Stratton U18s 4

Newbury U18s 2

STRATTON came from behind in a six-goal thriller.

Goals from Tom Arlott and Sam Robinson nosed Newbury ahead. However, Casey Fallows, Joe Speak, Jack Sheridan and Chalmers Phin, saw Stratton come out on top.

Elsewhere, the U9s made the short trip to Fairford for a development game.

Both teams started well, but Fin Stratford scored the opener after a sustained period of pressure.

Ez Allen did brilliantly to tip a strong shot around the post during his time in goal. In the third quarter, Idris Thomas-Jones finished spectacularly from a corner before Louis Kingsbury scored after being put through on goal by Allen.

In the last quarter, Louis and Fin combined cleverly at a free- kick for Fin to strike home his second goal of the game. Arthur Quli and Ez covered a huge amount of ground,while Idris was superb with both his tackling and passing.

Jaden Wiltshire and Jack Cummins played some great passes, while Archie Walker was rock solid at the back. Ben Seakins was nominated as player of the match due to his great interceptions.
