Holy Family School Football Fixtures List: 2017-18 TBA
Holy Family v Allesley Primary
Two first half goals from George Deavy and a real beauty from Aidan Walsh were enough to ensure that Holy Family progressed to a third round tie in the Harry Shaw Cup. Their opponents were Allesley Primary School, a repeat of last season's game which H F won by 5-1 in the same competition.
On what was a truly miserable afternoon, H F survived a couple of early scares to go into the lead as George Deavy, finding himself in space, powered a shot into the bottom left hand corner of the net. This goal served to spur Allesley on and only some excellent defending from Sam Magee and Joe Warner, plus outstanding goalkeeping from Chris Wecel kept them at bay. Then, against the run of play, Aidan Walsh spotted the Allesley goalkeeper off his line and lobbed the ball into the net from just inside the Allesley half.; an outstanding effort.
H F's plan at the beginning of the second half was to deny Allesley time, space and goals but we're undone by their inability to clear a bobbing ball from inside their own penalty area and Allesley pounced to bring the score to 2-1.
The final fifteen minutes of the game saw H F under a good deal of continuous pressure but vital and timely interventions from Connor Hilton and George Fernhead served to frustrate an increasingly desperate Allesley side.
Final score Allesley 1 Holy Family 2
Holy Family V Our Lady Of The Assumption
A brand new season, a brand new team. Holy Family began their 2017-18 Catholic League football campaign with an impressive 3-2 away win at Our Lady of the Assumption.
HF played with enough pace, skill and energy to unsettle a good Our Lady’s team, and their ability to win the vast majority of 50/50 balls meant they were always on the front foot. This enabled them to eventually break down a stubborn OLA defence and Jacob Summers scored the first of two goals in the initial period of play. This was soon followed by a goal from Blaze Kelly-Evans who took advantage of a frantic goalmouth scramble to tuck the ball outside the despairing reach of the goalkeeper.
In the second half, and playing up a pronounced slope, HF came under intense pressure and only excellent defending by Blaze Kelly-Evans, together with some amazing goalkeeping from Christopher Wecel (the winner of the Man of the Match award) kept the score at 0-2. However, OLA’s ambition left them light at the back and Aiden Walsh took advantage with a well placed shot into the left hand corner of the goal. HF now need to take confidence from this opening win into the rest of this season.
Holy Family V Manor Park - 7th November 2017
Holy Family v Manor Park - 1st round Harry Shaw Cup. Holy Family built upon their encouraging away performance against Our Lady of the Assumption last Tuesday. The first round draw pitched HF against the beaten finalists from last year's Harry Shaw competition and promised to be highly competitive. Holy Family set off at a terrific pace and soon had the Manor Park boys struggling against their speed of pass and aggressive tackling. This positive approach soon brought dividends as they stormed into a 2-0 lead. However, a sharp forward ball from a Manor Park defender caught the HF defence short and the lead was cut. Any thought of a fight back were cut short as a further two goals were added before the half time whistle went. The second half began as the first half had ended, HF breaking up Manor Parks attacks and counter attacking at pace. Further goals came and with two minutes to go the score was 8-1. The last significant action occurred in the home side's penalty area as Manor Park snatched a late consolation goal. Final score 8-2..
