NSC (E2) vs king ED VI college

NSC travelled to George Edward VI college to face a side above them in the table, a win would put them 2nd in the league. After a shaky start NSC went a goal down after a ball broke free on the edge of the area and George Edward striker slotted it in the bottom corner.

10 minutes later a similar situation happened again and NSC were 2-0 down. NSC grew in to the game and started to boss possession, then after a mistake by the keeper Donell slotted the ball away from 12 yards out. 10 minutes before HT NSC were three goals down as a ball in to the box seemed to fox the NSC centre backs and was headed in by the winger. HT saw NSC bossing the game and feeling unlucky to be 3 goals down. As the second half started it was the same old story for NSC  keeping possession but not creating goal scoring opportunities. The subs made at HT really made an impact on the game, 10 minutes in to the 2nd half Rob picked the ball up on the half way line drove at the full back and shot, the ball arrowed in to the top corner, the keeper rooted to the spot.

NSC picked up the tempo and won a free kick 30 yards out, Rob scored the free kick as it was up and over the wall and in to the top corner. NSC were level at 3-3. Still in the driving seat NSC  won another free kick in a dangerous wide area. Jacques Wilcox whipped in a great cross and harry Pritchard rose highest to score a power header in to the   top corner. NSC now lead 4-3. After sustained pressure from George Edwards college, NSC  managed to see the game out to win 4-3.

NSC (E2) vs Shrewsbury Sixth Form Mens 2

The game started off slow but with a shot from TNS early in the game, just wide of the post. Shrewsbury Sixth Form didn't have much possession but still got some opportunities which put the TNS goalkeeper Joe Kinsella to use. The first half saw lots of missed opportunities from both sides but with TNS just missing the top corner from Jacques Wilcox with a fine left-footed attempt. The second half began 0-0 and was much the same as the first half with the tempo being dictated by TNS. TNS continued to press and combine well, and won a corner with Kyle Ferriday crossing the ball in and Donnell scoring with a strong header to mark his debut. The game was still open but in the last 5 minutes, TNS get the last goal through a good finish by Dylan Hillier to kill the game off, after good link up play between Will Evans and Kyle to release Dylan 1 on 1 with the advancing goalkeeper. Overall a good test for the squad in their new league, and with 2 wins out of 2 things are looking promising for this much changed squad.

Squad- Joe K, Jordan D, James C, Connor W, Will E, Tom C, Jacques W, James H, Donell W, Dylan H, Josh W, Levi T, Kyle F and Jamie M.
Scorers- Donell, Dylan

NSC (E1) vs Walsall

NSC E1 side faced Walsall college away on a very tight and bobbly Astro turf surface. NSC got off to a fantastic start with an early two goals from Andy Vale who finished comfortably for both goals. The game turned scrappy in the middle stages of the first half due to the surface but NSC still looked very comfortable and saw out the half with no goals conceded. Second half saw Walsall come close a few times which later resulted into a goal which was an unstoppable over head kick by their number 7. However NSC reacted perfectly with a stunning free kick from Jack Hayden. Since then Walsall felt apart defensively and NSC took advantage by scoring two good goals from Josh Baldwin and finally Rob Reynolds who finished the job off. Overall it was a comfortable game for NSC who came away with an impressive 5-1 win to start the season.

Squad- Mike, Dan, Izaack, Jack H, Lewis, Josh B, Curtis, Andy, Harry P, Jack J, Rob R, Connor, James H and Jacques W
Scorers- Andy, Andy, Jack H, Josh and Rob
