Thorley Manor under-11s were 5-4 winners in a nine-goal thriller against Stotfold
Thorley Manor under-11s were 5-4 winners in a nine-goal thriller against Stotfold.
In their first league match since March, Thorley saw their 3-0 lead get wiped out before showing huge character to find a winner despite having no substitutes to call upon.
Seb scored twice and there were efforts from Cameron and Benji along with an own goal.
Midfielder Will came out on top in a great battle with the opposition No 35 and there were also great performances from Callum, Toby, Luca, Seb, Kari and Oliver.
The under-12s sealed a convincing 4-1 victory when they took on Buntingford Cougars Stripes.
The coaches focused on some key points in the warm-up which helped take the team to the next level with lots of excellent passing and moving.
The club's new under-seven and under-nine teams got their first tastes of match action.
The goals flew in at both ends and all of the players had great fun when the under-sevens took on Royston Town.
And the under-nines claimed a solid win as hard work on their passing and shooting in training paid dividends against Manuden.
The under-eights started their league campaign with matches against IMI Academy and Shephall United after a seven-month break.
They played with smiles on their faces throughout, despite struggling with their fitness in the latter stages, and amongst the goals were Alex, Louis and Harrison.
The under-13s worked hard and supported each other in a 5-0 defeat at the hands of Letchworth Garden City Eagles Aquas, with the final score not reflecting their attitude, passing and movement.
Things might have been different had the Aquas goalkeeper been sent off when he brought down Aaron Stevens in a one-on-one situation and was the last man, but he was allowed to stay on the pitch.
