Game vs Southend High School
This week FiF Academy Scholars went to Southend High for a friendly match.

Taking a large squad we made sure that all our players had a large portion of game time each, this made for a testing opportunity for the players as lots of changes happened throughout the game.

However the players stuck to the shape and the game plan and played some fantastic football in patches and seemed to enjoy playing with each other in various positions. 

Cam J was very impressive at 5, alongside Matt N with also put GK Ben P starting to produce good decisions with his distribution.

Our scholars scored first with a clever header from Matt P just beating the keeper to the ball. But very quickly Southend scored an equaliser. 

Shortly after some great footwork from Joe C and a tidy left foot finish put us 2-1 up and looking impressive. 

Southend High then pulled one back and took the lead not long after with a fantastic right foot strike from outside the box from a very tidy Centre midfielder. (No.12) 

Second half started with 5 changes to the Future in Football team, they found a good rhythm and shape was more organised on and off the ball, we created lots of chances but finally Cain T went through after a great bit of skill dropping his shoulder to pass the defender and left foot strike into the top corner.

Future in Football then went on to create more chances but it was from a corner that we had been working on in training that Conor T popped up with a left foot volley to scored the winner fantastically.

After this Mat V was extremely unlucky not to put us further ahead with a superb run and a strike that hit the post and flashed past the goal.

Overall another superb performance and improvement from previous weeks.
