Cambridgeshire & District Colts League U13A Division – 25 April 18

After a thrilling Cup final against Bluntisham at the weekend, we were back to business in the league to try and keep winning the title a possibility. 

The first half came alive as soon as Daniel Legg swept a twenty yard shot in to the goal. It seemed to wake up Bluntisham. If it wasn’t for Luis in goal they would have been on equal terms straight away.

We let them back in with a couple of minutes to go to half time and we where at 1-1. 

It seemed difficult to get motivated so we swapped some players and freshened up the team. This for once did us no favours and Bluntisham got in behind again for their second. This brought us back to life and we seemed to move the ball better. A great through ball by Luke Dunn and Damien Boakye smashed it past the keeper. Then in a cruel turn of events from a corner, Billy headed the ball past our own keeper. It then clicked. We went straight down their end and Alfie helped himself to a goal and we running hot. The next goal by Damien was spectacular from out side the box. He hit it sweetly with his left foot in to the top right corner.

Ben Hunter the floated the ball out to the right and Luke Dunn then crossed the ball to be parried by the keeper, then Harry stole it in the box and put the ball in the net.

The next goal was incredible. The Bluntisham defence cleared the ball to the half way line and Billy just smashed the ball back. It looped over everyone and dropped in the goal. We were a little lacking in enthusiasm tonight, but we played our way back into a game when it looked like going all horribly wrong.

Our goalkeeper had a great game and made eight or nine great saves. He showed us all again today what an incredible talent he is.

A very satisfying result today. As a team we had to work hard for the result. All the best to Bluntisham for the rest of the season .

St Ives Town 5 Panthers 0

Cambridgeshire & District Colts League U13A Division – 15 April 18

After two weeks off for Easter, we really needed to get up and going today against a Panthers side that have been getting results of late. In the first fifteen minutes we put them under pressure and some really good chances passed us by from great goalkeeping and poor finishing. However, we stuck at it and kept switching the ball. Daniel Legg moved down the left and floated the ball across the box to see Luke Annis smash the ball on the half volley at the keeper who parried it back to him and he smashed the ball in the back of the net. That seemed to settle us down. We had a few more chances, however the Panthers had some as well and our Goalkeeper Luis made two world class saves at point blank range. With five minutes left before half time Alfie Baker smashed the ball into the bottom left hand corner to give us the 2 goal advantage we really deserved for all the work we had put in. 

In the second half with a couple of changes and different tactics we really went out to take the Panthers to task. We started very brightly, began to move the ball quicker and once again Alfie Baker clipped the ball from 20 yards out and the ball was in the back of the net. Within 5 minutes Carlo Giove got in behind and slotted the ball past the keeper. Just make the day complete, his brother Gino courtesy of a cross from Luke Dunn put the ball in the bottom left hand corner to seal a 5-0 victory. It was a great performance from the lads today.
