12:33pm, Fri 17th May 2013
Another fantastic day of Football for our Football for All team, who again produced some fantastic results. The team constantly produce some fantastic football and teamwork on their way to these results. Below is a report from all of their games.
Representing Woking U13's:
Liam Paterson, Dylan Burgess, Ben Roberts, Dylan Varndell, Izzy Wallace and Henry Robson
Wandgas 4-3 Dylan x 3, Liam x 1 This was a very tight match as Wandgas would score and we would come right back to level it up. Liam scored the winning goal just near the end of the match.
Feltham 1-2 Ben R We were evenly matched in this game throughout the match but they squeaked a goal past us in the end.
Chelsea 5-0 Ben, Alfie x 3, Liam Alfie played on our team to allow more Chelsea players pitch time and that worked in our favour.... he scored a hat-trick. Ben scored a superb goal and Liam sealed the deal.
Fulham 0-1 We dominated the match but Fulham had a very large goal keeper who proved very hard to get around. Henry made 3 amazing saves as goalie.... one where he drove across the goal and tipped the ball wide of the goal as he stretched out.
Representing Woking Under 16 Championship
Ben Davies, Caithan Kimberling, Simon Cassidy, Adam Levett, Lewis Ashby, Marcus Levett, Matt Kimberling
Under 16 Championship
Sutton 4-2 Adam x 2, Lewis, Matt A fast start put Woking 2-0 within the first 5 minutes. Only thanks to the Sutton keeper did the score remain 2-0. Sutton then thought back scoring 2 in 4 minutes to leave the game all square with a minute to play. Adam then ran the length of the field to regain the lead before Matt scored immediately from the kick off.
Chelsea 3-1 Lewis x 2, Adam We were again 2-0 within 5 minutes, goals setup after strong runs from Matt and Marcus. Chelsea pulled one back and some great saves from Ben prevented a second. Marcus and Matt then linked up well to set up Lewis for the 3rd and final goal.
Abbey Rangers 1-0 Lewis We had not beaten Abbey in a number of previous fixtures. We changed tactics slightly for his game asking Marcus to worry more about defending then attacking. Neither side gave such away throughout the game. The only goal coming from a direct free kick with deflected wickedly past the wrong footed Abbey keeper.
Feltham 1-1 Simon We again started brightly with several chances but we seemed to have lost our eye for goal. Then from know where Simon hit a 20 yard volley which the keeper could only fingertip onto the post and in. Both teams had more chances to score but couldn’t take them. We then made a substitute and whilst the team re-adjusted Feltham broke to score their equaliser.
Representing Woking U16's (Premiership):
Harry Robson, Jonno Lehrter, James Hawkins, Charlie Jeeves, JJ Elgar & Alex Elgar
Under 16 Premiership
Wandgas 2-0 James, Alex We spoke before the games about the importance of starting them quickly. The team duly delivered. We hit the post 3 times in succession before Alex coolly slotted in past the mesmerised Wandgas keeper. More chances came and went before James sealed the win with a finally executed shot.
Guildford 3-0 Alex x 2 James Guildford normally provides a stiff test for our Woking Team and today was no exception. Although the score line is impressive the Guildford Team played their part in a good match. Alex and James combined nicely for the first two goals. Guildford came back into the game and Harry had to make 2 fine saves. Alex then put the game out of reach. This did not stop Guildford though and only the fine defensive work of Jono kept the score to nil.
Redhill 1-1 JJ Elgar Redhill always provide a tough test. The game looked deadlocked before JJ made a mazy run dribbling past two defenders before smashing the ball past the Redhill goalkeeper from what looked like an impossible, acute angle. The team were unlucky that a speculative strike managed to sneak past Harry for the game to end in a draw with the last kick of the match
Chelsea 2-0 James, Charlie J The result of this match was never in doubt - Harry was immense in goal and made great quality saves and interventions when necessary, Jonno and Charlie were rocks at the back, snubbing out any danger and then playing the ball to feet to transform defence into attack. James and JJ were powerhouses in the midfield linking play beautifully whilst putting in a shift, making important tackles. Alex ran their defence ragged with his excellent movement creating havoc in the Chelsea team and he was a constant threat. Charlie scored a screamer from 20 yards that settles nicely in the top corner. James then produced an even better strike striking a volley after a fine cross from Alex.
