YOUTH FOOT­BALL

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

NICO Mar­tucci and Na­tal Er­mais both laid claim to the match-ball as West Dray­ton Ex­plor­ers’ U9 Pur­ples ran riot in vic­tory on Sun­day.

Mar­tucci and Er­mais both bagged hat-tricks in an 11-0 rout of BJ Leop­ard Yel­lows. Finn Mur­phy notched a brace with Rokas Bal­tru­saitis, Jay Fitzger­ald and Se­nav Mahdere also on tar­get.

The des­tiny of the ball is un­known, but Er­mais had the sat­is­fac­tion of beat­ing his fel­low hot-shot to the man of the match hon­ours.

Not to be out­done, the U11 Reds al­most matched the feat in an 11-1 win over Boyne Hill. Ethan Fo­ley, Josh Odell and Sa­muel Spasov all hit dou­bles with Ai­den Ed­wards, Joseph Davies, Rayyan Mur­ray and Thomas Hickey also on the score­sheet. Kian Ed­wards was named man of the match.

Char­lie Pe­nil led the way for the U9 Reds, hit­ting two in a 5-1 win over Maiden­head War­riors. Joe Ros­siter, Ethan Cupido and KJ Teague also scored, while Jamie McCarthy was man of the match.

The U9 Blues also hit a fist­ful of goals as they over­came BJ Leop­ard Whites 5-3, in­clud­ing two goals for Char­lie Smith and one each for Christo­pher Bur­ton and Ber­tie Ro­driguez-Owens.

The U7s’ 4-1 win came cour­tesy of dou­bles from player of the match Kennedy Kithinji and Daniel Mickale, while the U10s earned a point in a hard-fought goal­less draw with Lan­g­ley Hor­nets.

Joseph Brown led the way as Hare­field United U12s stretched their un­beaten run to five matches. Brown claimed a brace in a 5-0 home win over Chal­font Saints Lions with Ge­orge Scott, Wil­liam Davey and Travis Cowl­ing also scor­ing.

This win fol­lowed last week’s ex­cel­lent point at Taplow United, where Scott was again on tar­get and de­fender Har­vey Shailes scored his se­cond in three matches. The pur­ple patch has seen United’s young­sters rise to se­cond in the Thames Val­ley De­vel­op­ment League Divi­sion 2 ta­ble.

Sa­muel Trim bagged a brace while Pa­trick Evans also net­ted as Heathrow Youth U12s beat Lalaha 3-1. Zack Rogers was named man of the match. THE old­est 20-mile road race in the UK is re­turn­ing to Ruis­lip next month.

Hilling­don Ath­let­ics club are once again or­gan­is­ing the Finch­ley 20 Road Race ahead of the big day on Sun­day March 13.
