ISFA FINISH THIRD AT OAKHAM ACADEMY TOURNAMENT

After an afternoon's training, ISFA took on 3 EFL clubs over two days in the Oakham Academy Tournament.

ISFA U16 0 COLCHESTER UNITED 1

ISFA started well creating 3 early 1 on 1 chances against Colchester.  However, in a hectic game, it was Colchester who took the lead after a goalmouth scramble.  ISFA worked hard in the second half but couldn't find an equaliser in what was an entertaining game.

ISFA U16 0 BRISTOL CITY 4

After a well balanced balanced opening period, the deadlock was broken by Bristol with an impressive counter attack.  In the second half, Bristol then took control, scoring an early second goal before then adding 2 late goals to prevent an ISFA comeback.

ISFA U16 1  ROTHERHAM UNITED 0

A much improved ISFA side impressed against Rotherham in the final group game.  Controlling possession, ISFA looked to impose their style whilst Rotherham threatened on the counter.  However, ISFA took the win with a superb team move in the second half that was calmly finished by Connor Manning. (Westminster).

On the second day, Semi-Finals and a 3rd Place Play-Off took place.

ISFA U16 1 COLCHESTER  UNITED 2

ISFA impressed with their best half of the tournament, controlling possession and playing the game high up in the opposition's half.  Jack Brown (Brentwood) rounded off an incisive move down the left to take ISFA in at half time 1-0 up.  Colchester came out the stronger of the two sides in the 2nd half and grabbed a deserved equaliser before scoring a second on the counter to win the game.

ISFA U16 2 ROTHERHAM UNITED 0

ISFA secured 3rd place in the tournament with an impressive final performance, looking solid in defence and calm and composed in possession.  Joe MacDonald (Brentwood) smashed home from 30 yards out to put ISFA 1-0 up at the break.  An impressive 2nd half saw ISFA take control of the match and MacDonald secured the win with a thunderbolt left-footed drive following a corner.

After an encouraging camp, eyes now turn to the South and North trials which will take place in September/October as players will be invited to retrial for the upcoming season.
