St Albans City Youth FC - Match Reports w/e 6th January 2019

 

HERTS BOYS DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE

At home to Wheathampstead Wanderers Tigers saw the 9 North turn in an excellent performance with Noah Fox scoring two fine goals whilst Junior Mitchell netted a third goal for the North.

A fine second half strike from Theo Turley maintained the 10 Romans fine start to the season in their match with Bury Rangers Black.

The 10 Orient playing Wheathampstead Wanderers Panthers got off to a great start when Edward Cullum gave them the lead with a goal in the first minute and then came goals from Tiago Mendez-Barral, Thomas Noble 2, George Canaway, Freddie Day 3 one of which was a 30 yarder plus further singles from Daniel Hart and Toby Coope. The man of the match was awarded to goalkeeper Alexander Estell for the several great saves he made during the game.

 

WEST HERTS YOUTH LEAGUE 

In division 2 of the WHYL saw the 18 North play Harpenden Colts Whitecaps at home and it was the Whitecaps who were kept caged when the 18 North ran-out 7-1 winners. Scoring a hat-trick was Matt Breeze whilst George Piekarczyk netted a brace with Jack Hughes and Henry Piekarczyk both scoring one apiece in the Saints win. The man of the match was awarded to the hard-working Rob Devine.

Away to Aston Clinton Colts Black saw the 18 West take all three points in division 3 with a 4-2 victory and scoring the goals to give them the win were Adam Johnson, James Knapp, Mazen Medhat and Gideon Rowland.

On a soggy pitch there were not many chances in the first half in the match between the 18 Orient who were away to Harpenden Colts Jaguars and so the score remained at 0-0 but in the second period it was a different story with the Orient managing to break them down at the end to run-out 4-1 winners. The goalscorers were Matt Small with a fantastic hat-trick whilst Zach Quinn popped up with the fourth goal and the man of the match award given to Ollie Wakeling.

The 16 East were at home to EB Lions and it was a very close game with score at 2-1 to the Lions and then after a dodgy 10 minutes towards the end of the second half saw the East concede another four goals to lose 6-1. Scoring the 16 East's only goal was Louis Postema whilst James Barwick picked up the man of the match title.

Playing Kings Langley Reds at home were the 16 Orient and they went on to win 5-2 with Harry Turner leading the goalscorers with a brace whilst Samuel Beasley, Logan Subramanian and Joe Sykes all scored one apiece to roundup the scoreline.

Meanwhile the 16 North crashed to a heavy defeat at home to Harpenden Colts Magpies who certainly stole all three points with a big win whilst scoring a consolation goal for the North was Sasha Stojilikovic. 

The 15 Boreal had a good 3-1 win away to Watford Youth Sports with goals from Tom Durrant, George Hall and Ben Wick whilst the man of the match was given to Jack Carmichael.

There were mixed fortunes for the 15 South playing against FC Hemel South as a well-organised Saint side took a 1-0 lead at half time with a goal from Sam Hicks but a poor second half performance saw the Saints let in six goals to lose 6-1. Right wing-back Joe Renwick made some good runs forward and he also never let his opponents get past him and so he richly deserved his man of the match title.

 A goal from Louis Warren in the first half and one from Oliver Wynne in the second period gave the 14 South a 2-1 home in the Challenge Cup over Harpenden Colts Tornadoes.

 

WATFORD FRIENDLY LEAGUE

At home to Wingate & Finchley White saw the 18 South cruise to a 5-2 victory after they had led 3-0 at half time with man of the match Adam Pringle scoring the first goal for the Saints with the dynamic Ross Weaver scoring the other two. In the second half their were further goals from Joe Casali and Harrison Arnold whilst Ross Weaver was denied his hat-trick when as he was just about to tap the ball into an empty net the match referee Tony Pringle(father of Adam) blew the whistle for full time and just before Christmas as well to spoil the fun, bah humbug that's what I say. The Saints keeper Arthur McCann pulled off some excellent saves during the match to stop Wingate from pulling more goals back.

