Broadhall Youth 0 Elsenham 7
Under-11s Division Three
DESPITE a depleted squad, which meant Elsenham were not able to field 11 first team players, they still came away from their match with Broadhall with a magnificent 7-0 victory.
George Greenhalgh, who was told to hang back outside the box in the event of an attacking phase breakdown, scored the first by clipping a 30-yarder which was in the second it left his laces.
Pressure from the goal kick led to the second and good wing play and cross from Harry Binnnington to Thomas Blake led to the third for 3-0 at half time.
Aston Bowden's through ball to Blake saw him power down the line and as he moved goalwards he hit an absolute pile driver into the bottom corner for 4-0, and as Broadhall's heads started to drop Elsenham upped their game.

Elsenham's tackles were hard and fair and showed desire and determination when it would have been much easier for them to ease up and save their energy.
The visitors were rewarded with two superb team goals that involved passing, movement and double one-two's finished off by Harvey Cockram and Bowden.
At 6-0 the players somehow found the stamina and strength to push forward again and Bowden obliged Greenhalgh with a one-two and his second of the game.
