Under 15

After the 15 EJA had beaten Cheshunt last week in the cup 7-1 they might have thought this week's league might be easy, but it was not to be as in the end it was a very close match and they only just hanged onto all three points with a 2-1 victory.

Jack McShane went close with an early effort that curled just wide of the far post whilst at the other end keeper Billy Thomson had to be on his toes to push around his near post a close-range shot. 

McShane then burst clear after a long ball forward from Thomson, but he rushed his shot and flew just over the crossbar. At the other end Billy Thomson had to make another fine save this time with his legs from an effort from Teddy Bunn.

Just before the break the Saints took the lead when BENNY STACEY side-footed the ball home from twelve yards following a throw-in on the left to make it 1-0.

Two minutes into the second half it became 2-0 when from just outside the box saw JACK KELLY strike home a hard-low free kick that the keeper could not hold onto. Josh Forster nearly added to the score, but his sizzling drive flew just over the bar and then Billy Thomson made yet another good save low down.

Cheshunt stepped up a gear and firstly Henry Hobbs hit the post and then Jude James headed another effort of the line. Finally, Cheshunt pulled a goal back when Teddy BUNN slotted home after being sent clear. 

Next Fabio Carlino hits the bar whilst Teddy Bunn had a effort strike the upright but thank your lucky stars none of them went in and the young Saints held on to take all three points but only just. The man of the match must go to the woodwork for keeping out all those well struck shots on goal.

The 15 Central were away in the challenge cup to Hemel Town Blues and the Central keeper Joe Moss made three great saves early on to keep the scoreline at 0-0. The Saints eventually took the lead themselves midway through the first half when Matt Roome finished off a fine move from Dan Hussain. Just before the break Calum Cornish added a second to make it 2-0 whilst in the second period with the strong wind and the slope to their advantage saw Angelo Calatrava, Matty Bleakey, and subs Josh Penning and Jack Percy add further goals to complete a 6-0 win. John McVeigh helped to setup a couple of the goals whilst the man of the match went to Dan Hussain.
