Chickerell Under 8’s First Game of the Season

I watched my son and his team, the Chickerell Chickens play their first league game today. A crashing defeat of 8-3 but a great game nonetheless. Some serious high kicks going on from the other team here…I think the ref missed it! Ref-fer-ee!

High Kicking Drama and First Season Game

Followed by more high kicking drama much to the ref-'s amusement...

“Mine, No Mine...Have it Then!"

Cracking save by Bart, the keeper for Chickerell. The ball hit his hands, then the crossbar, down onto the goal line, back out followed by another shot from a striker which hit the post, back out followed by yet another shot which Bart saved...great stuff by "Bart the Fearless"!

Bart​'s Most Excellent Goalkeeping

Second half and Harvey takes a direct free kick from way out and smashes it straight into the back of the net! They didn't deserve to lose by so much but a great game to watch and photograph.
