U14 – Malaga 0 Vs 75 Marbella
A comprehensive win for the U14s against a side that was missing players and has had to rebuild after a difficult time in their club. Marbella were able to pass the ball through the hands of all the players and the boys were played in some different positions so the coach could observe some different playing options. The bench players all came on for the second half so everyone got a decent run.
