Slazenger U10 boys opened their latest campaign with a hard fought 1-1 draw against Doncaster. A fine goal from Tyler O’Connor backed up with solid defensive work from Josh Proctor ensured honours even.
Slaz followed up with two 2-1 victories over Brigg and Airedale with O’Connor (2) and Tommy Randle (2) finding the net, with
Luke Minchella working tirelessly all afternoon up and down the right flank providing a number of dangerous crosses. Dom Sanderson in goal made sure of maximum points with some outstanding work.
At the back, Lewis Killey, Alex Hobson and Josh Proctor provided a solid base to build on all morning, however the boys came up against table toppers Harrogate and were unfortunate to go down 2-0.
The final game against Ben Rhydding saw Slazengers regain their form and spent the entire game camped in the opponents half however – mainly due to some outstanding saves made by the Ryhdding keeper, they could not break the deadlock.
Slazengers finished a credible third in the league and look forward to their next outing in the top division.
