16 Dec 2018 - Harrow Youth - Under 8

Larkspur Rovers Red



Academy U-8


Last match in 2018 was very tough game. The opposition were a  good team and they’ve had one quality player. We struggled with that player until the end but I can say it was a good experience for our boys. We can’t change the opposition but we can change how we are. How to play with the teammate will be the key point of the next year.
I’ve been working for 1v1 skills for 2 month. Still not good enough to be honest, they  improved their technical skills as well as physical movement.
From next year, we’ll try to get the small unit play especially 2v2. Based on the individual skills, they can improve about good decision making, more combination, and better communication.
As a reflection of this year, I got one of the big target, which is to absorb the football even more. we have a training only once a week but they come every training to become a better player.  The next stage is not playing  95%, must be 100%. It will be a  hard challenge but we have a good team. Let’s get it together.
In conclusion I’m very happy to see many improvements ON and OFF the pitch. Even the small things I want you all to be more confident, and face the difficulties!
Thank you very much for all your support to this team
