Match Report
Reading Blue Coat School 6th XI vs  Halliford School Boys-U18D
On: Wednesday, 16 Jan 2019
Venue: Away

Halliford 4th XI 2 - 2 RBCS 6th XI

Scorers: Ryan Woolmington, Anand Dave

Celebrity mention - Ryan Woolmington - showed composure and precision on the ball to create many attacking opportunities whilst also grabbing a long range goal for himself.

Despite taking a last kick of the game equaliser from Anand, this was a game that the 6ths dominated in terms of both possession and territory. Captain Luke Almeida, Theo Patrault, Ajay Johal and Ayan Chatterjee all went close to scoring but last ditch defending from Halliford saw their goal remain intact until Ryan’s 25m strike.

Inexplicably, Halliford then scored twice, both from defensive lapses,which was a shame as both Charlie Cox and James Penrose had excellent games at the heart of defence and had we taken our chances, the game would have been out of sight.

As it was though, another foraging run from Ryan saw the ball half cleared to Anand who fired it into the roof of the net for a deserved point.

A massive league clash at home with the 7ths lies ahead next week, it looks like the whole school will be off timetable to watch the extravaganza on the 1st XI pitch.
