St Albans City Youth FC - Match Reports w/e 17th March 2019

 

EASTERN JUNIOR ALLIANCE

EASTERN JUNIOR ALLIANCE PRESIDENTS CUP QUARTER-FINAL.

ST ALBANS CITY 16's EJA    3 (Bradley Young 3)    BILLERICAY TOWN 16's EJA   2 (Archie Champion, Josh Banks)

Well this match had everything as the St Albans City 16 EJA came back from being two goals down at home to go on and win  3-2 with Bradley Young scoring a great hat-trick, a back-pass which gifted Billericay their second goal to make it 2-0, a missed penalty by the Saints which would have made it 4-2 and more.

Back to the match proper a long range shot from Archie CHAMPION saw the ball swerve in the strong wind which deceived Billy Thomson the Saints keeper as the ball flew past him to make it 1-0 and then minutes later a back pass from Kyle Rahoo saw the ball go past Thomson as he had come off his line and despite the efforts Harry ''Chippy'' Brady to clear in rushed Josh BANKS to score from close range and make it 2-0. 

The Saints tried to hit back and a dangerous free kick from Joe Vance was punched clear by Luis Shamshoum whilst another free kick by Vance was saved by Shamshoum lox down to his left.

Bradley Young then won a corner kick which was curled into box by Joe Vance whereupon BRADLEY YOUNG rose up to head the ball into the bottom right corner to make it 2-1 at the break.

Jack (Mars Bar) McShane then setup Ben Weyman but his shot was deflected just wide and the McShane had a cracking header pushed around the post by a good stop from Shamshoum whilst moments later the scoreline became 2-2. Jack McShane then played a good ball to BRADLEY YOUNG inside the box whereupon he held off two defenders before firing the ball low into the bottom corner despite Luis Shamshoum getting his fingertips to the ball. Jack McShane did find the back of the net from close range after Bradley Young had squared the ball across, but the flag was raised for offside for Young. 

Well a third goal did come when that expert of free kicks and corner kicks saw Joe Vance hit a free kick into the box for BRADLEY YOUNG once again to meet the ball with his head and send a powerful header into the far left bottom corner to complete his hat-trick and the winning goal for the Saints to win 3-2. They should have made it 4-2 when they won a penalty when Ben Weyman was brought down in the box, but his spot kick went wide of the far post with the Billericay keeper rooted to his line, still 3-2 will do. Now for the semi-finals.

The 14 EJA played Biggleswade Town 14 EJA at home and after playing some lovely attractive football they gradually went on to win 4-1 without really getting into top gear. Scoring the goals were JOSEPH BEARDON with two penalties plus one apiece from PEREZ WATERBERG and MAX MACHEN saw the young Saints enjoy this comfortable victory in a match they completely dominated.

 

WEST HERTS YOUTH LEAGUE 

In the White Division of the WHYL sees the 18 North sit at the top of the table with yet another good win as they beat Chorleywood Lightning 3-1 at home with goals from Tom Hedger, Jack Hughes and Henry Piekarczyk. They have now won 14 out of the 16 league matches and have scored 67 goals and conceded 27 with a goal difference of plus 40 and they now have 43 points which means they are 12 points clear of second place Wheathampstead Wanderers Makos.  Leading goalscorer is George Piekarczyk on 21 and he is followed by his brother Henry who has scored 11 goals.

At home to Watford Youth Sports were the 18 West and after a close match saw them eventually lose 2-1 with Ousama Moutiq scoring the West goal.

In division 2 of the WHYL saw the 16 Orient go down 4-1 at home to EB Lions with Joshua Haworth scoring the consolation goal for the Orient.

Away to Evergreen Youth were the 15 Boreal and giving the Boreal the three points was a super finish from Tom Randall for them to win 1-0 whilst Jason Murphy picked up the man of the match trophy.

The 14 South were at home to Harpenden Colts Lightning and despite the Saints scoring two good goals through Mackenzie Gibson and Oliver Wynne saw them eventually lose 4-2 to two late second half goals from the visitors.

