Foxhall action against Stanley Park YMCA

YMCA boss Tim Fish agreed and added, “We were lucky to play when a lot of games were called off. It was a good competitive game. “

Both clubs have thrived since the lockdown. The Blacks are one of three YMCA teams at the Under-8 level, while Foxhall has four. Half of Foxhall’s players have reunited as five-year-old Cubs, while the YMCA team are also enjoying their second season of developmental games in B & DYFL.

Tim added, “It’s pretty much the same team as last season with one or two more players. They’re a good bunch of kids, who get along well.

The YMCA player of the match was Isaac Wallwork, son of Tim’s teammate Martin, the team boss. Isaac never stopped running, scored with a great strike and made a fantastic save on a pass through the goal.
