Robins U7 v Wims 11

Decent team performance for the 1st home game of 2018

Today the boys were pitting their wits against Wims 11, in an afternoon kick off at the Home of football, Lawns Primary School. In all honestly the boys started slowly today, probably a result of indulging too much over the festive period, I\'m sure the coaches will work this out of the lads in the coming weeks!

Our team sponsor, Jason Griffiths from Swindon Property Group stepped in to ref the game today, as our normal referee Harry Woods had prior arrangements. The Wims 11 boys started well, they had some big strong lads who were not afraid to put in a challenge. Ryan was tested early in the game, but he was equal to the powerful shot from the Wims 11 striker. The boys looked a bit apprehensive in the first few minutes, but their nerves were relaxed when Louie found some space on the right-hand side of the pitch, dropped his shoulder to beat his man and fired a screamer beyond the Wims 11 goalie. William was evenly matched with the opposing winger, and they had some excellent battles, but William\'s sheer determination and ability to run with the ball set up the next goal. Johnny played a cross field pass to William, William ran with pace and power down the wing and laid the ball back to Louie, who swept the ball into the back of the net. What a lovely team goal. Freddie was being tested in defence, but with the support of his wingers and ever reliable goalie, he managed to prevent the Wims 11 lads from scoring in the 1st quarter.

The second quarter began with several changes being made for both teams, but it continued to be a very competitive encounter. Manni was running tirelessly up front, chasing everything down, and he got his just rewards, when Timon played a diagonal ball across the pitch and Manni fired a fierce shot into the bottom corner. Xavi was showcasing his repertoire of skills in the middle of the park, and after beating his man with some \"Xavi magic\" on the wing, he fired the ball across the goal and Manni timed his run perfectly to finish into the back of the net. The Wims boys were having their fair share of possession, and were starting to put some pressure on the Robins goal. Sonny was having an awesome game in defence, and he kept the Robins in the game at times with his ability to tackle the opposing player, and then play an inch perfect pass to his team mates. In fact, it was Sonny who set up the next goal, Ryan passed the ball to Sonny, who after beating his man laid a lovely through ball to Timon, and Tim rifled the ball beyond the Wims 11 goalie. The next goal was scored by Xavi, after Manni passed the ball across the goal, and Xavi dinked the ball into the back of the net. Wims 11 scored the final goal of the quarter, with their powerful midfielder running through the Robins back line and he just beat Ryan at the far post.

The final two quarters were much closer, with only 1 goal being scored by Louie in the third and no goals being scored in the final quarter. Louie\'s hattrick was made by Johnny on the right-hand wing, his perseverance enabled him to beat 2 Wims lads and he just managed to poke the ball through to Louie, who scored from a seemingly impossible angle. Freddie played in a more offensive role in the final quarter and was unlucky to see a couple of his shots being saved by the excellent Wims goalie. Final mention of the match report goes to Sonny, who somehow cleared the ball off the line to prevent Wims from scoring a goal in the fourth quarter.

The ref blew the whistle for full time and both sets of lads shook hands and congratulated each other. The game was played in the right spirit by both teams, and the opposition should be commended for their behaviour and sportsmanship.

Robins U7 v Highworth

Robins just about on top after most challenging game of the season.

The lads played against a very strong Highworth team today, the game was played at home at the normal kick off time of 14:00.

During the warm up, it was clear the Highworth team had some technically gifted players, and the parents and coaches knew it was going to be a tough encounter. Robins started the game very brightly, with Louie\'s strength and skill up front causing all sorts of problems for the Highworth defence. Before long Louie opened the scoring, after William beat his man on the wing and passed to Louie on the edge of the box, and he dispatched the ball perfectly into the bottom corner. Robins piled on the pressure and it wasn’t long before the next goal was scored. Timon with his unusually long throw, managed to find William on the right-hand side, who after controlling the ball nicely, crossed the ball to Louie who then rifled his shot into the back of the goal. The Highworth boys began to get a foothold in the game, and it wasn\'t long before their quality started to shine through, it was an end to end game with Freddie making a number of last ditch tackles and Ryan making some outstanding saves in goal. The final action of the quarter, saw Timon beat his man on the wing and stroke the ball beyond the Highworth goalie, which gave the boys some much needed breathing space.

