Match Report
Reading Blue Coat School 1st XI vs  Reading School
On: Wednesday, 04 Mar 2020
Venue: at Home

On a pitch that surprisingly retained its surface as it bucketed down, we followed our seemingly usual profligacy in front of goal. Thus, instead of being 4 or 5 up, we conceded an inevitable poor goal to go in 1-0 down at half-time after Marcus Baines had already made a terrific save.

This was put right within a few minutes of the restart, with two quick goals from Will Tate and Josh Harris, followed by another from Josh shortly after.

Keeping the game interesting for the neutral, Reading pushed forward and scored a second before Sam Hawes, who had a great game, scored his first Blue Coat 1st XI goal.

As the game opened up, we created lots of further chances, and Reading managed a few of their own before we exchanged penalties, both scored, to end the game at 5-3.
