St Albans City Youth FC - Match Reports w/e 11th February 2018
St Albans City Youth - Boys
At home to Enfield Town Youth were the 18 South in a White Division league fixture and what a match it was with eleven goals being scored but alas the South were on a wrong end of a 7-4 defeat, but they did play well and were in the match up to the last 15 minutes when Enfield scored a few more goals to win. Scoring for the Saints were Harrison Arnold, Harrison Doyle, Fin King plus one own goal whilst Tom Kellard was named man of the match.
The man of the match for the 16 Orient went to Alex Sharkey in the Orient's 0-0 draw at home with Chorleywood Thunder in division three of the West Herts Youth League.
The score at half time was 0-0 in the 16 East's friendly home game with Omonia Youth Green but early in the second half a goal from Harry Peter put them 1-0 up with a long-range effort which caught the Omonia keeper off his line. A goal from Jack Latter then made it 2-0 before another goal from man of the match Harry Peter made the final score 3-0.
In the spring cup group, A saw the 15 South win 4-0 away at AFC Oaklands with goals from Lucian Antippa, Louis Baker-Madec, George Monery and Harvey O'Toole.
The 15 Central were playing Berkhamsted Raiders Red at home and despite them missing some key players and also having a few more not able to complete the 90 minutes they still managed to dig out a 4-1 win. Central were solid defensively lead by captain Rob Brown and key partners Elliot Smith and Ben Sommerbauer before a goal from Matt Roome gave Central a well-deserved 1-0 lead at half time. In the second half the big guns Daniel Onochie Williams and Jack Percy came on and started to terrorise the tiring Berkhamsted defence with Daniel Onochie Williams scoring two goals and he then setup Calum Cornish to make the score 4-0. A very late goal for Berko Red unfortunately denied stand-in goalkeeper Angelo Calatrava a well-deserved clean sheet. The man of the match went to Ben Sommerbauer.
Away to Herons were the 15 East and they took a 2-0 lead with goals from Josh Killick and Anton Nicolas Sahota put the East in command before Herons pulled one back and then Mustaqim Boksh scored to restore the East's two goal advantage. In the second half Freddie Collins rounded the Herons keeper to setup Nasir Zaman to make it 4-1. Then a handbag type scuffle between Boksh and a defender saw Mustaqim Boksh sent off and so the East went down to ten players. With 10 minutes to go goals from Nasir Zaman and Freddie Collins them made it 6-1 before with the very last kick of the game saw Herons score another goal to make the final score 6-2. The East still have an outstanding chance of league victory which is still on.
The 15 Orient played a very entertaining game at Watford Youth Sports with the opposition starting strongly with them taking the lead before Orient struck back with a towering header from Samuel Beasley. Orient took the lead in the second half through Josh Haworth with an athletic run and a firm finish at the near post where there looked to be no gap to squeeze the ball in. Watford came back and scrambled home an equaliser whilst some crucial late saves from man of the match Daniel Breeze made sure the score remained at 2-2. Worthy mentions go to Ross Hermon with a battling midfield display and Max Varney for some great set piece deliveries.
Away to Tring Tornadoes Panthers saw two goals from Sujad Hussain plus singles from George Sippetts, Mark Lake, Tom Randell and Tom Durrant give the 14 Boreals a 6-2 win with Jack Carmichael picking up the man of the match award.
In difficult wintery conditions saw the 14 South overcome FC Hemel at home 3-1 with Tyler Channer opening the scoring for the South before Hemel equalised just before half time. Man of the match Alex Laking Jerez who was a constant thorn in in the Hemel defence restored the South's lead with a well struck shot and then another goal from Tyler Channer ensured the Saints dominance with a 3-1 victory.
The 12 Victoria having no league fixture took on unbeaten leaders from division two Sun Sports in a friendly and were in control of the match throughout the game scoring four goals in the first half two of which were scored by Zak Davies which were well taken as he had a superb first half. Other goalscorers were Freddie Roe and man of the match Archie Hobbs who gave a excellent midfield display and although Sun Sports pulled a goal back the Vics went on to win 4-1.
There was a brilliant performance from the 11 South in there away game at Chorleywood Harriers especially in the last 20 minutes as a few goals were rattled in with James Beasley scoring two goals one of which was a superb volley. The other scorers Sam Estell 2 and Josh Smith with two goals also. The hosts themselves also rattled in a few goals as well.
