U12 North WFL Cup double

St Albans City Youth North played Alexandra Park North in the WFL League Cup Final at Harvesters Sunday 6th.  Despite the occasion the SACY boys showed no nerves, as they quickly settled into their passing game. The standard of football was high as both teams passed and moved. But SACY looked very dangerous and soon took the lead with a well-worked goal for Chris Hubbard.  Right from the restart the boys in yellow looked threatening and soon were pouring forward again. In a brilliant 15 min spell St Albans totally dominated with goals from Tom Levy and two from David Etheridge  making it 4-0.  Even a goal just before half time from a Puma’s set piece did not spoil what was a brilliant display. The second half started with Puma’s straining to get back in the game and a quick goal made the score 4-2. Would SACY’s nerve hold? The next goal would be vital and SACY got it with a brilliant solo effort from the half way line and a cheeky chip past the keeper from Man of the Match David Etheridge’s  his hat-trick.  The game was played out with more good football from both sides with Alexander Park never letting their heads drop. SACY scored a final goal again from David making it a memorable 6-2 win.

St Albans City U12 North completed a memorable cup double on Sunday with victory in the WFL Challenge Cup. In a tight game with few chances City came away with a 1-0 win and their second trophy in a week. On a hot afternoon the game was played at a very fast pace, with two good passing teams looking to create changes from a crowded mid field. The first half delivered few chances and both sides looked more likely to make use of set pieces ,given the amount of talented dead ball strikers on both sides.  It was 0-0 at half time and  after a few player  changes SACY started the second  half well creating a number of chances however the Pumas keeper looked solid. As fatigue set in Pumas began to get on top, although chances remained few and far between. With extra time beginning to look a possibility SACY broke down the left and after some excellent passing resulted in a dangerous cross from the left that by passed the defence and keeper for Danny Diviny  to blast in from close range. The remaining minutes ticked away with SACY looking the team more likely to extend their lead .The final whistle saw jubilation from the tired boys who had just won their second trophy of the season.

George Walker Memorial Trophy, played at Clarence Park Friday 11th May 2012

Under 12's Girls George Walker Match Report

Under 12's West v Under 12's Boreal George Walker Match Report

Under 11's

Fresh from County Cup glory, St Albans City Youth Under 11's South were looking for a cup double. Both sides started brightly, creating chances in what was a pretty even first half.  The Harvester’s keeper pushed a Kira Close lob onto the crossbar, but with the final kick of the half, Lauren Standing met Kira Close’s cross to sneak the ball in at the near post.

Harvesters fought back in the second half, equalising early, and continued to press. St Albans continued to look dangerous, and Lauren Walker struck the woodwork several times in search of the winner. Both managers were making preparations for extra time when Harvesters struck again with a soft goal. With seconds remaining St Albans piled all players in to the box for one final corner. Lauren Walkers fine delivery was beautifully finished by Hannah Coote to force extra time.

More end to end action, and Harvesters were kept in the tie several times by the post and some excellent goalkeeping. The final was settled by yet another last minute goal, this time a great strike from Harvesters. 3-2 after extra time the final score. A thrilling and entertaining final.
