U8 reunion today as both teams were playing at home. It started with the oranges kicking off against Royston and they were the lucky ones, finishing their game before it rained!! It was great to see Louis back in the team having recovered from a broken ankle, welcome back Louis, we have all missed you. The Hares got off to a good start with Charlie H, our little pocket rocket, scoring in the first quarter and they never looked back. A hattrick from William and an amazing save from Charlie R in the last quarter meant the boys came home happy. Some great passing, defensive work and assists from Ethan meant he was made MOTM. Once again the boys did us proud, well done
Well the rain started just about kick off time for the u8 blacks this morning and a bit like the weather our boys were relentless and refusing to stop!! The game didn’t take long to get started with an opening goal from Stanley in the first quarter and the boys continued to apply pressure from that moment forwards. With William missing in goal, Finley stepped up to take his place and did a great job, ensuring Letchworth were limited in their attacking opportunities. Despite the ball being mainly in the away half all of our boys took the opportunity to get involved and played some great attacking football. Samuel voted MOTM for some great dribbling, passing and attacking moves, well done boys
The Under 14’s travelled to Lemsford Youth this weekend hoping to continue their 100% start to their League campaign. The game started well for The Hares and on 9 minutes Ben Livermore fed George Clark who netted to make it 1-0. 2 minutes later 1-0 became 2-0 when Joey Wedge ran onto a long ball through the middle to score. A very dubious penalty awarded to Lemsford, who put the spot kick away gave the home side some hope. However George Clark netted his second after a fine cross from Joey Wedge from the right and Luke Spowart scored from a deflected free-kick to make it 1-4 at half time to The Hares. The second half began as the first had finished, with The Hares enjoying most of the possession. With the home side’s defence clearly having an off day the next 30 minutes or so became the Joey Wedge show, who netted his 2nd, 3rd, 4th 5th 6th and 7th goals of the game, with Lemsford only being able to add 1 more goal to their tally in between his goal spree. A re-shuffle of the team by the coaches by swapping players positions around for the last 10 minutes or so spared the home side any more embarrassment and the game finished with a very comfortable 2-10 win for The Hares. A much harder proposition awaits The Hares next week with a home game against unbeaten Hoddesdon Town. Despite Joey’s goals it was Dom Hart who earned himself the MOTM award with an excellent solid performance at the back.
