YOUTH FOOTBALL: Marson stars for FGR U11s
11:14am Saturday 12th October 2013 in Sport
ROVERS Under 11s won their first game of the season but it was not their best performance to date.
FC Chippenham U11s 2
Forest Green Rovers U11s 4
The impressive Sam Marson put Rovers 1-0 up with a fine strike and it wasn’t long before Ameer Courts added a quick brace to make it 3-0.
Rovers were composed at the back with Harry Purnell, Tamas Tomcsanyi, Billy Montague and Adam Harding starting to show a good understanding together.
The second half saw Rovers miss several chances and they were punished when Chippenham pulled a goal back. This was a wake-up call to Rovers and it was some fine individual play in the midfield from Dylan Miles which set Freddie Collings free to score his first goal for the club.
Chippenham kept battling and pulled a further goal back late on to make the final score 4-2 to Rovers.
MoM: Sam Marson.
South Cerney U10s 9
Shaw Cubs U10s 1
SOUTH CERNEY made it three wins out of three with a pleasing performance against Shaw Cubs.
Having been on the end of some similar scores last season it was great to see Cerney playing such assured football. They raced into a 5-1 half-time lead through goal machine Josh Allen (4) and Owen Humphrey.
The second half continued in a similar vein with further goals from Jamie Miles (2) and Miles Lonnergan.
Alice Cappell marshalled the defence throughout the game and protected Theo Cooper in goal. Rotating the players into less familiar positions saw Callum Mays play some intelligent football in the midfield and Benjy Dodds at right back looked to push forward whenever he could.
However, the goal of the game, and his first for South Cerney, came from Harry Ashcroft who made it 9-1. MoM: Josh Allen.
South Cerney U10s 3
Marlborough Youth U10s 2
A CLASSIC cup match in which Cerney went 1-0 down to a well taken goal.
However, this didn’t deter them and a wondrous strike from Josh Allen 30 yards out left the keeper with no chance.
The second half continued to see good football played by both sides and it was Theo Cooper who restored Cerney’s lead with a strike from inside the box.
Marlborough refused to give up and resolute defending from Callum Mays, Owen Humphey and Alice Cappell looked to have seen Cerney through. However, Harry Ashcroft in the Cerney goal was beaten with just minutes to go.
The home side dug deep in extra time and Miles Lonergan scored the winner after some fine interlinking play with Jamie Miles.
MoM: Theo Cooper.
