HERTS BOYS DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE

The 8 Lions played the 8 South on an Astro pitch as Highfield Park was waterlogged and, in this match, their were goals galore so wait for it as we log them in so here we go, Evan Love 4, Toby Thompson 2, Hugo Perez-Landrove, Elijah Bailey, Benji Mellors, Finley Maguire, Joshua Jury and Edward Beard. I am not telling which teams they played for as that would give the result away of what was a really exciting match.

EASTERN JUNIOR ALLIANCE

The 18's EJA played a midweek cup match at home against Ilford EJA and they start quickly and were cheered on by the supporters in the stand when the won a penalty for handball, but Ryan Ordes spot kick crashed against the crossbar.  The Saints continued to play quick passing football and were rewarded when Brad Simm slotted the ball to RYAN ORDE who made no mistake this hitting the back of the net with a clinical finish to a chorus of yellow & blue army. 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. Following the break Ilford put the Saints under real pressure for 10 minutes with Sam Galatis the Saints keeper pulling off several crucial saves and then the hosts won a corner after Jamie Armstrong was cleared. Ryan Orde put over a superb delivery which saw JAMES LAWRENCE bundled the ball over the line to make it 3-0. Ilford pulled a goal back with a well-deserved effort on 58 minutes, but the Saints hit back when the Saints man of the match Ryan Orde slotting the ball through to BILLY OWEN who finished superbly. 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.

Well this a result that would make all the supporters of St Albans City Football Club smile, here we go Hitchin Town 0 St Albans City 6, well it might have been the 16 EJA Youth team but it still was a great result. 

In the first minute of the game saw Ashley Hay break clear and his fine shot was well blocked by Kyle Rahoo and then the 16's EJA got off to a great start a minute later when Jack Kelly and Bradley Young combined down the left wing to setup JACK McShane who created space for himself inside the box to hit the ball into the far right corner to make it 1-0. It very neatly 2-0 when Jack Kelly again but this time with Sean Walsh found Joe (Mighty Mouse) Vance whose cracking low strike hit the foot of the post and rebounded back out. 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. With only a minute to go the 18 Orient surged forward once more and struck again to score another goal to win the match 5-4. Scoring the Orient's goals were Kai Takahashi with a excellent hat-trick whilst Matt Nash and Matt Small scored one each. The man of the match went to Etienne Hayward.

In a Junior League Cup quarter-final saw the 16 East go down 7-1 at home to Herons with them losing 2-0 at one stage before Connor Robinson pulled one back from the penalty spot but just before half time, they made a mistake which let Herons in to make it 3-1 and this sealed their fate. Early in the game the East failed to take their chances and they were left to rue these missed chances as they eventually lost 7-1. Central defender James Barwick was named as man of the match.

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. Both keepers made good saves in the second half but late in the game two more goals from the Panthers sealed the match with a 4-1 victory. The south man of the match went to James Justice for his strength in winning and passing the ball in a midfield anchor role.

The 13 Victoria also took part in the Challenge Cup and they were playing Chorleywood Common Dragons at home and they went into the break leading 1-0 when Reece Lia crossed the ball for Ollie Mullen to score at the back post. 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. They did score a goal which stood and that was tucked away by Freddie Yeo but Bedmond hit four to win the game 4-1. The man of the match for the South went to Ryan Kennedy who showed lots of versatility to win the award.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

At home to Whetstone Wanderers Jaguars saw the 16 South go in at half time 3-0 down which was a bit of a shock to them as they were hoping for three points but that is how the score remained for the rest of the match.

Demi Hall finished nicely from the penalty spot which was won by Charlotte Luckhurst and there was also a goal for Jasmine Mercer plus two for player of the match Sacha Davies including a stunning solo effort. Great Team display from all of the 9 Girls.

WEST HERTS YOUTH LEAGUE 

If you ever play the 18 North you might thing you are seeing double when brothers George Piekarczyk and Henry Piekarczyk are playing as they are in deadly form right now as they both scored a goal apiece as the 18 North beat Chorleywood Archers away 2-0 as the hosts could not get there arrows out of their quiver. The man of the match went to Jack Hughes who was really on form.

