St Albans City Youth - Boys

 

Under 18

 

In the WFL quarter-final of the League Cup saw the 18 East beat Hadley Wood & Wingate Foxes 5-0 with two goals from Cain Joseph and one each from Gio Basile and Joe Vance whilst man of the match Ollie Hann also popped up with goal as well.

 

The 18 Orient were away to Aston Clinton Cobras in round one of the Junior League Cup in the WHYL and after extra time the score remained at 3-3 and so onto the dreaded penalty shootout which saw the Saints bow out 4-2. Scoring the goals for Orient were Zach Quinn, Kwame Youri and Harrison Bean whilst scoring the penalty spot were Matt Nash and Kai Takahashi whilst defender Matt Turner was named man of the match.

 

The 18 South were away to Whetstone Wanderers Panthers and despite putting in a battling performance they gradually went down 7-2 to three late goals. Scoring the goals for the South were Harrison Arnold and Jack Fletcher whilst Fin Banks who worked hard up front was named man of the match.

 

Away in division two of the WHYL saw the 18 North come from being a goal down to win 3-2 against Hemel Town Red with goals from Jack Hughes with two plus one from man of the match Matt Breeze.

 

Under 16

 

The 16's EJA drew at home against Hitchin Town in the league and the Saints kicked up the hill in the first half that was evenly contested. following a swift move down the right wing saw Hitchin find their number 9 in the box with his back to the goal who instantly rolled the Saints defender before slotting home into the bottom corner to give them a 1-0 lead. The Saints worked hard on a difficult surface, but they couldn't find that equaliser and went in at the break 1-0 down. In the second half the Saints 16 EJA upped the tempo and were unlucky not to draw level with the Hitchin keeper pulling off a excellent diving save from a Tom Carmichael header. Finally, the Saints pressure told when Dan Banerjee hit the post and the man of the match Thomas Geller raced in to pounce on the loose ball to score the equalising goal. Although the Saints pushed forward for the winner Hitchin were still dangerous on the break however at the final whistle the game ended at 1-1.

 

The 16 Orient playing at home to Kings Langley Kestrels after a close match finally went down 4-2 to a couple of late goals. Scoring both of Orient's goals was man of the match Joshua Daniel whilst Ousama Moutiq had a good game in the heart of the defence.

 

Under 15

 

At half time the 15 Central led 2-0 away to Hemel Town Red with goals from Matty Bleakley and Matt Roome in a half which they failed to more of their chances. In the second half it was a different story as the Central switched their tactics to high press and it worked with Central scoring five more goals to win 7-0. Scoring the first was Jack Percy whilst Ollie Gilmour got the next one with a neat finish and then came a cracker from Daniel Onochie-Williams. The sixth goal of the match was scored by left back John McVeigh with a super headed goal whilst the final goal of the match was struck by Jonathan Hargreaves who saw the Hemel keeper well off his line and struck a 35-yard sizzler over his head to wrap the scoreline up. The man of the match went Matty Bleakley for his work rate and tenacity domination in the central of midfield.

 

The 15 North picked up three points at home with a 3-1 victory over Gadeside Rangers Tigers with goals being scored for the North by Arthur Corke who was also man of the match and one from Freddie Radavanovic and one from L Loughlin.

Under 14

 

It was the clash of the giants or in other words the top teams in the 14's Green Division of the WHYL and it was between the 14 North and the 14 East Blue with the North missing a couple key players and they also started with ten players and they were soon down to nine but they made the eleven players of the East Blue work very hard to take a 2-0 lead into the break. Dan Gant and Tom Merritt scored these goals whilst Dan Curran for the North saw his well struck curling free kick saved. In the second period a fine pass from Joe Stone to Dan Gant saw him make it 3-0 whilst Dan Curran for the North cutting in from the right shot just over the bar. For the East Blue saw Lucas Osborne hit the foot of the post only to watch the ball rebound out into the arms of a grateful North goalkeeper. As the match entered the last ten minutes with the North players gradually tiring saw the East Blue steam ahead as Brandon Trainis hit a glorious hat-trick for them to win 6-0. There was no individual man of the match as both teams gave it to all the members of their individual squads. The game was played in good spirits so well done to both teams says Tezza as he was there on the spot.

 

In a highly competitive encounter saw the 14 South runout winners by three goals to nil at home to Hemel Town Red with Tyler Channer scoring a brace of goals whilst Sam Hicks scored one and the man of the match went to Samuel Baker-Madec who was excellent in defence.

