National Cup R1 Y10 vs Lady Manners

Score: 10 - 1         Star Player:  Eshan Mohammed 

After the disappointment of narrowly losing both local cup finals and getting knocked out of the national cup in an agonizing penalty shoot-out, it would be interesting to see how Meadowhead’s Year 10 boys would respond to their first match of the following season. On the second Tuesday back at school, Meadowhead hosted Lady Mannners School, from Bakewell in the first round of the national cup.

But Meadowhead were looking sharp, hungry and determined to win. After just two minutes, a beautiful team-move finished up with Louis Hutchinson putting the ball in the back of the net only for him to be flagged offside, but already, things were looking good.

Within ten minutes, Meadowhead had taken the lead through Harry Grimmer and from then on, they didn’t look back. Harry Grimmer ended up grabbing 4 goals, Aaron Mushet scored twice, Tom Moreton scored one, Jack Morton scored once and Louis Hutchinson scored twice in an emphatic victory with only one negative: not keeping a clean sheet. But if you are 10-0 in the lead, it doesn’t matter too much to concede a goal! Man of the match went to Ehsan Mohammed for his relentless work rate which resulted in an incredible 5 assists!
