Maidenhead United Juniors

Maidenhead United Juniors u9s teams were in goal scoring form last weekend. Coach Dhiraj was thrilled with the u9s Galaxy side. His player of the match (POTM) went to Zain ‘who made crucial challenges and this week showed composure and great play-making, allowing the team to press forward’.

The u9s Whites played Cookham Dean in a close contest. Coach Byron reflected: “A great team performance. Players’ Player of the Match went to Finley for his strong running, passing and a belter of a free kick into the top corner. Manager’s POTM went to Alfie for his assured performance in goal and determination in defence.”

The u9s Blacks maintained their good start to the season away to Henley Hurricanes. A hard fought and deserved result, POTM went to Lachlan for his determination and hard work.

It was a good day for the u9s Juniors against Singh Sabha as coach Eduardo reports: “POTM goes to Pablo who was very present across the midfield supporting but also in producing strong transitions and very nice passes to this teammates.”

The u9s Braves (pictured) played away to Taplow in a competitive game which was played in the right spirit.

Goals came from Harry, who finished smartly before a neat pass from George released Arian who kept his nerve to score. Braves were rewarded when a pass came through to Adam who took a touch then drilled the ball into the net with the last kick of the match. POTM went to Arian who was everywhere on the pitch, fighting hard for his teammates.
