U18s v Colchester by Clive Mills

Great win for the U18's last night when they ran out convincing winners 27-4 against Colchester in a show of supreme strength, teamwork and technical ability.

With only 9 players with 2 of those being U14 and 1 U13 a lot depended on the 6 older players to produce commanding performances and boy did they.

Tom Gould was up to his normal excellent standards and even managed to play on pitch in the 4th quarter and bag himself a goal.

Connor was outstanding in defence and did not let anything past him all night, got himself a goal and should now make the move into the senior squad.

Thomas and Fin controlled the middle of the pool with great authority and covered every area of the pitch in both their attacking and defending duties and rightly both got goals which their performances deserved. Fin even went in goal for the last quarter but was beaten a a great back flip, shame it was from Connor though!!

James and Brad ran riot in attack and bagged a total of 20 goals between them. The Colchester defenders just could not handle their power and pace and it was a joy to watch these 2 players in such great form.
A special mention must go to the 3 'junior' players who made up the remainder of the team. Joel, Liam and Joshua M. were all brilliant and did not once look out of place playing at this level. All 3 did exactly what was asked of them with Joshua getting his name on the score sheet when following up a shot that had come back off the bar.

All 3 should be very proud of their performances and contribution to the overall team performance and result.