Also, at home were the 18 Central and they took part in an exciting match with the visitors Omonia Youth White just snatching victory with only a few minutes to go in a 4-3 score-sheet. Scoring the goals for the Central team were Jack Latter, Harry Peter and Hayden Tominey-Smith whilst Josh Daniel Cross was named as man of the match

At home to AC Finchley North were the 12 Orient and they romped to a 4-0 lead at half time with two goals from Alex Hails plus singles from Thomas Boca-Mapp and Bertie Postema. In the second period there were further goals with Lucas Berry scoring from acute angle into the far corner plus Josh Toop whose effort flew into top left corner whilst following a neat passing move involving 4 players saw Oscar Noble finish it off with a neat finish to make the final score 7-0 to the Orient. The man of the match was given to the whole team with Sean Gallagher deserving a special mention.

Away to Go Stars saw the 12 Spartans take part in a high scoring game or in other words a 12-goal thriller with the Go Stars scoring 8 goals whilst alas the Spartans scored 4 and scoring most of them was Dewayne Mitchell with a hat-trick whilst Cameron Girvan netted the fourth goal.

The 9 East played Harvesters Pumas away on their 3G pitch whilst all the others stood idle because they were waterlogged but I walked on them and did not get my nice shoes muddy so where was the water. I digress back to the match and Bailey Fennel scored a well taken goal following a long ball forward from Jakub Milas whilst Ollie Lee had a cracking shot that hit the top of the crossbar and went over. Next Ollie Lee struck a free kick that was pushed around the far post, but Ollie Lee did get the goal he deserved towards the end of the match with both teams scoring goals. Tezza's man of the match was awarded to keeper Jakub Miklas.

St Albans City Youth FC - Match Reports w/e 9th December 2018

 

EASTERN JUNIOR ALLIANCE

The 14 EJA played Panshanger Panthers away in the 3rd round of the County Cup and in a scrappy and windy conditions saw the young Saints progress to the next round with a 4-1 victory. Scoring the goals for the 14 EJA were BEN FREESTONE with two whilst both PEREZ WATERBERG and JAKE BERRY scored one apiece.

Also away in the County Cup were the 16 EJA and they were at Sawbridgeworth Town Juniors who are in 2nd spot of the Premier Division in the Mid Herts Rural Minors League and very early on in the match saw Jack McShane whip the ball across from the left wing whereupon Joe Vance on the far side of the box saw his firm strike blocked by the Sawbridgeworth Town keeper Finn MacMillan. 

The Saints after a couple of more attacks opened the scoring when Joe Vance hit a free kick into the box which saw Jack McShane's fine low strike pushed out by MacMillan only to the feet of BRADLEY YOUNG who instantly smashed the ball into the top left-hand corner to make it 1-0.

Bradley Young nearly made it 2-0 when his low shot on the turn from the edge of the box saw the ball just creep past the far upright by an inch or two. Next Jack McShane unleashed a rising drive from 20 yards out which just sailed over the top of the crossbar. It then became 2-0 when Ben Kirby swept the ball over from right wing which saw Young touch the ball into the path of BENNY STACEY who instantly buried the ball into the bottom left corner.

Next up was the Jack McShane road show as first he had a low shot blocked and then from a Vance corner kick saw his firm header go just over the crossbar. Next up McShane had cracking strike saved low down by a good stop from Finn MacMillan.

Early into the second half Louie Hollington for the hosts crashed a shot into the side netting and he had another firm effort block by Harry Brady. Despite with the very strong wing in their favour in the second period the 16 EJA did not really get the breakthrough they thought they would but then a long kick forward from Ollie Seeby saw JACK McSHANE outpace his marker and as MacMillan came after off his line saw McSHANE drill the ball low past him and into the far left corner to make the final score 3-0. Finn MacMillan then pulled off a tremendous save when he tipped around the far post a sizzling low strike from Jack McShane to stop it becoming 4-0.

Making a clean sweep of the weekend were the 18 EJA when they won 4-2 away to Grays Athletic EJA in a league match. The Saints started brightly with both teams looking to play good football on the perfect 4G pitch. The 18 EJA went close with Billy Owen putting through James Lawrence who just failed to lift the ball over the Grays advancing keeper. The Saints took the lead from a corner which was taken by Ryan Orde who was assisted by Dan Banerjee who quickly found BILLY OWEN in the box who calmly slotted the ball home into the bottom corner. Grays equalised on 35 minutes following a good move down the right which saw the ball pulled back from the bye line and a quality first time finish. 

