Under 16's vs Ditton Minors Youth FC

Match Date: 28 October 2018
Score: 6-2

After recent postponements and cup games, today felt like the first game of the season!
We welcomed a Ditton side who were above us in the league - although having only played one game, most teams currently were!

We looked good from kick-off: our defence won the ball comfortably and passed out to composed, industrious midfielders.
Our forwards hounded their ailing back line and within 15 minutes, we had created (and spurned) five good chances.

Then, of course, we conceded from a long clearance and a deflected effort. One shot, one goal. (1-0)
Shell-shocked, the message was to continue in the same vein as before.

It wasn't long before a sublime through-ball from Mason Payne created a race between Jolyon Lee and their keeper......anyone who has seen our forward sprint knows who reached the ball first!
He coolly slotted home into an empty net. (1-1)

They scored a well-taken effort in another counter-attack, in only their second shot of the game (2-1), but we were well on top by then and responded through Sam Hill. (2-2)

After that, we showed class, composure and quality all over the pitch and should have hit double-figures.
In the end, goals from Mason, Daz (2) and another from Jolyon secured a solid victory for our promising Bearsted U15 team.
