Thorley Manor under-13s continued their winning streak with a 10-0 triumph over Stotfold Juniors.

Hadley led the way with a hat-trick as the team did not let the bad weather affect their performance.

Cooper, Lucca and Archie all bagged braces and Charlie joined them on the score sheet.

The under-14s passed the ball well through midfield and showed bags of determination as they won 4-2 at Wymondley Park.

The visitors were able to convert some of their many chances after the break while they defended solidly.

Under-12 Black could be really proud of their display against Bassingbourn with only eight players to call upon.

They ran themselves into the ground and battled for every ball from start to finish, as well as keeping their heads and sticking to their pass-and-move style.

And they stood firm in the face of real pressure as they produced some tough tackling while Will excelled in goal.

The under-11s caught the eye with their movement and one-touch passing when they took on Letchworth Garden City Eagles.

They used the wind to their advantage in the second period as they camped inside the opponents' half to carve out numerous opportunities.

Under-eight Black were involved in a very even contest in muddy conditions against Hitchin-based FC Comets.

It took the Thorley boys a little while to get going following a week off before they produced their usual tackling and passing.

Meanwhile, there were ghouls as well as goals at the club's Mini Manor sessions – for children aged four to nine on Saturdays – this Hallowe'en weekend.
