Goalie Jacob!

For something a little different, I thought I'd share some recent photos of Jacob as the goalie for the Under 7's Junior Gardeners White team. The first set of photos were taken at the end of June during a tournament hosted by Flixton Juniors AFC.

Out of the 6 matches they played, they drew 3, won 1 and lost 2 and Jacob only let in 3 goals and kept a clean sheet for 4 matches!

He did actually save this goal although you can't see the ball - just out of shot as he'd pushed it out!

And here is the full team (minus one who had gone home!) with their trophies for taking part:

And this Saturday the team played three friendly matches against local teams - they won 2 and lost 1 and Jacob got kicked a few times which he was not happy about - he gets his angry face on and then puts off the scorer! Jacob actually assisted at least 2 goals as he can kick the ball quite a way down the pitch for either Issac or Jack to kick it into the net.

The team move up to the Under 8's in September when the season restarts and I think that they will be a force to be reckoned with - this season was their first playing as a team and they have really settled in and play as a true team. And I thought Jacob would never make a goalie!
