Youth Academy Summary: Saturday 18th February

It was another weekend full of ups and downs for our JPL sides as they returned to action at the weekend.

Starting with our U13 Boys and they showed real maturity to bounce back from a few disappointing weeks to win 4-2 against a strong Woking side. Goals came from Jude Powers, Hunter Caldwell and a brace from Antony Hayward.

Shout-outs also go to Santi Black, Malakai Suleimen and Fraser Davidson for putting in solid performances.

As for our U15 Boys, they also tasted victory at the weekend, beating Woking 8-2. A game full of dominant performances with good possession, they created chances with quality teamwork but also individual brilliance too. Zane Rayfield netted four whilst Kian Downey bagged a brace and Zak Lina also wrote his name on the score-sheet. However, a special mention to Ethan Wright who also netted twice, making his return after a third operation. Frankie Humphries also received praise after the game for his performance too.

Both our U16 Girls and U16 Boys lost at the weekend. Starting with the girls and it was a 4-1 defeat away at Ipswich whilst the boys were on the receiving end of a narrow 2-1 score-line against the table toppers. The Ravens did take an early lead through Feranmi Dada though who put in a stand-out performance, as did George Evans in midfield.

As ever, thank you to our sponsors Glemnet and Group LK for their continued support!