The second quarter saw both teams make some changes, with Manni, Johnny, Sonny and Xavi being added into the game. This quarter was dominated by Highworth, and if truth be told, Ryan and Sonny kept the boys in the game. The Highworth boys managed to score 2 goals in this quarter, one of which was an unbelievable strike by their midfield maestro which no goalie could have saved. The Robins were up against it, and the Highworth lads were forcing the Robins boys into some uncharacteristic mistakes. Xavi did come close to scoring after some nice build up play between Manni and Johnny, but the ball just crept wide of post. The ref blew time for the quarter and the lads re-grouped.

Robins began to get on top of the game again in the 3rd quarter, with the goal of the day being scored by Timon. This was one of the best team goals you will see, it started with Ryan rolling the ball out to Sonny in defence, Sonny passed the ball to Louie, who in turn squared the ball to William, William took a touch, spotted Timon\'s run into the box and played an inch perfect pass, which Timon ran onto and then buried into the back of the net – what a fantastic team goal! William and Louie both got on the score sheet again, with two lovely finishes from outside the box. Unfortunately, Sonny took a knock in the face and whilst he bravely tried to carry on, it was obvious he could play no further part in the game, Sonny was sportingly applauded off the pitch by both set of parents, players and coaches which was really nice to see.

In the final quarter, the Highworth lads really tested the Robins defence, with wave after wave of attack. The Robins boys were trying their hardest to keep their opponents at bay, but at times the lads were panicking on the ball. Ryan was having an unbelievable game in goal, making several \"De Gea\" type saves, it is clear to all that we have a very special goalie in our team. The Highworth lads managed to score one goal in this quarter with no reply from Robins. The boys looked dead on their feet when the ref blew full time on the game. Robins just about edged this fixture, but it was certainly the hardest game of the season to date.

It was a tremendous game of football to watch and the boys left nothing out on the pitch. There is definitely some learning to take from this game and whilst it wasn\'t pretty at times, it will only help the boys develop moving forward. Big respect goes to Highworth today, for playing football in the right way and for the impeccable behaviour of their players. We are looking forward to having many more exciting games against this team in the future.

Robins U7 v Highworth

Beautiful passing display from Robins under 7s

The boys played against Highworth today, it was typical November conditions for the afternoon kick off. A number of the parents were slightly worse for wear after attending the under 7s Xmas celebrations on the Saturday evening, luckily the fragile state of the Dads did not impact the boys\' performance….

The boys did take a while to grow into the game, but once they got a foothold on the match they never looked back. Timon was very lively on the wing, linking up nicely with Louie, and it wasn’t long before Timon scored his first goal of the game, after some wonderful one touch passing between Louie, Timon and Will. Timon soon scored two more goals, adding another hat trick to his already impressive goal tally. It was not long before Louie and Will were also on the scoresheet, their powerful shots just proved too much for the Highworth goalie. Sonny was having a tremendous game at the back, confidently dealing with the opposition\'s attacks.

The usual changes were made in the second quarter with Johnny, Manni and Xavi being added into the game, with all three having an immediate impact. Manni was holding the ball up well up front, and his hard work was awarded with a lovely goal, which he buried with conviction into the back of the net. Next it was Xavi\'s turn to get on the scoresheet, after playing a neat one-two with Johnny, Xavi dropped his shoulder to beat his man and buried his shot into the back of the Highworth net. The opposition were starting to have a few shots, all of which were saved by Ryan. Ryan\'s distribution was first class again, with both his short and long passes finding their intended targets.

The third quarter saw the excellent Sonny bag himself a hat trick, with some lovely finishes. The pick of the bunch being a real team goal which started with Ryan rolling the ball out to Johnny, Johnny took a touch and then laid the ball down the line to Xavi, who after looking up, played a perfect pass through to Sonny who finished first time in the bottom left hand corner, this was a special team goal and Sonny\'s celebration wasn\'t half bad either! Johnny also got on the scoresheet, after beating two players and then stroking the ball beyond the Highworth goalie. After some confusion in the Robins defence between Johnny and Ryan, Highworth managed to score their first goal of the game. The number one lesson here being communication, and no doubt the boys will learn from this.

