Yr7 Boys Football

The year 7 boys football team continued their impressive start to the football season with a 4-1 league and cup double fixture victory over Erdington Academy on Monday night. The squad selected for the game was:

Asim Khan
James Bond
Conrad Smith
Layton Overton
Dylan Jones
Rio Grant
Andrew Preedy
Fallou Seck
Osman Ali
Luis Soares-Xisto
Dawud Rehman
Khalid Abdi
Ben Bourne

This squad saw Ben, Layton and Dawud making their NBA debuts for the team.

NBA were off to a lightening quick start with 3 very early goals from Luis, Ali and Rio. The team played some excellent football to create all 3 goals and in reality their play should have seen them 5/6 up. Erdington continued to push NBA and they got the credit their play deserved with an excellent free kick hitting the top corner from a 20 yard free kick making the score 3-1. NBA were shocked back into action and they added a fourth before half time with a well taken finish from Andrew.

The second half was a hard fought battle and both teams struggled with the failing light and very few chances were created in the second half. The game finished 4-1 to NBA and the boys move onto the 3rd round of the cup and pick up 3 points for the league so an excellent victory all round.

Man of the Match- Ali Osman.