In a match of many goals saw the 18 West come out on top by seven goals to four in their away match against Wheathampstead Wanderers Tigers with the goalscorers being Adam Johnson 2, Gideon Rowland 2, James Knapp, Kishan Dhivar and Mazen Medhat.

Away to Tornadoes JSC were the 16 West and after seven goals between them saw the Tornadoes just edge it by winning the game 4-3. Scoring for the West were David Joyner with two goals whilst Joe Fletcher netted one and central midfielder Matt Mooney was named man of the match.

In the Senior League Cup quarter-finals saw the 16 Central play away to their fellow club mates the 16 Orient and although the Central were missing two of there 1st choice strikers but Jack Percy made a welcome return after being out all season with a broken arm. After five minutes Jack Percy opened the scoring after receiving a neat pass from Jack McVeigh and then Matt Roome made it 2-0 whilst Myles Donkin made it three before Callum Cornish added one just before half time to give Central a 4-0 lead at the break. In the second period both Jack Percy and Matt Roome scored another goal each to take their tally for the match to two each and Central finally won 6-1 with Josh Hayworth scoring a late consolation goal for the Orient. The Central keeper Joe Moss was in top form in that he made some key saves at cruical times during the match.

The 16 North were away to Evergreen Youth in round one of the Junior League Cup  and despite the North battling away throughout the whole of the match they finally crashed to a heavy defeat with the whole squad getting a vote each for man of the match so it was decided it was a team effort for the award.

Also in the Junior League Cup were the 16 East and they took part in a tense away local derby with Wheathampstead Wanderers Tigers and it was decided in the end by a very late goal from Freddie Collins which gave the East a 1-0 victory. Wheato defied the odds playing a team from a higher division and they pushed the Beast from the East all the way before that late goal from Collins decided the game. The man of the match went to Charlie ''Der Kaiser '' Barnett who was resuming his role at right back.

The 15 South were at home to Harpenden Colts Hawks and the saints got off to a slow start and they found themselves 5-0 down at half time and then early in the second half a vicious free kick from Tom Every found the back of the net for the South to pull one goal back but the Hawks hit back with two of their own to finish the match 7-1 winners. In the second period of play the South showed more commitment and fight and Sam Hicks worked hard and involved in most of the better moves during the second half and in doing so richly deserved his man of the match award.

No info from the 14 South other than they lost 5-0 away at Watford Youth Sports White.

Playing in round 2 of the Junior League Cup saw the 13 Central win 2-0 away to Sandridge Rovers Tigers with a goal apiece from Sam Hunt and Oli Taylor whilst Brandon Mitchell worked hard at the back to make the Central team kept a clean sheet and in doing so he earnt the man of the match award.

The 13 Boreal also played in the second round of the Junior League Cup and they won 4-1 away to Tring Tornadoes Tigers with Boreal showing some real quality football although not realising that they should have scored more goals. Scoring the goals were Toma Tashev 2, Jackson McArthur and Harry Muir whilst the man of the match was shared between Max Fearey and Tomasz Bogacki for doing all the hard work in the midfield and defence.

Also playing away were the 13 West and they had a match at Watford Town in the Intermediate League Cup and they went in at half time leading 2-1 with two goals from Charlie Clark whilst Ben Mitchell headed home goal number three early in the second half for the 13 West to go 3-1 up. Then it became the '' Charlie Clark '' Roadshow as he hit another 7 goals to finish the match with a triple hat-trick or in otherwise 9 goals which saw the West win 10-3. So the man of match of course could go only to one player and that would be Charlie Clark you guessed it right!  For Watford Town there man of the match must be their keeper who made some fines saves to keep the scoreline down.

Although the 13 Victoria out played the league champions and the reigning cup holders Harpenden Colts Hurricanes they had to succumb to a 2-1 defeat in a Senior League Cup quarter-final away from home. Scoring an equalising goal for Victoria was Reece Lia when he snuck in at the back post after Harpenden had taken the lead with a long range shot giving keeper Noor Dajani no chance. The Hurricanes only scored the winner in the last minute when they were awarded a very soft penalty. For Victoria both Alex Strazza and Ollie Mullen had powerful shots on goal which alas did not go in whilst picking up the man of the match title was Gabriel Urhoma.

