Two out three ain’t bad

Gloucestershire Echo - - SPORT -

» FC LAKESIDE won two tro­phies but nar­rowly missed out on a treble suc­cess in the se­cond round of Chel­tenham Youth League Fi­nals.

In the Un­der-11 fi­nal, FC Lakeside Whites started re­ally well and stormed to a 2-0 lead, how­ever Charl­ton Rovers Blues hit back and slowly took con­trol, run­ning out 4-2 win­ners.

The Un­der-12 Lakeside Blues also got off to a flyer against Cin­der­ford Town as they scored three goals be­fore half time but Cin­der­ford pegged them back be­fore Lakeside’s fourth goal sealed the match.

Lakeside won their se­cond fi­nal in the Un­der-13 game against Ruardean Hill Rangers.

The For­est boys went in 2-1 up at half time but Lakeside then showed what they could do with some slick pass­ing foot­ball and scored three goals with­out re­ply to go 4-2 up.

Ruardean got a goal back, and then equalised right on the whis­tle to force a penalty shootout, which Lakeside won 5-4.

The Un­der-14 game was be­tween Gala Wil­ton and Abbeymead Rovers Chee­tahs.

Gala were Di­vi­sion One win­ners whilst Abbeymead were run­ners up in Di­vi­sion Two and the league dif­fer­ence did show as Gala won 5-0.

The last match of the day was Leck­hamp­ton Rovers v Tewkes­bury Town for the Un­der-18 tro­phy and the Tewkes­bury lads ran out 6-2 win­ners in a very high en­ergy and com­pet­i­tive match.
