Meryfield's new season kicked off with a well-earned 2-2 draw at Cowley Hill. Our team displayed amazing team work, energy and tenacity, inspiring a comeback from 1-0 down to lead 2-1. Cowley Hill scored a last minute equaliser to level the game, however the boys deserved at least a draw for their efforts. A massive thank you to the parents that made it to Cowley Hill to cheer on the team - your support is always appreciated.