Away to Wheathampstead Wanderers Sharks saw the 12 South lose 4-2 with goals from Tom Jennings and man of the match Sam Estell who scored direct from a cracking free kick. The South missed loads of chances which would have either won them or drawn the match any other day.

The 12 Arrows were again finding there target when they defeated Aston Clinton Panthers 6-2 away despite the Panthers winning two penalties of which they only put one away. The Arrows were solid in defence and were very positive going forward and scoring those six goals for the Arrows were Fin Murphy 3, Luke Collins, Sam McGorrigan and Leon Negus-Roman. The man of the match was awarded to Cathal Gleeson.

 At home to Bovingdon Thunder saw the 12 Central who couldn't weather the storm as they eventually went down 3-1 with Jacob Pearson scoring Central only goal whilst Jake Lee was named man of the match.

With just about as many goalscorers as there was goals saw the 12 West beat Aston Clinton Cobras 10-0 at home with man of the match Jasper Button leading the way with a fine hat-trick. The other scorers were Charlie Rose, Josh Ladyman, Josh Woodley, Luca Turone, Casey Fletcher, Rory Graham and do not worry I had not forgotten you Tommy Morgan!

Playing Watford Town away were the roaring 12 Dragons and they won 6-0 with Josh Francois opening the scoring and this was followed by a brace from Steve Jacobs and a hat-trick from Mickey Napier. This was the 1st of 4 consecutive away matches and they put on a fantastic performance from front to back to win 6-0 and it could have double if it were not for the Watford keeper. The man of the match went to Harry Barnes who gave an accomplished performance at left back whilst Dylan Norman was also outstanding in midfield.

 

EASTERN JUNIOR ALLIANCE

Well it was a good weekend for the St Albans City FC Eastern Junior Alliance Teams with all three winning and you could not wish for a better weekend than that. 

Let’s start off with the E.J.A 18's and they were at home to the league leaders Biggleswade Town who are unbeaten this season and both sides started brightly with some good football, but it was Biggleswade who struck first when their centre forward cut free into the box whereupon he calmly slotted the ball home. With 10 minutes to go before half time the Saints drew level when Nathan Hossen out wide on the left was brought down and from the resulting free kick 25 yards out saw RYAN ORDE step up and curl the ball into the top right corner to make it 1-1.The visitors continued to press and as the ball pinged around the six yard the Saints keeper Sam Galatis took a knock to his head and was replaced by his brother Zak Galatis in goal. In the second half again saw both sides looking for the winner and for the 18 EJA saw James Lawrence shoot narrowly wide before another break down the right saw EARL ATAT cross-cum-shot strike the foot of the far post despite the Biggleswade keeper getting a touch whereupon the ball rebounded into the back of the net for the winning goal and the match to end 2-1 to the Saints. The man of the match went to Ed Mann who stood in at left back and he did not put a foot wrong all game.

The 16 E.J.A. were away at Cockfosters E.J.A. and after only ten minutes play they found themselves 1-0 down but they quickly equalised after good work from Bradley Young who setup JACK McShane to fire home and for the score to remain at 1-1 at half time. In the second half following a good cross from Joe Vance saw BRADLEY YOUNG arrive at the back post and score with a thumping header to put the Saints 2-1 up. Cockfosters though hit back with ten minutes remaining to make 2-2 but the Saints went looking for the winner and got it in the last minute when BEN KIRBY drilled the ball low into the back of the net to give the 16 E.J.A. a 3-2 win.

The 14 E.J.A. played Saffron Walden E.J.A. at home in the league and the Saints tore them apart with a brilliant display of passing flowing football to go on and win 6-0 with goals from PEREZ WATERBERG who scored a tremendous hat-trick plus singles from BEN FREESTONE, JOSEPH BEARDON and JAKE BERRY.

