City 1 Somerset 2


City welcomed NS on a fine footballing day at Court Place Farm .

The match started at a very high pace with both teams getting pressure on the ball very quickly therefore stifling any kind of flow to the game .

Both sides tried to get the ball down and play when allowed and the first breakthrough came from a nice move when Mekhi Thomas scrapped to win a ball in midfield - Shane H picked the ball up and put a nicely weighted ball into Mekhai Grant to finish clinically . 1-0 City .

The match continued at a very high pace showing why the JPL is the stepping stone for boys who want to push on to the next level .

The next chance fell to an open Will Armitage who did not hesitate when space opened up and chipped the City GK to make it 1-1 .

The match moved into overdrive as both teams pressed and hustled for every loose ball .

In the fourth quarter the decider came from a poorly defended corner where Will Armitage nodded a simple header from very close range to make it 2-1 .

Well done to both sets of lads on an extremely high tempo match played in the right spirit .
