St Albans City Youth FC Under 11 Lions v Wheathampstead Mako Sharks

A close match today with the U11 Lions giving the Mako Sharks a real test. The Lions conceded early on but the boys responded positively and the Lions equaliser in the 2nd quarter was great to watch - a well worked corner between Finley Maguire and Daniel Davenport with Levi Chiappe finishing off neatly in the box. The Lions were opened up again in the 3rd quarter and the 2nd goal for the Makos. No less than 3 players were awarded joint Players of the Match for their performances in centre defence and midfield - Eddie Beard, Finley Maguire and Matthew Denning.

 

St Albans City Youth FC Under 11 South v Welwyn Pegasus Skys

St Albans City U11 South enjoyed the Spring sunshine and put on a glowing performance against Welwyn Pegasus Skys.
In the first quarter the quick passing was very impressive and led to goals from Toby Thompson and Alex Gow. Toby Thompson scored again from the penalty spot and Toby Sumner smashed home the fourth goal.
The South worked hard throughout the game, epitomised by our Player of the Match Hugo Perez Landrove who ran, passed and tackled with his usual passion and commitment.

St Albans City Youth FC Under 9 East v Bengeo Tigers Bengals

East Under 9 Boys faced Bengeo Tigers Bengals in the sunshine at Highfield Park in a tense cup semi final. An end to end game saw both teams trade goals in the opening quarters with Harry Brewer showing ice cold finishing with two expertly taken goals on the counter attack. Josh Smith and Daniel Kennedy caused problems on both flanks with endless energy, each grabbing a goal after neat exchanges of passes. Louis Burt was tireless in midfield and grabbed a fifth with a fine strike. In defence, Senanu Ameadah, Bertie Henson and Kian Guiggonet were resolute and extremely well organised by the unflappable Jake Davenport. Thomas H was a constant menace upfront but the man of the match was Archie Hunter with a composed display in defence which saw him often make crucial interceptions and then launch devastating through balls to the forwards.

St Albans City Youth FC - Match Reports w/e 20th March 2022

Whetstone U14 Tigers v  St Albans City Youth FC Under 14 Victoria

Back to action in WFL U14 Blue Division this afternoon for U14 Victoria.
Up against it with only 10 players available we travelled to top of the league (100% record) Whetstone U14 Tigers, contesting the game throughout but ultimately losing 0-4 with a couple of late goals making the result more emphatic than the game had been. MOTM was Thomas Hope with an all action performance in midfield.

St Albans City Youth FC Under 13 East v Maccabi U13 Blues (League Game)

Result 7-0 WIN for SACY U13 East

Squad: Callum Brandon, David Spears, Gabriel Odunlami, Harry Murphy, Jim Gleeson, Leo Hooper-Walter, Matthew Ellis, Nikhil Jagota, Oliver Cox, Ronan Brandon, Seth Coetzee

After a recent dip in results, the East team had put in some intensive training and showed off their new skills with a very impressive performance against their old adversaries; Maccabi, who they had not previously been able to beat.

Leo Hooper-Walter took the game by storm and scored three skilful goals in the 2nd, 5th and 13th minute giving the East team a comfortable advantage to start.

Harry Murphy accepted a new position in defensive midfield and found fresh motivation to not only defend well but to fight to get the ball up to his usual scoring partner; Leo.

David Spears delivered spot on defending with intimidating moves and marking.

Nikhil Jagota, Matthew Ellis, Ronan Brandon and Callum Brandon were, as usual, a solid defending wall ensuring that Maccabi had very little chance to take a shot at goal.

Gabriel Odunlami and Oli Cox were very focused in assisting Leo Hooper-Walter to enable him to score his fourth goal just before half-time.

After half-time, Maccabi had reshaped in order to try and stop Leo, but to no avail, as he scored three more goals with great timing and precision.

Jim Gleeson as captain supported the team with his clear directions and kept the team in their positions.

Seth Coetzee in his usual calm and collected manner gracefully stopped the few attempts that Maccabi made at goal.

The East team were clearly working cohesively in this match and due to their collective commitment in confidently getting the ball to Leo Hooper-Walter, he was able to do what he does best; scoring all of the seven goals for a spectacular win for the East team.

Player of the Match was jointly awarded to Harry Murphy and Leo Hooper-Walter. To Harry for accepting a change of position and stepping up to improve his game. To Leo for the amazing goal scoring.

