Town EKYL U9s host Deal Town
No defender formation works for Town
As young players, who likes to be the defender or defenders when its cold and you are sat at the back with not much to do apart from maybe chat to the keeper or watch the game on the pitch next to you!! So we tried a NO defender formation, having two holding midfield players who were asked to push up quick but also drop into covering positions when needed, keeping the midfield tight to create space on the wings, as a coach it was good to see them having fun and the freedom to be creative. Best team performance this season so far!!!!.
Man of the Match went to Thiago, he was up and down the pitch and strong in possession.
Onto Folkestone next Saturday..........................
