Ksha's Killer strike gets Rams rolling.


Rams starting line up: Lewis (GK), Callum (RB), Mitchell S & Brad (CB), Josh (LB), Tom and Ksha (DM), Ben (RM), Kian (LM), Charlie (AM), Harry (Att). Subs: Mitchell L, Rhys, Mia.

With Thomas having an injury during the warm up and not to be rsisked, a forced defensive change was needed at the start of the game and it was Brad that was to drop in at CB alongside Mitchell S. flanked by Josh and Callum as full backs, both of whom had great games today and defended brilliantly. By Far Josh's best game so far this season.

The game was pretty even for the opening 15 mintues, but then Rams started to get in the more attacking positions. A brilliant whipped outswinging corner on 17 minutes was cleared to just outside the edge of the opposition area where ksha hit it first time and it flew into the top right corner of the goal. A real goal of the season contender! 1-0.

Rams then got a bit sloppy as the half wore on. Some ill discipline in the defence led to Rams getting caught out twice as Alrewas broke our line and although Lewis was quick off his line the Alrewas players worked it bewteen them to slot the first home and then on the second occassion as Lewis advanced the Colts striker lobbed it over to make it 2-1 to Alrewas.

Half time: Colts 2- 1 Rams.

Mia slotted in at centre back alonside Mitchell S and this gave us a lot more soilidty and discipline at the back.

Rams drew level shortly into the second half. A good strike by Tom was not held by the Colts keeper and Mitchell L was there following up to smash it home. 2-2.

Rams were now playing the better football and the shape looked better. Harry was a constant threat up front and his and Toms energy all over the pitch was fantastic today. Harry got his reward when a seemingly powerless left footed shot wormed its way under the unlucky Colts keeper and trickled into the net. 3-2 Rams.

Rams completed the scoring with a good goal from Brad, smashing home from 15 yards out to kill the game off.

Full time: Colts 2 - 4 Rams.


A great improvement today in shooting from distance and following in the shots. Some good football at times too. Josh was solid in defence today, Rhys broke things up in the middle. Toms energy and passion are great to see and Harry a constant threat up front. Not to mention Ksha, a cracking strike to open the scoring and not afraid to get a head on it and keep things simple!
