Mid Lincs Youth League

Harrowby United Under 14s 4

St Helens Under 14s 2

A visit from any of the Mid Lincs teams to the Envirocom Stadium always brings out the best in Harrowby’s Under 14s and newly-promoted St Helens were no exception.

The visitors scored first through Woodhall and this served to spark the young Arrows into life.

After some great approach play, central defender Joe Down equalised with a well taken header.

Not to be outdone, Korban Read then scored the goal of the game with a cracking shot from 25 yards, giving the keeper no chance, to give Harrowby a 2-1 half-time advantage.

End to end football was the story of the second period with both teams going close and man of the match Joe Angeloni mopping up many of the visitors’ attacks.

With only 10 minutes remaining, St Helens got an equaliser through Woodhall once again and they must have thought they could possibly snatch a winner at that stage.

They threw everything at the young Arrows in the final few minutes.

But this left their defence vulnerable and Harrowby’s speedy strikers Cox and Hull capitalised with two well taken goals to end the visitors’ hopes and secure the points.

It is now seven out of seven and unbeaten in the league for the Arrows - a great first half of the season.

Nottingham U15 Youth League

Sherwood White U15s 3

Barrowby U15s 7

After a succession of wins Barrowby took to the field in a confident mood but Sherwood proved no pushover and competed well throughout the game.

At half time Barrowby were 5-1 up and looked comfortable but with some changes made by the home side for the second half, Barrowby came under pressure.

Sterling defensive work by midfielders Kay, Parks, Cann and man of the match Skoyles helped see off the threat.

Ludew and Kay both netted a brace and the other Barrowby goals came from Brewill, Cann and Dudley to help clinch three points.
