St Albans City Youth FC - Match Reports w/e 25th April 2021

 

HERTS GIRLS PARTNERSHIP

The STACY GIRLS Under 18's who were playing away were in a rampant mood after they hit nine (9) goals past Welwyn Pegasus Girls in a Group A  match and leading the way was player of the match Bora Cela with a fantastic hat-trick. Also scoring three great goals was Sophie Veal whilst Harriet Lethbridge, Maz Horne-Batet and Sam Farrer rounded up the goalscorers with one apiece in this excellent team performance of attacking football.

In Group C of the HGPFL were the STACY GIRLS Under 16's North and they were away to Denham United Ladies Wildcats and the Wildcats were certainly kept in their cage as the North Girls won 2-0 with goals from Kiera Ward and Andre Leonidas whilst Hope Hume who had a brilliant game was named as player of the match. 

The STACY GIRLS Under 15's South continued the great form of the previous results above with a 8-0 home win over Belstone Youth Girls in Group C with the never stop running Mia Simmonds scoring four goals and it could have been more. The other goalscorers for the South were Maisie Humphreys 3, and Isobel Corrigan with one and there was no individual player of the match as the whole team were awarded it for their outstanding passing and play across the pitch today.

Making it four wins for Girls teams were the STACY GIRLS Under 15's North as they beat Garston Ladies Juniors Lions 4-1 and hitting three of them was the tireless Beth Sellar who covers the whole of the pitch with her boundless energy. The other goal was scored by Thisbe Danford with Evie Cussans who was in midfield creating the chances with pinpoint passing being named as player of the match.

In Group E saw the STACY GIRLS Under 14's South play away to Watford Ladies Harts and they earnt themselves a point with a 2-2 draw with Marelie Raath scoring both goals one of which came from the penalty spot. The player of the match went to the strong and tough defender Roslin McGregor.

The player of the match was Lily Latham who gave a solid performance at the back with her putting in some tenacious challenges.

With the score being 0-0 at half time in a Group C between the STACY GIRLS Under 12's Central and the Berkhamsted Raiders Youth Titans Girls saw the match really come alive in the second period with plenty of goals which saw the Central win 4-1. Scoring the goals for the Lady Saints were Holly Green with two well taken goals whilst both Emily Ball and Lucy Holster both scored each.

The STACY GIRLS Under 12's Wildcats and the STACY GIRLS Under 12's North both did not have a fixture so they said about playing a friendly and the match was played in four mini games so it could give both teams a chance to try out new tactics which included switching players into different positions. Both teams played very well but it was the North who took the lead in the first half with two goals from their player of the match Shea Fagan. In the second period Roxie Kosh added a third goal for the North whilst an excellent individual goal from Verity Lobina made the final score 4-0 to the Under 12's Girls North.

In the Pink division of the HGPFL saw the STACY GIRLS Under 11's Central play at home to Meninas FC Rio Girls and in the first half saw some excellent finishing from player of the match Aasha Barker as she scored a slick hat-trick. Defender Tilly Flynn received some high praise from the opposition for her impressive performance at the back with her fine passing out from there to start up attacks. Well played Girls for an excellent team performance with some fine skills from every player.

The STACY GIRLS Under 11's Wildcats had a match in the Purple division and they were away at Hitchin Belles Blues and Evie Dullaghan-Stone scored a fantastic goal which she curled in directly into the back of the net from a corner kick. The Wildcats also created numerous other chances during the game which they just failed to put them away. The player of the match was Sienna Sohata who made some dazzling runs up front. 

The STACY GIRLS Under 10's Romans had a thrilling match at Greenwood Park against Ruislip Rangers Clarets in the Pink division which saw both teams creating chances, but the match finally finished at 0-0 but not for want of effort by both sets of Girls. The player of the match for the Romans went to striker Eliza Maton. 

Also, in a Pink division fixture saw the STACY GIRLS Under 10's Central play away at Ware Youth Girls and there was goals Lilla Clark, Nell McKinstry and also one from captain Poppy Miller who also picked up the player of the match award. Elizabeth Ramage gave a fantastic performance in goal for the Central Girls.

The STACY GIRLS Under 9's Romans were away in a Pink division match to Chipperfield Corinthians Girls and scoring goals for the young Saints were Amelia Folis, Amelia Ramirez, Nadeen Kelifa-Young, Grace Fergie plus two for Bonnie Maclean who was also player of the match plus she had a fine stint in goal making some great saves during her spell there.

