Under-12s Division Three

Having had most of the early exchanges, the Colts went ahead when Jordan Howe finished off a through ball by Bradley Calvert.

The Colts were still celebrating when man-of-the-match Jack Gwether was unable to stop an FC Comets shot at his goal.

The Colts still enjoyed most of the play and a long clearance from Gwether was controlled by Howe who sent a first time shot from outside the area into the bottom corner past the outstretched hand of the goalkeeper.

It seemed the Colts had not learnt from their earlier mistake, however, and they conceded another goal more-or-less from the kick-off.

The second half was a much more even affair with good defensive play by the back four of captain Josh Toovey, Sam Chapman, Troy Mayo and Conor Eustace.

FC Comets regularly threatened with some excellent corners but the game was won by a moment of sheer brilliance when Cameron Smith collected the ball on the halfway line before going on a mazy run and sending an unstoppable curling shot into the back of the net.

Colts: Gwether, Chapman, Toovey, Mayo, Eustace, Harris, Smith, Noades, Mansfield, Calvert, Howe, Way, Reader.
