⚽ giving the boys a great & well deserved result.

Another strong performance from the Ninjas all putting in a real shift to dominate the game.
Well done to Oliver⚽️⚽️, Jacob⚽️⚽️⚽️, Tristan⚽️⚽️ and Alfie⚽️⚽️ for their goals.
Fantastic from the keepers Ted and Oliver get a clean sheet, the first for a while.
Difficult to select player of the match as they all did really well, but thought Emily🏅 in the first half was strong on the ball and chased and fought with some real determination to get player of the match.

Fantastic performance from the boys today. All got stuck in and worked hard against a really good team. Under pressure at the start but fantastic goalkeeping from Laken, solid defence from Charlie and brilliant defensive midfield play from Freddie kept us in the game. The Spartans began to contol the game with some excellent through balls from Jacob with Oliver and Isaac really getting stuck in midfield. Second half was a change in position but again some great football being played. Goals from Luca Aguero ⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️. Charlie ⚽️. And a great team goal finished by Oliver ⚽️. Along with assists from Jacob x 3, Charlie, Isaac and Laken from midfield who along with Freddie really dominated the midfield. Well done to 2nd half stand in keepers Jacob and Isaac doing there team proud. Today anyone could have won MOTM which today goes to Charlie. Well done everyone. Well done to Bolton Utd u9s aswell, they played well and are a great set of lads 👍

Difficult games today against a team a bit stronger in build and able to take advantage of long shots. Needed the extra body but the 2nd game there was a much improved confidence. Two games, opposing results with the latter victorious! Congrats to Sam for a superb finish and MoM award.
