Football Match Report – FBS vs Dulwich Prep (A & B teams)
After meeting outside the clubhouse the FBS year 8 A team made their way to the first team pitches. We were all nervous about the game but we were excited for kick-off. We knew it would be a tough game especially as we were missing three key players.
FBS had a lot of the early possession and were looking good. Nazmul, who was on his debut for the A team, had a long shot from outside the box and was unlucky not to see his shot hit the back of the net. Soon after Sidrit scored the first goal for FBS.
FBS 1-0 DPL
Less than ten minutes later a shot from Ayoub was deflected into the back of their net. It was Ayoub’s first goal for the A team in only his second game.
FBS 2-0 DPL
FBS kept possession and were still playing well. It took a while for the next goal to come, but eventually it came through Sidrit scoring his second goal of the game with an excellent finish.
FBS 3-0 DPL
Dulwich Prep had a few counter attacks but the defence dealt with it well. Until late in the first half they had a free kick and their striker finished it with a header.
FBS 3-1 DPL
Not long passed after DPL’s goal when Sidrit completed his hat-trick within the first half.
FBS 4-1 DPL
At half time Sidrit came off after an excellent game to let Zac Flynn have a turn up front, he was on his debut as well.
FBS were unlucky to let in an early goal in the second half.
FBS 4-2 DPL
FBS continued to attack and Gabriel and Seni made lots of good runs down the wings with Harvey and Shaeden controlling the centre. Zac nearly scored on his debut aswell. FBS were disallowed a goal for an offside but it didn’t matter because we soon scored another from an brilliant finish from Josh Hayley.
FBS 5-2 DPL
DPL had some good attacks at the end and would have scored but the defence handled them right until the end, and didn’t let any more goals past them.
Overall it was a great team effort and everyone was proud of their performance, and now we can’t wait for the league to start again.
Fulham Boys B vs Dulwich Prep B Match Report
It was a great game from start to finish; both teams gave excellent performances showing great skill and ability. After some great tackling by Fulham and a lovely through ball by Kyle, Owen was able to pound a lovely angled shot into the goal putting Fulham one nil up only two minutes into the match.
Motivated by the goal and of course with the help of the great enthusiast Bobby the team dominated the rest of the half. The team had lovely chemistry and carried on creating chances which should have led to some great goals. This would have occurred if it wasn’t down to Dulwich’s awesome keeper who was having a great game clearing the ball again and again.
Dulwich also had a few close chances but with the solid Fulham defence and great goalkeeping from Mohammed, Bobby and Ray, the team managed to keep the ball from hitting the back of the net.
Despite the great goalkeeping, just before half time, Dulwich managed to get a goal back. The ball just slipping off Mohammed’s fingertips. Even after this turn of events captain Harry got the team together and the momentum stayed with FBS.
The halftime whistle blew. At the break it was 1-1.
Thankfully there was the idea of rolling subs giving everyone the chance to have a good game. Both teams gave it their all in the second half with counter attack after counter attack. Fulham dominated the play working the Dulwich defence with close shots. However, on a certain counterattack created by the great Dulwich keeper they managed to score. Fulham pushed with everything they had, winning corners, throw ins and free kicks. A very good ball from a free kick by Louis nearly got Kyle a lovely headed goal. Despite the constant bombardment the final whistle blew with no Fulham goal. The final score was 2-1 Dulwich. After a great game from both teams everyone was able to go away heads held high all knowing they had a great game. It was rounded off by Dulwich providing sausage rolls and tasty caked putting the end to a great morning.
