U8 Navys shade another tight battle with the Reds

Solihull Navy’s secured a thrilling victory over local rivals Solihull Reds in a highly anticipated derby. Despite early nerves, Dunners’ fantastic goal put the Navy’s in front, followed by a brilliant team move leading to James doubling the lead. Brookesy’s stellar defensive work and Poulters’ impressive keeping kept the Reds at bay.

Archie, named Man of the Match, showcased creativity for the Navy’s, while Pricey’s dynamic presence on the pitch included crucial tackles. The Navy’s momentarily switched off before halftime, allowing the Reds to score two goals and narrow the gap.

Determined in the second half, the Navy’s displayed grit, with SoN winner, James and Pricey notching two additional goals. But this was a team performance with Managers player of the match Brookesy, being involved in everything, whilst Poulters being an impressive sidekick.

Despite a strong comeback attempt from the Reds, Archie’s “Martinez”-style keeping and a resilient team effort secured a victory for Solihull Navy in a memorable match.

Well done boys.. we’re all proud!