The final quarter saw Ryan come out on pitch with Johnny taking his turn in goal, Ryan was enjoying himself on the wing, and it wasn\'t long until he got himself on the scoresheet after an inch perfect shot into the bottom right hand corner. Next to score was Manni, with a worldy long ranger, which the Highworth goalie could do nothing about. Manni was absolutely beaming which was lovely for all to see. William and Louie scored the final two goals of the game, both of which followed some excellent build up play from the whole team.

It is easy to forget these boys are only 6 and 7 years old, with their maturity and technical ability impressing everyone that is fortunate enough to watch them play.

Robins U7 v Greenmeadow

Not enough superlatives for this outstanding Robins performance!

Today the Robins under 7s played at home in their toughest test yet, against a highly rated (and unbeaten) Greenmeadow team, in the final game of the mini cup competition. The tension in the air was palpable, with the boys looking unusually nervous prior to kick-off, which showed the importance of this fixture.

The game kicked off with the Robins setting up in their preferred diamond formation, it wasn't long before Timon was on the ball, and his unbelievable strength and speed was causing havoc for the Greenmeadow boys. After a lovely one-two with Louie, Timon powered the ball into the back of the net, giving the Robins lads the perfect start. It was clear the Greendmeadow team also had some big strong lads, and there were some tasty challenges being made from both teams, the ref did an excellent job of defusing any tension to keep the game under control. The next goal was scored by Greenmeadow, their big striker rifled the ball into the back of the net, 1-1 and it was game on!

This was end to end stuff, with Ryan making some superb saves, at one stage he bravely dived at the opponent's feet to stop an almost certain goal for Greenmeadow. William and Louie were doing a great job holding the ball up and switching the play in the Greenmeadow half, supported by Timon and Freddie who were playing a more defensive role. Freddie made some excellent last ditch challenges to keep the Robins boys in the game. With only a few minutes left in the first quarter, the lads began to spray the ball around nicely and scored three goals in quick succession, William beat his man on the wing with a trademark run, and then smashed the ball into the back of the net from a tight angle. Timon then scored another two goals, the pick of which was set up by Louie, after some brilliant hold up play, Louie swivelled on the ball and laid Timon through on goal who finished nicely into the bottom corner ... what a fantastic team goal!

The second quarter saw several substitutions for both teams, with Johnny, Sonny, Xavi and Manni being added into the contest for the home side. This proved to be a very tight quarter with both teams struggling to get the ball under control, massive respect Sonny who was executing some crucial challenges in defence to prevent Greenmeadow from having a clear shot on goal. The Greenmeadow number 7 was enjoying plenty of possession in the middle of the park, and Freddie had to be at his best to mark him closely. It looked like the second quarter would end goalless until a moment of pure quality, Xavi beat his man skilfully on the wing, he cut inside before the Greenmeadow defender clipped the back of his heels and the ref gave a free kick just outside the box. Xavi was preparing to take the free kick when Martin decided it was the perfect distance for Johnny, up stepped Johnny, who after a very short run up, connected perfectly with the ball and it rifled onto the inside corner of the upright and into the back of the net, what an inspired decision from Martin and what a superb hit from Johnny!

Greenmeadow started like a rocket in the third quarter, scoring two goals very quickly which clearly shook the Robins team, the lads regrouped and delivered an excellent defensive performance. Ryan was immense in goal, living up to his reputation as one of the best shot stoppers around. After saving a shot, Ryan quickly found Louie, who calmly laid the ball to William who was in acres of space on the wing, and despite the calls from the touch line to take a touch, William hit a wonderful first time shot from outside of the box which flew into the back of the net. This was such an important goal because it took the pressure off the rest of the team, and gave the boys some much needed breathing space.

