Another amazing result from our sponsored team, the Scorpions! This past Sunday, after a 12 week break, the boys took the scenic drive over to Latham park to face Newtown’s academy U12’s, in what became a really exciting game.
To have the opportunity to play at a Welsh Premier league ground in such beautiful surroundings was a real treat for the boys. With a few away on holiday we were a little short, but that allowed for lots of playing time for all the team-mates that day and allowed Ethan from the U11’s to join in and experience a match with the older boys.
It was a tough game against a well-coached side and this seemed to inspire the boys to play some of the best football they have ever played. The first half was particularly exciting, with goals from Finn, Rory, Kyle and two from Cam, putting the boys 5-0 up at half time.
Newtown continued to chip away and play good football, resulting in them winning the third quarter 1-0 from a very well worked goal. But our boys took the ascendancy again in the 4th quarter with Cam completing his hat-trick to complete an 8-2 win. The score doesn’t really tell the full story as it was an extremely close and well-matched game. But thanks to some very clinical finishing from the Scorpions, victory was ours.
Overall it was a really great start to getting ready for the new season in September. Thanks again to Newton for their hospitality and we wish them all the best for the coming season.