 

The 14 East Yellow were playing Bovingdon Thunder at home and once again like the match previously on that pitch saw them start with eleven players, but they were soon down to ten and then in the second half they lost another player due to a injury. At half time the scoreline was 4-1 to Bovingdon who had to work hard to get those goals with the goal of the match being scored by Finlay Thomas (oh how Manchester City could have done with one of those) when he cut into the box from the right an unleashed a shot that flew into the far top corner of the net giving the Bovingdon keeper no chance to make a save. In the second period the visitors scored two more goals to win the match 6-1 but it could have been a few more but for the East Yellow keeper Yaman Alrahabi who made some great saves during the match including one with the very last kick of the match when somehow, he stopped a cracking shot as he tipped the ball over the bar. As he fell to the ground he picked up an injury and was taken to hospital afterwards where he was kept in and had an operation on his arm. Get Well Soon Yaman, my man of the match, he didn't know where the ball had gone and asked did they score and of course we said no!

 

Under 13

 

The 13 West won 3-2 away to Harpenden Colts Typhoons with excellent goals from Dylan Bramall, Alfie Gauthier and James Liverside with defender Mason Kerr picking up the man of the match award.

 

The 13 South were at home to Harpenden Colts Tornadoes and twice during the first half they found themselves a goal down but each time they hit back to go in at the break drawing 2-2. Scoring the first half goals were Matthew Martin and George Beasley whilst late in the gate saw Fin Crumpton strike the winner from just inside the box for a good finish and for the South to win 3-2. During the match also saw Alfie Parkins hit the crossbar twice and being named man of the match was Matthew Martin who had a great game out on the right wing.

 

The quarter-final of the Watford Friendly League saw the 13 North play Watford Youth Sports at home and at half time saw the North trailing by two goals to nil. In the second half saw the home side step up a gear and despite the North pulling a goal back when Ben Freestone pounced on a poor back pass and fired the ball low past the advancing keeper to make it 2-1 they just could not get that vital equaliser. Working hard throughout the match was Jake Berry.

 

The 13 East found their opponents the Norseman living up to their name as they went onto win 5-0 as they gave no quarter as they surged through the East's backline. The man of the match was awarded to Alejandro Wood who kept battling throughout the match.

 

Under 12

 

Well this match had everything, plenty of goals, hat-tricks for both sides and a very late winner as the 12 Boreals took on Sandridge Rovers Tigers at home in a division five league match in the WHYL. At half time saw Boreal lead 2-1 with both goals being scored by Carlos Johnson and in the second half Sandridge hit back for the score to be 3-3 with their goals being scored by two from Max Barnett and one from Finn Elsmark whilst Boreals third goal was scored by Carlos Johnson which completed a fine hat-trick. As the game switched from end to end who was going to score that winning goal as both teams were going for it, well with only two minutes to go Max Barnett for Sandridge sent in a high looping shot that sailed over the Boreals keeper to make the final score 4-3 to the visitors, but what a game to watch. That goal completed Max Barnett hat-trick and for Sandridge central midfielder Joe Field was named man of the match whilst for Boreal their man of the match went to Carlos Johnson.

 

At home to Chorleywood Dragons were the 12 Victoria and they return briefly to the top of division one after they swept aside the Dragons in the first half by scoring four goals to lead 4-0. Freddie Roe and man of the match Alex Strazza controlled the centre of the park with Zak Davies coming off the bench to score two goals before Oscar Bell and Alex Strazza netted the other two goals. In the second period Chorleywood pulled a goal back o make the final score 4-1. For the Vics in the weeks to come it will a tough test ahead but the Vics are hitting form as they approach the business end of the season.

 

The 12 Orient in division three of the West Herts Youth League were at home to Harpenden Colts Harriers and with neither side getting that breakthrough the match finally finished all square at 0-0. The man of the match for the Orient went to keeper Arthur Merriden who with some fines made sure he kept a clean sheet.

 

In the Intermediate League Cup quarter-finals saw the 12 West play Nascot Wood at home with the keepers from both teams producing some excellent saves between them. A goal from Cody Smith gave the West the lead only for them to be pegged back by a deflected free kick to make it 1-1.

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.

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.

This was then followed by a 1-1 draw with MK Dons Trust which guaranteed the Saints the joint top position.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
