Alnwick U8 Giants...8 Longhorsley...0
(Saturday, November 12)
ALNWICK continued their undefeated start to the season with a hard fought game against a good, strong Longhorsley side.
The opening exchanges were very tight with Alnwick’s Matty C and Tyler very strong in defence and Harry having his best game in goal behind them.
The hard running of Harvey, Joe and Ethan in midfield soon saw the deadlock broken with the prolific Cameron scoring the first of his three goals in the first period (1-0).
Alnwick began to play some of their best football of the season letting the ball do the work with some lovely passing movements throughout the game leading to goals being scored at regular intervals.
Connor and Mathew M caused the Longhorsley defence a lot of problems in the first half with Mathew M also having his best game of the season.
Tyler replaced Harry in goal and he continued his good work between the sticks ensuring Alnwick kept a well-deserved clean-sheet.
Goals from Cameron (three), the hard-working Harvey (three), Joe (one), and a ‘was it or wasn’t it over the line’ after a great cross from Matty C and a poacher’s finish from Connor. The goal was finally given to Connor by his eagle-eyed manager.
The Alnwick boys would like to thank Northumbria Pets and Total Flooring for supplying them with kit bags for the season.
