A friendly match against Stonnall Juniors U14’s at a lovely ground, a well-kept football pitch at the playing fields in Stonnall. After the kick off Colron Boys were quick to stamp their authority on the game with some robust tackles and accurate passing, and just seven minutes into the match Harry puts his name on the score sheet, five minutes later a foul in the Stonnall Juniors box and the ref blows for a penalty. Benzie step up and blasts the ball into the net giving the Stonnall keeper no chance. Bobby scores four minutes later, giving Colron a well-deserved three goal to nil lead at half time.
The whistle blows for the second half and after the initial midfield battle the Colron Boys are caught napping and the home team take advantage by scoring just two minutes into the second half. The match is now 1-3 to Colron. It’s a wake-up call! And a minute later Shavoy scores restoring Colron’s three goal advantage. Shavoy wasn’t finished scoring and adds another goal five minutes later. Colron continues to control play and create chances against a Stonnall team that stubbornly resisted Colron’s attacking play. Harry finally breaks though and gets his second of the game with ten minutes remaining. The last goal of the match just before the ref blows for full time goes to Ryan, who had been terrorising the Stonnall defence all morning. The match finishes 1-7 to Colron, another dominate game of football by the boys.
Congratulations to Ryan (parents’ player) and Ginge (man of the match) well played boys!