St Albans City Youth FC Under 11 Lions v Wodson Park Under 11 United

A very exciting, see-saw match today with the U11 Lions boys showing a lot of character to come back from an early goal conceded against Wodson Park U11 Utd.  The Lions came back into the match strongly with goals from Benji Mellors, Stan Seymour and an own goal in the 2nd quarter forced by Tristan Mistry. Wodson came back into the match strongly again with 2 goals in the 3rd quarter but the Lions gathered themselves and found the net twice more in the 4th quarter through Benji Mellors and Tristan Mistry. At full time we had no less than 3 players sharing Player of the Match - Benji Mellors, Tristan Mistry and Finley Maguire for two assists and a great performance in centre midfield.

St Albans City Youth FC Under 11 South v Wheathampstead Mako Sharks

St Albans City U11 South put in a wonderful performance against Wheathampstead Mako Sharks at Highfield. The South made a strong start and Alfie Sangster’s wonderful through ball was finished with confidence by Toby Thompson for the first goal. Evan Love then intercepted a goal kick and chipped the keeper from outside the box before slotting home again with a first time strike from a great throw-in from Alex Gow. Alfie Sangster put away the final goal in a tight and exciting match.

Our Player of the Match was Toby Sumner, who had a great game putting in strong tackles and playing good balls forward. Toby showed tremendous courage and resilience in playing today. The team would like to dedicate this performance to Toby’s dad, Ed Sumner, who passed away last week.

Welwyn Pegasus v St Albans City Youth FC Under 9 East

St Albans City East Under 9 Boys played Welwyn Pegasus in the sunshine at Monk's Walk. It was an end-to-end game with two quite different halves. Early dominance brought memorable long range goals from Joshua Smith and Danny Kennedy and a cheeky finish from Thomas H. The team defended resolutely throughout with gritty performances from Bertie Henson, Archie Hunter and Senanu Ameadah all marshalled by the superb goalkeeper, Jake Davenport. Harry Brewer lit up the second half with his mazy runs and through balls and Thomas H was a giant both upfront and in defence. Kian Guigonnet was man of the match with wholehearted contribution in goal, defence and central midfield.

St Albans City Youth FC - Match Reports w/e 6th March 2022

St Albans City Youth Under 11 South  v  Watton Youth Dragons

With Highfield Park waterlogged after recent storms St Albans City U11 South were kindly hosted by Watton Youth Dragons. On a muddy but playable pitch both teams battled hard and played some good football in a friendly but competitive match.

Evan Love opened the scoring when he was put through with a fine ball from Elijah Bailey. Evan then went down the wing and crossed for Toby Thomson to score. Alfie Sangster secured two great goals in the second half, including a wonderful chip over the keeper and two defenders.

It was great team performance. Zac Johnson was superb in goal, Hugo Landrove Perez worked tirelessly in midfield, the defence was solid with Toby Sumner having a great game but Player of the Match went to Elijah Bailey for a wonderful performance at the heart of the midfield, tackling, passing, great positional play and creating chances. Well played the South
.

St Albans City Youth FC Under 11 Lions  v  Wheathampstead Tigers

A very good performance from the Lions for most of today but a 5 minute spell of lost concentration & composure cost the boys dearly.  The score was goalless after the first half and the Lions were getting better attacking possession before conceding two goals in quick succession in the 3rd quarter.  Eddie Beard got the Lions back into the match with a stunning 25 yard volley but there were to be no more goals. A captain’s performance earned Eddie joint Player of the Match alongside Mateo Sacota, who put in an eye catching, assured performance at left back and centre midfield.

St Albans City Youth FC Under 9 East  v  Wheathampstead Sharks

SACY East Under 9 Boys battled through a tough game away at Wheathampstead Sharks. The early stages were tight with Jake Davenport impressing with some great saves. The team had some great passing moves with Bertie Henson, Archie Hunter, Senanu Ameadah and Harry Brewer moving the ball around well. Thomas H made some great runs down the middle with Louis Burt and Danny Kennedy always offering in support. Captain Kian Guigonnet directed his team well and finally the goals came from Joshua Smith and Jake Davenport. Harry Brewer was man of the match with an all-round competitive performance plus some great skills.

St Albans City Youth FC - Match Reports w/e 13th March 2022

WFL U13 Spring Cup Group A

St Albans City Youth FC Under 13 West 5 v 0 Barnet Rams

With five goals from five different goal-scorers, West were on form against division rivals Barnet Rams in the U13 Spring Cup.  

Barnet struggled with an on-form U13 West team that had just 11 fit players and Harvey M nursing an arm injury as the sole sub, who was bravely called into action when his brother Lennon had to go off.  

Player of the match, Matthew found the net as did Noah, Rowan, Eddie and Harry who was playing only his second game for the team and found the net again.  