Man, of the match Finn Geoghegan struck two excellent goals for the 14 West in there away game at Kings Langley Blue but the hosts hit seven to go on and win the game 7-2.

The 13 Victoria scored three good goals away to Tring Tornadoes Titans and kept a clean sheet as they went on to win 3-0. For the first saw Zak Davies hit a cracking free kick which the keeper couldn't hold onto and Ashton Latter was the quickest to react and he scored from close range. Goal number two came about after good play down the right between Ollie Mullen, Archie Hobbs and Gabriel Urhoma for Freddie Roe to lift the ball over defenders for Alex Strazza to calmly slot the ball past the keeper as he came of his line. Another nice team move ended with Ashton Latter scoring again after his first shot was saved but he quickly reacted again, and the keeper could do nothing about his second stinging shot. The man of the match was Martin Flore who was asked to play in 4 different positions and did not put a foot wrong in any of them and Benjy Stone was a very close second to the title as he had to deal with Tring's best player and most of their attacks down the left flank and he did it brilliantly. The hail stones at the end was a nice touch to a very satisfying afternoon for the 13 Victoria. Phew that's all for now from the VICS.

The 12 South had a superb home win over Berkhamsted Raiders Blue with the South hitting the crossbar and the post before they finally opened the scoring with a goal from Sam Estell and following some great football from the Saints, they doubled their lead with a goal from Owen Weaver. The man of the match went to defender Ryan Kennedy.

The 12 Arrows played a double header against Hemel Aces Lions and they won the first game 3-0 with goals from Cathal Gleeson, Finlay Murphy and Alfie Wollington. In the second match they lost 2-1 with Finlay Murphy scoring yet another goal whilst the man of the match went Ollie Denyer in the first game whilst Liam Powell picked up the award in the second match.

Also playing a double header was the 12 Dragons and they had mixed fortunes as well when they won the first game 2-1 against Bovingdon Thunder but lost the second match 3-0. Scoring in the first match was Steven Jacobs with two good goals whilst Joe McLoughlin was named man of the match for both games.

Away to Herons saw the 12 West win 4-0 with goals from Charlie Rose 2, Tommy (that's my boy) Morgan plus one from Kye Stevens.

The 12 12 Central were in good form as they beat Croxley Green Emerald 4-1 away with Tyler Gullin-Hall scoring two goals whilst both Dean Bladon and Stephen Tchoudi got one apiece. The man of the match for Central went Oliver Chisholm.

EASTERN JUNIOR ALLIANCE

The St Albans City 16's E.J.A. were at home to Ware 16's E.J.A. in the league and it proved to be a very exciting match in that the young Saints snatched a late winner to win the game 2-1. The match was played in a very strong wind and with the visitors kicking up hill with the wind in their favour saw their passes forward running away in the wind. The Saints took the lead in the first half when BRADLEY YOUNG latched onto a back pass which saw him race around the keeper and calmly tuck the away into the empty net. They nearly made it 2-0 but Taro Chitepo well struck free kick was tipped around the post by a good save from Cameron Raghip.

In the second half the young Saints seemed to cope with the strong wind and created numerous chances which saw Jack McShane have a close range shot pushed around the post(no more Mars Bars for him) and then Cameron Raghip pulled off another fine save when Harry 'Chippy 'Brady hit a high ball into the box which took a wicked bounce and the Ware keeper just managed to push the ball over the crossbar. 

McShane then had a header saved whilst a shot on the turn from Young from on the edge of the box flew just wide of the far post and then Jack McShane had the best chance to make it 2-0 when the mighty Joe Vance from out on the right whips over a great ball across the box and McShane unmarked at the back post saw him blaze the ball over when it would have been easier for him to score. Next up saw Tyler Parritt cracking strike saved at the second attempt by Cameron Raghip and then from out of nowhere saw Ware win a penalty which Tommy SHEPHERD duly put away to make it 1-1 with only a few minutes to go.

