Ross United U 13ís played in the Brederodes Cup Final on
Thursday evening against Westfields. Westfields, who had
already won the league title, started very strongly and
forced some early corners that were well defended by Ross
had to be at his best early on when a deflected cross had
to be turned over the bar at full stretch to avoid an early
lead from the opposition. Ross started to apply some pressure
themselves with some good work from the midfield of Jake,
Daniel L, Harry and Callum supporting Ryan up front and
the roving role of Josh. In the 21st minute however, an
excellent strike from 25 yards found the top corner that
gave Westfields a deserved lead. Ross
continued to defend well with Joe, Ollie, Dan and Ralph
all needing to be in good form to counter the pressure from
the opposition, but just before half-time Westfields scored
their second goal to make it 2-0.
the second half, Jacob, Liam and Colin were all introduced
from the bench and all contributed to a good team effort
by Ross United. Ross continued to play their part in a competitive
game of football but two goals late on made the final score
Westfields 4, Ross United 0. The Manager and Coaches praised
all of the team for their attitude in a hardworking display
against a well organised Westfields team that had been too
strong for Ross United on the day.

Jake, Ryan, Dan L, Liam, Callum, Harry, Jacob and Colin.
days after teh match, the above team (with the addition
