OA’s U10 welcomed old friends and rivals from Bishop’s Stortford and offered marginally better weather than the horizontal rain the last time we visited the Blue and Whites at Silver Leys. Some competitive matches against five OAs squads, and a relentless schedule for our guests. Players on both sides really working together for space. All those drills and small sided games over the months paying dividends as we break out of the January wilderness into the final three months of the season. As the coaches summed up at the end, we took a lot from each other and a Sunday morning in competition is better than training any day.
