St Albans City Youth - Boys

Under 18

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.

Under 16

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.

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.

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.

COUNTY CUP 4th ROUND.

ROYSTON TOWN  15's 3   (Goals: Anthony Georgiou, Kian Harness, Jack Piggott).

ST ALBANS CITY 15's EJA    4 (Goals: Bradley Young 2, Jason Fati, Jamie Willing).

This proved to be an exciting match to watch and the visitors Royston Town with the game being played at Nicky B school on a 3G pitch and Royston after some early pressure raced into a 2-0 lead with two well taken goals from Anthony GEORGIOU and Kian HARNESS. 

The young Saints after playing some neat football hit back with three goals themselves to take a 3-2 lead at half time and scoring these goals were BRADLEY YOUNG, JASON FATI and JAMIE WILLING.

In the second half the Saints gradually took control with Josh Forster having a cracking shot go just wide and then Jude Evans heading the ball just over the bar from a Joe Vance corner. Bradley Young did find the back of the net again, but it was disallowed as he was just offside.

The Saints then went 4-2 up when Harry Brady played the ball out wide to Joe Vance who was having a dazzling time down the right wing and he hit over a perfect ball into the box where BRADLEY YOUNG racing in meet the ball with perfect timing and sent a powerful header into the back of the net for second of the match.

Although St Albans had a few more chances to add to the score it was Royston Town who scored the next goal when Jack PIGGOTT bundled the ball home to make it 4-3 and although Royston pressed forward for the equaliser the young Saints held on for a 4-3 win and a trip to Hertford Town in the quarter-finals.

It was billed as a top of the table clash and it certainly lived up to its name as the Saints came out of the blocks straight from the kick-off with Harry Brady firing in a 20-yard sizzler which flew just wide past the far post and then Jack McShane cutting in from the right wing saw his goal bound effort cleared off the line by Tariq Foster.

Josh Forster then fired wide whilst Harry Bailey had a fine strike go just over the crossbar and then Sean Walsh had a lofted shot go just over. 

Finally the first goal came and what a cracker it was when Jason Fati played the ball out wide on the right to Joe Vance and after beating the full back with ease saw him pull the ball back for JOSH FORSTER to hit a cracking shot that flew into the back of the net from 20 yards like a rocket and if the net were not there it would have ended up in Hemel itself. In the words of Tezza, it was a goal worthy of winning the League, F.A. Cup, the European Cup, the World Cup and the Grand National. (Answers on a postcode to me who quoted this first time around, prize one Mars Bar).

It was not all one way as Hemel tried to fight back and Joel Cook went pretty close when his well struck shot rebounded back off the crossbar

Joe Vance who was great on the right wing saw his excellent low drive pushed around the post by a good save from Hemel keeper Joshua Healy whilst Josh Forster went close with a effort that Healy saved low down at his near post. 

 With the clock ticking down the Saints scored their second goal as Ben Kirby played the ball to Benny Stacey who raced away down the left whereupon he swept a low cross right across the six-yard box and there was JOSH FORSTER racing in to drill the ball into the back of the net from five yards out for his second goal of the match and make the final score 2-0.

Disability Squad

Saints progress in the South Eastern Regional Disability 11 aside Tournament

The St Albans City Youth Adult Disability team played in the South Eastern Regional Disability 11 aside Tournament and finishing joint top and therefore progressing to the quarterfinals

The Saints overcame Surrey Welcome Wizards  4-1 with goals from Dennis Cranswick 2 and singles from Ali Vivado & Matt Dodds. This was then followed by a 1-1 draw with MK Dons Trust which guaranteed the Saints the joint top position. The Saints played well and were unlucky when a last-minute penalty from captain Adam Simpson went wide. Adam was outstanding during the tournament alongside strong performances from Chris Thomas, Sam Harris and Tom Ward.

Under 18

The 18 East played the joint leaders of the Red Division Alexander Park Youth at home and the East played their best football of the season they just could not take their chances against a very good team and eventually Alexander Park scored that vital goal to take all three points with a 1-0 victory. The man of the match for the East went to their captain Tyler Fennel with a fantastic performance in the centre of midfield.

The 18 South fought out a exciting 4-4 draw at home to East Barnet Eagles in the White Division of the WFL with the man of the match Harrison Arnold scoring a fantastic hat-trick with the hard working Ross Weaver netting the fourth goal.

Away to Aston Clinton Colts were the 18 North and they came back with all three points after a 3-2 win in Division 2 of the WHYL and Matt Breeze who was also man of the match scoring two of the goals whilst Jack Hughes scored a single.

In Division 3 of the WHYL saw the 18 Orient take on Watford Youth Sports Red and after a very close game with plenty of goals saw the Orient just pip it by the odd goal in seven by winning 4-3. Scoring the goals were Kai Takahashi with two and then both Tom Keating and Matt Nash with one apiece. The man of the match went to Matt Nash.

