ABILITY COUNTS FOOTBALLERS START THEIR COMPETITION PREP FOR NATIONALS

16 JANUARY 2019

Following the Ability Counts Football Team’s success in qualifying for the AoC Sport National Championships they are starting their training and preparation for this with a number of friendly games.

This week they took to Newham Leisure Centre to train with West Ham coaches; they were put through drills that tested their reaction time, control on & off the ball, passing, shooting and team play.

Once they had finished they played a friendly game against Newham College, who came fresh and ready to play.

The teams played two 20 minute halves, where NewVIc pushed the ball well using all the skills they learned and finished at the break with a 3-2 lead.

Into the second half and with lactic acid starting to build a frustrated NewVIc side gave away a penalty.  This saw Newham bring the score to level and with frustration building in the final closing minutes, Newham was able to creep the ball into the bottom right-hand corner of the net thus taking the 4-3 win.

Congratulations to the footballers for all their hard work throughout the morning.

NewVIc and Harrow College had to settle for a point each after a thrilling 3-3 frenetic league encounter.

Harrow took the lead after 15minutes where some sloppy NewVIc defending gifted Harrow with the opening goal.

Ten minutes later NewVIc hit back thanks to slick passing delivery between Sagoe and Bocksch, with Hysaj slotting in a low drive making the game level.

NewVIc took slight advantage when Singh hit a rising left-foot shot from the corner of the area into the top corner.

Within minutes, however, Harrow had pulled a goal back as their forward scored outside the area after a mix up in the NewVIc defence!

The hosts then went ahead through a right-foot shot into the bottom corner.

With NewVIc pushing forward, the breakthrough finally paid off when Sisay made space for himself on the edge of the box before unleashing an unstoppable drive that flew into the top corner.
