Double-figure wins for Predators under-16s and Chi City Colts under-14s feature in our latest youth football round-up.
Predators Youth 11 Felpham Colts 1
A week after their last meeting, both teams came out ready for this Challenge Cup tie and it wasn’t long before Felpham opened the scoring.
Predators fought back and it didn’t take long for them to take control.
Soon a miscued shot by Oliver saw the ball poked in by Irish, who quickly added three more - his fourth a screaming shot from 40 yards.
The second half saw Predators keeper Williams with little to do as he watched his team-mates dominate.
Davies got his name on the scoresheet with a sneaky tap-in. The Felpham goalie pulled off good saves but Predators kept the shots firing in with Farndell and Irish scoring.
Felpham battled on but Predators picked up all the loose balls and punished the opposition with Farndell, Birch and Davies taking the score out of their reach.
Williams came out of goal to swap positions with Rodway. The final goal of the game came from Josling. Man of the Match was Irish.
Predators: Irish, Rodway, Birch, Josling, Blackman, Farndell, Williams, Jukes, Davies, Bosco-Brown, Hillier, Cook, Oliver.
Chi City Colts 11 Worthing Dynamo 0
This was Chichester’s first home match at Fishbourne this season and the final score was reward for a fabulous performance.
The Worthing keeper pulled off some great saves to keep the scoreline to 11.
Goals came from Jack Chambers, Dylan Smith, Sam Reading, Oliver Poole (2), Fynn Turner-Kilburn (2) and Joseph Roman (4).
Reading pulled on the keeper’s jersey for the majority of the second half to enable Brandon Baxter to have a deserved run-out.
The referee named Turner-Kilburn as man of the match.
COLTS: Baxter, Hewitt, Johnson (C), Reading, Mead, Smith, Davies, Roman, Poole, Turner-Klburn, Chambers. Subs Wiseman, Adams.
Predators Youth 6 Worthing Rebels Youth Blue 2
Predators got their first win of the season.
They pressed hard from kick-off and with man of the match Ashley Butler working hard, they dominated the midfield.
Brandon Williams opened the scoring before Sean Donner added a second. Worthing fought back, reducing the deficit, before Williams took a chance to score his second.
Alfie Daniels scored his first for the club following a strong run from left-back. Worthing scored again before Jordan Smith gave Predators a three-goal cushion at half-time.
The goals dried up in the second half but Worthing could not stop Williams from completing his second hat-trick of the season, gifted a goal from a defensive mix up, as Predators ran out comfortable winners.
PREDATORS: Fellows, Burford, Butler, Clarke, Daniels, Donner, Hamilton, Hanslip, Humphries, McCabe, Simmonds, Smith, Williams.
