Manchester City Community Team v EduKick Manchester
10th November 2016
Manchester City Community Team 2 – 2 EduKick Manchester
The lads returned to the Etihad campus in high spirits looking to build on from the win against Stockport County.
The lads started brightly, moving the ball quickly with early touches for each player. Looking to break forwards quickly the team created a number of chances. Edukick dominated the ball and were rewarded in the 15th minute with a well taken goal from the hard working Kehshan. This stirred City team into life and they looked to force us back and levelled the score in the 25th minute.
The half finished 1-1 and the lads were upbeat, showing the confidence required to go on and win the game. City were awarded with a free kick early on in the 2nd half which they converted with a well taken strike. Chances came for both sides, the pace of the game and end to end opportunities looking more like a basketball game. Substitutions were made and it was one of these, Jamie, who equalised with a wonderful 18 yard strike into the top corner.
Another promising result and performance for the squad. A special mention must go to Kehshan who played his final game for the Academy. His work rate and attitude has been top level and we all wish him the very best for the future.
