Future in Football scholars travelled to Davenant for a league fixture.

After a great week of work on the training pitch the academy boys looked set to take on to the pitch with good game plan.

As is football FIF went down 1-0 early on after the opposition forward broke free to finish well. FIF quickly went down to 2-0 but then kicked on with the way they meant to play and controlled the game playing most of the rest of the half in the opposition third creating 5 or 6 clear chances that should of been scored.

After several missed chances FIF created a great opportunity which Cain T finished extremely well. His performance today was outstanding throughout.

After getting back into the game they looked like creating more chances but just before half time Davenant broke free from a short back pass to finish and make it 3-1 just before half time.

Second half Future in Football looked to get back into the game creating more chances and not quite finishing which seemed to be the theme of the day. The next goal came from a long throw into the box by Cain T and a neat finish by Ben T with the outside of his right foot on the volley made it 3-2. Quickly after it was 4-2 from another counter attack goal. After the game had settled back more chances were created but it wasn't until a great move lead to a superb cross finished by the impressive right back Matt B scoring at the back post with this first goal of the season.

Future in Football then went on to score again through another great finish from Matt P, Who was a threat throughout the whole game.  

With the pressure on the opposition Corey W scored after a great cross from Josh N to make it 5-5 a superb come back and well deserved.

However with final minutes ticking down Davenant went a scored again from their impressive striker making it 6-5.

With seconds left on the clock Jack F went very close with a lobbed effort hitting the bar and his follow up over just as the final whistle blew.

Overall another good performance without a result to reflect, lessons learned for this today were the obvious ability to create and play good football with a great shape and flexibility in game plan but not ruthless enough in front of goal.