FRIENDLY

The 10 West played the 11 Orient in a friendly today and won 5-3 with goals from Niall Rodrigues, Otis Lau-Johnston, Glyn Howells and two from man of the match Jack Burke. The rest of the 10 West squad was Ollie Shadbolt, Jack Johnson, Freddie Nelson-Thorpe, Rory Williams and goalkeeper Fin Murray.

In Round 1 of the Challenge Cup saw the 16 South play away to Maccabi London Lions White and the Saints were missing five of their strongest players due to those Damm school holidays but with five minutes to go saw them winning 3-2 and then disaster struck as they conceded two goals to go on and lose 4-3.

At home to Boreham Wood 2000 Red in round 2 of the Challenge Cup were the 15 North and they turned in a fantastic performance from the whole team to secure a victory against a much bigger and physical team. The North scored a goal just before half time to get the breakthrough and then kicking downhill in the second half with the wind in their favour they looked the far better side and hit another four goals to go on and win 5-0. Scoring the goals were Tyler Cadiou-McCarthy 2, Andrew Gentle 2 and Daniel Curran.

HERTS GIRLS PARTNERSHIP

The 18 Girls away to Kings Langley Youth Blue Girls lost 6-2 with Hannah Cowell and Jess Leigh both scoring a goal apiece for the Lady Saints whilst Anna Fuller picked up the player of the match title.

The 17 Girls could only field 8 players due the school holidays in their away game at Kempston Rovers Girls & Ladies but very sportingly their hosts dropped down to 9 players, but they still proved too strong with them scoring two goals in the first half and another four in the second period to go on and 6-0. The player of the match for the 17 Girls was Gracie Fletcher.

Away to Watford Ladies Harts were the 15 Girls and they fought out a exciting 3-3 draw with goals from Anna Marie Spears, Sophie Harrison and Nicole Plumb. Having a brilliant game was Francesca Bradley and in doing so was voted player of the match.

The scoreline at half time was 0-0 between the 14 Girls who were at home Potters Bar Crusaders and that is how it finished a draw but scoreline at full time was 1-1 with Kiera Ward scoring the goal for the lady Saints whilst Lily McMahon was named player of the match.

At home to Harvesters Girls saw the 12 Girls North earn a creditable point after a hard fought 2-2 draw. On 7 minutes Emilie Hicks opened the scoring but Harvesters quickly equalized and then went 2-1 in front before Emilie Hicks scored another goal her second of the match to make it 2-2 at half time and that is how the score remained till the full-time whistle. There was a joint player of the match and it went Isla Evans and Hannah Pope.

The 12 Girls South were also drawing 2-2 at half time in there away game at Harpenden Colts Hawks Girls but at the final whistle they had gone down 4-3. Scoring all three goals with a fine hat-trick for the 12 Girls South was player of the match Deenah Khan

Away to Hoddesdon Town Owls Girls were the 11 girls and scoring goals in the first half on this very cold morning were Alessia Cipolla with a wonderful strike from distance plus captain Teagan Scarlett also netted one. In the second period saw Teagan Scarlett score another three goals to take her tally for the match to four. The player of the match went Michelle Lam whilst goalkeeper Vanessa Cipolla did well and kept a clean sheet following this great team performance

Enya Brewster scored four goals for the 10 Girls Central as they played Hitchin Belles White at home whilst there were further goals from Emily Ball 2, Mia Di Trolio and Lauren Viney. The player of the match was given to the hard-working Aoife Flanagan.

Great all-round team performance from the 9 Girls who were at home against Bedwell Rangers Athletico Girls and the 9 Girls controlled throughout and were rewarded when Jasmine Mercer calmly finished a wonderful team move. Player of the match Olivia Wood bagged two goals in this impressive team effort, well played girls.

Away to Bedwell Rangers Dragons Girls saw Eden Boswell score a brilliant goal in the second half for the 8 Girls to roundup a excellent team display.

 

WEST HERTS YOUTH LEAGUE 

At home to the Wheathampstead Wanderers Makos were the 18 North and they made sure with the north wind blowing that they got the right result with a 3-1 victory. Scoring the goals were Ben Dimmock and those deadly brothers who have really got an eye for goal George Piekarczyk and Henry Piekarczyk whilst the man of the match went to Victor Dehon.

