Bungay A V GRFC u12a
Bungay A V GRFC u12a Cup Semi Final January 23rd
Match report by "mitchel98"
Well its that time in the evening when Phillip Scholfield and Holly Willoughby are on TV so its time for me to write the report.....Honest I do not watch it, it is always on in the background when Im getting the school things and ironing ready for that hectic Monday morning!!! (that ones for you Gary Ingram we know don't we!)
This weekend was going to be another test of character as we are away to Bunday A, who we have never beaten in the League Cup Semi Final....one step closer to another final appearance...what would be the outcome?????
I am not a superstitious person (I think?) but I was going to take my new Nikon for full time pictures but last time I took it the boys lost!, Another superstitious person was missing today.....any guesses.....he was in close contact all match via the phone...................
After an excellent training session on Saturday morning the boys looked really up for the challenge and an opportunity to play in another Final. With some new and improved training routines being worked out it looked as though Fabio has got the hang of this managing lark!
GRFC U12a v Blundeston magpies 16-1-2011
Match report by "mitchel98"
Firsty, it was nice to be back and seeing some amazing new Christmas presents which were on show.................the ladies - new coats, knee high leather boots, designer flask and some Russian hats! Now over to the men - nothing really as we spend all our money on the women!......the only new items I saw was from Fabio (it had to be him!) Father Christmas thought you had been good and bought you a new "enclosed" green clipboard and matching pens and hat! I did see a glimpse of the clipboard and have to say Andy Gray sky sports have nothing on you now..........I cannot reveal everything which was on the clipboard on my first report of 2011 - oh and Delia also had a new FRED PERRY jacket which I can say was original and not a fake, like some of the team said - don't know what they were implying Matt your not a chav!. And over to the team - never seen so many loud and leery coloured football boots...at one point had to double check they were Rangers A boys and not a girls team as I've never seen so many pink boots and gloves on display!
This week we had our League Cup quarter final match against Blundeston Magpies at Lynn Grove with a meeting time of 1.30pm and a kick off time of 2.00pm. Again this week we were not at full strength with Matt missing through illness and Ben G unavailable because "the club is alive" or "one shot" (think about it??? - he was at a JLS concert! And no I am not a fan I asked Emma for the song names HONEST ) but we welcome back Mitch.
St. Benets Wasps v Gorleston Rangers U9b 16-1-2011
After a long winter break, we finally got the season underway again with a trip to St Benets Wasps. In the first half we tried to get our passing game going but didn’t quite find the space as St Benets worked hard and limited our time on the ball. The game began fairly open and both sides committed to an attacking game, but we finally got the breakthrough midway through the half when Jayden found space and slid the ball past their keeper. Soon after we grabbed a fantastic second goal, as Jayden played a pass over his head, which George controlled and finished superbly with 2 touches. St Benets however continued to come back at us, and after we failed to clear our lines properly they pulled a goal back before the break.
The second half the team responded very well as we began to realise we needed to improve defensively to hold off a persistent St Benets. Logan, Daniel, Harrison and Joe all contributed, and showed great discipline to hold their positions. George and Jayden continued to work tirelessly to provide a point of attack, and Ethan chipped in by being very quick off his line. As the half progressed both sides had chances, but George added another great finish to give us a 2 goal cushion. We unfortunately had a late penalty miss after Harrison had worked so hard to create the chance, but overall the commitment shown by the boys in the second half enabled us to see the game out as a 3-1 win. This week’s MoM goes to Toby who has shown great qualities since joining us only a couple of months ago, and this Sunday won the ball back for us on countless occasions. All round a good start to the year, and great to keep the momentum going.

Dereham Success For Under 11a Team
The "A" Team boys took part in the Dereham 6-a-side tournament this weekend with the boys looking to carry on with their good results after winning the K&P Tournament 2 weeks before.
The teams were made up of...... in the Red Team were Rafael (Goalie for the day!!!) Dylan, Jack C, Lewis B, Callum, Ben G and Matty, and in the Green team Jordan, Jack M, Luke, Ben H, Spud and Zak who would have to manage all day with no sub.
The Red team were in a group with Wymondham, Hethersett, Firside Lads, Old Catton Pumas and Horsford Boys, and the Green side in wtih Dereham, Mattishall, Firsdie Boys, Old Catton Tigers and Horsford Lads. From their group the Red team came top winning 4 and drawing 1 with no goals against, and the Green Team coming 2nd winning 2 drawing 2 and a lose in their 1st game which once again set up an all rangers tie in the semi final, this resulted in a 2-0 win for the Greens.
In the final we played Firside lads, and to say we came up against an inspired goalkepper is no understatement!!! Time after time he stopped us taking the lead and at the end of normal and extra time in was still somehow goalless, so on to the dreaded penalties we went with the 6 players all taking one each..... and now was the time for Jordan to take centre stage and shine, he just missed the 1st Firside penalty but after that he was inspired and we went on to win 4-2 with a penatly to spare, so into the clubhouse for a celebratory cola!!
Great effort from both teams on the day who showed what good football they can play. The goals for the day were Zak x5, Lewis B x2, Matty x2, Callum x2, Spud x1, Ben H x1, and Luke x1.
