Cup Game this week
- Stonnall Juniors Phoenix 3
- Under 13s 4
This week we was drawn against Stonnall away in the Bill Green cup
The game started off with us being under a lot of pressure for the first 15 minutes. Defenders Jimmy Dutton, Luis Chrimes, Adam Sniady and Lennon Jones had to be on top form, Which they were! They soaked up a lot of the pressure and dealt with the game scenarios brilliantly and helped us not conceding. We got a breakthrough when Lewis Busher gambled on a goalkeeping error to slot home a well relaxed finish, 0-1 youth! Moments later confidence had risen with minutes after our first Lewis Busher went on to give Ben Mason a lovely through ball for him to hit it from at least 30 yards out, what a hit, the power this lad can produce is unreal, top corner goal, sheer delight, Ben opening his scoring for the day, 0-2. Moments before halftime the ref gave a free kick resulting in Stonnall grabbing a goal before halftime 1-2.
Lads got off to a good 2nd half producing some great chances, finally getting a break though when Jay Norgrove produced some of his best passes teeing up Lewis Busher with an inch perfect pass for him to slot home a lovely goal. The lad finishes with ease and no pressure, 1-3. 20 minutes in the 2nd half became a slug fest end to end football with Stonnall pouncing on a few mistakes we made for them to grab 2 consecutive goals in as many minutes, making it 3-3 . The game had started to become open with end to end football where both teams had created a lot chances. Both keepers doing great saves to keep their teams in with a chance. However it wasn’t finished there, 2 minutes before full time we had a lot of pressure in their half, only for Ben to set up Ryan Billingham to hit a hard and low shot for the keeper to get his hands on it but he couldn’t stop it going in! 3-4 youth, final score.
Man of the match, Lewis Busher. Parents player of the match, Jimmy Dutton
