Community Teams Update

On Saturday the Under 7 Dragons and Magic enjoyed their games against Raunds Town and Irchester Romans Gladiators.  The Under 8 Rovers took on Wellingborough Town Tigers.

Moving onto Sunday and Under 9 and Under 10 it was derbies all the way with Higham Colts being the opponents.  Higham took the honours as the best AFC R&D result was a 2-2 draw for the Under 9 Tigers against Higham Ferrers Colts, Joshua and Rhys getting the goals.  For the Under Leopards Keanu’s strike was a consolation as Higham Colts hit six.

At Under 10 the Bisons & Rhinos went down 1-4 and 1-5 to Higham Ferrers Colts & Higham Colts respectively.  Michael and Luca the goalscorers.

Performance of the day came from the Under 11 Wasps who continued their good start to the season with a 5-0 win over Raunds, Diarra and Dan got a brace each with Cameron completing the scoring.

The Under 11 Bees were on a week off and the Under 11 Hornets were the victims of a waterlogged pitch.

Also losing their games to the weather were the Under Cosmos and the Under 14 Rebels.

The Under 13 Galaxy travelled to F.C. Aztec in Rothwell and came away with a hard earned victory, James’ goal being the clincher.

At Under 15 the Warriors were on a week off and the Gladiators probably wished they had of been, instead getting a 8-0 beating from Great Doddington.

Completing the matches were the Under 16 Scorpions who narrowly lost to Corby S&L 2-3, Rhys Day getting both goals for AFC R&D.
