Match Report
Berkhamsted School Boys-U13A vs  Orley Farm School
On: Wednesday, 11 Sep 2019
Venue: at Home

Orley Farm visited for the U13A's first fixture of the season at Kitchener's Field, with the squad challenged to revert to playing 9-a-side football. The boys started strongly and were ruthless in attack, regularly getting in behind the opposition defence down both wings before squaring to finish. Having been 6-0 ahead at half time, the team will be disappointed to have let standards drop in the second half; conceding two goals after periods of sloppy play. Berkhamsted finished well, however, with another fine team effort converted by Hugo Senior. Noah Head takes man of the match for some sharp one touch football in midfield and a couple of outstanding finishes. Today's fixture was a good opportunity to experiment with shape and personnel ahead of Saturdays's tournament and we now head to Orley Farm with a clear idea of how we intend to play.
