AFC Rushden & Diamonds U13s       2          v          4          Rushall Olympic F.C. U13s
Played at the Malcolm Arnold Academy, Northampton

The visitors started strongly and took a 2 goal lead after the first period. The second saw Diamonds claw one back through Ed Farrell and the third was keenly competitive, but again Farrell equalised just before half time. Rushall regained control in the final period scoring 2 further goals. A good game and great advert for the JPL.

W.B.A. Colts U14s                              6          v          0          AFC Rushden & Diamonds U14s
Played at the Tally Ho Sports Centre, Birmingham

Diamonds struck off brightly forcing WBA into mistakes under pressure. The hosts took the lead from a corner and added a second before the end of the 1st period. Diamonds had played some good football in this period and could feel a bit unlucky to be 2 down. WBA used their keeper well and moved the ball around to good effect, this helped them add 2 more goals before half-time. They continued in the same way during the second half adding a goal in each period for a deserved win.

AFC Rushden & Diamonds U15s       4          v          3          Birmingham F.C. U15s
Played at the Malcolm Arnold Academy, Northampton

Despite falling behind early, Diamonds battled hard to finish two-a-piece at the end of the 1st period. Birmingham’s 3rd goal came from a set piece free kick in the 3rd period. Diamonds regrouped and showed great determination to score 2 goals in the final period for an entertaining win where both teams played very well.

Played at Silhills F.C., Solihull

Honours were even at the end of the 1st period in evenly matched game but Diamonds just edged the first half going into the break 3-2 up. The second half was much the same with several chances for both sides. Burton managed to squeak a 3rd goal to earn a draw with some very good football played throughout.
