SJFA U14 vs Westwood Park Invaders on Saturday 10th November was a game to watch. SJFA were elated after their win the week before and were ready to hit the pitch. Although the opposition this week were bigger and stronger, we were optimistic.

As the whistle blew, SJFA were on the move like lions looking for it’s prey. For the first 10 mins, we controlled the game. A nice through ball from Husayn Yahya to Hassan Merali Dewji lead to a chance on goal, unfortunately unlucky. We had a few chances at goal but we were unlucky.

After the first 10 mins our confidence dropped a little and we let in 4 goals.

As the half time whistle blew, we all ran into our team talk with the coaches. A couple of one-twos had us moving up the field. Mohammed Mehdi Panju closing the defenders down. Jameel Laying the wingers off for a break. Zia and Husayn Yahya keeping cool, controlling the midfield like Iniesta. Shaahid heading the ball when they tried the ball over the top, classic defending. Ali Hadi being a good captain and vocal. Aliabbas playing like Pickford throughout the game. We played a good second half only letting one goal in.

Man of the Match Zia & Husayn Yahya.

Thank you to our coaches and the parents for the support and encouragement.

Hassan Dewji
