U15s - Match Report


(Liz Greening 16/03/2020)

7    Congleton Rovers JFC U15s
0    3G Betley Youth

(Match Date: Sunday 8th March 2020)
Congratulations to Congleton Rovers U15 who eased into the Final of the League Cup scoring seven without reply against Betley Youth. The day didn’t start well for Rovers when their goalkeeper Jack Molloy was unable to play due to illness. However, Reuben Thornden who stepped up to put the gloves on did a great job as stand in making some good saves albeit he was not the busiest of the two keepers.

Within minutes of the Kick off Rovers went one up through Jack Holt and they went on to the second and third in quick succession with goals from Noah Zimmerman with a shot from outside the box which curled into the top corner & Alfie Taylor with a fine header. Milo James broke clear and neatly slotted in the fourth before half time.

The second half played out pretty much the same as the first with Rovers adding three more goals with a second for Jack Holt, a typical poachers goal, Lewis Johnson and a second for Milo James after a great cross from Lewis Johnson.

The back four, ably led by Matt Hart, were dominant in defence making life very difficult for the Betley attackers.
That said, Betley battled valiantly and were unfortunate that they were up against a Rovers team who are in good form and were just too good for them on the day.

Well Rovers and good look in the upcoming Final.
