Community development manager and coach Lyndon Wain rounds up all the action from the club’s youth section across the weekend, over the 9th/10th February.
Lots of action once again despite postponements in the Stoke area due to waterlogged pitches. Our two new U7 sides were in action as well as our U16 girls team.
The U7 greens lost but played well only to get caught out on the counter attack with the yellows also losing, but again showing off their passing game against a really powerful side.
Meanwhile the U7 whites won well against the club’s new U7 blues with Corbin netting four times. The whites were really supportive and respectful of the newly former blues and were a credit to the club. Finally the U7 reds lost narrowly in their first ever fixture with Harry scoring a hat-trick for our brand new side.
Our U8s lost to a really powerful and organised side but will continue to learn and develop, whilst the U9s played out a very competitive 2-2 draw. Excellent work from Reece and David resulted in the opening goal with Pip scoring direct from a corner. Charlie in goal made a terrific late save to preserve the result.
In our U10s, the greens were big winners in an entertaining game whole the yellows lost and just wasn’t their day after a good run of results. Keep it up Mark.
The U12 yellows lost away at Stoke City and also after a good run of results and performances the team were left disappointed. Meanwhile the U15s were again winners against very strong opponents. They dominated the first period missing plenty of chances before Isaac slotted a penalty home. Despite pressure from the opposition the lads preserved the narrow lead and relied on a goal line clearance from Liam. The team have a winning habit at the moment!
Our U18s lost to Hanley but once again dominated possession and played some excellent football with a number of younger players making their youth team debut.
Finally the U16 girls produced a magnificent result against Macclesfield Town girls winning 5-1. A hat-trick from Libby and a long range effort from Laura take the girls up to second in the Cheshire League. Well done to Richard and Ray. With the club looking for more players in this age group and interest gathering in other age groups, female football at the Dabbers is on the up.
The community session recorded large numbers once again despite difficult weather conditions.« Back to all news
