The EduKick Football Soccer Academy 1st Team played a friendly fixture against a local Bolton Wanderers FC youth side. We were 3-0 up by the half time whistle, yet this competitive game ended 3-3.
One thing that stood out was the performance given by EduKick Football Soccer Academy player, Aykhan. He certainly attracted all the right kind of attention with this beautifully taken strike that gave the BWFC keeper no chance at all. We wish Aykhan all the very best and hope that he can maintain this excellent form throughout the season.
EduKick Football Soccer Academy started the game well. However, against the run of play, Bolton sneaked the early lead with a well-worked goal on the counter-attack. Just before halftime from a corner, Jonathan delivered a great ball to Aykhan at the back post who converted it with a well-placed header. After a pep-talk at halftime, we started the second half as the better team and from a moment of brilliance from Aykhan from the left-wing, he cut inside and hit a forty-yard strike into the far top corner.
Potentially goal of the season. A few minutes after that, Jonathan scored from a second phase of play from a corner ball. Very comfortable in the game, EduKick Football Soccer Academy conceded a sloppy set-play from distance which gave Bolton the motivation to get back in the game. The final score was 3-3 and this is probably a fair result.
Man of the Match: Aykhan
