Match Report 12 April 2006 – U13s

‘ ENGLAND 4 v FINLAND 1’

 Calverton 4 v OLS 1

A day in history for the Colts, for Calverton, and for the lads – a great football match – and what a fantastic group of people, both players, parents, coaches – indeed everyone.

OLS (Oulun Luistin Seura) had already played the Academy sides from Notts County and Nottingham Forest, but the visit to Calverton was their first taste of ‘club’ football in England.

The match itself was played in a fantastic spirit by both teams, and was a contrast of two very different styles of football.

OLS played some lovely passing football, and usually played it out from the back, whereas Calverton were content to let their opponents do that, whilst pressurising the ball, soak up a little pressure, and then hit quickly on the break. And that was pretty much the pattern throughout.

Calverton’s back four were immense on the day, as Sam Hammond, Alex Wilson, Tom Haffenden, and Lewis Wilson didn’t put a foot wrong throughout the game, and restricted the visitors to half chances and long range efforts.

 

 

OLS didn’t seem to be able to cope with the pace and strength up front of Alex Troke, and the pace of Ryan Grantham in the second half.

   
   

The early exchanges were about even, with Calverton doing a lot of chasing the ball, without really getting hold of possession, whilst the visitors seemed content to keep hold of possession, without really gaining too much territorial advantage. Calverton’s patience was rewarded when a ball was played up to Alex Troke, and he calmly despatched the opener to give Calverton the lead after about 10 minutes. By then, the OLS keeper had already been called upon to make a couple of saves from ‘Mr Trokey’.

However, OLS pushed the Colts onto the back foot, and a good covering tackle from Tom Haffenden gave OLS a corner. In a crowded penalty area, a striker somehow managed to get to the ball first, surrounded by defenders, and placed his shot wide of the keeper to bring the scores level.

 
 

Within 5 minutes, it was Troke again who caused the damage to OLS as he was brought down for a penalty after about 20 minutes and it was he who stepped up to double his own tally, and give Calverton the lead once more.

As half-time approached, some good build up play from the Colts with a slick passing move of their own, found Levi Melaugh in a shooting position, and he fired his left foot effort low into the far corner.

 
 

The second half saw OLS put the Colts on the back foot for the first 10 minutes of the restart, but yet again, the Colts caught the visitors out as Ryan Grantham sprinted clear of the last defender to score a fourth goal for Calverton.

With just a couple of minutes remaining, OLS won a penalty, but unfortunately failed to capitalise on the chance as the shot was placed wide.

   
   

Final score 4-1. And a huge thank you must go to Lesley Troke for organising this fantastic opportunity for the lads, as they are the only club side to play a full match against OLS on their short tour.

   

 

And once more, a very big thank you must go to our visitors for helping to make the occasion one to remember for all the players, and the very large crowd who watched the game.

Scorers – Alex Troke (2), Levi Melaugh, Ryan Grantham