Just before half time the Saints won a free kick on the left just inside the Grays half which saw the delivery find James Lawrence with his back to the goal who instantly laid the ball off to TOM CARMICHAEL who shifted the ball onto his right foot and smashed an unstoppable effort into the bottom left corner. The Saints continued to look good in the second half moving the ball quickly and soon it became 3-1 when Tom Carmichael setup BILLY OWEN who got his second of the day with another good finish. The 18 EJA then went further ahead following a good move from the back found James Lawrence who played a through ball inside the Grays centre half to JONNY BROWN for a 1 on 1 with the keeper and he slotted home into the bottom corner to make the score 4-1. As both sides began to tire spaces began to appear and Grays pulled a goal when their striker found himself free down the right whereupon he struck a cracking shot into the top corner to make the final score 4-2 to the Saints.

There was joint man of the match and it was shared between Finn Murphy for an excellent display in a holding midfield position and Dan Bannerjee who was outstanding in defence. It was a tough decision as the whole team were superb.

Next week the 18 EJA are away to Croxley Green in the County Cup.

The Saints nearly made it 2-0 when James Lawrence left foot shot was smartly saved by the Ilford keeper. The visitors looked dangerous and came close to an equaliser with their striker shooting narrowly wide. On 40 minutes the Saints right, back JARVIS WILKINS picked up a pass from Brad Simm and smashed his shot into the left corner making it 2-0 at half time.

With four minutes to go a cross from the right which found James Lawrence who cushioned a volley back into the box where BILLY OWEN lashed the ball into the net for a 5-1 victory and also move into the quarter-finals.

Next up Jack Kelly had a good long-range shot pushed around the post by the first of many fine saves by the Hitchin keeper Max Burrell whilst following a good cross into the box saw Jack Kelly's downward header bounce just over the bar.

Then Sean Walsh was the next into action with a sizzling shot tipped around the post by Burrell whilst it was Jack McShane's turn to hit the upright with a good low strike following yet another good ball from Joe Vance. Bradley Young had a couple efforts saved by Max Burrell and then with a few minutes to go before half time saw the young Saints go 2-0 up when a Jack Kelly corner kick saw JACK McShane send a downward header which skidded off the wet surface in front of goal and the ball whizzed through past the keeper and a couple of defenders and into the back of the net.

Early into the second half saw Ajay Lidder for Hitchin have his fine shot pushed away by Billy Thomson and Joe Nwaeji following up saw his effort rebound back off the foot of the near post. Bradley Young had a dangerous cross punched clear by Max Burrell and then the young Saints went 3-0 up. A attack down the right wing saw Joe Vance latch onto the ball and after skipping past a defender he sent over a deep cross to the back post whereupon JUDE EVANS sent a powerful header into the back of the net. It then became 4-0 when first Bradley Young had a shot blocked whilst Jack McShane saw his effort pushed out by Burrell and JUDE JAMES following up swept the loose ball home.

With more pressure the 16's EJA scored another goal to go 5-0 up with the best goal of the match when Bradley Young played a short corner kick to JOE VANCE and as cut in from the left, he unleashed a cracking shot from the edge of the box that flew into the top right hand corner of the net.

After this it should have become 6-0 when Benny Stacey was brought down in the box, but Bradley Young's penalty kick saw Max Burrell again produce a magnificent save when he guessed right and dived to his right to push the well struck spot kick away which both sets of supporters applauded. Max Burrell then thwarted Bradley Young again when Young saw his cracking goal-bound shot tipped around the far post by yet another good save from the Hitchin custodian.

Well there was another goal, and this was scored late on when a Joe Vance corner kick fell for BENNY STACEY to hit a low shot home from ten yards to make the final score 6-0.  Just before the final whistle the Saints keeper Billy Thomson made a brilliant double save to make sure Hitchin did not pull a goal back.

Before the match Gary McShane was boring everybody in the car as we travelled to Hitchin as he was telling us about the time when scored a goal for St Albans City at Hitchin Town's Top Field, mind you it was for the Reserve Team. Still as I said he scored that is all that matters. Well done Gary and to Jack (a chip of the old block).

