Local youth football round up


Haverhill Rovers White 0 Plantation Youth Green 2

Plantation gained a hard fought and well deserved win, with one of their best all round performances of the season.

Finley Bates broke the deadlock early in the second half with a strong run and unstoppable shot.

Keeper Will Rand made a stunning save from a shot bound for the top corner five minutes from time, and in the final minute Eli Salmon volleyed home a Kyle Harris cross to secure victory.


A fixture backlog saw Plantation play out two tight matches at Herberts Farm against promotion rivals Albion Youth.

A fourth minute save from Josh Bates, from a long range looping shot, proved crucial as Plantation took maximum points from the first match with a 12th minute Louis Eady penalty, after Tanzim Khan had been pushed, for the only score in the game.

It was not until the 19th minute of the second match that Khan picked scored from a rebound. Just after half time, Max Halls connected with Khan’s cross to drill past the keeper and put Plantation 2-0 ahead. Another fine point blank save from Bates rescued Plantation before Albion scored in the dying seconds to make the score 2-1.


Soham Town Rangers 4 SWTFC 2

Walden continued their away travels with a trip to Soham Town Rangers.

The young Bloods took an eighth minute lead when Harry Clark bundled the ball over the line from close range from a George Powell corner. Soham equalised but Powell restored the lead when Powell drilled the ball home after good work from Machai Tolosi.

The second half belonged to Soham Town, who run in three goals to seal the victory.


Manuden ran out convincing winners at Hargrave Park, winning 7-1 with goals from Cameron Johnstone, James Murfitt (2), Harry Grosvenor (2), Brad Godfrey and Harry Walker.
