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
The 16 South drew 3-3 away to Alexandra Park East in the Red division with Will Brown scoring one goal and Adam Robinson scoring two, one of which was the equalizing goal for the South.
The 15 North lost 4-1 away to Alexandra Park West with Andrew Gentle scoring the young Saints only goal of the match.
Also losing by the same scoreline 4-1 were the 14 East as they went down to Oaklands Wolves White with the man of the match for the East Finn Denton scoring their only goal.
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.
