Two ISFA U15 Squad kicked off the new season at a Camp at Harrow School on 17th - 19th August 2018
ISFA U15A 3 CRYSTAL PALACE 2
In an open and entertaining match ISFA went ahead when Mario Matos headed home from a set play. Both sides passed the ball well and created chances, but the final pass or finish proved elusive. Just before half time Palace equalised from a dangerous cross into the penalty area. The second half saw ISFA come out strongly and goals from Jack Hemmings and William Crouch opened up a comfortable lead. Palace caused alarm by pulling one back late on but ISFA managed the game well to secure a very pleasing victory.
ISFA U15A 1 WATFORD FC U15 3
This game was a difference experience for the players compared to yesterday. Watford were very physical, and the tempo of the game was much quicker. This caught the ISFA players off guard as they very quickly conceded two goals. This seem to wake the players up and led by Deji at the back ISFA slowly got a foothold in the game. Possession was better, and chances started to come with Timi a threat on the counter attack. The half time team talk was much about playing quicker and with confidence. The players reacted well and started to control periods of the second half. Into the last period of the game ISFA scored but unfortunately, this wasn't enough to mount a comeback with Watford scoring a well worked goal in the final minutes to win the game 3-1.
