9th September 2017: Wideopen Wanderers v Hazlerigg Juniors

The Under 11s kicked off the new season with a local derby, away to Hazlerigg Juniors.  After a delay to the kick off caused by problems with getting the goals up, captain for the day Ben proudly led the team onto the pitch, with the team keen to build on some successful performances in the Summer League.  However, they were soon on the back foot, as a very strong Hazlerigg team launched wave after wave of attack, with the defence having to stand firm, and Ashton being called upon to make a number of smart saves.  The team had to be rejigged, after an early injury forced Will off, with Joe S coming onto the wing, and Cameron playing an unfamiliar role in the centre of midfield. 

It was from a rare Wideopen attack that Hazlerigg opened the scoring, launching a quick counter attack that ended with a good cross and smart finish from close range.  To their credit, the away side kept their heads up, played some lovely passing football, and were rewarded just before half time when a good ball through by Joe Lowes provided the opportunity for Cameron to get his season's goalscoring tally underway.

The second half was a much more even affair, with both teams having great opportunities to take the lead.  A combination of some fine reaction saves from Ashton and some desperate last ditch defending prevented Hazlerigg from scoring, while at the other end Cameron and Joe went close.  A fine run down the wing by Luke was stopped by a rather crude challenge, and from the resulting freekick, Cameron rattled the crossbar.

All in all, it was a very encouraging start to the season, and both teams deserve credit for both the quality of the play and the spirit in which the game was played.