The final quarter was very close again, with both teams playing some lovely stuff. It was Greendmeadow who struck first in the fourth quarter, with the ball just ricocheting beyond Ryan and into the Robins goal. It was end-to-end football, Sonny was unbelievable at the back, tackling boys twice his size and calmly passing the ball out to his team mates. The next goal was a real team effort, with Sonny passing the ball to Manni who in turn found Johnny, Johnny turned on the ball to beat his man and squared the ball to Xavi, who took a touch and buried the ball into the back of the net. The final goal of the game was scored by Johnny after Manni had a shot saved by the Greenmeadow goalie and Johnny followed it up and stroked the ball into the back of the net. The ref blew full time and both sets of players sportingly shook hands and congratulated each other on an excellent game of football.

Vito and Martin have got the lads playing some magnificent football, and the boys are clearly enjoying themselves in this special Robins team.

Purton v Robins U7

Solid performance in wintery conditions!

The boys played away at Purton today, it was an early kick off and to say it was cold is an understatement, some of the parents could be heard comparing the conditions to the Antarctic! The boys carried out a minute’s silence at the start of the game for Remembrance Sunday which was excellently observed by all.

Unfortunately, Purton could only field 4 players, so it was agreed the Robins team would loan a player for today\'s match (massive respect to Freddie, William and Ryan for offering to play with the Purton team).

The first quarter Freddie started on the Purton side, this seemed to unsettle the Robins, and it took a while for the boys to start their passing game. The first goal of the game was scored by Louie, after William picked up the ball in defence, dropped the shoulder to beat his man on the wing and then dinked it through to Louie, who controlled the ball perfectly and placed his shot into the bottom left hand corner. The Purton boys (with Freddie’s influence) were growing into the game, and were having their fair share of possession. Johnny started the game in defence and had to be quick on his toes to prevent the Purton team from have a clear run on goal, with several last-ditch challenges being made. Ryan was outstanding again between sticks, commanding his box like a true professional whilst shouting words of encouragement to his team mates. The first quarter ended with no more goals being scored, and the boys knew they were in a tough game.

The second quarter saw some changes to the team, with Timon, Manni and Sonny being added to the mix. William joined the Purton team and Freddie resumed duties with the Robins boys. It did not take long for Timon to make his mark on the game, beating his man with his blistering pace and then finishing nicely into the bottom corner. Then it was time for Freddie to get on the score sheet, with two tremendous strikes, one of which was from outside of the box. Freddie followed this up by nearly breaking the goal post, after volleying the ball first time from just inside the oppositions half with the shot crashing back off the upright, the goal is probably still shaking now! Manni and Sonny were linking up well on the left-hand wing, which resulted in Sonny smashing the ball emphatically against the underside of the crossbar and into the net – what a goal!

There were no goals scored in the third quarter, the cold conditions were clearly taking their toll on the players, with neither team managing to get hold of the ball. However, the lads were working hard for each other, limiting the Purton boys to very few shots on the Robins goal.

Ryan agreed to go in goal for the Purton team for the final quarter, and he pulled off some excellent saves, much to dismay of his Robins team mates. Louise passed the ball out wide to Johnny, who rifled a fierce shot at the Purton goal from a tight angle, and Ryan had to be at full stretch to stop the ball from flying into the top corner. Xavi in typical fashion was determined to score in this game, and after missing a couple of close range shots, his persistence was finally rewarded with a goal, after picking up the ball on the edge of the box and smashing the it into the bottom right hand corner. Ryan was beginning to enjoy himself in the Purton goal, he managed to intercept the ball from a Robins player, and he went on a mazy run through the Robins team, only to be stopped by a sublime tackle from William in defence.

The referee blew for full time; the players shook hands and both teams congratulated each other on a hard-fought encounter. The boys should be proud of their efforts today, particularly in the freezing wintery conditions.

Robins U7 v Royal Wootton Bassett

Robins under 7s continue their fine run of form!

It was a chilly Sunday morning at the Robins home ground, where the Robins boys entertained a strong Wootton Bassett team who were unbeaten so far this season.

