Stratton Youth U18s 2
Fairford U18s 3

THE STRATTON U18s conceded a late goal to lose 3-2 after an even encounter with Fairford. Fairford took the lead midway through the first half and hit the post soon after but Tom Pudifoot hit a dipping shot to equalise just before half-time.

Pudifoot gave Stratton the lead with another powerful strike early in the second half and Jack Sheridan almost extended the advantage when he hit the crossbar.

However, Fairford became more direct using their superior height to force errors in the Stratton defence and it paid dividends as they scrambled an equaliser followed by a similar late winner.

STRATTON U16s travelled all the way to Castle Coombe for a 9.30am kick-off, only for the game to be called off due to a waterlogged pitch. Apologies to all those that travelled.

Stratton Youth U15s 4
Swindon Supermarine U15s 10

SWINDON Supermarine started the game with great urgency and bossed the first 20 minutes scoring four goals before Stratton could get any foothold in the match.

Credit to Stratton who fought back, with Harvey McCullie grabbing two goals, the second of which was an excellent curler into the top corner. McCullie's assists came from Joe Kingsley Anaisie and Thomas Pottinger. The first half finished 2-5.

The second period continued with Stratton making more of a game of it. A perfect out-swinging corner from Josh Littler-Jennings was headed home by Max McDonald.

However, the powerful Supermarine side proved too strong and ran in another five goals, most with eye-catching finishes.

McCullie did complete his hat-trick after a through ball from Jake Halford.

There was also a fine penalty save from Stratton's George Tanner.

MoM: Harvey McCullie.

Stratton Youth U12s 2
Castle Coombe U12s 3

STRATTON U10s fought hard in their cup game at home against Forest Green this week. Despite an early lead they were unable to keep the momentum needed to get a result.

A fantastic game from Jack Miller earned him the MoM and congratulations to Caleb Kavanagh for an amazing goal.

For the second consecutive week the Stratton U9s had a cup match away from home. They started very well with an early goal from a stunning volley by Fin Stratford. Fin quickly added two more and the U9s looked like they were heading for a straightforward victory.

However, they let the opposition back into the game by conceding twice.

An unfortunate own goal by Greenmeadow seemed to spark the U9s back into life and Jack Cummins finished sharply after great link-up play with Sam Potter and Louis Kingsbury.

Jaden Wiltshire was unlucky not to score before Louis netted twice.

MoM: Sam Potter.

THE Stratton U8s enjoyed a tightly-fought home game against Stratton Youth Rhinos. The MoM was Leo Scott for an outstanding performance and Frank Ward scored their only goal.
