St Albans City Youth FC - Match Reports w/e 14th May 2017

St Albans City Youth - Boys

Under 18

The 18 East WFL played Hadley Wood & Wingate Foxes in the final of the Spring Shield and although they won 3-1 it should have been a cricket score by all accounts. Scoring the goals were Lucas Martindale, Ollie Pawlaczek and Cain Joseph who unfortunately broke his collar bone soon after, we wish him all the best.

In the WHYL Challenge Cup Final saw the 18 South lose 6-0 despite the young Saints putting up a battling display and Youness Bakhti won the the MOM Award.

Under 13

The 13 South had the majority of the play against Park Street Village in their Division 2 league match but failed to take their chances and finally lost 3-2. Alex Laking-Jerez and MOM Zak Raidi scored the goals for the South.

The 13 North played two matches last week and in the first saw them play Harvesters East away 3-1 with Louis Sampson scoring two goals and Thomas Coulling one. The MOM went to keeper Finlay Tetlow.

In the their next game the North played their club mates the 13 East Blue at home and following a close match saw the North emerge winners by three goals to two. Scoring goals for the North were Jamie Kerr, Louis Sampson and Daniel Curran(that's my boy). The Mom went to Wasim Boksh but it was a close thing as keeper Finlay Tetlow once again was brilliant between the sticks. Scoring for the 13 East Blue were Charlie Battle and Daniel Gant.

Under 12

Away to London Colney Blues were the 12 North and they finally won 3-2 after a very close and tight match with Jake Berry scoring a hat-trick.

Under 10

Under 10 South - Cuffley Tournament Winners

The Under 10 South came out on top by winning the Cuffley tournament after winning 3 penalty shoot outs and a local derby en route. I think it is fair to say that all the boys and parents were very happy. A special thanks to Ben Kelly who has coached the boys for past couple of years and whilst he was not there to watch today he would have been proud of them all too.

In the group stage of the tournament the South won 3 and drew 1 to top the group.

Stevenage Timbers 1-0 (Freddie Yeo)

Potters Bar Black 0-0

Cuffley Zeps 4-0 (Owen Weaver 2, Freddie Yeo 2)

Risden Wood Colts 1-0 (James Beasley)

In the quarter final the South played a tight game vs Ware Lions. It was 0-0 AET and so to penalties. Which the South won 4-3 thanks to some superb saves from goalie Ben Pearman.

In the Semi Final we played against fellow clubmates the City Youth Under 10 North. With many friendships and school mates on both sides it was a strange edgy game with very few clear cut chances. Again it finished 0-0 AET and so to penalties. I think nerves got the better of some of the players but we ultimately won 3-2.

In the final the South played Chars Youth Blues. It was a tough match and with the South falling behind in the 2nd half. However the boys responded fantastically and forced home an equaliser with a minute left to play from Josh Smith. There were no more goals in extra time and so to penalties again for the 3rd time in an hour. Again some superb goalkeeping from Ben resulted in another 3-2 win to begin some great celebrations.

All the 8 players had played their part in a great team effort and they deserved to win the trophy for their sheer resilience in the shoot outs especially those boys who had previously missed but stepped up in the final to take another penalty.

The 10 Orient played Harvesters North in a friendly on Sunday morning and for the young Saints their were goals from Antonio Desiderio who finished off a brilliant team move whilst there were also two great strikes from Bertie Postema and he was also outstanding in midfield.

Under 14 Central

In the WHYL Senior League Cup Final saw the the 14 Central lose 4-0 to Sun Sports after a very tough game against a very strong team who have lost only once this season in all competitions. They put Central under pressure right from the start and soon they found themselves 2-0 early on and keeper Joe Moss made some fine saves and in doing so kept the scoreline down. Trying to pull a goal back saw Daniel Williams having a great shot saved by their keeper whilst Matt Roome created a few chances for himself. The Central awarded two MOM and they went to keeper Joe Moss and midfielder Ben Sommerbauer who was just stunning in the midfield and although Central tried hard to pull a goal back it would not come.

The whole team gave an outstanding performance.

On Saturday saw the 11 West lose 3-0 to Harlow Town Hawks after what was a very tight game in the Orange Divisional Cup Final with the MOM going Lenny Brandon.