Playing Hemel Youth Yellow at home saw the 16 Central cruise to a 7-0 win with goals from Callum Cornish 2, Daniel Onochie-Williams 2, Luke Hill, Adam Bahouss and Matt Roome. The man of the match was awarded to the hard-working central defender Elliot Smith.

Xavier Clements-Kelly struck an awesome goal for the 16 West in their home with EB Lions and David Joyner also got on the score-sheet but it was not enough for the West as they eventually lost 8-2. Central midfielder Matt Mooney was named man of the match.

Well at last I have got his full name which means now I can say Teddy Cave-Schmidt scored a good goal for the 16 North in their 2-2 draw away at Bushey & Oxhey Lions whilst Sam Parker also netted a sound goal as well. The man of the match was given to defender Nathan Morris.

At home to Sarratt Rebels were the 15 Boreal and they lost 1-0 following a very tight game and picking up the man of the match title was the versatile Jack Carmichael who can play in either midfield or defence.

The 15 South lost out to a physically strong Watford Youth Sports side and went in at half time 2-0 down and then early in the second period they were caught on the break to make the score now 3-0. The South failed to convert a penalty as they tried to fight back especially when not long afterwards Samuel Baker-Madec found the back of the net with a vicious shot for the south to pull a goal back. Late in the game though Watford added another three goals to win 6-1 which gave the scoreline a total unrealistic view. Jake Leech was a constant threat up front and fully deserved his man of the match award.

The 14 West lost 1-0 away to Wheathampstead Wanderers Tigers and that is all I know!

Away to Kings Langley Red saw the 13 Victoria go down 8-2 with Ollie Mullins scoring both goals for Victoria and he also was named man of the match. Four of the goals Victoria conceded all came from corner kicks with Kings Langley having quite a few six footers in their team. Come on Victoria you need some manure in your boots to make you grow.

In round 1 of the Challenge Cup saw the 13 Boreal take on Tring Tornadoes Tigers away and Boreal certainly whipped up a storm of their own with a sizzling 8-0 victory. It was brilliant display from the boys as they dominated from the beginning to the end showing some quality football for the whole of the match. Man, of the match Luke Tunnicliffe scored a hat-trick and he was given the title for dominating display on the left wing like a real professional. The other scorers were Toma Tashev with a brilliant four goals which included some cracking finishing whilst Alex La Placa netted the final goal of the match.

Away to Aston Clinton Cobras were the 12 Central and it was them who had the sting in their tale as the young Saints went onto win 4-1 with two goals from Dean Blandon and two goals also from Josh White. The man of the match was given to wing back Joseph Golding.

St Albans City Youth FC - Match Reports w/e 21st October 2018

HERTS GIRLS PARTNERSHIP

The 18 Girls were at home to Kempston Rovers Girls & Ladies and despite both halves’ being very close saw the visitors score a goal in each half to go on and win 2-0. There was a joint player of the match and it was awarded to winger Phoebe Skinner and centre back Charlotte Banks who both had exceptional games in these positions.

At home to Flitwick Eagles were the 17 Girls and they raced into a 15-minute lead when Alice Benson raced through the middle of the park and after going one-on-one with the Flitwick keeper she placed the ball into the bottom corner to give the 17 Girls a 1-0 half time. In the second half Alice Benson's pace was just too much for the Flitwick defence and she added 4 more goals to take her tally to 5 and give them a 5-0 lead. Flitwick did pull a goal back very late in the game which made the final score 5-1. Alice Benson was voted player of the match for outstanding attacking abilities whilst Zoe Chick also picked up a player of the match title after she gave a solid defensive performance.

Away to B.S.C. or Bishops Stortford FC Youth saw the 16 Girls romp to a 9-1 victory with plenty of goalscorers and they were Sam Farrer 2, Mia Pinkham 2, Maz Horne-Batet 2, Jess Simpson, Sophie Veal and Ellie Flynn.

