MATCH REPORTS -from Manager Gary Jeffrey
Staplehurst 1 – 2 Snodland Town U18s
A fantastic goal line clearance by Will prevented us going a goal down in the first 10 minutes and Staplehurst were unlucky when they hit a volley from 30 yards out which smashed against the post. But when we started pressing and closing them down Staplehurst couldn’t play their usual flowing passing game. 0-0 at half time.
A change to 4-4-2 seemed to suit us better and on 55 minutes, we played a good move down the right which saw James play a lovely through ball to Jamie who finished with a classy chip over the keeper. We did create a few more chances which we should have taken to kill the game off but on 72 minutes Staplehurst equalised. A point would have been decent outcome, but these boys never ever give up and with the last move of the game, from a corner, Jamie bundled the ball home from about a yard. Great scenes! A fantastic 2-1 victory against a very good side.
Snodland Town U18s 5 – 1 Istead United
Another tough physical game and after a slow start the boys settled down and started to play their football. It took 8 minutes for us to take the lead, with our first shot on target. James picked the ball up in midfield and skipped past a couple of challenges before playing the ball out to Sam who put in a pin point cross to Ciaran who slotted the ball home from 10 yards.
The next 25 minutes were very scrappy with neither team really taking control until Will produced a moment of magic by flicking the ball over the Istead right back and volleying into the far corner from 20 yards out. A goal of the season contender!! This seemed to settle us down and Zack then scored a poachers goal, just before half time, after another good move down the right hand side. 3-0 at half time.
We started slowly in the second half and Istead pulled a goal back on 53 minutes after a good finish from their striker lobbing the ball over Tommy. We made a few changes and also went to a 4-4-2 formation which seemed to suit us better. Ciaran scored 2 goals in 3 minutes to complete his hat-trick and give us an impressive 5-1 victory. Again all the boys did what I asked and worked their socks off. A big well done to all.
K Sports 1 – 3 Snodland Town Nomads U18s
An excellent victory when all the boys battled superbly. We started with a 4-5-1 formation and I asked the boys to drop deep and play on the counter attack, using Ciaran and Josh’s pace and skill. They all listened to the instructions and did exactly as I asked. 0-0 at half time would have been a decent score, but Harry’s free kick from the halfway line sailed over everyone and into the net. 1-0 up at half time and we had restricted K Sports to just one shot from long range.
We had Jamie and Kieron in the second half and this made a difference as K Sports tired. We did concede a poor goal from long range, which should have been cleared and K Sports had a 10 minute spell where they looked like they may go on and win the game, but the boys had other ideas. Josh won a corner after a great run down the left and then took the corner, which Ciaran did very well to score with a great header from 6 yards, into the roof of the net. Then with a few minutes left, Harry won a superb defensive header, we then broke with pace and Zach played a lovely right footed cross into the box for Ciaran to volley in from 6 yards out to seal the points. Another very impressive and hardworking performance from all the lads. Man of the Match: Harry Gearing & Ciaran St Clair.
I asked a few lads to play in positions they didn’t want to and they all did a brilliant job for the team. No moaning or questioning what I was asking and this is why we are getting the results we are. It’s not always pretty, but it is very effective and will serve the boys well as they progress on to next season and in to men’s football.
