St Albans City Youth FC - Match Reports Post Lockdown 2 - December 5th 2020



We start off with the Girls as usual as they always get their results in on time, but they must thank the Big Boss Sarah Kropman who chases them if they do not send them into me on time. Sarah is on the phone constantly to me on a Saturday as she keeps checking who has texted me or not, well done Sarah, I wish the Boys leagues had someone who would do that for each league and chase them up as well.

Let's get back to the football as we welcome the restart of the matches.  The STACY Girls 8 Orient were at home to Berkhamsted Raiders Green and scoring a few goals for Orient was Rosie Harris with a great hat-trick whilst Maddie Latham scored one and Chloe Wainer who worked hard throughout the whole of the game was named player of the match.

Also at home were the STACY Girls 9 Central and they were playing Chipperfield Corthinians Girls and scoring two goals for Central was Jessica Kutcher whilst Evie Rosenheim, Tegan Broadhurst and Bella Bachelor all scored one apiece. The player of the match was awarded to Jasmine Noorian for her work rate during the whole of the game.

Two STACY Girls teams played each other, and they were the 9 Romans and the 9 Wildcats and there were plenty of goals in this match and scoring them were Grace Fergie with 5 who led the way. The other scorers were Amelia Foils 2, Bonnie Maclean 2, Nadeen Kelifa Young 2, Amelia Ramirez, Edie Launchbury and Abi Tierney.

Another team that was at home were the STACY Girls 10 Central and they led 2-0 at half time against Berkhamsted Raiders Galatics with firstly a brilliant strike from Elizabeth Ramage whilst this was quickly followed by another goal and this was scored by Daisy Oaten. In the second half Poppy Miller scored an amazing goal after a fantastic solo run in which she weaved her way past quite a few of the Berko players before she went around the keeper and calmly slotted the ball home. All the Girls put in memorable performances whilst the player of the match went to goalkeeper Liana Sprunt who was really on fire between the sticks.

The STACY Girls 10 Romans played Ware Youth at home and player of the match for the Romans went Annabel Latham.

What is that song, Love is like a Butterfly and yep that is who the STACY Girls 11 Central played at home, Abbey Girls Butterflies and scoring a goal for the young Saints was Jasmine Mercer whilst Millie Lindsay picked up the player of the match award.

Away to Bury Rangers were the STACY Girls 11 Wildcats and scoring an early goal for them was Georgia Tongue and then up popped Evia Dullaghan-Stone who netted two goals before half time to make it 3-0 at the break. In the second half a bit of pressure from the home team saw Evia Dullaghan-Stone score a couple of more goals to take her tally to 4 for the match. This was a brilliant team performance with each Girl playing their part whilst Emily Dormer was named player of the match. 

The STACY Girls 12 Central lost 4-1 away to Watford Hornets but no other info was received as who scored the goal for Central.

Away to Hitchin Belles Whites were the STACY Girls 12 North and at half time saw the score remain at 0-0 but a strong second half display from the Lady Saints saw them go on and win 5-0. Scoring the goals were Shea Fagan with a hat-trick and then came a fantastic goal from Hacey Dyett as she chipped the advancing Hitchin keeper from the edge of the box following a great cross from Rachel Kincaid who herself went on to score goal number five. The players of the match went Shea Fagan and Mikayla Blessing who made several great runs down the right wing and in doing so created numerous goal scoring chances and this win now sees them go second place in division 3 of the HGPFL.

Playing away to Hemel Hempstead Town Red saw the STACY Girls 12 Wildcats go down 2-1 after a very tight game with Konni Hobbs scoring with Zara Stanley being named as player of the match.

The STACY Girls 13 North were away to Garston Pumas and they went on to win 5-2 with Esme Dickson hitting three goals whilst there were singles from Emily Edgecombe and Alessia Cipolla to round-up the goalscorers for the 13 Girls North.

Both the STACY Girls Under 15's teams were away and firstly we went to the North team who lost 6-1 against Potters Bar Utd with Abbie Bierman scoring the goal for the North with Jasmine Fells picking up the player of the match title. Meanwhile the South team also lost 5-0 and their opponents were Ruislip Rangers with score being 2-0 at the break whereupon the Lady Saints failed to take the chances they had created in the first period. The player of the match for the South went to Jocelyn Rennie.

The STACY Girls 18's had a local derby match with Oaklands Wolves away and they romped to a 5-0 victory with player of the match Maz Horne-Batet scoring three tremendous goals whilst Emma Judd and Sophie Veal also scored a fine goal each.

The Under 14's South had a convincing 5-0 home win over Chorleywood Common Harriers after they had led 3-0 at half time. Scoring the goals for the South were Ethan Howard, Ryan Kennedy, Freddie Yeo, and Max Butterworth with a fine brace. 

The Under 14's Arrows conceded three goals in a five-minute spell just before half time to go on and lose eventually 5-0 at full time.

Playing at home to Wheathampstead Wanderers Sharks at home saw the Under 14's Central drawing 1-1 at half time with a goal from Jack Reeves but in the second half the Sharks wondered what hit them as Central rattled in another 8 goals to go on and win 9-1. Scoring all these goals were Dean Bladon 2, Roarke Silcox 2, Jasper Button 2 and another two from Jack Reeves to complete his hat-trick and the Central not sit in second place in Division 3 of the West Herts Youth League.

In first place of Division 3 are the Under 14's West who beat Bovingdon Junior Thunder 7-0 after they had led 1-0 at half time. The West really kicked up a storm with some lightning strikes of goals coming at regular periods during the second half and the West's goals were scored by Harry Gaines 2, Finlay Murphy 2, Thomas Kirby, Matthew Gosling and Josh Ladyman.

The next match was slightly closer as the Under 13's Central beat Hemel Aces Tigers 4-3 after they trailed 2-0 at half time but they hit back in the second period with two goals from Harry Nsubuga and one apiece from Cian Stylianou and Harry Bottomley to snatch all three points.

Playing Croxley Green Black were the 13's Orient, and they ran riot in the second period to go on and win 7-1 after they had led 2-1 at the break and leading the way with the goals was Morgan Francis with a superb hat-trick. The other scorers for Orient were Adam Lorman, Oscar Pawley, Michael Wadsworth, and Archie Leggat-Martin.
