Football Report – October 2021 (‘You can’t win them all’)

12 Nov 21

Mr Davis reports on this week’s football, celebrating the game despite the defeat: 

There’s no disgrace in losing to one of the best school football teams I’ve ever seen, and our 5-0 defeat by Norwich last Tuesday at Redmayne Fields was testament to that.  Every man knew their job, but Norwich made the pitch huge in attack with willing runners everywhere making the pitch tiny when defending, with sharp tackling and snapping all over the park. 

Yes, Woodbridge were slow to start after a long coach journey, but we played with courage and determination, and we had goalkeeper Sam to thank throughout the match for protecting the goal and keeping the score line down.   

Despite our disappointment at losing the match, we played well, observed some great tactics and will certainly learn and develop from the experience, which is what playing is about.  The game was superbly refereed by former England International Dean Ashton, a member of Norwich coaching staff and we all left the match agreeing – life is always better with football than without, no matter what the score!