The Robins boys got off to a flyer with Louie scoring the first goal of the game, with one of his trademark power shots nearly creating a hole in the back of the net! This set a precedent for the home team, and Robins quickly scored again with the ever-reliable Timon finishing nicely into the bottom corner.

The Wootton Bassett lads were beginning to grow into the game and it was clear they had some big strong players. Ryan pulled off some excellent early saves between the sticks, and his fantastic distribution set up the next goal for Xavi, who in typical fashion rifled a long-ranger into the top corner. The lads were passing the ball around nicely, and after a beautiful one-two, William laid the ball through to Sonny whose pace and skill enabled him to beat his man and hammer the ball beyond the Wootton Bassett goalie.

The Bassett team were having their fair share of possession and the Robins defence had to be at its best to limit the number of shots on their goal, special mention goes to Freddie and Johnny who both executed some last-ditch challenges to prevent the opposition from scoring.

Manni was having the game of his life on his 7th birthday, his running and strength in the tackle were superb, he stopped numerous counterattacks and should be very proud of his performance, as should all the boys.

After 4 hard-fought quarters the referee blew full time and the Robins lads progressed into the next round of the cup.

Ferndale v Robins U7

Excellent team performance from the Robins under 7s

Today saw the boys play the return leg against Ferndale Rodbourne, they delivered a fantastic display of passing football, putting into practice the hard work from the training ground.

This match report is not going to call out individual players because today was all about the team, the lads worked their socks off for one another. The positional play was outstanding, the passing game was another class, but the most pleasing element of today\'s game was the team spirit of the group. Onwards and upwards for this talented group of boys!

Robins U7 v Ferndale

Another fine performance from the Robins under 7s!

The boys played at home today against Ferndale Rodbounrne. It was an unusually warm October afternoon much to delight of the watching parents, grandparents and supporters. Many commented on the lovely conditions, but rest assured there will be many colder and wetter games to come!

Again, it was a full turn out of players for today’s game, which is testament to the boys and parents\' commitment to this team. Ferndale Rodbourne started the game positively, and were clearly well drilled in their defensive duties, however, as the match progressed, the Robins\' class shone through and a flurry of goals were scored. Some match highlights: Freddie scored 6 wonderful goals, with the pick of the bunch being a top corner worldy!

Johnny scored his second hat trick in two games and also completed a hat trick of well executed \"Cruyff\" turns.

Manni covered a serious amount of distance on the pitch with his endless running and set up some lovely goals with some neat one-two passes

Ryan was excellent in goal, pulling off some acrobatic saves when called into action (the boy is getting a rep as the most dependable keeper in town!)

Sonny\'s strong play on the wing and close ball control was rewarded with a lovely bottom corner finish

Xavi kept up his scoring form with another 4 excellently dispatched goals.

Birthday boy Louie Brown also bagged himself 4 superb goals on his special day.

Timon scored a hat trick and his impressive throws set up countless other goals (chants of \"Is he Rory Delap in disguise\" could be heard from the watching crowd!)

William\'s excellent work rate and skilful ball control resulted in 2 well deserved goals to add to his tally.

Most importantly, all the boys played with a smile on their faces, with respect for the opposition and were disciplined throughout the match.

After the game, all the lads sang happy birthday to Louie which was a lovely touch and demonstrated how close this group of players are.

Robins U7 v Purton

U7s impress again in their first home game of the campaign!

This week the boys were playing at home against a newly formed Purton team, the slightly sunny conditions were perfect for a Sunday afternoon kick off. It was a full turn out of players and parents for the Robins under 7s with each player ready and raring to go for today's challenge.

The boys started brilliantly with Louie winning the ball in the middle of the park and laying it out wide to William who dropped his shoulder to beat his man and then smashed an unstoppable shot into the back of the net. The Purton boys tried hard to regroup but were unable to contain the continuous waves of attack from this very technically gifted Robins team. Before long, Louie was on the score sheet, after finishing a passing move off nicely with a perfectly placed shot. Freddie was impressing all with his powerful runs down the wing, and his hard work paid off when he scored an excellent goal from the edge of the box. The Robins boys were playing some excellent stuff, switching the play nicely and holding their positions. Timon was next to get on the score sheet, after taking on a couple of players on the left-hand wing, before cutting in on his right foot and curling his shot into the bottom right hand corner of the net. The ref ended the first quarter and both teams retreated to their team dug outs for a well-earned rest and drink.

