Easingwold Town Football Club Under 9's - Season to date.

With five of last season’s successful side returning this year, coaches Richard Wells and Clive Rhodes were confident of a good showing in a series of 10 friendly games prior to Christmas, the results of which would determine which division the teams would play competitive football in come the New Year. The first game for the Hawks saw them comprehensively outplay a newly formed Strensall side that led to a comfortable 6-1 victory, not to be outdone the Harriers ran riot putting 12 past Strensall, conceding 1 in return. Rarely is an individual player singled out for praise, but in the friendly game that followed the Harriers again won comprehensively, leading to Jake Rhodes scoring 14 goals on the day!  The following week we travelled to Pocklington with the Hawks playing some excellent free flowing football that led to an 11-1 win. The Harriers found things more difficult going down 4-3 in a very tight match. For our first home game we entertained York R.I. and it appeared that all the Hawks had been out nightclubbing as a big and strong R.I. team won 3-0 over a very lacklustre side. The Harriers however, bounced back to win a closely fought tussle 3-2.  The following week we were on our travels again, the Hawks keeping their first clean sheet of the season, beating Stamford Bridge 4-0, the Harriers matching them with a 5-1 victory in a game they always controlled. Last year both sides lost heavily to Heworth so their visit to Easingwold was seen as a litmus test for the boys. In a tremendous game of football the Hawks just edged it 1-0, but probably deserved to win more convincingly, the Harriers did, playing some lovely football in a 7-0 win which demonstrated the strength in depth that the sides have.  Next up for the boys was a trip to unbeaten Rawcliffe. The Hawks began brightly, but against a big and strong side appeared to be up against it when they went 1-0 down midway through the first half, however  two well crafted goals saw us go in 2-1 up at the break and 2 further goals led to a rather flattering 4-1 margin of victory. The Harriers found the going much harder and though they battled hard they went down 3-1 in a close match. After six matches the Hawks record of played 6, won 5, lost 1, goals for 26, goals against 6, and the Harriers record of played 6, won 4, lost 2, goals for 31, goals against 11 gives cause to hope that with further games against Brooklyn, Fulford, Haxby and Pickering to come, that if we can continue to play with the skill, determination and teamwork shown to date that a place in the first division is very achievable. Both teams have had good support from an enthusiastic set of parents and grandparents, and have played skilful and positive football resulting in 105 goals being scored and only 33 conceded, Importantly they have also shown the appropriate respect to the officials and opposition alike.