With West being knocked out of the League & Challenge cups, this is their last remaining competition of the season alongside the league and despite losing points from cancelled games earlier in the year, now have their sights set on the top spot of their group.  Next up, group leaders Berkhamsted.  Already looking forward to it.

St Albans City Youth Under 11 Lions v  Wheathampstead Tigers make it to the Final

A superb cup match today and really magnificent performance from the U11 Lions boys to beat Wheathampstead U11  Tigers and make their way into the HDL Alder David Wray Cup Final. The boys started really well with Tristan Mistry making some great runs in attack but clinical finishing in the box from Dylan Jennings resulted in two early goals for the Lions and a dream start. Benji Mellors came off the bench in the 2nd quarter and wasn’t to be outdone, blasting a powerful shot in from a narrow angle that almost burst the side netting. At 3-0 up the game wasn’t over with the Lions playing against a swirling wind in the 2nd half - two goals for the Tigers brought them right back into it and the spectators were all set for a tense final quarter. The Lions steadied themselves and battled magnificently but it took two superb saves from Oscar Taylor to keep the Lions ahead. There were to be no more goals and the Lions confirmed their place in the final to be played at the Herts FA County ground at Letchworth in May. So many great performances but Dylan Jennings   and Benji Mellors took joint Players of the Match for some great goals today.

St Albans City Youth Under 9 Wildcats played Watton Youth

St Albans City Youth FC - Match Reports w/e 27th February 2022

Whetstone U13 Tigers vs St Albans City Youth FC Under 13 East (Spring Cup Game)

Result 8-0 Loss for SACY U13 East

Squad:  

Callum Brandon

David Spears

Harry Murphy

Jim Gleeson

Leo Hooper-Walter

Matthew Ellis

Nikhil Jagota

Oliver Cox

Ronan Brandon

Seth Coetzee

Zack Magnus

The East team fought hard against the confident and skilful Whetstone Tigers. Harry Murphy, Leo Hooper-Walter and David Spears all made a great effort to score throughout the game but just couldn’t navigate their way around the opponent’s defence or suffered an unfortunate finish, despite a good run to the goal.

At half-time the East team were trailing 4-0 and after making some amazing saves Seth Coetzee was injured and was replaced by Leo Hooper-Walter in the second half, leaving the team with only ten players.

The East team fought even harder in the second half and created more chances to score but to no avail. A few more goals slipped past Leo Hooper-Walter until he found his rhythm, then he made some great saves.  

Nikhil Jagota made some crucial clearances in defence, Zack Magnus, Jim Gleeson, Ronan Brandon and Callum Brandon all performed skilfully as individuals but the team just couldn’t find the connection, they needed with each other. The final score was 8-0 to Whetstone.

A special mention to Oliver Cox who played to his normal high standard throughout, despite feeling unwell.

Player of the Match was Matthew Ellis who demonstrated focused and determined work in defence and midfield.

 

St Albans City Youth FC Under 11 South v FC Comets Hitchin

St Albans City U11 South played FC Comets Hitchin in an exciting match at Highfield. Early pressure from the South led to Toby Russ scoring a well taken goal on the turn. The game went back and forth with opportunities for both sides, and the South deserved their second goal when Alex Gow drove home from the edge of the penalty box.


The South had to defend well and Zac Johnson followed up his clean sheet against St Albans U11 Lions last week with a Player of the Match performance in goal. A good team performance.

The team were back out on Sunday to play the excellent St Albans U10 North. Both teams played some wonderful football in a close, entertaining match. South scored some great goals with Alex Gow blasting in from outside the box, Elijah Bailey striking a great penalty and then curling in a tempting cross for Evan Love to finish with a superb header. There were also goals for guest players Joe Neal (Tigers), a great finish, and Josh Rowe (Titans), a glancing header in to the bottom corner. Mateo Sacoto (Lions) was superb at the back and was our joint player of the match with Elijah Bailey.

Bengeo Tigers v St Albans City Youth FC Under 9 East

St Albans City East Under 9s returned after the half-term break to a titanic battle against Bengeo Tigers in the sunshine at the Sele School. Both defences were well marshalled and proved tough to break down. Daniel Kennedy was alert in goal, making some good saves the few times the Tigers broke through. Good first time passing in midfield from Jake Davenport, Archie Hunter and Senanu Ameadah created chances and Archie took his goal calmly when it came. The second half saw the introduction of Joshua Smith and Harry Brewer upfront and both created great chances. Louis Burt was also unlucky with a fine run and shot. The game was finally settled by a great run and finish from Bertie Henson. Men of the match were Thomas H and Kian Guigonnet for a fantastic performance as a defensive unit.