Under 10


Under 10 Romans


The 10 St.Albans Romans clinched the MHRML Maroon Divisional Cup with a captain's goal from Ryan Kennedy as they won 1-0 against Bengeo Tigers Caspians. Although on top for much of the game the Romans had defend strongly for the last 15 minutes after a spirited Bengeo fightback. It was fitting finish to season for the Romans side in that they enjoyed plenty of success in their 26 games this season.

Under 9

The 9 Centurions beat Broxbourne Red in the Blue MHRM Divisional Cup Final by four goals to one. The MOM went to the whole team for a brilliant first season. There were 2 goals for Noah West and one for James McCluskey plus an own goal.

Also playing in MHRM Division Cup Final were the 9 West in the Green Division and their opponents were Hatfield Town Blues and at full time the score remained at 1-1. Scoring the goal in normal time was Freddie Stewart and so to penalties which saw the West win 2-1 on spot kicks. Scoring the penalties were Matty Baker and Daniel Day, well done lads.

Under 8

The 8 East played Wheathampstead Wanderers Pumas and scoring a goal for the young Saints was Leo Hooper-Walter whilst their star player was Jude Evans. .Ricardo Roberts was unlucky not to score when he saw his bicycle kick rebound back off the underside of the crossbar.

St Albans City Youth - Girls

Under 14

The 14 Girls nearly did the treble having won the league and the County Cup already saw them play their local rivals Hatfield Town whom they beat in the county cup in the Herts Girls Football League Cup Final but this time Hatfield came out on top after a very close game winning 3-2.

 For the 14 Girls  saw keeper Maisie Grayland pull off a fine save but just before the break Hatfield went in front. At the start of the second half the City Girls came out guns blazing with both Mathilda Finburgh and Mia Pinkham going close. It didn't take long for the 14 Girls to equalise when Mathilda Finburgh swept over a low cross from the right wing whereupon Mia Pinkham racing into the box drilled it low into the back of the net to make the score 1-1. 

Straight from the kick-off Hatfield went straight up the other end and retook the lead and they then added another goal to go 3-1 up. The Saints though hit back themselves and scored another goal when Jess Simpson blasted the ball into the back of the net from ten yards and although they pressed forward for the equaliser themselves it just would not come despite Mia Pinkham and Laura Gifford going very close, still they gave there all and it was a great game to watch.

Under 12

The 12 Girls North were playing Garston Ladies in the County Cup Final at the County Ground at Letchworth and after a very close first half they found themselves 1-0 down at the break down to a shot that hit the underside of the crossbar and bounced on the line and out, was it over well it was 1966 all over again when Geoff Hurst's goal was given as having crossed the line. In the second half Garston Ladies scored two more goals to win the match 3-0 with Briony Stachini winning the POM for the North girls after a very impressive display in a defensive midfield position.

Under 11

The 11 Girls North were on the next pitch and they were playing Berkhamsted Raiders Pulsars in the Final of the Herts Girls League Cup. Amelia Thompson gave the North the lead when she fired the ball home after picking up a loose ball inside the box. It soon became 2-0 when Amelia Thompson sent a beautiful lofted pass to the far post(I still don't how she did it) where Abbie Bierman was waiting and she struck the ball first time and in a blink of a eye saw the ball nestling in bottom right corner for what could be goal of the season. Berko pulled a goal back early into the second period but then North scored again to restore there two goal lead. Sarah-Jane Spears played a lovely through ball for Abbie Bierman to run onto and slot home to make it 3-1. Berko though hit back to make it a tight finish when Jess Parnell scored her second goal of the match but the North held on to win 3-2 and take home the Trophy.

Under 10

In the League Shield Final saw the 10 Girls North play the 10 Girls South and it was an evenly contested match with both sides missing chances so the game ended 0-0 at full time and into extra time saw no goals added to the scoreline. The South keeper Alicia Moss worked hard to keep Cora Bayliss and Emilie Hicks at bay. So the game went to penalties which saw the North win 3-1 with Scarlett Mills, Cora Baylis and Emilie Hicks all converting there spot kicks with the North keeper Ebba Taylor-Pugh. For the South saw Erin Mill, Florence Tatlock and Stella Ekblad-Piscitelli all have brilliant games at the back and up front.
