Under-12s Division Four
BOUNCING back from the disappointing defeat of their previous outing, Bishop's Stortford Rovers came into this game with only nine players available and a mountain to climb.
Positive from the outset, Rovers played with a dogged determination and after a few attempts on the Melbourn goal their efforts finally paid off with a fine goal from Sam Kolarik.

This was soon followed by a second, once again from man-of-the-match Kolarik, and Rovers slowly but surely began to take control of the game.
Rovers went in 3-0 up at half-time courtesy of a Will Sandy strike, after Rovers' keeper Tom Beckett had made a fine penalty save to deny Melbourn.

Melbourn never gave up, and pressed Rovers to score a late goal for the game to finish 5 - 1 and a well deserved Rovers victory.
