St Albans City Youth FC - Match Reports w/e 3rd March 2019
EASTERN JUNIOR ALLIANCE
The St Albans City 16's E.J.A. were at home to Ware 16's E.J.A. in the league and it proved to be a very exciting match in that the young Saints snatched a late winner to win the game 2-1. The match was played in a very strong wind and with the visitors kicking up hill with the wind in their favour saw their passes forward running away in the wind. The Saints took the lead in the first half when BRADLEY YOUNG latched onto a back pass which saw him race around the keeper and calmly tuck the away into the empty net. They nearly made it 2-0 but Taro Chitepo well struck free kick was tipped around the post by a good save from Cameron Raghip.
In the second half the young Saints seemed to cope with the strong wind and created numerous chances which saw Jack McShane have a close range shot pushed around the post(no more Mars Bars for him) and then Cameron Raghip pulled off another fine save when Harry 'Chippy 'Brady hit a high ball into the box which took a wicked bounce and the Ware keeper just managed to push the ball over the crossbar.
McShane then had a header saved whilst a shot on the turn from Young from on the edge of the box flew just wide of the far post and then Jack McShane had the best chance to make it 2-0 when the mighty Joe Vance from out on the right whips over a great ball across the box and McShane unmarked at the back post saw him blaze the ball over when it would have been easier for him to score. Next up saw Tyler Parritt cracking strike saved at the second attempt by Cameron Raghip and then from out of nowhere saw Ware win a penalty which Tommy SHEPHERD duly put away to make it 1-1 with only a few minutes to go.
They game was not over as the Saints hit back when Tyler Parritt hit a lovely through ball straight down the middle and with a defender and a attacker both chasing for the ball it was BRADLEY YOUNG who got that vital touch as he hit the ball past the Ware keeper from inside the box and into the back of the net for a great finish whereupon he was instantly buried under a pile of his team mates bodies to celebrate an excellent 2-1 win.
The 14 's E.J.A. were at home Braintree 14's E.J.A. and they played some terrific football in very difficult conditions, but they turned a superb display and were just unplayable and should have had more goals in their 7-0 win. The goalscorers were MAX MACHEN 3, BEN FREESTONE, JAKE BERRY, PETER WATERBERG and SAM EVANS.
WEST HERTS YOUTH LEAGUE
In the 3rd round of the WHYL Challenge Cup saw the 18 North win 4-1 away to Cassiobury Rangers Leopards with Matt Breeze in top form by scoring a hat-trick with Cameron Clark scoring the other goal. The man of the match went to the strong Rob McKee.

The 16 West played a double header against Kings Langley Red and in the 1st game saw them draw 0-0 with Alfie Bigg being named man of the match in that game whilst you guessed it the second match was also a 0-0 draw with this time Samuel Pollard picking up the man of the match title.
Two STACY Under 16's teams played each other in a division 2 league match and they were the 16 East who were at home to the 16 Orient and after a very close game in which seven goals were scored saw the Orient just sneak it by winning the match 4-3.

The 13 Victoria were away to Evergreen Youth Wolves and if you could bottle a team performance and take it with you every week then this was it after Victoria had won 2-0 against a strong team that are always in for a shout for the league and county cup titles. The 13 Victoria were fantastic all over the pitch and Evergreen were lucky to have only lost by two goals as it could have been four or five. Victoria dominated the first half and Ashton Latter who had been feeling unwell overnight but looked very sharp once he was on the pitch and he broke clear following a through ball whereupon he promptly smashed the ball into the top right corner from 25 yards to give Victoria a 1-0 lead. The young Saints continued to play with lots of confidence and tempo and Ashton Latter picked up his second goal just before half time which he richly deserved. Although Evergreen Wolves pressed hard for a equaliser they found the home team's back four of Benjy Stone, Gabriel Urhoma, Alex Strazza and Zak Davies in magnificent form as they played really as a unit to stuff out any of their attacks. The man of the match was awarded to every player of the Victoria team.
