Sunday 2nd March, SPL3; FC Sunbury 1 Pirbright Premier U10s 1
A solid and determined effort from Pirbright U10s this Sunday lunchtime earned the boys a thoroughly merited point at Sunbury. Against a team who had outplayed the lads for much of the return fixture back in the Autumn Pirbright underlined their improvement this season in a far more even contest.
A goalless first half had seen opportunities at both ends on a bumpy and uneven pitch. Shortly after the break Sunbury went closest when they rattled the crossbar from close range. Then the Jonts escaped down the middle and saw his prodded finish creep agonisingly wide. Pirbright finally made the breakthrough when Asa’s shot from the edge of the area found the net. Sunbury exerted considerable pressure and equalised with ten minutes left. But the boys maintained composure, shape and discipline to see the game out and record an excellent away point.
Adam was Pirbright’s Man of the Match with a typically whole-hearted shift on the left side of defence and there were excellent performances all round. Well done boys: back to their battling best and some good football too (particularly on the counter attack).
