EASTERN JUNIOR ALLIANCE

The U18s were away at Hitchin in the league playing on the 3g at The Arena Stadium in Baldock.

Hitchin set up to frustrate the Saints from the outset with 11 men behind the ball. This afforded the saints with lots of possession but asking questions of how to break Hitchin down. It took 25 mins a slick move from the back-saw a cross into the box which Lankshear met hitting the bar and Banerjee on hand to tap home. Saints were awarded again shortly after another attack down the right found Wilkins whose fizzing cross found Lawrence who flicked the ball into a Hitchin defender in the 6-yard box 2-0. Hitchin had to change their tactics and pulled a goal back from their first dangerous attack when their striker wriggled free and fired a left foot shot into the net. Saints made it 3-1 just before half time Geller broke down the right and his cross came back off the woodwork with Lankshear on hand to slot home. 3-1 at the interval. 

As expected, Hitchin came out more adventurous however Saints continued to control the game. Hitchin pulled a goal back when Banerjee looking like had been fowled in his own box lost the ball and the Hitchin forward finished well leaving Saints keeper Galatis with no chance.

Saints weren't finished though and were rewarded by another fine move with Geller finding Ralfe to make it 4-2. With 2 mins to go Saints nearly made it 5, some nice interplay down the left found Hinkson who put in a great cross to the back post for Lawrence to head just wide. MOM Alex Lankshear. Full time 4-2 to Saint Albans.
