The U18s travelled to Wingate & Finchley expecting a tough game due to an injury depleted squad and only 13 players available including a call up for dual signed Jack Latter making his EJA league debut.

Playing on a good but sloping pitch at the Football Pad in Barnet Saints started the first half kicking uphill. Saints kept the ball well creating a number if early chances and took a deserved lead after 10 mins with a move starting from the back eventually finding Lawrence free on the right who beat the defender and found Lankshear who finished in the bottom corner. Saints continued to control the game and went 2 up from another good move down the right Orde found Latter in the box who squared to Lawrence who made no mistake from 8 yards out. With seconds left Lawrence found Orde who was fouled 30 yards out. Orde stepped up and hit a fantastic free kick over the wall into the top corner. 3-0 to the young Saints at half time.

The half time team talk was easy more of the same keep possession and take advantage of coming down the slope.

The lads did just that and quickly went 4 up with Lankshear picking the ball up on the left drove into the box and found Lawrence who coolly finished for his second of the game. The 5th came from an Orde corner from the right a floated delivery into the 6-yard box found Banerjee who slotted home from close range.

With Wingate’s resolve depleted and Saints looking dangerous with every attack Owen, returning from injury was put through down the left drove into the box and pulled back to Lankshear who had made a superb 3rd man run picked the ball up shifted onto his right foot and finished into bottom corner. No 7 came from another Orde corner with Banjees header finding the net for his second. 

Lankshear got no 8 and a well-deserved hat trick following an assist from Latter and with seconds left Wilkins went on a dangerous run from right back rode 2 heavy tackles with ref playing advantage he pulled back for Hossen on the edge of the box who beat two defenders and finished into the bottom corner.