They game was not over as the Saints hit back when Tyler Parritt hit a lovely through ball straight down the middle and with a defender and a attacker both chasing for the ball it was BRADLEY YOUNG who got that vital touch as he hit the ball past the Ware keeper from inside the box and into the back of the net for a great finish whereupon he was instantly buried under a pile of his team mates bodies to celebrate an excellent 2-1 win.

The 14 's E.J.A. were at home Braintree 14's E.J.A. and they played some terrific football in very difficult conditions, but they turned a superb display and were just unplayable and should have had more goals in their 7-0 win.

The 13 Victoria were fantastic all over the pitch and Evergreen were lucky to have only lost by two goals as it could have been four or five. Victoria dominated the first half and Ashton Latter who had been feeling unwell overnight but looked very sharp once he was on the pitch and he broke clear following a through ball whereupon he promptly smashed the ball into the top right corner from 25 yards to give Victoria a 1-0 lead. The young Saints continued to play with lots of confidence and tempo and Ashton Latter picked up his second goal just before half time which he richly deserved.

St Albans City Youth FC - Match Reports w/e 24th February 2019

The FA Peoples Cup

The City Youth Under 16 Inclusive team took part in the FA People's Cup this week at the Herts FA County Ground.  The Saints were up against tough competition in the form of Championship side Norwich FC’s Inclusive team and Bedwell Rangers FC Inclusive.  Each team played each other twice.  St Albans came 3rd, but they all played remarkably well, staying focussed and never giving up. Goalkeeper, Sid Walker made a string of fantastic saves and despite not winning, they held their heads up high and showed great sportsmanship.   This is the first time the Inclusive U16's have entered the FA Peoples Cup and it was a great experience for all involved.  It also made the week for many of the players as they all really enjoyed it despite not coming back with a trophy.

WATFORD FRIENDLY LEAGUE

In the Spring Cup Group C saw the 18 South lose 3-0 away to Bushey Rangers and I am sorry I have no more info than that.

Meanwhile the 18 Central won 5-0 away to Brady Maccabi Black in a Spring Plate Group D match with Jack Latter scoring two goals whilst the following Harry Peter, Sam Lailey and man of the match Nick Curtis all scored one apiece. 

In the Red Division of the W.F.L. saw the 16 South earn a 1-1 draw at home to Northwood Black with man of the match Luca De Olivia scoring a dramatic equaliser late on.

The 15 North who were at home to Brady Maccabi Red in Group D of the Spring Shield and the North quickly found themselves 1-0 down after only two minutes with their defence clearly having forgotten their role in the game due to the half term break. The North then woke up and scored two goals to take a 2-1 lead with Tyler Cadiou-McCarty scoring the first goal and then man of the match Daniel Curran hit the second when his fantastic curling corner kick flew straight into the far corner of the net. He had been close on a few other corner kicks during the game, so it was nice to see one go in but then the North switched off for some reason as they thought they had done enough, and Brady Maccabi Red struck back with two goals to go on and win 3-2. 

Away in the Spring Cup to Maccabi London Lions Blue in a Group D match saw the 14 East lose 5-0 with Sam Boca-Mapp being named man of the match after his hard work throughout the whole of the game.

The 13 South lost 3-1 to Omonia Youth Gold away in a Blue division league game but once again I have no more info than that!

In the Challenge Cup saw the 12 Orient make their way through to the quarter-finals with a 3-1 away win at Belstone FC. The Orient were trailing 1-0 early on the match but they fought back to win the game with goals from Alex Hails, Dima Gusev and Ollie Jay following a terrific second half performance and the goals they scored were all well taken. The man of the match was Ed Purple who was very instrumental for the team's fightback.

The 12 Spartans lost 9-0 to Edmonton Rangers Dragons at and that is all I know except that two of the Dragon players scored a hat-trick each.

At home to Colney Heath Eagles saw the 12 Vikings drew 3-3 in a WFL Purple league game and scoring goals for those Vikings were Christan Harvey, Sean Magee and Max Winders whilst Addison Meech was named man of the match.  For the Eagles saw Luca Lepley, Thomas Maher and Tom Paveley find the back of the net for them in an exciting entertaining game.
