St Albans City Youth FC - Match Reports w/e 19th November 2017
St Albans City Youth - Boys - the rest of the reports will be published this week
At home to Whetstone Wanderers Panthers were the 18 East and they had a good 3-2 win with goals from Harvey Trounson, Joe Stockwell and man of the match Gio Basile.
Also at home were the 18 North and after a high scoring game saw the North eventually run out 7-4 winners over Oxhey Utd. Leading the way was Archie Hall with a hat-trick and then came Matt Breeze with a brace whilst both Robert Devine and Harrison Gates got a goal apiece.
Adam(Crisp) Pringle scored the only goal for the 18 South as they lost 7-1 at home to Abbots Youth Red.
The 16 EJA took part in a close an entertaining game at AFC Dunstable which finally ended in a 0-0 draw. Both sides created chances and they both had goals disallowed for offside and in the final ten minutes Dunstable hit the post and then Sam Galatis the Saints keeper tipped a cracking strike onto the bar and then onto the post. The Saints though held on for a draw with the man of the match going to James Lawrence for leading the line and tirelessly supporting the Saints pressing attacks.
Away to Cassiobury Rangers were the 16 West and after a very close match saw the Saints lose by the odd goal in a 4-3 scoreline. Scoring for the West were Aaron Peter, Adam Johnson plus one own goal.
The 15 West playing EB Lions certainly got their claws out as the West went onto win 6-3 with five different goalscorers. Scoring the goals were Beau Birne 2, Myles Donkin, Millan Sanderson, Alex Veizi and Matthew Willett.
Another team having a fine 6-3 win were the 15 Orient who played Evergreen at home, but Orient had to do the hard way as they were 2-0 down early on. They hit back though with five goals in 20 minutes with Samuel Beasley scoring a marvellous hat-trick and Tom Cox and Josh Haworth one each to give the Orient a 5-2 lead at half time. In the second half Evergreen pulled a goal back but Samuel Beasley struck again with his fourth goal of the match to make the final score 6-3. The Orient were just devastating in their attacking play with some clinical finishing.
Away to Watford Youth Black saw the 15 North rattle up a 7-1 win with goals from Arthur Corke 2, Max Robertson 2, Ollie Ring plus two from man of the match Dan Ludwig.
A off colour and disjointed performance from the 15 East saw them lose 5-3 at home to Cassiobury Rangers with the three goals for the East being scored by Anton Nicholas Sahota, Connor Robinson and Nasir Zaman.
In the county cup at home were the 15 Central and they were playing Lemsford Lions and they showed their claws early on by taking the lead after only four minutes. Orient though hit back and turned the game around to go in at the break leading 6-1 with goals from Matt Roome 2, Jack Percy 2 whilst Joshua Penning and Daniel Onochie-Williams both scored one each. In the second half Daniel Onochie-Williams hit a superb hat-trick whilst super sub Callum Cornish scored two for Central to run away 11-1 winners. There some great individual performances but it was Jack Percy who got the nod for turning the game around early on.
The Under 15 EJA played at home to Hitchin town the only team to beat them so far, this season. the boys soon put the visitors on the back foot and early chances fell to Bradley Young, Josh Forster and Jude Evans but on 20 minutes a great ball from Harry Brady found Jack McShane on the edge of the box and the striker made no mistake with a well-placed shot into the far corner. the second half started as the first with the young saints on top and the Hitchin custodian having to make a couple of smart saves from Benny Stacey, but it wasn't long before the second goal came when a well weighted through ball from Ben Kirby was met by Jason Fati who rounded the out-rushing keeper to make it 2-0.
Hitchin Town came back into the game in the last 10 mins getting a goal back but the boys held on for a well-deserved 2-1 win with Jamie (the Brazilian) willing picking up the man of the match.
Away to Echoes Amber saw the 14 Boreal win 3-1 with goals from Jack Carmichael, Tom Durrant and Jack O'Rahilly whilst Ralph Murray was named man of the match.
In the county cup saw the 14 South have not much joy as they lost 5-0 to Edgware Town and so the South's winning run ended against a top EJA side. The young Saints fought hard but just could that breakthrough although they did look dangerous in attack. The man of the match went to Sam Basilea for his tremendous tackling and also for reading the game well and so he fully deserved the man of the match award.
At home to Berkhamsted Raiders Orange were the 14 East Yellow and they had to settle for a point after a 1-1 draw and scoring the Yellow's goal was Krishten Cavaroee whilst Liam Karunanayake picked up the man of the match title.
There was not much joy for the 14 North in the county cup as they were playing London Maccabi Lions at home and the visitors play two divisions above the North and they gradually went down 9-2. Tyler Cadiou-McCarthy scored the Saints first goal and Joe Knee who was also man of the match netted the second.
A convincing 4-0 win by the 14 East Blue away at Whetstone Wanderers Leopards saw the East Blue stay top of the green division with Lucas Osborn scoring two goals and Dan Gant and Joe Stone both one apiece.
The 13 North playing Omonia Green in the league cup made hard work of the match in normal time but in extra time it was a different story as at the final whistle they had run out 3-0 winners. Finlay Eames-Illingworth scored the first goal with a 30 yard free kick whilst Jake Berry scored the second after a great turn and shot with Ben Freestone scoring the third with a thoroughly well-deserved goal.