In a Purple division fixture saw the STACY GIRLS Under 9's Central play away to Chorleywood Common Leopards Girls and you have heard that saying " have you got a Tiger in your tank" well the Central Girls have got a Tiger in their team and that was Tegan Broadhurst who struck two superb goals, one in each half. The other goalscorers for the young Saints were Evie Rosenheim 2, Isabella Habbouchi and Jess Kutcher with all seven girls playing well.

WATFORD FRIENDLY LEAGUE

Away to Harvesters South in the Red division were the Under 18's South and they won 4-1 with two goals from Adam Robinson plus two goals from Kyle Rogers. The midfielder Gideon Urhoma was voted man of the match for the Saints.

The Under 18's South next played away to Boreham Wood Crusaders in midweek, and it was the clash of the second and third teams in the Red division and it was the Crusaders who snatched all three points with a 1-0 victory to remain in second place.

The Under 18's Central who are not having much luck this season entertained Edmonton Rangers Cobras and they found themselves 2-0 down at one stage but they hit back with a fine goal from Josh Penning which was setup by a neat pass from Callum Cornish. It soon became 3-1 when the Cobras instantly struck back to restore their two-goal cushion and then go on to win 5-1 eventually. The Saints just had that hard luck in front of goal and Matty Bleakley was named as man of the match after working tirelessly in midfield and Tyler Owens who was in goal had a brilliant game there.

Another home fixture in midweek saw the Under 18's Central entertain their local rivals Harvesters South with Josh Penning having a lovely chip shot saved by the Harvesters custodian whilst Matty Bleakley had two well struck shots saved at the foot of either posts. In goal for the Saints was Angelo Calatrava and he managed to make countless excellent saves throughout the match which kept the South in the game but alas just before the break he was beaten by a low shot into the bottom left corner to give the visitors a 1-0 lead at half time. In the second period saw Luke Hill shoot narrowly wide after a fine delivery into the box from John McVeigh and then Alex Sommerbauer went close at the near post and then John McVeigh was brought down on the edge of the box or was it inside, but it did not matter as the match official did not award a free kick or a penalty anyway. Harvesters again snatched another goal to win the match 2-0 but the Saints did give their all and worked hard throughout the match. The man of the match went to right centre back Elliot Smith whilst Angelo Calatrava in between the sticks (not his normal position) pulled off some fine saves which at times were quite spectacular, well done Angelo.

The Under 17's East and the Under 15's South had matches against HMH Foxes and Global Football Academy Santos respectively but once again Tezza has not received any information about these games. 

The Under 14's Orient consolidated their lead at the top of Red division of the WFL by beating Boreham Wood Youth Templars 5-1 away with two goals from Tijan Gerber. The other goal scorers were Ollie Jay, Luca Lepley plus one from Jonah Howego who was also named man of the match after giving an outstanding display in midfield.

At home in the Blue division were the Under 14's Spartans and they recorded a 2-0 victory against Northwood Red. Scoring the goals were Zevik Cowell and Stephen Touchudi who was also picked up the man of the match award.

The Under 13's Victoria took part in a scrappy contest with Enfield Town Youth which saw neither side getting on top and so the match finally ended as a 1-1 draw. Enfield took the lead in the first minute and it was not until with about five minutes to go that the Under 13's Victoria snatched an equaliser through Luca Ward with a close-range effort. Luca Ward was also named as man of the match for his midfield performance which he gave with lots of energy. There were also solid contributions from Thomas Hope and Aidan Keigher which kept them in the game.

The Under 13's Victoria played a midweek match at home to Colney Heath Magpies who only had ten players and they found themselves 1-0 down early in the match when L. Yasin picked up a loose ball and sent a delightful chip shot over Aaron Holsborough the Victoria's keeper to give the Magpies the lead. This early set back woke the young Saints up and they nearly equalised when Aidan Keigher struck a cracking shot which hit the face of the crossbar and rebounded back out. It was not long though before they finally drew level when Aidan Keigher after cutting in from the right drilled the ball low past Jamie Cunningham and into the far-left corner of the net to make it 1-1. Just before the half time break the young Saints took the lead when Aryan Bhagwati raced away down the left and then cut into the box whereupon he slipped the ball past advancing Cunningham to make it 2-1. 

Early in the second half Max Milton nearly added a third but his effort went just of the near post, but a third goal was soon coming when Aaron Holsborough who had now came out of the goal to play up front burst clear and after going around Cunningham the Magpies custodian saw him just about to shoot the ball home when up popped Aidan Keigher to take the glory from him to score from close range for his second goal of the match. 

