On: Wednesday, 08 Jan 2020
Venue: at Home

Result: Won 5 - 0

Goal Scorers: Jai Dhaliwal 2, Tom Dexter 1 Henry Kayll 1, Oliver Lancaster 1

Man of the Match: Jai Dhaliwal

Honourable mentions: Torin Fox-Howells for his strong midfield display

The three goals scored from corners, against larger opponents, underlined the desire of the boys to throw themselves at the game, and the ball, and had it not been for a lot of chopping-and-changing with substitutes the team would likely have scored many more.

The new-look Under 16-only-4th XI got the season off to a fine start with this win over John Lyon's 3rd XI. It was a comfortable first match, with seventeen boys all getting some good game time under their belts. The defence never looked in trouble, and some nice football was played throughout the team, with notably good link-up between Carlos Bakker-Noguer, Jamie Seddon and Felix Johnston.