The coaches made some changes in the second quarter with Johnny, Sonny and Xavi being added into the fray. The boys quickly made their mark on the game with Xavi and Johnny executing a one-two on the right-hand side which resulted in Johnny trying his luck from outside the box, his powerful shot rifled into the back of the net leaving the Purton goalie with no chance at all. It was soon Xavi's turn to get on the score sheet after some excellent work by Manni and Sonny in central midfield, Sonny managed to lay Xavi through on goal who expertly dispatched his first shot of the game. The Purton boys were starting to grow in confidence and had a few attempts at the Robins goal, but the ever-dependable Ryan was stopping everything that was fired at him. The lads began to enjoy the lion's share of possession again, with some lovely free-flowing football being played. Xavi continued his rich vein of form in front of goal and had bagged himself another hat trick by the end of the second quarter.

The third quarter saw Ryan coming out of goal and scoring an excellent goal himself, after some great link up play with William on the wing. Louie was playing some brilliant stuff on the right-hand side, setting up goals for Freddie and William, who both finished emphatically into the Purton net. Louie unleashed one of his trademark "hammer shots" which was saved excellently by the Purton goalie, who injured himself in the process. The referee sensibly stopped the game and allowed treatment to commence on the injured keeper, Louie very sportingly checked the goalie was ok before the game restarted. The quarter ended with Freddie getting a hat trick and Louie grabbing another goal.

The final quarter saw more goals for the Robins team with Johnny scoring another 2, and Xavi adding to his already impressive tally for the season. Manni's endless running was finally awarded with a lovely first time finish into the back of the net! Sonny was showing off his excellent footwork on the right-hand wing and stroked in two beautiful shots beyond the Purton goalie. There was time for Timon to dispatch one more goal before the referee called time on the game, and the players from both teams shook hands and congratulated each other on a hard-fought encounter.

Another fantastic performance by this Robins under 7 team, the boys are clearly enjoying their football and it is a joy for all to watch!

Cirencester v Robins U7

Robins under 7s get off to a flyer in their first ever league match!

The Robins under 7s team travelled to Cirencester Town today for their first ever league game, there was a sense of excitement and anticipation in the air for this talented group of players and they did not disappoint!

Cirencester Town started strongly and it was clear that they were a well organised team, with some very technical players. Cirencester quickly took the lead in the first quarter after some strong play through the centre of the pitch by their tricky number 7. The Robins boys regrouped quickly and after excellent work from Timon on the wing, the ball found its way to Louie and he dispatched his shot with power and precision into the back of the net, the score remained level until the ref blew time for the first quarter.

The second quarter saw some changes in the team, and the Robins quickly took the lead after Johnny skilfully beat his man on the wing and crossed the ball to Xavi who finished nicely into the bottom corner. The Robins team began to start playing free-flowing football and were dominating the game, taking a comfortable lead by the end of the second quarter, with Xavi bagging his first hat trick of the season.

The third quarter was much closer with only 1 goal being scored by the Cirencester boys, Ryan Griffiths made some crucial saves in goal and the defenders, Sunny and Freddie worked tirelessly to protect the goal from a hard-working Cirencester team. At one point Freddie, managed to wriggle out of a sticky situation with 2 Cirencester players around him and clear the ball down the line, all with a big smile on his face which epitomised how much fun the boys were having.

The final quarter saw 3 more goals being scored by Robins, with Louie scoring one and Xavi getting another two! Manni's hard work up front nearly resulted in another goal with the Cirencester goalie just managing to stop the ball from creeping into the corner. William was having a fantastic game on the wing and his powerful running was causing lots of problems for the tiring opposition.

The coaches and parents could not have been prouder of the boys' work rate, attitude and team spirit. Bring on the next game!