The 14's EJA had a comprehensive win away at the top of the league opposition Bishops Stortford by winning the match by five goals to nil. Scoring the goals in the Saints superb performance was JOSEPH BEARDON(penalty), BEN FREESTONE, PEREZ WATERBERG, JAMIE BREEN and a cracker from SAM EVANS.

 

WEST HERTS YOUTH LEAGUE 

The 18 Orient took an early lead in their home match with Abbots Youth Blue but then they took their eye off the ball and found themselves 3-1 down at half time and with only five minutes saw the Orient had knuckled down and score was now 4-4.

The 15 South played Tring Tornadoes Panthers in the County Cup and after 25 minutes they were 2-0 down following two pieces of poor defending and then a well struck shot from Sam Hicks made it 2-1.

Victoria despite being on top in the second half let Chorleywood in to score an equaliser then Alex Strazza put Archie Hobbs in and his shot right across the goal found the far corner to put the young Saints 2-1 up. Ollie Mullen then scored a lovely individual goal when he rounded the keeper and slotted the ball home whilst Ashton Latter cut inside from a ball into the box and made the final score 4-1 with a tidy left foot shot. This was a better performance from the boys with them looking forward to next week’s County Cup tie. The man of the match went to the outstanding Archie Hobbs.

It was not the 12 South's day as they had two goals disallowed against Bedmond Youth away and these efforts were scored by Sam Estell and Owen Weaver with both of them hitting the post as well whilst a fine shot from Ryan Kennedy hit the crossbar, so you see it was not there day.

St Albans City Youth FC - Match Reports w/e 25th November 2018

 

WEST HERTS YOUTH LEAGUE 

At home to Park Street saw the dynamite brothers Henry Piekarczyk and George Piekarczyk score three goals between them with the latter getting two of them as the 18 North went on to win 4-2. Scoring the fourth goal for the North was Jack Hughes whilst the talented Archie Hall was named man of the match.

The 18 West were in good form as they won 7-3 away at Oxhey Jets with the goalscorers being Adam Johnson 2, Kishan Dhivar, Ousama Moutiq, William Skinner, Gideon Rowland and finally Will Shepherd.

In the Junior League Cup quarter-finals saw the 18 Orient progress to the semi-finals after a 6-1 win at Hemel Youth Blues. There were five different goalscorers and they are Finley Lufbery with a brace whilst all the other four scored one goal apiece Matt Nash, Kwame Youri, Kai Takahashi and Rocco Rahho. The man of the match went to defender Matt Small.

The 16 Central played Harpenden Colts Tornadoes at home and at half time they found themselves 1-0 down and then early in the second period it became 2-0. Then started a great fight back with Daniel Onochie-Williams scoring a cracker from distance after a neat pass from Angelo Calatrava on 57 minutes. Jack Percy then made it 2-2 on 73 minutes when he seized on a opportunity out of nowhere from a harmless pass from Matty Bleakey to smash the ball into the top corner for fine finish. After 7 minutes injury time Harpenden broke away to score a third to break the 16 Central hearts to snatch a 3-2 win. Central deserved a least a point if not all three and the man of the match was given to Angelo Calatrava for his hard work in a holding midfield role.

Freddie Collins opened the scoring for the 16 East with a remarkable volley scorpion kick which came from a corner kick into the box in there away match against Hemel White. the hosts hit back to make 1-1 at half time. In the second half the man of the match for the East Dylan Winfield was brought down in the box and up stepped Connor Robinson to drive the resulting spot kick home to make it 2-1. In the last minute of the game Hemel scored another equaliser to make the final score 2-2. The Freddie Collins goal was possibly captured on video - a thing of rare wonder!

Away to Evergreen Youth were the 16 West and they won 4-0 and scoring all four of the goals with some deadly finishing was David Joyner and he also picked up the man of the match award as well.

The 16 Orient lost 5-2 at home to Chorleywood Vipers with Harry Turner scoring both of the Orient's goals one of which was a cracking low drive into the bottom corner of the net.

Away to Wheathampstead Wanderers Tigers were the 16 North and despite a fine goal from Alex Kouda the North eventually lost 2-1 with the William Shakespeare of football Max Robertson being named the man of the match.

