U11 v MK Dons 

Friday 11th December

On Friday 11th December our U11 squad played MK Dons and gave a superb performance as they returned from our second lockdown. Goals from Theo, Gabe & Rory combined with a defensively solid team effort secured the win.

Coach Jack Manly commended his group on their work rate and maturity throughout the game - the MK Dons Head of recruitment was in attendance and was very impressed with the performance of the team.

We look forward to hosting London Colney on Friday!

U9 v Luton FC

Friday 11th December

On Friday evening we took our U9 squad over to Luton Town FC for a tough test against their academy.  The U9s started very sharply going 3-0 up in the first quarter. Luton then worked their way back into the game showing their class and scoring quick fire goals. The JP Pro boys reacted very well, playing with good quality on the ball & tenacity in their defence. Henry our GK was excellent during the match and the boys look forward to the Christmas Cup this weekend with lots of professional academies to test themselves against.

U12 v Luton FC

Friday 11th December

On Friday evening we also took our U12 squad over to Luton Town FC in which their Coach Colin Willetts was impressed with their performance. The team battled hard losing 5-3 against a technically strong Luton side which allowed the boys to be challenged. This was the first game for 5 weeks and a great warm up for their JPL fixture the following day.

One consolation was that we scored the best 2 goals, a great volley from Max Walters and a lovely clipped free kick from Jacob Hagen.

We look forward to travelling to Cambridge Academy next week!

On Saturday our U8s also hosted Luton & Leicester FC with all squads competing very well. Our U8s have had many professional academy fixtures this month which are all fantastic opportunities for our players and they didn't disappoint this weekend. Both sides competed very well physically against tough competitive academy footballers. These squads keep raising their levels of performance and we are excited for the rest of the season with these players. We look forward to the Performance Cup next week!

U13 Match Report v Camden Elite

Saturday 12th December

 

JP Pro welcomed opponents Camden Elite to Laurette and following last weeks return to winning way after Lockdown 2 were hoping to continue the winning streak to their inaugural campaign in the JPL 

 

The initial period of the match was a frustrating affair with our opponents competitive spirit & dogged approach to the game frustrating the early attempts of the JP Pro team to impose their usual possession based play on the match. It became apparent to the coaching team that this would be a game requiring JP Players to dig in, win the battle on the pitch & be patient before anything else. 

 

After a frustrating 1st period it required a positive input of encouragement and some subtle tactical changes from the JP Coaches at the break to galvanise the team in the 2nd period and it quickly led to a 1st goal by the excellent Zac White to break the deadlock & grab hold of the match. 

 

Built on an excellent defensive back line - led superbly by Ayo Ojo - it wasn’t long before these changes and the renewed endeavour and fight of the JP Pro players made a difference and the opportunities and goals started to flow with the excellent Kyan Okoli grabbing a well deserved hat-trick alongside a clever free kick from Dillion Conway and a 6th and final goal for Zac White which aside from the opponents grabbing a couple of consolation goals at the very end of the match capped a fine display from the JP Pro players

U12 Match Report v Bloomsbury

Saturday 12th December

All aboard the JPL Express!!! With the U12 JPL side playing against Bloomsbury in Central London, a number of the boys and parents decided to take the train to the game. With others deciding to drive to Regents Park. A great experience for the boys and an opportunity to play at a venue like no other they may have played at. And also, the excitement about knowing that they were facing a real challenge against a well organised Bloomsbury side.

 

The pitch was very tight and a sticky muddy surface that meant that both teams needed to really focus upon securing the ball and shifting the ball quickly. After a very tight start to the first quarter, Ben's (the U12 JPPro goalkeeper) excellent distribution was highlighted as he clipped a ball to Max high up the pitch. He noticed the Bloomsbury keeper off his line and clipped the ball over him from outside the box. The boys doubled their lead mid-way through the second quarter, with Albert following in at the far post after a great cross from Jacob. However, Bloomsbury responded in positive fashion with a well taken goal to make it 2-1. Before Max trusted his left foot in striking the ball into the bottom corner to restore the two-goal advantage to JPPro.

 

The game started to open up as both teams got to grips with the pitch size and the conditions. JPPro began to shift the ball quickly and counterattack effectively. This led to a series of corners and the pressure led to a fourth goal, with the Bloomsbury keeper letting the ball through his hands. Bloomsbury responded with a goal of their own to make it 4-2. But JPPro ran out comfortable winners and as with the home fixture, should have been more clinical.

 

A positive result going into the Christmas break, as we all look forward to football filled 2021. Fingers crossed!!

 

Final Score - 4-2
