Stratton Youth FC round-up
Stratton U18s 2 FC Chippenham 3

THE Stratton Youth U18s lost to a late goal against a tenacious Chippenham side.

They found themselves 2-0 down having conceded goals either side of half-time, but Sam Brewster pressurised the Chippenham defence and nicked the ball back to fire home.

Soon after Seb Weatherhead-Prosser showed his knack for scoring wonder goals with a long range strike on his return to the club.

However, with 10 minutes remaining a slip in the home defence gave a visiting striker the opportunity to claim all three points.

MoM: Tom Chisholm.

Ferndale U16s 2 Stratton U16s 1

A GOOD all round team performance left the U16s' management team scratching their heads for a MoM, and bemused as to how they didn't get anything from the game.

Tiree Philipson opened his team's account, but they just couldn't find an equaliser.

Cricklade U15s 2 Stratton U15s 9

APPLYING a three-at-the-back formation, Stratton U15s settled into the game well, scoring on eight minutes through Barney Kimber.

James Wickett added the second with Kimber doubling his goal tally before half-time to make it 0-3.

Cricklade started the second half positively, reducing the lead with an excellent curling effort from just inside the box.

Stratton continued to assert, however, creating chances and Wickett netted his second début goal.

Again Cricklade came back with another quality finish, volleying first time into Stratton's net. At 2-4 game it was on!

This, however, encouraged Stratton to fight back and they unlocked Cricklade's defence in a crazy spell of goals.

Charlie Love scored twice in eight minutes, and Sonny Williamson got his first Stratton goal.

Josh Littler-Jennings added a deserved strike with 10 minutes remaining and there was still time for number nine, a début goal for Joe Kinsley-Anaise, who lashed in a left-foot drive.

Stratton can be pleased with an outstanding team effort – and the bonus of nine goals.

MoM: Sonny Williamson.

Lydiard U12s 5 Stratton U12s 0

STRATTON ran into a very good Lydiard side to start their season with a cup game.

The match was goalless until late in the first half, but a flurry of goals at the beginning of the second half was enough for the home side to progress to the next round.

The mini section will start their season this weekend, with all teams away from home.
