Saffron Walden youth football round up


Saffron Walden Blacks continued their 100 per cent record in the Cambridgeshire A League with an impressive 5-1 win over Isleham.

A hat-trick from Alfie Moss, a bullet header from Jacob Park and an own goal secured the victory.


Stotfold 1 Spartak 78 2

Spartak returned to winning form in beating Stotfold Juniors away.

Both teams created chances in the early part of the first half but it was Spartak who had the upper hand and dominated play. James Hall’s header from a well-taken Callum Chapman corner gave them the lead in the 16th minute.

An impressive passing move found striker Chapman who fired home the second after 19 minutes.

Stotfold pulled one back on 42 minutes but missed the chance to equalise when the striker fired a penalty over the crossbar.


Red Lodge 3 Saffron Hawks 6

Hawks started slowly, but went 2-1 up by half time with goals from David Cetin.

They then found their feet and the goals went flying in. Diogo Goncalo and Luke Sparks each added to the score line.

In defence Jack Forster, Luke Jackson, Lewis Sell and Jordan Sandwell worked hard with keeper Jack Thompson to keep the Red Lodge forwards out.

Alfie Marks added two more as the score finished 6-3.


Manuden played their first home game of the season at their new ground at Stansted FC.

A minute’s silence was observed before the game for the ex-Manuden United footballer Gary Connor who died the previous weekend.

Manuden went on to win the game 5-4 ,with goals from Harry Hudson, James Murfitt, Cameron Johnstone and a brace from Harry Grosvenor to continue the team’s 100 per cent start to the season.

Girls football

PSG FC U10’s returned to Sutton Rangers who they had beaten 6-0 on the opening day of the season.

They had the better chances in the first half and were 1-0 up at half time.

PSG doubled their lead early in the second half before Sutton came back strongly and were rewarded with a goal. With the game in the balance PSG scored a vital third goal which combined with some good defending by Daisy Barns and Sophie Tobitt was enough to secure their fourth consecutive win.
