Away to Croxley Green Black in a Red Division league fixture saw the 18 East WFL lose 4-1 with man of the match Gio Basile scoring their only goal of the match.

Under 16

The 16 EJA were at home to Cockfosters and it was a very close game in tricky conditions but the Saints took the lead when BILLY OWEN with a cool finish from close range opened the scoring after a good pass from Max Hodgson. In the second half after another good passing move saw Billy Owen on the right lay the ball off to MAX HODGSON whose low drive found the bottom corner to make it 2-0. Cockfosters then applied a bit of pressure in the last ten minutes and had a goal chalked of for offside. With only three minutes to go Cockfosters pulled one back to make the final score 2-1 to the Saints. The man of the match went to Thomas Geller after he gave an excellent display in the midfield for the second week running.

Away to Belstone FC in the WFL White Division saw the 16 East come away with all three points after a 5-0 win with them leading at the break 2-0 with goals from Ben Adshead and Harry Peter. In the second half Ben Adshead scored another two goals to complete his hat-trick whilst Jack Latter hit the fifth goal. The man of the match went centre back Sam Lailey.

The 16 Orient turned up with only 9 players due to half term holidays to their away match with Aston Clinton Cobras whilst their hosts had a full squad of 15 to chose from plus the Orient's regular keeper was missing as well. The Saints though gave a real solid performance and came back with a 2-2 draw with Joshua Daniels scoring both of the goals whilst the Man of the Match went to All of Them!!, well done boys.

At home to Harpenden Colts Whitecaps were the 16 West and they did not have a good game as they went down 6-2 with Aaron Peter and Adam Johnson scoring for the West.

Under 15

Both teams were low on players due to half term holidays but the 15 Central took the game by the scruff of the neck that took Kings Langley Lions by surprise with Daniel Onchie Williams scoring three goals in the first 11 minutes. Then Matt Roome scored two along with Jack Percy who also hit a brace, but Kings Langley tried to hit back, and keeper Joe Moss made three great saves to keep them out otherwise it could have been a different story. Just before the break Callum Cornish scored a goal to give Central a 8-0 lead whilst in the second period there were further goals from the Saints which saw them win finally 13-0. Goalscorers for the match were Daniel Onchie Williams 4, Matt Roome 4, Jack Percy 4 and Callum Cornish. The man of the match was awarded to Adam Bahouss who had a brilliant game at left back who defended solidly and supported most of the attacks down the left wing.

At home to Highgate & Muswell Hill were the 15 South and by the half time they were leading 3-1 and by the full time whistle the final score was 4-1. Scoring the goals were George Monery with two whilst Lucian Antippa also hit a brace as well. Harvey O'Toole also had the ball in the back of the net twice but each time they were disallowed for offside but each time it was not him causing the offence. Both Sammy Johnson at left back and Declan Jackson in goal both had excellent games whilst while I asked who was man of the match some cheeky father said Jake Fleming my son!

Away to Cockfosters the 15 EJA had to settle for a 1-1 draw after an even opening 20 mins the saints started to get on top with JOSH FORSTER, JACK MCSHANE, BENNY STACEY, AND BRADLEY YOUNG all testing the

Cockfosters keeper who again was in top form pulling off many good saves with helped keeping the scores level at half time the breakthrough came early in the second half when BRADLEY YOUNG was sent

crashing to the ground and with the ref pointing to the spot up stepped captain KYLE RAHHO he made no mistake sending the keeper the wrong way to put the saints 1 up the boys continued to dominate for much of the second half and with JASON FATI, BENNY STACEY, & BEN KIRBY all missing chances to put the team 2 up. With time running out Cockfosters forced a very late corner in which DERRY rose above everyone to send a thumping header into the saint’s net and level the score captain KYLE RAHHO had an outstanding game for city.           

Under 14

Away to Whetstone Wanderers Leopards saw the 14 North win 6-3 with Daniel Curran scoring one of the goals with a well-placed perfectly taken free kick which went into the top corner. The other goalscorers were Tyler Cadiou-McCarthy 2, Ryan Corcoran, Matthew Radelat and Jamie Godfrey whilst the man of the went to left back Charlie Parks.

The 14 East Blue drew 2-2 at home against Highgate & Muswell Hill Fire with goals from Lucas Osbourne and Dan Gant.

The 13 West lost 4-1 in a league match against Kings Langley Eagles with Raheim Choudhrey scoring for the Saints with Mason Kerr picking up the man of the match title.

At home to Colney Heath Magpies were the 13 East and although they lost 3-1 it was a close match with only the Colney Heath Magpies keeper Alex (The Lion) Moreno who pulled off a few good saves to stop the East from equalising. Scoring for the East was James Nash and their man of the match went to Wout Tuyls (new international signing from Liverpool) who had a fine game in a central midfield position. Charlie O'Toole also played well. Scoring for those Magpies who stole in around the back of the East's back line were Sonny Mead 2 and Felix Stanley.

Under 8

In a fun match with Royston FC saw the 8 North score goals from Will Anfield with a hat-trick and then two from Sam McCree whilst Henry Pagett scored a screamer that capped off a man of the match performance.

St Albans City Youth - Girls

Under 18

At home to Garston Ladies were the 17 Girls and they were not at full strength and at half time they were trailing 1-0 but by the full time whistle they had let a few more goals in so it was not a good day for them. There was a joint player of the match and it went to defender Jess Levy and midfield/striker Eleanor Keating.

Under 16

It was not a good day also for the 16 Girls South as they were playing Bedwell Rangers in terrible windy conditions and they also could not field a full-strength team due to sickness and only just managed 10 players for the kick-off. Bedwell scored five goals in each half and a couple on the second period to run-out easy winners. The attacking right back Gracie Fletcher was named player of the match.

Under 13

The 13 Girls South were in good form at home when they defeated Bedwell Rangers Hawks 11-1 with Rosie Littlechild leading the way with five tremendous goals. The other scorers were Jamie Curtain 4, Faine Harper, and Sophie Grant who was also voted Girl of the Match by Bedwell Rangers.

Playing against last season's league champions and the county cup winners were the 13 Girls North and they earned a very creditable 4-4 draw against Garston Ladies Tigers. The North really blunted the claws of Garston as they came back from 3-2 down at half time to earn a point. Player of the match Tatyana Barton scored two of the goals whilst Olivia Pickersgill and Kiera Ward were the other scorers.

Under 12

The 12 Girls South were playing Bury Rangers and scoring a goal apiece for them were Mia Simmonds and player of the match Grace McMurray who worked hard throughout the whole of the game with the final score being 3-2 to Bury.

Away to Hoddesdon Town Owls Eagles were the 12 Girls North and although they trailed 4-0 at the break they fought back in the second period to eventually lose 6-1. Scoring the Lady Saints goal was Danford Thisbe with Ruby Peacock being named player of the match.

Under 10

Away to a very strong Ruislip Rangers team saw the 10 Girls North battle away but they just could not find the back of the net. The player of the match went to the exciting Rebecca Smith.

Under 9

There were goals Lauren Viney 2, Lucy Host, Holly Green plus two from the player of the match Aoife Flanagan in the 9 Girls Central match with Hemel Hempstead in the Purple division of the Herts Girls Partnership.

Under 8

The 8 Girls Development side away to Garston Wildcats played some great passing football and there was a goal from Demi Hall 5, Olivia Wood 3, Jasmine Mercer 3, Alexa Johnson 2 and Sophia Bridge. The player of the match went to Jasmine Mercer who during this week's training shown great understanding of the passing play and took this with her to the match against Garston. The 8 Girls team work during training really paid off. Many thanks to this week's great hosts Garston and well played.
