Community Teams Update 24th September

Community Teams Report – 22/23rd September

They talk it about it being a game of two halves well it was a weekend of two halves weather wise and also results wise that left some of our teams over the moon and others as sick as parrots.

Starting with the Under 7’s and Under 8’s on Saturday morning, all three teams were in action with the Dragons, Magic and Rovers playing against Great Doddington, Finedon Vics and Irchester Romans respectively.

I am pleased to report that such has been the success of the Under 8’s that they now have enough players join to field a second team. That will give us two teams in all age groups at mini soccer and 17 Community Youth Teams in all.

Onto Sunday morning and the Under 9 Tigers were without a game but their mates the Under 9 Leopards got that rarest of mini soccer results a 0-0 draw with Earls Barton.  Both the Under 10 Bisons and Rhinos were on the end of 0-5 reverses against Finedon Vics and Earls Barton. Also playing on Sunday mornings were our Under 11 Bees and Hornets.  The Bees ran out 7-0 winners with Josh Thomas-Young scoring four and Matthew Byrne three.  The Wasps were without a game.

Come Sunday afternoon and come the rain and the Under 15 Gladiators will have been glad they were without a game.There were two defeats among the teams that did play, the Under 15 warriors, who are in their first season went down 0-15 to Wellingborough Whitworth Eagles and the Under 16’s suffered their first reverse, a close 1-2 loss to Desborough Town, Rhys Day netting for the Scorpions.

Things were rather better at Under 13 where Bradley Fulker and Recce Watson knocked in goals that saw off Corby Kingswood, over at a rain sodden Kennedy’s the Cosmos went inter-stellar and knocked in eleven without reply, their first clean sheet for three years.  Harry Byrne (good day in the Byrne household) banged in four, Samuel Adams, Sam Fitzgerald and Munasche Chirimuuta bagged a brace each and Ben Guest completed the scoring.

The Under 14 Rebels were also in goal scoring mood  hitting seven without reply against weekly Rovers Scorpians, Ed Bates led with way with a hat-trick, Recce Pickering hit a double and strikes from Will Bates and Aiden Payne meant the Rebels kept up their winning start to the season.
