Academy Match Summaries for Saturday 27th September

AFC Rushden & Diamonds U12s       2          v          0          Solihull Moors F.C. U12s
Played at the Malcolm Arnold Academy, Northampton

R&D struggled to recapture the free flowing football of previous matches, but Solihull played well throughout and were unlucky not to get something from the game. William Jones scored first for R&D in the 2nd period with Jake Lilley adding the second in the final period with a rising header across goal. If it was for the heroics of Josh White in goal, Thomas Walton at the centre of defence and Mason Knights in the centre of the pitch, I’m certain Solihull would have scored from their numerous chances. Despite this, a hard earned 2-0 win for the Diamonds.

AFC Rushden & Diamonds U16s       0          v          2          Birmingham City F.C. U16s
Played at the Malcolm Arnold Academy, Northampton

Birmingham started the brighter, and despite having the majority of the 1st period, with Diamonds the majority of the 2nd, it was 0-0 at half-time. Diamonds defended well all game until a mix up led to Birmingham’s 1st goal in the 3rd period. They added a 2nd in the same period with a fantastic unstoppable free kick. Diamonds fought hard and carried on battling all game but lost out 2-0.
