U17s Win Divisional Cup

Our U17s have won the North East Youth Division U17 Divisional Cup game, beating Stakeford Juniors on penalties after the game finished 1-1 after extra time at Croft Park, Blyth.

In a game of few chances it was Stakeford who took the lead with 7 minutes remaining when a well delivered free-kick from the right hand side evaded the Juniors defence leaving the on rushing Stakeford forward the opportunity to finish from close range. Juniors equalised in the dying seconds of normal time after the Stakeford keeper could only deflect a firmly struck Matthew Brooks free kick into the path of Tom Hizzett who smashed the ball into the roof of the net.

Extra time could not separate the teams so it was down to a penalty shootout to decide the winner. Matthew Brooks, Connor Terry & Ciaran Hanna all successfully converted their kicks whilst Finn Hodgson performed heroics in the Juniors goal saving three of the four Stakeford kicks to bring the Cup back to Ann Welfare!

U13 Reds Edge Out The Whites

It was Juniors verses Juniors, Reds against Whites in the final of the U13 North East Youth Division Divisional Cup Final played at Blyth Town FC in what could only be described as “changeable” weather conditions. In a tight encounter it was the Whites who came the closest to scoring in normal time when Cameron Smith stooped to crash a header against the bar. Whilst the Reds dominated play and had a number of good opportunities, the resolute Whites defence stood firm throughout. Just as the game seemed destined for a shootout the referee, deemed that Ethan Smith had been fouled in the box and awarded a penalty. Displaying nerves of steel Will Dowling calmly slotted the ball past the despairing dive of Jack Wakelam in the Whites goal. The dying minutes of the game saw the Reds add a second through Michael Johnstone after he closed down a defensive clearance and poked the ball home at the near post to make the final score 2-0 to the Reds.
