Under 11 Boys’ Football Match v Richard Coates-Match Report 
Cragside U11 boys resumed their league campaign this week with the team visiting Richard Coates Middle on Thursday afternoon. Unfortunately the match did not go their way and they were caught on the break several times in the first half with Richard Coates' attackers proving clinical in front of goal. A mixture of impressive forward play and some bad luck at the back for Cragside gave the home team a commanding half time lead. A few words with the boys at half time, and a change of shape, seemed to dust the cobwebs off and the boys turned in a much better performance in the second half. Joseph Caswell won the ball deep in his own half with a robust challenge then sent the ball through the Sam Metcalf who beat the defender for pace before slotting the ball past the goalkeeper. The second half was a much better performance with the boys showing a lot of determination. The team are raring to go for their next game.
