By Andrew Knaggs
Bloxham showed what they can do
Bloxham played yarnton at home in a cup game and after the disappointment of last weeks performance were ready to see if they could get back to winning ways.
It was a positive start by Bloxham pushing yarnton into their half and making it very difficult for them to get out.
Bloxham passed it about really well making it really difficult for yarnton to get the ball and the chances started to come.
It was Taylor who got the ball rolling when he beat the player on the left wing and crossed it into the box were Alfie p was waiting to knock it passed the keeper.1-0
As yarnton tried to get into the Bloxham half they were closed down quickley and Bloxham had the ball once again and piled the pressure in the yanrton half and it was Ed who dribbled passed 3 players before slotting it past the keeper. 2-0
As Bloxham grew in confidence yarnton were finding it more and more difficult to put their mark on the game and when they did get into the Bloxham half and made it to the penalty box they couldn't get past Kajuis who was solid at the back and with Alfie s playing back there Max the keeper knew he had good cover.
Just before half time yarnton did have there first shot at goal but it was right at Max who easily caught it.
During the second half Bloxham carried on the same way they played the first Dominating possession but this time they were communicating better and it was good teamwork when Ed passed to Matthew who passed it to Taylor who hit it at goal for the ball to go in at the far post. 3-0
it was Taylor again who managed to break down the wing and made another good cross into the box were the fox in the box Edd was waiting to tap it in.4-0
Yarnton were panicking by just kicking it long so it was making it easier for Bloxham to regain possession and put yarnton onto the back foot and Taylor was again getting down the wing beating the defender and whipping the ball into the box were Alfie p came running into finish it.5-0
Bloxham switched off in the last minute when no one closed down the yarnton player who scored a consolation goal.
Full Time 5-1
MOM: Difficult for me to choose as they all played well but the player iam picking is Kajuis who was solid at the back and when he won the ball never gave it away and passed it to Taylor on the wing which helped get the attack going.
Review : Bloxham played some really good football and it was good to watch.
They passed the football well and they closed down much better and they communicated with each other which was good to see.
the only thing they need to improve on is starting the game a bit quicker as we still start off slowly but apart from that it was a good performance from all the players.
Bloxham were in the mood to play the second match and it was yarnton that started the game but Bloxham won the ball back straight away and just like the first match passed it about well.
It was Ryan who caused yarton there first headache when he skilled a player and hit it at goal the keeper saved it but could only palm it out where Taylor was waiting and finished it.1-0
Bloxham were buzzing and pushing forward into the yarnton half and it was Rylie who got down the wing and passed it to Ed who was on the edge of the yarnton box and hit it passed the keeper 2-0.
As the first half went on yarnton suddenly woke up and took the game to Bloxham who seemed to have switched off and it was yarnton who scored the next goal when they broke free and knocked it past James.2-1
Bloxham seemed to be a bit shell shocked when yarnton scored and they were punished again as yarnton had their tails up and managed to score an equalizer when they took a shot from distance and it flew past James.
During the second half Bloxham knew what they needed to do and to be fair to the players there heads could of dropped but they played their football and passed it about well and were rewarded when this time Ed crossed it to Taylor who finished it.3-2
And it was Rylie who made the fourth goal when he Broke down the wing and whipped in a good cross to Taylor who again smashed it passed the keeper.4-2
Yarnton had a few chances in the second half but James made some good saves and sew the game out well.
MOM: Taylor he had a real good first match making 2 assists and scoring one and carried that form into the second match by scoring 2.
his work rate was good and is starting to close down better and the thing that he has improved on the most is his finishing.
Review:Bloxham started off well in the second match but they still for some reason switch off when they are winning they need to learn to keep up the hard work till the final whistle.
What i do like is they have learnt not to give up when a team has pegged them back were as before there heads would go down and go on and lose they have learnt to be positive and keep playing and they are starting to get the results.
The passing and awareness today in both matches was good and we are looking like a really good team.
