On Thursday 3rd October PCS Y10 boys football team hosted a league game against Blatchington Mill.
Both teams started the game brightly and looked to find the opening goal. Blatch were organised and controlling possession in the middle of the field. Consequently, they made us pay when scoring the first goal with a great bit of skill and a calm finish, slotting it away. 1-0 Blatch.
PCS then started to find their rhythm creating many attacks of their own. PCS won a corner on the right hand side, the ball was whipped in by Ryan and the Blatch defender headed the ball which looped over their keeper and into the back of their net to make it 1-1.
PCS continued to create chances but just couldn’t find the back of the net on many ocassions. Blatch hit back at us with two goals of their own before halftime leaving PCS going into halftime 3-1 down.
PCS started the second half brightly keeping the ball and trying to fashion an opening. PCS managed to find a goal when a ricochet from a solo run from Ryan fell to Charlie who lobbed it over the keeper to make it 3-2. PCS continued fighting for the next goal but it was Blatch who found one, to make it 4-2 and to win the game.

On Tuesday 1st October the PCS Year 10 football team travelled to Uckfield for their first cup fixture of the year.
PCS started on the front foot keeping the ball and controlling the possession. PCS created many chances and we put pressure on the back line early in the game but Uckfiled managed to defend to keep the game level.
Uckfield created chances of their own but were all matched by our back line and Jimmy in goal .Just before halftime, Jimmy took a goal kick short to Ryan, who played the ball out wide to Charlie on the right hand side then down the line to Josh. Josh managed to come inside the defender and placed it into the top left of the net to make it 1-0 PCS at half-time.
In the second half Uckfield started strongly in search of an equaliser, their best threat was from corners, which paid off when they equalised, the ball was put in from the left and their player volleyed the ball into the bottom left corner, 1-1.
In search of a winning goal both teams were attacking viciously at each other. PCS had many chances but were all put over the bar or easy saves for the keeper. The game ended 1-1 and went to extra time.
In extra time PCS created 2 early chances and were testing their keeper, but both were matched evenly by the keeper. Uckfield created chances of their own but both defences were solid. The game finished 1-1 and went to penalties.
Uckfield were first to take and our keeper Jimmy dived to make a good save. Ryan stepped up for us to coolly covert his for us to take the lead. Uckfield then missed again by smashing the ball against the bar and Josh scored his for PCS to make it 2-0. Uckfiled then missed again and Jimmy produced another great save for PCS! Jimmy then stepped up himself to take the 3rd penalty. He scored by slotting it into the bottom left corner to win the game for PCS.
