ORMESBY LADS U10 made the long early morning trip to Harleston and were under pressure from the start as the home side looked to take an early advantage. It wasn't long before Ormesby went a goal down when the striker slipped the ball under Antonio as he came off his line. After the goal Ormesby started to get a foothold in the game with Carter, Leon and Ben working the keeper. Andrew and Jamie were looking more assured in defence and Antonio's concentration and handling when dealing with the long high balls coming at him was faultless. With 10 minutes of the first half remaining Victoria came on a showed the boys how it should be done when she equalised with a confident finish for her second goal in three games. The second half was end-to-end with Harleston missing two good chances before Carter made a great run down the left and finished with style with a shot across the keeper and into the far corner. Jordan almost broke through for a run on goal, but was robbed by the defender in the dying minutes. MoM: Carter, hard working and a goal worthy of winning any game. Next game is at home against Freethorpe, kick off 11am, Station Road.

COBHOLM BOYS U12 visited Waveney D who ran out 10-1 winners due to lack of marking, chasing back, pushing up and most of all, tackling. A nice first goal for Ryan, the highlight of Cobholm's afternoon. Well done to the five that worked hard again, the others need to take note. Training 10am Saturday, this is the only way you will improve by training and taking it seriously. Thank you to the supporters, hopefully we will start improving to make it more enjoyable to watch!

FILBY AND RUNHAM welcomed Harleston Youth. Watty went close twice after a couple of jinxy runs but Harleston scored first, then added two more after some unfortunate defending and a lot of bad luck for F&R. Watty, again after a mazy run, slotted one home. Bradley and Greeny added two more in the next five minutes for 3-3. Only 20 seconds into the second half, from a free-kick midway in the opponents half, Ross sent a pacy cross into the area which was met by Watty at the far post for 4-3. Three minutes later Harleston levelled. Nathen R hit a post, JB was unlucky not to score. The deadlock was broken when Harry played a precise through ball to Greeny wholobbed the keeper from a full 20 yards, George added another soon after and Greeny went on to get his second hat-trick in a week. In the last minute after some hard work by Wesley the lads were awarded a corner, Ross sent a pinpoint corner into the box and Nathan C finished it with a well met header. Final score: Filby and Runham 8, Harleston Youth 4. MoM: Watty.

GORLESTON RANGERS U12B travelled to Freethorpe. Rangers needed to start well and were in a position to rotate the strike force and keep things fresh up front. After 14 minutes the deadlock was broken by Dan. A minute later Reece followed up with the second. Ryan entered the attack and soon got on the score sheet. Jack hit another fantastic strike and made it four, Ryan on the stroke of half-time completed a good half with his second of the match. Freethorpe did not stop battling and put some pressure on at the start of the second half. Tom scored coming back after injury and to complete the goals Caleb, with a great solo effort down the wing, cut inside and slotted home. Final score 7-0 to Rangers. There was some great performances, point blank save by George, great tackles by Chris and Matt, solid midfield with Lee and James, but man of the match was Harry who kept calm under pressure and passed the ball well. Next match, home to Mutford, 10 meet for 10.30am kick off.

HEMSBY HORNETS U10A welcomed Gorleston FCA on Sunday and went 1-0 down within 30 seconds. The ball was moved around nicely and someone was always there for a pass and they created some chances as Billy, Brennan and Sam all had decent efforts on goal. A good run and shot by Hadley went near and a screaming volley from Dominic went very close. At the other end there were good saves by Owen. Hornets equalised when a corner from Connor was played back and Dominic let fly from distance. Gorleston took the lead again when Brady was left trying to cover two very good forwards. A third just before half-time pushing for an equaliser. Second half, flowing football again created chances before a fierce free-kick by Dominic went just over. From a corner by Connor, Nathan powered a great header into the net only to see it ruled out as the ball wasn't placed correctly. It would have been a great first ever goal. Gorleston ended the scoring with a fourth. The team now have a sponsored man of the match trophy and thanks go to Chris Wright of Cover-Wright Decorators for supplying and presenting it to Hadley. Many thanks to Robin for excellently refereeing at the last minute.

Parents player of the match went to Harlen who made some quality saves when the game could have went either way. Training Saturday at 10.30am, next match away to Caister, noon ko.

SHRUBLANDS travelled to Reedham where they lost an enjoyable game 6-2. Shrubs had a mad 10 minutes which allowed Reedham to get on tops, which did not show how well Shrubs had played. Playing against the wind and uphill Shrubs defended the first half but looked good trying to keep the ball down and using the width well with Lee Orchinson having an excellent game on the left throughout. Reedham scored first but this was cancelled out by a deflected shot from Adam Baisley. Reedham scored again from a corner which went straight in. In the second half Shrubs looked really bright but could not finish. Reedham added a third after a mistake at the back. Rob Manning, who did not stop running all game, hit home a thunderbolt from the corner of the area. Reedham, hit a shot/pass which looped over Jason and into the back of the net then scored two well-taken goals. Gerald Walker was consistent and fair.

STALHAM YOUTH U12A played Aylsham U12 and battled hard throughout. They created some good chances in the first half but couldn't find the net. With the wind behind them in the second half, Stalham continued to pile the pressure on Aylsham who rarely made it into Stalham's half. Stalham got their deserved break with nine minutes remaining when William put in a nice corner in, which Jake passed across goal for Ryan to smash home. A minute later Matti on the wing put in a great cross for Adam to finish at the back post. Stalham got two more goals, which they deserved after the determination and work rate they had put in. Aiden put a superb ball through to Matti, who calmly slotted it past the keeper, then Matti put a nice cross over for Adam to get the touch it needed at back post. Final score Stalham 4, Aylsham 0. Player of the match Jake for a solid performance in the middle. Special mention also to Kieran for a great ever improving performance in defence and to Rylan for taking over in goal.
