Well, one thing you can predict is that’s youth football is not predictable, and so this weekend turned out to be.
On Saturday the Under 7 Dragons & Magic and the Under 8 Rovers played at Irchester and enjoyed matches against Irchester Romans, Great Doddington & Vicarage Farm respectively.
Scores are not recorded at these age groups.
Onto Sunday and the Under 9 Leopards recorded a fine 5-1 win over Grammarians Youth, Keanu Kaylan and Richard Spring getting two each with Callum Moffat making it a nap hand. Also at Under 9 the Tigers got that rare result 0-0 against Great Doddington, there was a 0-0 last week so perhaps it’s not so rare?
At Under 10’s the Bisons scored through Malise Dinsey and Michael Childs, their opponents, Grammarians Youth got 6. The Rhino’s scored one more; Charlie Broughton, Lica Diver and Logan Fisher getting the goals, Finedon Vics managed 7 at the other end.
The Under 11 Bees got a 2-2 draw against F.C. Aztec Braves, Brett Norton and Morgan Dinsey, making it a Dinsey double. The Hornets were not so lucky going down 2-0 at Higham Colts. The Wasps had a week off.
On to Under 13 and the Cosmos went to Corby Kingswood and got a bit of a battering, going down 12-2, Cameron Millard and Sam Adams scored the best two goals of the match, honest. A Devon Cottis double was not enough to get the Galaxy any points, Grange United running out winners 3-2.
The Under 14 Rebels has a week off.
At Under 15’s there were goals a-plenty. The Gladiators hit one through Josh Green, Burton Park Wanderers managed five. The Warriors hit four through Matthew Brookes, Danny Gallagher, Conor O’Brien and Jake Sevier, Grammarians though managed two for every one of ours.
At Under 16 another brace, this time from David Brazier, wasn’t enough as S&L Youth progressed in the County Cup.
All in all not a great week results wise but with sixty seven, yes sixty seven, goals across eleven Sunday games, it certainly wasn’t boring.
