Rams run rampant to give Woodville the blues!!


Rams lined up with Lewis in goal, a back four comprising of Josh, Leo, Mia and Callum. Tom just in front, Ben on the right, Rhys on the left, Alex as attacking midfield, Brett and Harry upfront.


Newhall started very brightly and got onto the score sheet with about 20 seconds on the clock! From the Newhall kick off Alex powered his way into the box and smashed it past the on rushing keeper.

From the restart Newhall won the ball back. Harry and Brett linking up well upfront. Alex took the ball out wide to the right and had a shot from what seemed an impossible angle that ended up in the top of the net.

Newhall were well in control now and winning every ball! It was good to see that we were heading the ball away when Woodville tried to attack. Tom was distributing the ball well from the back and found Alex with a pass on the right, which he despatched with his usual accuracy past the keeper! Making it 100 Newhall goals for Alex!!

Mia and Leo were mopping any potential attacks well in the centre of defence; Josh was caught pushing in the box on a rare Woodville attack down the left. Woodville were awarded a penalty and luckily it was shot wide of the left hand post.

Further Newhall attacks saw Brett on the end of a cross that he poked past the keeper. The powerful throws of Tom gave us good distribution down the wings and we were quickly advancing up the pitch. Josh and Callum both combined with headers that set Newhall back on the attack for Alex to tear through the defence and slot it past the keeper. (5-0)

Nothing was getting past Leo in defence and he was heading and clearing the ball well. Leo struck the ball over the Woodville defence for Alex to run onto who smashed past the keeper. Further marauding attacks saw Alex add to his tally making it 7 to the Rams!!

Half time : Newhall Rams 7 - 0 Woodville.

Second half Rams lined up with Lewis in goal, a back four comprising of Josh, Leo, Mia and Callum. Tom just in front, David on the right, Adam on the left, Alex as attacking midfield, Thomas and Harry upfront.

The second half saw Newhall take their foot off the gas, which let Woodville see more of the ball. It was a much closer contest second half and Woodville started to cause us a few problems at the back.

Lewis was called into action more and was beaten by a shot low to his right that he managed to get a hand on but could not prevent it going into the net.

Half way through the second half saw Tom replaced by Rhys after he was scythed down by a blatant late tackle.

Woodville got onto to the score sheet again after a cross was headed in by one of their giant players!

Newhall broke after the restart with attackers chasing Alex into the box who slotted it coolly past the keeper making it 8-2 to the Rams.

Well done to the Rams for an excellent performance today!!

Full time: Newhall Rams8 - 2 Woodville.

Player of the match today went to Leo. A real rock at the back. Great heading and all round defensive performance!
