Saffron Walden PSG Blue and Black face the camera


Saffron Walden PSG Blacks under-12s earned bragging rights over the Blues with a 2-1 win under the floodlights at Saffron Walden Town’s Catons Lane.

The girls were well drilled by coaches Rob Lewin and Trevor Bissett, as the crowd enjoyed the luxury of covered seating.

And the match began well, with both teams producing some excellent play and chances at both ends.

Despite some solid defending, the Blues took an early lead when a shot from Uma just beat Blacks goalkeeper Freya.

The Blacks responded well and a spell of pressure led to an equaliser from Elea, with a crisp finish just before the interval.

PSG Blacks piled on the pressure in the second half, hitting the post, but Blues defended well and looked dangerous on the break.

Elea claimed her second goal from close range to settle the outcome, though, as both teams enjoyed a fantastic experience.
