Under 9’s Maintain 100% Record

Sunday 2nd September – Quinns  0-3  ECU
ECU under 9’s passed one of their most difficult tests to date with flying colours defeating Quinns under 10’s on the road with a comprehensive performance. This result maintains their 100% record this season (played 17 games, 17 wins) and they go into this weekends game with a great a chance of extending that record when they play Perth at home in the final game of the season. ECU were always on top in this match and the pleasing thing is that not only are they winning games against older opposition, the style of football they are playing is a joy to watch for boys so young. Whereas Quinns were just relying on the long ball, ECU were passing the ball around and creating chances and the home goalkeeper did well to keep our boys at bay making several important saves.

Eventually the breakthrough came when Daniel Faichney sent over a near post corner for Aiden Coyne to time his run perfectly to head home with a superb header. Almost immediately Daniel finished well from a good pass from the impressive Matthew Dench, who was outstanding in the first half.

Half Time – Quinns  0-2  ECU

The second half was a carbon copy of the first with ECU looking composed on the ball and pegging the home team back into their own half for long periods. When Quinns did break, the defence of Euan Blair, Ben Ford and Joe Pollard dealt with any threat with poise and efficiency whilst going forward ECU were creating chances at will. Massimo Bresciani was excellent on the right wing in the second half and had numerous efforts on goal, Regan Jordan, Lewis Edwards and Blair McLatchie were driving the away team forward from midfield and up front, both Reece Corrigan and Harry Fletcher were a constant threat. The deserved third goal finally arrived with Daniel scoring his second of the match with a good finish.

Full Time – Quinns  0-3  ECU

As mentioned earlier, the boys host Perth on Sunday 9th September in their final game at 9.00am KO, it would be a marvellous achievement if they can win their 18th game, the players and especially the coach Brian should be very pleased and proud of this season so far. The standard of their football has been a joy to watch and they are a close knit team with tremendous spirit. Good luck against Perth boys.
