Match Report: Druids U13s vs Oswestry Town

A great occasion for our U13s who played their first match at 11 a-side against Oswestry Town FC. An exciting, competitive match that Druids won 3-2!

The game started and both teams were taking their time to settle with some great passing being shown from both sides. It was a very evenly matched first half until 2 mins before the break. Druids took the lead with a well placed strike into the bottom corner from our fullback. Going 1-nil up into halftime the lads were buzzing to have broken the deadlock. Into the second half druids started where they left off and pressed aggressively with determination and hunger. Their hard work payed off when on a counter attack our winger crossed the ball and our opposite winger headed it in for 2-nil. We then hit them hard again and went 3-nil up. However, Oswestry replied immediately with an amazing goal into the top corner to make it 3-1, then put on the pressure and intercepted our centre half and ran through to make it 3-2, making the last 5 mins a real pressure cooker. But the lads prevailed and saw out the win. A big thanks to Oswestry Town for coming down and giving us a competitive and exciting match!

More than just a football club
