U13 Blue

Blues Win Local Derby

(Dean Leyland 17/11/2019)
The Blues were back in league action this week and welcomed Vale Juniors Bears for a local derby.

Vale started brightly and open the scoring early with a low shot that squeezed under the Rovers keeper in the wet conditions for 1-0.

Rovers had started slowly but found themselves back in the game shortly afterwards when a shot from Richardson went in off the post following a corner.

Rovers soon made it 2-1 with a great run and cross from Willcock was finished neatly by Maddox at the far post. Then with half time upon us Hibbert controlled the bouncing ball to pass the ball into the bottom corner for 3-1 at half time.

Rovers were flying and made it 4-1 just after the break with a great run and shot from Willcock, which was followed minutes later by Brindley who pounced on a defensive mix up to drill a low shot into the corner 5-1.

Then Maddox doubled his tally finishing another excellent run and cross from Willcock and tucking a low shot inside the post for 6-1. Then is was Willcock's turn as Skarratt set him up for 7-1.

Rovers were camped inside the Vale half and Leyland missed a sitter before Brindley did what his manager keeps telling him and passed the ball into the corner of the goal for 8-1.

Vale were not dishearten though and came back with two well taken goals to make the score 8-3 and a hat-trick for Gittins. They played with a great deal of heart and pride and were a credit, but it was left to Brindley to have the last say as he completed his hat-trick with the last kick of the game, a rasping drive into the top corner from the edge of the penalty area. Final score 9-3 to Rovers and the bragging rights at school on Monday.
