Match Report
Shiplake College 2nd XI vs  Cokethorpe School
On: Wednesday, 09 Jan 2019
Venue: at Home

Shiplake started the game well with a high tempo. After just one training session, it was encouraging observing the boys, from three different year groups, getting to know each other's styles, abilities and areas for development. The first goal was a peach. James Burgess drove down the wing, passed inside to Luke Theodorou and his left foot chip-lob drifted into the right corner. The second half began very well and Billy Bryan fired into the roof of the net following Bansi's inside pass. The opposition looked beaten at this point and a further three goals from Gibson (penalty), Bryan's second - a header from a corner, then Burgess, after neat play from O'Hare. Whenever we were tested, Taylor and MOM Neale cleared up and were strong throughout. It finished 5-0 but probably could have been more.
