FOOTBALL – WOODBRIDGE 1ST XI DREW WITH NORWICH 1ST XI 3 – 3

29 Nov 18
Norwich have a strong reputation for school football within the region and so the early formation and game-plan was to see to our defensive duties first and foremost and hopefully score on the break. This tactic worked well as we soaked up the early pressure and our opponents became increasingly frustrated by our resolute back-four of Matty, Louis, Danny and Gonzalo. Ali and Tom, playing in front of them as two holding midfielders, were sharp and strong in the challenge and Charles and Jake on the wings both had industrious performances. We sneaked a goal but then the cardinal error was not to see the lead out to half-time and we found ourselves heading into the break 2 – 1 down. Norwich really grew into the game at this point and extended their lead; many teams would have capitulated further at this point but Woodbridge showed grit and determination to mount a comeback. Seb nicked one back for us before adding to our tally, getting on the end of a sumptuous move begun by the ever-skilful Joe. At 3 – 3 both sides had excellent chances to take the win; Norwich found Harry on top form between the Woodbridge posts and the Norwich ‘keeper was equal to everything we threw at him. An excellent game played in a combative spirit was enjoyed by everyone.
