ISFA UNDER-15 REPRESENTATIVE TEAM

ONE WIN, ONE DEFEAT FOR ISFA U15 AT ST. GEORGE'S PARK

Monday 15th December 2014
ISFA 3 LEICESTER CITY F.C  1

ISFA started well against Leicester City when Archie Harker converted a penalty early on. Luca Page then doubled ISFAs lead when he coolly finished off when one on one with the goal keeper. The third ISFA goal was a routine header at the back post from a corner and rounded off a great win for the side.

ISFA 1  WATFORD 7

Watford went ahead within 10 minutes after their striker passed ISFA defenders and slotted home. The away team enjoyed some early pressure and soon doubled their lead and got a third from a corner. ISFA were matching Watford’s possession, but could not establish too many clear cut chances. Watford went into the break four goals to the good. After the re-start, ISFA got goal back through Luca Page’s well taken finish. Watford took their chances and added a further three goals to their tally before the end of the game.  This was played on the Sir Alf Ramsey full size indoor pitch at St. George's Park

NEXT CAMP

7th-8th April (Nottingham)

PREPARATION CAMP FOR ST. GEORGE'S PARK

The ISFA U15 Squad enjoyed a very successful 2 days at Oakham in October.  27 boys were involved in training sessions and a internal squad match.  The main focus was on preparing the boys for the Camp at the National Football Centre at St. George's Park between 15th-16th December, where they will be competing in two matches against Academy teams.  There will be room for only 18 boys at St George's Park so the boys were fully focused, putting everything into training and matches. During the training game the staff looked at different combinations and formations, trying to get the boys to be as adaptable as possible, knowing that the standard they will be up against in December will be very high.

SUMMER CAMP AT HARROW

The new ISFA season began with matches against Leyton Orient in July at Harrow School. 

With a large squad and a lack of full fitness after the summer lay-off, all the players played in both of the matches

ISFA U15 v. LEYTON ORIENT

ISFA kicked off proceedings against a young Leyton Orient side, playing good football, trying to play out from the back whenever possible. Both teams settled into the game and began to play a more passing style of football with chances being created at both ends. All boys tried to adapt to what they had learnt in the morning session with the defence showing good shape, the midfield controlling the games outnumbering the opposition and the strikers working hard to create width and options in attack.

Goals came from Joe Crolla, James Parton, Freddie Christian, Will trew, Tom Clark and Josh Wilkinson (2).

ISFA U15 v. WATFORD

Watford fielded a very strong side, including a number of U16players in preparation for the upcoming Milk Cup tournament in Northern Ireland.  In a match of three “thirds”, ISFA held their own in the first third, going down by just one goal and repeated the feat for much of the second third before tiredness began to become a factor and, in the final third, Watford ran out comfortable winners.
