Match Report
The Manchester Grammar School 1st XI vs  Altrincham Grammar School for Boys
On: Saturday, 09 Nov 2019
Venue: at Home

We started the game quite slow, unable to break down the opposition. They were playing so deep it was hard for the midfield to play though the lines and we struggled to make any key chances. Zach stole the ball off their midfielder and played a quick one two with Joe before firing a cross into Olly Meir but it was cut out by their defender. Josh and Cal enjoyed large amounts of possession but the continuous theme was we couldn’t do anything with the ball. Ted and jack combined nicely a couple of times and we knew that the wings were the way in. Come the second half we stepped up our game and become increasingly more direct. Despite our high press and possession we couldn’t get many shots on target, the best chance of the game coming to Charles Fitchew but he was unable to finish. They hit us on the counter attack and their striker fired one through the legs of Louis to make it 1-0. We pushed high into the final third but their defence remained resolute and the game finished 1-0