Despite the 12 Girls North losing 9-0 away to Hitchin Belles Blues there were still good performances from Hannah Litton, Hannah Pope, Isla Evans and Emilie Hicks.

There was better fortune for the 12 Girls South in their away game at Bedwell Rangers Amazons as they went on to win 3-0 with 2 goals from player of the match Deenah Khan and one from Stella Ekbald-Piscetelli.

There was another player of the match and that went to Erin Mill who unfortunately lists Arsenal as her favourite team.

The 11 Girls who played at home to Watford FC Girls Academy scored a fine goal through Scarlett Robb and were unlucky not to add more to their tally and the player of the match went to the solid defender Emma Bracey.

Another of the Girls team playing a Academy side were the 10 Girls North and they took on Pro Direct Enfield and the whole team worked hard so I am going to mention them all ok. Thegan Atwell, Amy Hargreaves, Masie Bierham, Sophie McMahon, Rachel Kincaid, Mikayla Blessing and Anna Metcalfe.

Away to Chorleywood Common Lions Girls were the 10 Girls Central and they had a good game with the following goalscorers Enya Brewster 4, Lauren Viney 2, Alicia Gibson 2, Holly Green and Mia Di Trolio. The player of the match was awarded to the whole team for a excellent performance.

The 9 Girls took part in a match of plenty of goals and plenty of action when they played away to Bedwell Rangers Athletico and scoring two goals for the 9 Girls was their player of the match Demi Hall whilst Sacha Davies got one. This game provided a good test for everyone and there was a clean sheet for Charlotte Luckhurst on her watch in goal.

 

WATFORD FRIENDLY LEAGUE

The 18 South who were away to Wingate & Finchley Whites won 4-1 in a White Division league match and scoring the goals were Ross Weaver, Harrison Arnold, Alex Banathy plus one from man of the match Max Bell who had a good game in the midfield.

Despite the 18 Central scoring three goals at home to Omonia Youth Green the visitors hit six to go on and win 6-3 with the three goalscorers for the Central team being Joshua Daniel Cross, Harry Peter and Alex White. The man of the match went to Sam Lailey.

Away to Oaklands Wolves in the League Cup saw the 16 South progress to the next round with a 3-1 victory with two goals from William Brown and one from George Monery whilst midfielder Sammy Johnson was named man of the match.

In the County Cup the 15 North played Herts Youth Stags and within only eight minutes play the North found themselves 3-0 down but they then woke up to hit back to make it 3-3 with two goals from man of the match Mahin Miah and one from Tyler Cariou-McCarthy. Although they created more chances they just could convert these and so eventually went on to lose 5-3.

At home to Maccabi London Lions Blue saw the 15 East take the lead on 14 minutes when Finn Thomas scored with left footed volley into the top right corner after a Lucas Osborn neat pass from the right. A minute later it was 2-0 when following a Joe Stone free kick saw Will Austen send a powerful header into the bottom right corner. On 20 minutes it became 3-0 after a Joe Colman cross from the right wing found Brandon Trainis inside the box and with a sharp turn and finish in off the far post saw the East complete there scoring and that was the only six minutes to turn up for really. Those 3 goals proved to be enough as the Lions pulled one back late on for the 15 East to go on and win 3-1.

Man, of the match for the 13 South George Dalton hit a hat-trick for the 13 South in their 5-1 home win over Harvesters 13 South with the other two goals for the young Saints in their 5-1 win coming from Jack Knibbs and Freddie Reeves.

Playing Protec Youth Red at home were the 12 Orient and Alex Hails scored their only goal in a 5-1 defeat and what a cracker it was, and the result was a little harsh on them as the 12 Orient did play very well indeed. Man, of the match Josh Toop was again brilliant in defence whilst Vicente Luciani had a outstanding game in goal.

Away to Highgate & Muswell Hill Panthers saw Dewayne Mitchell strike a fabulous hat-trick for the 12 Spartans but their wall of shields proved not to be enough as the eventually lost 6-4 with Zevik Cowell scoring their fourth goal.

Bushy Rangers couldn't stand up to the maundering 12 Vikings as they went on the rampage to score five goals without reply to win 5-0.
