It has been another successful week for our respective age groups with the Under 16s, Under 18s and Development Squad all in action during the past seven days.
On Saturday the U18s and U16s continue their impressive starts to the season, with both continuing their 100% record so far in their respective league competitions against local rivals Stevenage.
The U18s ran out 4-1 winners with Zack Nelson opening the scoring after just two minutes with a free-kick from the edge of the box. Millar Matthews-Lewis, Oliver Lynch and Archie Heron then completed the scoring.
The U16s bettered that score line by hitting half-a-dozen unanswered goals in a 6-0 victory which saw Matthew Takawira grab a hat-trick. Charlie Trustram, Max Scott and Jamie Odegah were also on the scoresheet.
The U18s followed this up with a friendly fixture at Cobham against Chelsea, where they took on an U17s Blues side on Tuesday afternoon. Two goals from second year apprentice Jake Burger, and one from U16s centre-back Jacob Vickers were enough to see Alan McCormack’s side come away with an impressive 3-2 victory.
Adrian Forbes’ U21 side were also in action this midweek as they hosted Fulham at The Brache, Daniel Idiakhoa and Josh Allen on target in a 2-2 draw, the latter from the penalty spot after the opening goalscorer had been fouled.