The 15 Boreal won 2-0 at home to Evergreen Youth with Ben Wick hitting the back of the net twice for both of the goals with striker Tom Randall winning the man of the match for all of his hard running up front.

Playing some lovely passing football in the first half saw the 15 South deservedly take the lead against Hemel Town South when Alex Lawlor headed home following a vicious free kick from Tom Every rebounded back off the crossbar. Unfortunately, in the second half Hemel gained more of the possession to score 3 goals to win 3-1. Centre back Ollie Giles who foiled most of the attacks with his pace and tackling deserved his man of the match award.

In the Challenge Cup saw the 14 South take on Evergreen Youth Colts away and in a exciting match eventually saw the South run-out 5-2 winners. Getting on the score-sheet for the 14 South were Charlie Johnson 2, Matthew Martin, Max Grace plus one from the midfield dynamo and man of the match Louis Warren.

Jamie Liversidge pounced in the second half to score the only goal of the match for the 14 West to give them a 1-0 away win at Aston Clinton Colts with Christy Shaw who had a very game being named man of the match.

The 13 Victoria lost 1-0 at home to Berkhamsted Raiders Red. No more information.

The 13 West were half asleep in the first few minutes of the match against Wheathampstead Wanderers and quickly found themselves a goal down and 30 seconds into the second half it became 2-0. With 15 minutes remaining the 13 West finally woke up when they pulled a goal back after Isaac Templeton struck home a sizzling shot into the roof of the net. Despite the West pulling out all the stops as they pushed forward in search of an equaliser it just would not come and so the score remained at a 2-1 defeat.

Well this could have been the match of the day with nine goals being scored between both sides with the 13 Orient just edging it by a 5-4 victory over Evergreen Youth Jackals. Scoring all these goals for the Orient were Jensen Dean with a hat-trick plus one apiece from Oliver Rattle and Cameron Williams whilst Arthur Merriden who was either in defence or midfield played exceptional well.

The 12 Central were away to Chipperfield Corinthians and after so much pressure on the hosts the Central finally won 3-0 with three own goals (that must be a first) to move into the next round of the Challenge Cup.

Off the back of 2 defeats the 12 Dragons got back to winning ways in a comfortable performance against a dogged Watford Town side in the Challenge Cup with a 4-1 victory and it could have been more on the day. Two goals apiece from Mickey Napier and Dylan Norman were enough to see them through to the next round. The man of the match went to the Dragons skipper Josh Francois who ran the midfield from the first whistle. Ayaan Hussain was outstanding at the heart of the defence.

Also, at home were the 16 Girls and they suffered a rare defeat when they lost 7-3 to Watford Youth Girls with Mia Pinkham scoring two of the 16 Girls and in doing so took her tally to 19 for the season whilst the wing wizard and player of the match Maz Horne-Batet scored the other goal.

In the second half though it was a different story when the South staged a great comeback to go on and win 3-2 with Jemina Harvey scoring two goals whilst Mia Simmonds scored one. It was so hard to decide a player of the match after the brilliant second half performance that it was decided to award it to the whole team.

The man of the match was awarded to Wasim Boksh who worked hard in a central midfield position.

The Beast from the East played Croxley Green Black away and after only 7 minutes saw Finn Thomas play the ball through to Joe-Joe Colman who finished with a neat low shot into the bottom corner, 1-0. On 12 minutes it became 2-0 when Tom Merritt played the ball through and the Croxley keeper tried to dribble it back into area but Dan Cant dispossessed him and gently rolled the ball into the empty net. Next a long free kick from Jack Jacobs over the top found Finn Thomas who cuts inside and drills the ball into the bottom corner, 3-0. Just before half time Finn Killner wins the ball in midfield and plays it down the wing for Brandon Trainis to race onto whereupon he squares the ball across leaving Joe Ryan with a simple tap-in, 4-0 half time.

On 71 minutes the 15 East make it 6-1 when Brandon Trainis races clear and promptly smashes the ball into the top corner from 20 yards. Although Croxley Green Black pull another goal back the last shout went to the 15 East who finished 7-2 winners when Joe Stone skips through the midfield and plays the ball to Brandon Trainis whose cross-cum-shot was pushed out by the Croxley keeper, but Dan Gant was on hand at the back to send a lovely header into the back of the net.
