MATCH REPORTS WEEK ENDING 09/09/01

The under nines Panthers got off to another good start against Huncoat Utd with an early goal from Alex Mack, his third goal in two games!  A very competitive game, both sides had good chances to score in the first half which finished 1-0 to Panthers. The second half again very competitive but the Panthers let it slip right at the end of the game to allow Huncoat a well earned draw. Result 1-1. Another good all round team performance.

Despite loosing two nil to a very strong Accoutre side the under nines Tigers put up a brave fight with another solid team performance. They were under siege for long periods of the game but keeper Joe Birtwell pulled off some excellent saves to keep the Tigers in it and they were one down at half time. Second half sub Jordan Dunn livened up for the Tigers but they went two down midway into the second half. A last minute penalty miss by the Tigers could have reduced the arrears, but the keeper saved and Accoutre got the win they deserved. ( Author Dave Bower )

In sharp contrast to the previous week, when the U11's needed to come from behind four times before overcoming Readstone 7 - 4, on Saturday they beat Clitheroe Wolves Rangers 3 - 0 at the Memorial Park in a solid team display, with goals from Referee's Man of the Match Danny Goggins (2) and Ben Lysons.

The under 14s put last week's narrow defeat behind them with a hard fought victory over Ossy Juniors at Foxhill. Despite trailing by 3-2 midway through the second half, Rovers dug deep to run out winners by 5 goals to 3. Not surprisingly, Referee's MOTM was Phil Eatough who captialised on good team work to bag his second four goal tally of the season. ( Author Mark Pickup )

After a brief spell away, the U18s returned HOME to Memorial Park. After a well fought game (and I mean well fought) the U18s ran out easy 7 - 1 winners over Blackburn Academy. A hat trick from Man of the match Matt Mercer, 2 goals from last years top goal scorer, Usman Amhed, 1 from Danny Smith and a rare goal from David Kemp. (Author Chris Rushton)
