Saffron Walden youth football round up


Waterbeach Colts 0 Spartak 78 4

IN their first league match of 2013, Spartak U10B put in a dominant performance against Waterbeach Colts without stepping out of third gear.

They took the lead on 20 minutes when midfielder Tomas Lister scored following a solo run from the edge of his own box.

Spartak had the majority of the posession but were denied on several occasions by the Waterbeach keeper.

It wasn’t until seven minutes that Spartak doubled the advantage, Charley Stark placing a neat free-kick from just outside the box beyond the host keeper.

It was more of the same after the break and Aiden Stoten made the game safe with a well-taken third.

A neatly-slotted penalty from Lister wrapped up an impressive victory fro Spartak, who remain undefeated in league matches since May 2011.

A SPIRITED fight back in the second half saw Spartak secure a draw away to Hatfield Youth having been 2-0 down at half-time.

Spartak created all the early chances but were caught out as Hatfield scored a breakaway goal with their first attack. The home side followed that up with a second goal midway through the first half.

The second half saw a determined Spartak work hard to get back into the game and they were rewarded when Aaron Wright scored a super goal from the edge of the area.

Spartak then rattled the Hatfield bar twice but grabbed their equaliser after a goalmouth scramble when Brad Manning forced the ball in from close range.
