U17s Panthers

The aim of the Panthers coaches is to help the boys improve their football skills and team skills whilst having fun. The key to our play is passing and movement. Rather than long balls we try and keep possession and work the ball forward using triangles rather than an individual taking on lots of players. Respect is important for our team. Respect for the coaches, each other, the opposition, linesman and the referee. We expect the boys to try their best and encourage their team mates. We will encourage the boys and be understanding as they develop into young men.

Match Reports

  • Panthers 1 MFC Popley 5

    Posted on November 29, 2015
    Despite the score a good effort today against an unbeaten side. Popley scored early and had lots of early pressure. We didn't panic and kept working hard. Cameron did a good job up front and was rewarded with a goal. We had a clear penalty appeal turned down when George was clearly brought down in the box. It was a physical game and it was pleasing to see the majority of you compete for the ball, they were rattled. We need all of you to compete 100% all of the time. Man of the match was the goal keeper, James, for making some key saves.
  • Panthers 4 Fleet Spurs 3

    Posted on November 26, 2015
    A local derby against a strong side that we have never previously beaten. I asked all the boys to think about the team result at the start of the match and they responded brilliantly. I have never been more proud of the team than today. You worked hard, took the simple options and passed the ball around. We took an early lead with a well taken goal from George before Spurs scored, and we went into the half time break at 1:1 After allowing Spurs a simple goal within minutes of the 2nd half, we worked harder and kept our shape and composure. A nail biting game with everyone competing and trying until the end which shows how far we have come this season. Man of the match today for dominating the midfield, and a superb hatrick goes to George.
  • Panthers 0 : 6 Newbury

    Posted on November 9, 2015
    A game where we started well and created several opportunities in the first 10 minutes but didn't convert. A sloppy goal conceded before Newbury scored a couple of good goals. We entered the half time break 4 nil down and with a strong wind against us. We had no subs so the 11 players had to dig deep in the second half. I don't believe the final score reflected the way we played or the difference in the two sides. I was pleased that we competed for the whole game and didn't throw in the towel like last week. Man of the match was Tom Palmer for his efforts in the first half and then taking a turn in goal and making some good saves
