Newhall Rams hit Bromley for six!!


Rams lined up with Lewis in goal, a back four comprising of Josh (LB), Mitchell (RB), Mia and Callum (CB). Tom just in front, Ben on the right, David on the left, Alex as attacking midfield, Thomas and Harry upfront.

Newhall started very brightly and got onto the score sheet within a couple of minutes! A great passing move found Alex on the right who powered his way into the box and let loose a great shot that the keeper managed to parry and Josh latched onto to give Newhall the lead.

Bromley replied straight away with a slick passing move that carved open our defence and shot past the onrushing Lewis.

This seemed to spur the Rams on and we saw some great passing football. Tom was distributing the ball well out wide and causing the defence problems with his lethal long throws. Thomas and Harry linked up well upfront and had some neat interchanges between them. Alex took the ball out wide to the right and managed to beat the keeper from what appeared to be an impossible angle!

Newhall were creating loads of chances and opening up the Bromley defence with some lovely slick passes! Ben was distributing the ball well from the right and providing some lovely crosses. David was battling well down the left wing and Josh was just behind him to mop up if Bromley did get through.

Mia despatched the perfect corner from the right, which Alex met with a powerful header past the keeper.

Adam came on to replace David on the left and Brett replaced Harry upfront

Mia and Callum were mopping any potential attacks well in the centre of defence. Lewis was on hand to kick long from the defensive back pass.

Further Newhall attacks saw Thomas on the end of Mia’s cross that he met with perfect timing to smash past the keeper.

Mitchell and Callum both were working hard at the back and tackling well to prevent any further attacks. A long kick by Lewis bounced over the Bromley defence that Alex pounced on and coolly slotted it past the onrushing keeper.

Half time: Rams 5 - 1 Abbots Bromley.

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

The second half saw Newhall continue with some great passing football. We were the first to every ball and distributing it well. Thomas, Brett and Alex were all getting lots of opportunities in front of goal and Josh was getting forward at every opportunity! Adam was working well down the left wing and passing well to the attackers.

Lewis was on hand to deny Bromley a second by stopping a couple of one on ones with some brave goalkeeping.

Alex weaved his way past 3 defenders to cross over which Ben shot and the keeper parried. Thomas shot the rebound the ball past the keeper.

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

Full time: Newhall 6 - 1 Abbots Bromley
