U16s - Match Report

Towns U16s Off To A Flying Start

(Liz Greening 19/10/2020)

4    Congleton Town FC U16s
1    Weaverham Black

(Match Date: Sunday 18th October 2020)
Weaverham Black 1 v 4 Congleton Town Juniors U16

At last, after all the delays due to COVID, the Town’s U16s finally kicked off their first game of the season against Weaverham with a convincing 4-1 win.

The game started with both teams seeming to be evenly matched creating chances at both ends. But for some fine saves from stand in goalkeeper Matt Hart, the U16s could have been behind before the deadlock was finally broken by Jack Holt finishing confidently after off what was a superb passing move.

Louie Jones added the second with an amazing strike that left the goalkeeper helpless as the ball rifled in the top corner. Weaverham tried hard to get back into the game, constantly looking to feed their right winger who became increasingly frustrated, being called off side on several occasions whilst trying desperately to get away from the ever present and pacey Bobby Eckersley, but to no avail.

Weaverham managed to pull one back after half time, when an attempted clearance from a corner rebounded back into the goal. This was very hard on George Wassall and Max Allon who were outstanding at the Centre of Town’s Defence with Lyle Galbraith, Jono Clarke and Noah Zimmermann all looking very strong in defence.

The U16s response to conceding a goal was emphatic, Reuben Thornden, who won every 50-50 challenge throughout, and Bill Bryce Smith regained control of midfield releasing the ever dangerous Milo James to setup the equally dangerous Leo Willcock to tap in the third and it was Leo who turned provider 2 minutes later sliding a great pass in to Jack Holt who fired home the fourth from 12 yds.

Early days, but this was a thoroughly impressive performance all round from the Towns U16s.
