Rams Rattle Red.


Starting line up: Lewis(GK), Call (RB), Mia and Mitchell S (CB), Mitchell L (LB), Tom and Rhys (DM), Ben (RM), Ksha (LM), Brad (AM), Harry (Att). Subs: Adam, Thomas, Kian.


Rams started really well after changing ends and kicking slightly down hill. They battled well early on and were unlucky not to open the scoring on 3 minutes when Tom picked it up on the edge of the area and hit a cracking shot that hit the left hand upright and came out. Rams really kept their shape well today and with Tom and Rhys in the middle just in front of the back four we looked solid in midfield.

Rams had all the chances first half. Mia hit a dracking effort from the half way line that troubled the keeper but he managed to back peddle and just keep it out.

The back four as a unit today were magnificant. Marshalled expertly by Mia, but Call and the Mitchells both played brilliantly too. Brad and Harry linked up well in attack and also had chances themselves to open the scoring. It was Brad in fact that did open the scoring towards the end of the half. A goalmouth scramble in the opposition box saw the ball fall to brad who hit it with his left and sent the keeper the wrong way.

Half time: Rams 1 - 0 Belvedere.

The half time team talk was easy as the Rams were playing brilliantly. Just keep doing the same.

Adam was on the left for Ksha and Kian on the right for Ben. Adam did really well today, winning his tackles and passing well too. Likewise Kian.

Belevedere got back in the game quite fortuitously, when a seemingly easy catch for Lewis squeezed through his otherwise again impeccable hands. 1-1.

In fact Lewis as always was outstanding and made some great saves second half.

Belvedere were now on the up and started to play the football that is the reason why they are top and unbeaten. Our defence was finally breached  with Belvedere breaking free on a couple of occasions to go one on one with Lewis with the opposition attackers slotting home. One from tight on the right.

Full time: Rams 1 - 3 Belvedere.

What a great performance today by the Rams. To go in at half time leading against the top team in the division was great and just deserved.

The performance and effort of the players in the last two games has been outstanding and the results do not reflect the way they have played.

Well played Rams and keep it up!
