Saffron Walden local youth football round up


Plantation Youth 3 Letchworth GCE Blues 1

Plantation extended their unbeaten league run to six matches, moving up to second place in the process, with a comfortable victory over Letchworth.

An early Ollie Newman header crashed against the crossbar before Louis Eady’s driving run and shot was deflected in by a Blues defender after 25 minutes. Eady added a second three minutes later running on to a weighted pass from Adam Whitehead to drill low into the corner of the net.

Letchworth got back into the game with a scrambled goal and shortly afterward a fine fingertip save from Josh Bates kept the lead intact.

Max Halls wrapped up the points with a well struck penalty on 55 minutes after a foul on Josh Boyd.


Manuden 5 Spartak 78 2

A good team performance earned Manuden the win in difficult conditions.

George Berrett opened the scoring with a well-worked goal on 23 minutes. Manuden continued to have the better of the chances for the rest of the first half but failed to add to the score before half time.

Spartak started the second half quickly and scored an early goal to level the score.

Manuden’s second goal coming from a looping shot from Josh Howlett, and the third from Sam Watts who was put through after a

defence-splitting pass from Alex Rinaldi-Jones.

Spartak pulled a goal back to make it and set up a tense finish. But late strikes from Lewis Wake ensured the win for Manuden.

PSG FC 1 Chatteris Town 0

PSG FC finished 2013 on a high with a hard-fought victory over Chatteris Town.

The visitors battled to restrict PSG to just a few chances in the first half, but top scorer Kayleigh Tucker made no mistake with a simple finish at the far post to put the hosts in front.

The game opened up in the second half and the best chances fell to PSG, but a last gasp goal-line block was followed by some excellent Chatteris goalkeeping to deny PSG a second.
