In the first match of the year for our Etone Football Academy, our teams have once again soared to success. Despite always putting up a strong defence the team worked hard to achieve a landslide victory. Check out the match report below:
Cup – Match Report ⚽️⚽️⚽️
Etone started the game well pressing high and putting a lot of pressure on Port Vale pinning them into their own half. Within 2 minutes of play, a forward pass meant that Rowley went on to score taking the ball around the keeper. Shortly following Stenton hit home in the 5th minute and Etone – WBA really put a stamp on the game that they meant business.
The energy and willingness to play forwards backed up by good pressure to win 1st and 2nd balls meant Etone -WBA were in total control of the game.
Half time: Port Vale 0-4 Etone – WBA
As the second half started, a goal from Vorajee in the 46th minute continued Etone’s total dominance and ruthlessness in front of the goal.
A special mention to Sutton who scored from the penalty spot with a cleanly struck shot into the bottom left corner. The first years who stepped up were impressive and have continued to show real signs of confidence and a positive attitude towards the footballing side of the programme.
Exciting times ahead providing all players remain humble and hungry.
