US Valerio Youth B - 8,
Eaton Bray Lions - 5

EB Lions started the match well with a goal from Jack Coates and a second from Matt Storey within the first ten minutes. However, the home team fought back and were rewarded with two goals in quick succession to draw level.

Further attacking play from US Valerio gained them a third goal, a simple header from a corner, and Lions conceded an own goal just before half-time.

US Valerio could have scored more but the Lions' defence, Matt Lancefield, Josh Gradley and Lee Cavendish, played the offside rule effectively.

Jack Coates scored for Lions early in the second half. Velerio responded with a header and Sam Marshall followed up an attacking move to be rewarded with a goal.

Charlie Oliver worked hard in goal (with some help from the goalposts) to fend off another period of attacking play from US Valerio and then play shifted to the opposite end as Lions desperately strived for an equaliser.

Unfortunately Lions could no longer fend off the home team who scored another three in quick successions.

Matt Storey scored his second to give a final score of 8-5.

Andrew Broughton was awarded man of the match for consistent hard work.
