U13 Match Report v Camden Elite
Saturday 26th September
JP Pro travelled into London to play our 3rd game of the season against opponents Camden Elite and following the previous 2 impressive performances were hoping to continue the winning start to their inaugural campaign in the JPL.
The initial period of the match was an even affair with our opponents formation of a ‘traditional’ 4-4-2 giving the players some initial problems that we had to overcome first before we could impose our possession based football on the match. It was clear to see from the sidelines that this was a game that was going to need the players to dig in and win the battle before anything else. With the Coaches making the required changes to our defensive shape the midfield & forward players began to find their rhythm & tempo and physically began to dominate our opponents, creating more and more chances in the final 3rd.
Just before the end of the 1st period the deadlock was broken with a well taken set piece from the excellent George Cain and from then on the JP Pro players never looked back & continued to take full control of the game.
A pleasing aspect of todays win was that we had 7 different goal-scorers in the match & it must be noted that the JP Pro back 4 & Goalkeeper have been excellent now for 3 games. This solid defensive shape & foundation allows the exciting forward thinking players to really express themselves on the game and create a host of chances that ultimately lead to our ability to score a host of goals.
Onto next week and our home match against European Football Academy.

U12 Match Report v PFA Allstars
Saturday 26th September
JP Pro U12's were back on familiar territory for the game against PFA All Stars. The lunch time kick-off had a real Autumn feel about it but also felt like 'perfect' footballing weather in order to host the visitors.
JP Pro started strongly and were on the 'front foot' from the start. It was evident, early on in the first quarter, that JP Pro would be the stronger of the two sides. Having said that it required a patient approach in order to score the opening goals. Having done so, the boys started to play fluently and demonstrate what had been the focus in training over the last few weeks. Namely to retain the ball, quality whilst in possession and also to challenge the boys as regard their decision making.
With the JP Pro leading comfortably after the end of the first quarter, it was decided (by the coaches) to pose the boy's different challenges as regards the formations played and also an opportunity for the boys to play in differing positions. As the game unfolded, goals continued to 'rain in' to the PFA goal. There were numerous valiant efforts from the PFA goalkeeper to keep JP Pro at bay, and was a credit to both himself and his team.
As the game progressed in the third and fourth quarters, the focus was on the JP Pro to continue to keep their discipline and play with enjoyment, work hard and show respect to the opposition, despite the gulf in ability. It was a real opportunity to think ahead to what will be a much stiffer challenge next Saturday away at Lambeth.
All of the boys were excellent as regards their focus and attitude yesterday. Too many boys to mention as regards individual performances, as all 12 players were a credit to JP Pro. However, a special mention to Max Walters who demonstrated an incredible work ethic, as well as contributing a number of goals.
We go again next week, looking to reverse to 2-1 loss that the boys suffered during their first game of the season.
Final Score - JP Pro 23 - PFA Allstars 2