Aidan Keigher then had a firm low effort tipped around the post by yet another great save from Jamie Cunningham whilst Aryan Bhagwati saw his sizzling low shot strike the foot of the near post and go behind for a corner kick. Later, Aaron Holsbourgh was once again denied from getting his name on the scoresheet when Jamie Cunningham pushed out his stinging strike but there was Stan Seeby on hand to tap the loose over the line to make the final score 4-1 to the Under 13's Victoria. Footnote:  Now where have I heard the name "Seeby" before, why is that right? Stan Seeby's dad Steve and Stan's Uncle Chris both used to play for St Albans City Youth whilst the latter also played for St Albans City FC. Wait for it there is more Stan's grandfather John also played for St. Albans City Youth as well, Wow three generations well I never!

Away in the Red division were the Under 12's West and they were playing Whetstone Wanderers Pumas and the match finally finished at 2-2 with Eddie Cullum and Kojo Quartey scoring the two goals for the young Saints. The man of the match went to the hard-working Ollie Flack.

In midweek saw the Under 12's West play away to the Oakland Wolves and their previous match this ended also in a draw with the scoreline this time being 3-3. Harvey McKessick scored two goals whilst Kojo Quartey added the third goal whilst Otis Lau-Johnston who gave an outstanding display on the wing saw him being named as man of the match.

In the White division of the WFL saw the Under 12's East play a double header against Enfield Rangers Black and both matches ended in draws with the scores being 2-2 and 1-1 respectively.  In the first match saw Leo Hooper-Walters shoot narrowly wide and Ollie Cox also went close and so the score remained at 0-0 at the break. In the second period Harvey Norton had a free kick which flew just past the far post and then Harry Murphy following a great solo run put the East 1-0 up. Next Will John curled the ball into the back of the net direct from a corner kick to make it 2-0 and then it was nearly 3-0 when a terrific thunderbolt from Ollie Cox struck the Rangers crossbar but alas it rebounded back out. The Saints keeper Seth Coetzee made a great save to keep the visitors out whilst Tom Luckhurst fired just over but then late in the match Enfield Rangers Black struck back with two late goals with the second one being a debatable penalty. The man of the match went to Ollie Cox.

In the second game which ended at 1-1 saw Harry Murphy score after he had run half the length of the pitch before slotting the ball past the keeper to put the East in front. New recruit Harvey Norton had a lively first half with some good defending from David Spiers and Will John just failed to add to the score. In the second period Enfield Rangers Black won 9 corner kicks and finally they were rewarded with a goal to snatch a point with a 1-1 draw. Seth Coetzee the East's keeper played an excellent game and in doing so was rewarded with man of the match. 

The Under 12's East also played a midweek match, and they were at home to Wingate & Finchley Blues in cold and wet conditions with visitors passing the ball well and David Spears made a vital clearance whilst at the other end saw Harry Murphy go very close indeed. Wingate managed to score three quick goals and then Ollie Cox pulled one back after he finished off beautifully following a great corner in from Leo Hooper-Walter to make it 3-1 at the break. In the second half Harry Murphy nearly made it 3-2 but he was denied by a fine save from the visitor’s keeper. Wingate scored two late goals to make the final score 5-1 to them, Seth Coetzee the East's custodian again had a fine game between the sticks whilst Jim Gleeson was the star player with a battling display in midfield.

The Under 12's North also played a double header in the White division of the WFL, and their opponents were Maccabi London Blue and ith first match saw the North lose 5-3 after a very close game with Olic Fan scoring two of the goals for the North whilst Zak Iman scored got the third goal. In the second match saw it turn out better for the North as they got a point with a hard fought 2-2 draw and scoring the goals were Jago Elliot Andrew and Joshua Cassidy. The man of the match awards went to Joshua Cassidy and Josh Hirst, respectively.

The Under 12's South did not have a match over the weekend, but they did have one during midweek which saw them win 4-1 at AC Finchley South with two goals from Tommy Gow plus two from Jake Roberts and the man of the match was awarded to Harry Miles.

The Under 9's North were at home HGS Academy Raiders and they drew 1-1 with Harry Talbot heading a fine goal in the second half which continues their good performances in recent matches.

HERTFORDSHIRE GIRLS PARTNERSHIP FOOTBALL LEAGUE.  

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.
