George Walker Memorial Trophy Games 2014 - Report

Every year St Albans City Youth FC plays a number of games at Clarence Park raising money for local good causes. The teams play for the George Walker Memorial Trophy, the trophy is named after a former Chairman of the club.


This year there were eight Under 12 teams taking part in four games. In the first match City Youths Under 12 Girls played Hitchin Belles with the Belles winning 4 – 1 there was some great play from both teams. City Youth Captain Maz Horne-Batet scored for the 12 Girls whilst the player of the match went to the Saints keeper Sophie Veal.


In the second match the boys from City Youths North and South teams played out a 1 – 1 draw in a game which saw some fantastic skill and passing from both teams. Ben Martin scored for the South and Finn Murphy for the North. M.O.M. went to Joe Curran of the North.


The final game on Friday was a Under 18 match which saw the City Youth's Under 18's North beat their club mates the East 4-2 but it could have been 4-3 if referee Peter Towndrow, well known for trying to get in on the headlines had not disallowed a goal which was scored by Anthony Gosling with him looking well onside. The other goals came from Shaquille Jones with a hat-trick for the North and Matt Knight scoring their fourth. Scoring for the East was Edward Lawford and Baschir Lousharri.    


The following day City Youths Under 12’s Orient played Markyate FC and won the match by scoring four goals in each half, eight goals to nill. Scoring for the Orient were Joshua Cross 2, Kai Hobbs 2, Peter Rock 2, Louis McNamara and Tommy Edwell. The M.O.M. went to the Markyate goalkeeper Lorenzo Pletersky who throughout the match saw him pull off some tremendous saves otherwise the scoreline could have been more.


In the final match City Youth’s Under 12’s West beat their club mates the Under 12’s East by three goals to nil. Goals from Eddie Johnson-Rix (pen), Jack Lattier and Adam Johnson. The man of the match went to Asher Stevens of the 12's East.


City Youth is pleased to announce that it raised £400 for Centre 33 which will go a long way to helping this fantastic charity.