Representing Adult Championship
Harry Robson, Michael Sears, Paul Grout, Luke Brockaway, Lewis Ashby, Daniel Hill, Tom Shepard
Chelsea Blue 0-1 An early injury to Paul did not help us but Harry made some fine saves to keep the score respectable.
Surrey Yellows 0-1 After Pauls injury we seemed to lose our confidence and again struggled to find a breakthrough in this game.
Carshalton 1-0 Shelly Foster Shelly put in a great performance and finished it off with a well worked goal to restore some confidence in the team.
Feltham 0-1 Feltham are always a strong side to breakdown and this again proved to be the case despite the team putting in a strong performance.
Surrey Blues 1-0 Daniel The team were now starting to play some fantastic football which led to Daniel scoring the winning goal.
CMG 4-0 Paul G, Luke, Tom, Michael S It all came together in the final game. The team’s frustrations from earlier games all gone with this fine performance to round off a tough but enjoyable afternoon.
Representing Woking Adults League:
Charlie Jeeves, Ben Davies, Shelly Foster, Marc Grout, JJ Elgar, Matt Kimberling, Adam Levitt, James Hawkins, Charlie Sheridan, Marcus Levitt & Alex Elgar
Carshalton 2-0 Shelly, Alex We lost Marc quite early due to a persistent knee injury. He was at the heart of a great passing move for the first goal, involving most of the Woking Team before he received the ball back and made a strong run to the by line before pulling the ball back to Shelly who made no mistake with a strong finish. Woking dominated this league and this match was no exception. The game was settled by Alex who produced another stunning strike to score a great goal from outside the area.
Hounslow 2-0 Matt, Shelly The players took turns to be Woking goalkeeper and when necessary to help out the opposition. Woking were now without their talisman (Marc) but Shelly was now taking games by the scruff of their neck. Woking played some great passing football throughout and it was really pleasing on the see another great passing move create an opening for Matt who applied a clean finish with a fine left foot strike. Shelly had the final say in this game, scoring the goal for a comfortable Woking victory.
Hounslow 2-0 JJ, James The second game was again dominated by Woking. The first goal didn't take long to come. James produced a great pass out of defence finding Alex who then went on a run past defenders before combining with his brother JJ, who smashed the ball into the net. Then for good measure Woking scored again - Alex took a short corner to JJ who beat a defender who then released the ball, sensibly to James who had found himself some space and he then in typical fashion applied a controlled shot past their keeper.
Feltham 3-0 Alex x 2, James Within seconds of this game kicking off, Alex found himself one on one with the Feltham keeper. The Feltham Goalie is not very tall but is very good.. Alex produced a sublime chip over the keeper's head, 1 - 0 Woking. A few minutes later the same thing happened, surely there couldn't be a repeat? There was, Alex chipped the keeper for a second time, 2 - 0 Woking! The third was threatened for some time before JJ showed great footwork past the defenders before lashing the ball past the bewildered goalkeeper!
Woking 2-2 Alex, JJ The Woking players were split into two evenly matched teams on what was quite a big pitch. They all worked hard and produced a good quality serious game which (fairly) ended all square. Both of our teams played some good football with some great inter-play resulting in some neat finishes.
Carshalton 2-0 JJ x 2 Another strong Woking performance produced another commanding win. The opposition had no answer to Woking's power and footballing ability. JJ scored two great goals with powerful shots.
Feltham 1-1 Alex As Woking had dominated their previous games it was decided that Feltham could play with an extra player and also use some of their Championship players. This produced a closer game but Woking were still on, top carving out some fine opportunities before Feltham broke away and scored a goal. The young Woking players were starting to tire after a long day’s football. To the Woking players' credit though they kept their composure and retained their control of the game. Another Woking attack produced desperate Feltham defending and when they brought down Shelly it was a clear penalty. Alex stepped up and struck a sweet shot from the penalty spot into the top left hand corner of the net, giving the keeper no chance.