Under 16

The Saints 16s EJA lost 3-0 at home to Hadley. The match was switched to 3g at Nicky B due to Sandridge pitch not playable. St Albans started fast creating 2 chances from corners with the ball not bouncing kindly for them around the box.  As the Saints pressed forward Hadley broke away from their box creating a swift move clinically tucked away by their striker. Both teams continued to play nice football and from a Saints corner Hadley broke away yet again and scored another goal to make it 2-0 at half time. The second half was evenly matched until Saints conceded a penalty with a challenge deemed to be just inside the box which was slotted home. Saints heads did not drop with the lads pressing for a goal Ryan Orde narrowly missing with a 20 yd free kick just too high. As the Boys tired Hadley created another couple of chances one tipped round the post by Sam Galatis. Final whistle 3-0 to Hadley. Saints MOM Tom Carmichael for excellent display at centre half. 

At home were the 16 East and they are playing Northwood White in the White Division of the WFL and they went 1-0 up in the first half with a goal from Ben Adshead. In the second period Hayden Tominey-Smith made it 2-0 whilst Ben Adshead netted a second goal to make the final score 3-0 to the East. The man of the match went to Luke Smith who certainly earnt it after giving a great performance.

Adam Johnson and Aaron Peter scored the goals which gave the 16 West a 2-1 home win over Cassiobury Rangers in division 2 of the WHYL.

Away to Everett Rovers Yellow saw the 16 Orient hits three goals but the match ended all square at 3-3 though with man of the match Tarek Omar scoring the first goal and then up popped Joshua Daniel and Nick Curtis with the other two goals.

Under 15

The Saints 15 EJA were at home playing Wingate & Finchley and it took less than 5 mins to take the lead with BEN STACEY firing home from ten yards. The young Saints continued to press and both Joe Vance and Bradley Young had well struck efforts which smashed against the crossbar before BEN STACEY popped up to score another goal to make it 2-0.

  Next up to hit the woodwork was Josh Forster with a cracking shot that rebounded off the post before BRADLEY YOUNG found the back of the net with a well taken finish to make the scoreline 3-0 and all this inside the first twenty minutes.

The second half was once again all one-way traffic with shots raining down on the Wingate goal but somehow the young Saints didn't add to their goal tally but they did manage to hit the woodwork a couple more times through Josh Forster and Harry Bailey whilst Ben Stacey was in outstanding form flying down the wings for the Saints and putting over some great crosses into the box but the score remained at 3-0 as the young Saints continued their fine poor.

Now we come to the 15 North who lost 6-1 at home to Berkhamsted Raiders Black but no info provided, and the 15 Orient lost also at home to EB Lions 4-0 with Josh Haworth being named man of the match.

In the 4th round county cup replay which finished all square at 5-5 last week saw Stevenage Borough Black Sox just edge by beating 15 Central 3-2. The young Saints were missing keeper Joe Moss after his injury from last week’s match and so Angelo Calatrava stepped in and dealt with everything that was thrown at him adding an outstanding reflex save to keep it at 0-0 early on. The visitors though proved they were a very strong physical side and finally took the lead but Central quickly equalised with a goal from Calum Cornish. Stevenage then made it 2-1 but once again Central struck back this time with Daniel Onochie-Williams scoring the goal to make it 2-2. Some great defensive work led by captain Rob Brown plus Ben Sommerbauer in a holding midfield position made Central hard to break down. The constant threat from Jack Percy in attack made it look like it was going to be Centrals day but with extra time looming Stevenage grabbed a goal in the last minute to win 3-2 which left Central no time to respond. Man of the match went to Matty Bleakley for his creativity and work rate in central midfield.

In the WHYL Spring Cup Group A saw the 15 South come back from being 1-0 at home to Edmonton Rangers Cobras to go on and win the match 2-1. Scoring the goals for the South were Callum Cosgrove and Kai Henry-Smith.

The beast from the East which means the 15 East are on the prowl and making a late run for league glory when they defeated Harpenden Colts Falcons at home by three goals to one. Freddie Collins scored the first goal with a fine shot from 40 yards and then Josh Killick hit number two with a bullet header following a corner kick. The East's third goal was struck home by Anton Nicolas-Sahota from close range after the Harpenden keeper had fumbled a cracking strike by Nasir Zaman.

Under 14

In a top of the table clash saw 4th spot 14 South play the league leaders Evergreen Youth who are sitting on top of division 2 on 30 points and although the South battled hard with Tom Every covering every blade of grass and in doing so was named man of the match the South finally lost 3-0 but it was not a disgrace as Evergreen are proving a very hard nut to crack.

Krishten Cavaroee hit three glorious goals for the 14 East Yellow in their home match with Gadeside Rangers Black but it proved not to be enough despite the East Yellow playing well as Gadeside struck back to win 5-3.
