Slazenger U12 boys continued their good start to the season this weekend with some confident performances,
Slazengers A (1) Leeds A (1)
Slazengers once again seemed to dominate the game and took the lead through a well taken goal from Matthew Chilton, they continued to press and just got caught off guard within the final few minutes to concede a goal against the run off play, this turned out to be a respectable result as the Leeds team went on to win all their other games.
Slazengers A (0) Driffield A (0)
The team played with good movement and ball speed, they were unlucky not to score but the Driffield keeper managed to keep a clean sheet and the Slazenger forwards at bay. Another good performance from the team and everyone worked well as a team.
Slazengers A (0) Bingley A (0)
Much like the previous game Slazenger’s controlled the game an outstanding performance from the Bingley keeper kept Bingley in the game. Again and again the Slazenger attached the Bingley goal but
came away frustrated.
Slazengers A (2) Thirsk B (0)
Slazengers went into the game more relaxed, and it paid off, another goal from Matthew Chilton and one from Joshua Cole put the game out of reach of a good Thirsk side, the Slazenger defence was not pressured and cleared up the loose ball, seeing a comfortable win.
Slazengers A (0) Bradford A (0)
The boys finished with a draw and again unlucky to come away with another win, they pressured the Bradford defence and there was some scrambling defence in the last minute to ensure they came away with a point.
Slazengers u12 B team
The new development team played their first games this weekend, and started off their season in great style,
They lost their first game to Ben Rhydding 2 – 0 but the signs were good as they still tried to push forward and not give in to the pressure of a strong Ben Rhydding side.
They then followed this with a 1-0 win over Chapletown, a 2-1 win over Wakefield D team and a 3-0 win against Wakefield C team, the team got better and better,they all played for each other with some good defensive work and great passing, to say that 4 members of the team made their debuts it was an outstanding result.
The goals came from Daniel Singleton (3) Mollie Gilbert (2) and Katie Minchella.
A very big well done to both teams.
