Sunday 21st July – Nedlands Under 10’s  0-8  ECU Under 9’s
ECU under 9’s kept up their 100% winning record this season with a comfortable win against Nedlands on the banks of the Swan River. Due to the boys getting promoted some weeks ago and the vagaries of the fixture list, this was our second visit to UWA but nobody seemed to mind as it’s probably the most picturesque pitch in Perth. The boys having been on a three week break due to school holidays were still on their break for most of the first half as they seemed quite lethargic and didn’t have their normal energy. Half way through the half a great passing move down the left involving Matthew Dench and Daniel Faichney ended with Harry Fletcher scoring in true poaching fashion. It was soon 2-0 when Blair McLatchie finished from a corner. The boys had not played as well as they can but were still ahead at the break.

Half Time – Nedlands  0-2  ECU

After a chat with the coach, ECU went up to another level and were just too good for their opposition. The next part of this report may be boring to read as there was a procession of goals in a short space of time. Daniel made it 3-0 from a Regan Jordan cross, Reece Corrigan made it 4-0 with a shot through the keepers legs, Massimo Bresciani made it 5 with a thunderous finish after a goalmouth scramble, Reece scored his second and the teams sixth, there’s a pattern developing here and this is the longest sentence in the history of journalism. At this point the home team had not created a chance and more goals for ECU were inevitable. From a long Ben Ford pass, Harry finished with his usual coolness and Blair wrapped up the scoring near the end after another good passing move.

Full Time – Nedlands  0-8  ECU

Another great result from the boys, as mentioned earlier they have won every game this season, despite having been promoted and playing against older boys. Daniel also kept up his remarkable record of scoring in every match this season. It’s been very enjoyable to watch this year, not just because of the fact that they are winning but the brand of football they are playing for such a young team and they also seem to have a tremendous team spirit. Brian the coach must take a lot of credit for this. Well done boys, keep it going.