A goal from Mackenzie Gibson was just enough to give the 13 South a 1-0 victory at home to Nascot Wood whilst Joseph McLeod was named as man of the match.
Away to Harpenden Colts Cyclones were the 13 West and they had a comfortable win by five goals to one with Chester Reynolds scoring a brilliant hat-trick. The other scorers were Alfie Gauthier and Alex Maiden with Shay Murphy being named man of the match.
At home to Echoes Amber in the Intermediate Cup were the 12 Orient and following a close game the young Saints gradually won 2-1 with goals from Archie Bentley and Ollie Rattle who was also voted man of the match.
Playing Bedmond Youth saw the 12 Central have a quite a good game by winning 8-0 with goals from Matthew Penfold 2, Matthew Croston 2, Jack Bromwich, Akere Ngu and finally two from man of the match Oliver Taylor.
In the Intermediate League Cup were the 12 West and they were away at Kings Langley Lions and the hosts had their claws cut with the West going onto win 3-0. Scoring the goals for the visitors were Archie Connolly, Jensen Dean and Charlie Clark.
The 11 South away to Bushey & Oxhey Hornets played well and scored goal through Sam Estell 2, Josh Smith 2 and Max Butterworth one with the man of the match going to Owen Weaver for a dominant midfield display.
There were plenty of goals at both ends in the home match between the 11 Orient and Harpenden Colts Lions with Bertie Postema and Lucas Berry scoring one apiece whilst Dean Bladon got two. Vicente Bender who played his first full game in goal for the team was outstanding.
At home to Croxley Green was the 11 Central and they hit six goals with goals from Tyler Hall, Steven Tchoudi, Jack Creigh, Josh White, Maxwell Butler and one from man of the match Jake Lee.
In a tough away game against Bury Rangers were the 11 Dragons and scoring a goal for them was Michael Napier with the man of the match going to new signing Joshua Nash.
Away to Southgate Lions were the 11 Arrows and they found the target with goals from Thomas Maher, Leon Negus-Roman and two for James Dodd plus two for Cathal Gleeson. The man of the match went to George Robertson
Jasper Button netted both 11 Saxons goals in their away match at Ware Rangers Flamengo which was played in rather wet conditions.
Evan Marr and Max Winders scored a goal apiece for the 11 Romans in their home game against Welwyn Garden City Typhoons with Jack Reeves being named man of the match for tireless running throughout the game.
The 11 East got back to playing some neat passing football in their game against Ryan Youth and scoring a few goals for them was Will Antcliffe with two and Ryan Kennedy with one. The man of the match went to Sean Gallagher for his tireless work in the defence.
The 9 North played Barnet Azzurri at home and they turned in a smashing performance with some great skill and some neat passing in each half. Scoring for the North were Ted Stebbens 2, Olic Fan 2, Dylan Eccles, Hugo Smith and Josh Cassidy.
The 9 Romans playing their first game for the club had a great outing against Lemsford Panthers and the man of the match went to Max Ramsey.
At home to Ware Lions Black were the 9 East and it saw Brian Baum score four goals whilst Will John scored a hat-trick. Toby Veitch played exceptional well throughout the match and there was certainly a special partnership between Brian Baum and Will John which could only mean more goals to come from this pair.
The 9 Central were played away and scoring goals for them were James Cox 2, Sam Peacock 2, Joshua Gibson, Eddie Hearn and Will Lacey.
The 8 East or the 7UP's as they liked to be called had a game against Croxley Green and scoring a hat-trick in that match was Junior Mitchell whilst Ollie Lee scored one. The man of the match went to Bailey Fennel (that’s my boy said someone, ok Stuart).
Nathaniel Parsons and Billy Stone scored one goal each for the 8 Orient in their home match with Wodson Park Rovers.
playing Potters Bar Crusaders away were the 8 South and Julian Jordan, Ashton Balding and Fin Seabrook all scored one goal each whilst Lucas Thomas picked up the man of the match award with some excellent defending.
Away to Chars Youth saw Will Anfield and Sam McCree score two goals each for the 8 North whilst Hektor Redel and man of the match Leo Antcliffe both scored one apiece. This was a fine display and the rest of the squad was Noah Fox, Henry Pagett, Danny Winders and Henry Schmidt.
Once again, the 17 Girls were not at full strength and they lost 10-0 at home to Kings Langley Belles with the hard working Jess Levy being named player of the match.
Away to Bishops Stortford were the 16 Girls and at half time they found themselves 1-0 down but two quick goals made it 3-0. The 16 Girls though hit back when Lauren Walker netted at the back post following a Emily Sibley corner kick and then Emily Sibley herself scored with a 30 yard screamer that flew over the keeper's head, game on. Bishops Stortford though spoilt the party and scored another two goals to win the match 5-2. The player of the match went to Zoe Chick for a great defensive performance.
The 15 Girls played Ruislip Rangers away and won easily by the scoreline 7-1 with both Mia Pinkham and Jess Simpson scoring two goals each. The other scorers were Sam Farrer, Sophie Veal and Mathilda Finburgh.
