Royston Celtic U-9 A 0 Arlesey Town Youth 0
AFTER a gap of two weeks without a game, this was a match fraught with high emotions, but the quality of the play far outshone the tensions on the pitch.
Celtic put out a strong team that piled on the pressure for the visitors. Callum Pinner, Ollie Green and Brandon Hargreaves proved a formidable force, and although they all worked well together with some accurate passes they failed to score despite coming close on several occasions.
Charlie Bartlett and Jordan Cooney worked their magic in defence preventing the opponents from creating any chances of scoring.
All in all, it was a great physical game, which was exciting to watch despite no shots finding the net.

THE B team once again came out tops with a comfortable win against Arlesey
Matthew Foley and Edward Atkins fired continual shots at the keeper, but failed to score in the first half.
However, Tom McGlynn and Atkins proved a worthy combination and an Atkins' cross to McGlynn resulted in the first goal, and the same player made it 2-0 just before the break.
The visitors were unable to keep up with the home team but did manage to score early in the second half.
However, their glory was short-lived as McGlynn, steamed in for his third goal making a hat-trick.
As if that was not enough punishment for the visitors, Atkins and Cudmore had their persistent efforts rewarded as they both put shots past the keeper.
