YOUTH FOOTBALL: Weekend round-up


By Steve Sharman:

Community development officer and coach Lyndon Wain rounds up all the action from the club’s youth section across the weekend, over the 5th/6th January.

It was straight back to action after the Christmas break for most of our junior teams this weekend with a mix of results, but lots of great individual and team performances.

The U7 whites remain undefeated as they put in a really strong performance as Corbin notched four goals in a comfortable victory, meanwhile the U7 greens were also winners with Jack netting a hat-trick and one from Ben. Dexter again was the star when we didn’t have the ball. Well done to Simon in the dugout.

Our U8 yellows played some good great stuff again but came up a little short although their goal-scorers were Oliver, Ty and two from Jasper. The greens were involved in a very tight game and played well, good job Adam and Jay.

Both U9 sides were narrowly beaten this week as the greens lost narrowly despite playing well with David scoring one and making two with Henry and Harrison making excellent contributions. The yellows did take the lead in their game but were also beaten.

Our U10 greens came back from two down to draw the game with William given the man of the match while the yellows were narrowly beaten with a great performance from Louie. The team were wearing their new kit, a big thanks to Right Start for this.

The U12 greens came back from 3-1 down to beat Newcastle Town 4-3 in the top of the table clash. Harry Wilson was awarded man of the match – well done to Angus and Dave.

Our U13s lost against the top of their division but were much improved and played the ball well along the floor, well done to Marley on his debut. Meanwhile the U14s had a tough afternoon against outstanding opponents.

The U15s were big winners in a very competitive game, ending 1-1 at half time but the young Dabbers blew their opponents away in the second half and won well with three more goals.

Our U16s drew 2-2 away against the top of the table having been two goals up, a great performance Steve and Chris. The U18s lost to Audley but there were plenty of decent individual performances against a bigger and older side, a great learning curve.

Finally the U16 girls beat Runcorn Linnets 2-1 and played all the football and look a real good group. Well done ladies and well done Richie and Ray.
