SFC Stormvogels u9ís 0-2 Newcastle Town u9ís (Harley Cole, Aiden Mellor)
Newcastle Town u9ís were denied a clear penalty and the victory as they battled to a 0-0 draw away at third placed SFC Stormvogels u9ís. The first half was played mainly in the middle of the park as both teams adapted to the poor condition of the pitch. Castle had some nice build up play and Stormvogels were restricted to a few long range efforts which keeper Henry Hadgett caught well. The introduction of striker josh Onions at half time changed the game. The powerful front man terrorised the defence but was unable to convert a number of chances. A run from inside his own half ended with the keeper saving well and a half volley from outside the box was struck over the bar. Onions was then bought down by the keeper after smartly going past him but the referee failed to blow. Reece Bloor put in a man of the match performance at the back, winning everything and keeping the Stormvogels attack at bay. In the end both sides will be happy with the point gained.
Newcastle Town u9ís recorded a memorable victory away at SFC Stormvogels u9ís as keeper Henry Hadgett kept his fourth clean sheet in a row. In what was an entertaining game Harley Cole and a moment of magic from Aiden Mellor secured three points for the visitors. The first half was competitive with both sides going for victory. Reece Bloor played in a more forward role of central midfield and showed calmness on the ball feeding wingers Mellor and Cole. Neither side could get the break through until Castlesí pressure finally told. A corner found its way to Cole in the box who controlled well and fired home to give his side the lead. The second half was much of the same with Hadgett dealing well with some long range efforts. Then the game was put to bed through Mellorís magic. Castle won a free kick just past the halfway line and with everyone expecting a cross Mellor had other ideas, he smashed a looping effort over everyone straight into the back of the net. It was Mellorís 12th of the season and he is now the teams leading goalscorer. Castle smartly played out the rest of the game to secure a 2-0 victory and they have now not conceded in four games, scoring five.
