Yarmouth are youth scene

Blundeston Magpies U12 scored their fastest goal of the season. Straight from the kick-off a trip led to a penalty, which James fired low past the keeper. Declan, Sam and Jamie all had chances before James scored his second. Bexley saved a Bohemians free-kick before Sam broke clear and scored the third. Sam and James both had shots saved before Matthew scored the final goal, stabbing the ball through the keeper's legs from close range following a corner. Man-of-the-match Syd playing in central defence was in the thick of the action. The second half saw Bexley making two good saves. Magpies Sam, Jamie, Declan, Matthew and Logan all had, a Sam shot rebounding off a far post and rolling along the line and out to safety. James took a turn in goal, making two very good saves to preserve the clean sheet.

BLUNDESTON MAGPIES U13 won 18-0 against Newton Flotman U13. Most of the Magpies retained their discipline and respect for the opposition. The stand out performances were from those that resisted the temptation to showboat. Dan, Chopper and Sam impressed. Magpies were delighted to welcome back Gibbsy who was excellent at bringing the ball out from left-back and scoring three quality goals. Man-of-the-match was Joe who performed as a predatory striker and was determined to score. Goals: Patch, Chopper, Stints, Cam, Dom, George (2), Gibbsy (3), Ally (4), Joe (4).

BOHEMIANS U9 visited Gorleston Rangers A. The Bohs created several chances and played some fantastic football. Every player gave 100 per cent and matched Gorleston in every department. Declan picked out some good passes in midfield and Leroy and Jack D made some excellent tackles. Connor was unlucky with a couple of good runs. Harrison, Cameron and Jack G were put under constant pressure at the back but all had a great game. Jamie and Brinley both made some great saves. The Bohs were unlucky to lose 3-0. MoM: Brinley.

BOHEMIANS GIRLS U12 travelled to top-of-the-league Brandon. They put the Brandon girls under pressure from the whistle. The girls held their own, giving Ella the chance to challenge the keeper in the 18th minute. Annie made an amazing tackle to deny Brandon the lead before half-time. In the second half Brandon found an unmarked player at the rear post who opened the scoring. A scrap in the Bohs' area resulted in a second for Brandon. Bohs created opportunities without success. Another disappointing loss when the performance deserved much more. PoM: Lauren.

BOHEMIANS U16 welcomed an improved, determined North Walsham. Bohs adopted the wrong attitude and need to give all teams respect. With four regular first team players missing, this was a good opportunity for all remaining players. At half-time Bohs were 2-1 up thanks to goals from Natalie and Lauren. NW replied through Carly. In the second half Bohs enjoyed nearly all the possession and shots rained in on the NW goal without success. With minutes to go NW could have snatched an unlikely draw when an effort went narrowly wide. A much better approach is expected Saturday when Bohs visit Aylsham. PoM: Marcie and Chelsea.

FC BRADWELL U11 entertained Blundeston Magpies with a very good all-round team effort. Some great passing and moving from Matthew and Sam freed Ben V to score Bradwell's first. Ben V and Sam combined for Aaron to score from the resulting cross. FC were three up when Aaron provided the cross for Sam to score. The Magpies' keeper made some outstanding saves. Second half Ben C set up Sam to chip the advancing keeper. Max slotted the ball to Matthew who scored his first goal for FC. Matthew beat several players and the advancing keeper to score his second. Supporting all the attacking play was Connor, Luis, Henry and Shaun who all had an exceptional game. Move of the game came from Reece who, from 30 yards, passed to the galloping Alex who reached the goal line and crossed for Reece to smash the ball home. Sam completed his tidy hat-trick and Lewis scored after a penetrating run. An own goal gave the Magpies a well-deserved goal. Team sponsor is Prajco Premier Supermarket of Bradwell and club sponsor Church Farm Country Inn. MoM: Matthew Woodhouse.

BREYDON U10 travelled to Caister with only seven players available. Caister scored an early goal, which produced a performance of true grit by the Breydon lads, especially as they had no subs. Caister went in three up by half-time. Breydon came out in the second half having made some positional changes but found the odds against them. Brave as they were, they found the shortage of players and the determination of the Caister lads was just too much for them and the final score was 10-0. Full credit to the Breydon team for never giving up. When they are back to full strength, the results will start to improve.

Caister u10B took on Breydon United in a Division Two clash and produced a high-class performance. From the first minute Caister forced their opponents back and it led to Jay scoring his first goal for the club. Will was brought down and smashed home the penalty and hard working Richie made it 3-0 at half-time. Within seconds of the restart more pressure forced Breydon into conceding an own goal. Logan, set up by Harry and Alex scored two good goals, and Alex helped himself to his ninth hat-trick of the season. Alfie rounded the scoring of finishing well inside the box. Final score: Caister U10B 10, Breydon United 0. MoM: Jay Hurren. Next match St Benets Wasps A away (kick-off 10.30am). Team (from): Thomas, Daniel, Harry, Will, Alfie, Harley, Richie, Reece, Jay, Logan, Alex.

Cobholm U7 entertained Kirkley & Pakefield C. Cobholm put the Kirkley defence under pressure from the off but from a few errors Kirkley soon put Cobholm in trouble. Players must listen to the team talks and follow it onto the pitch. Louie, this week's captain, saved a few good shots but found himself off his line too often. There was a nice partnership from Buddy and Bailey. Danielle and Toby did well when they came on with Toby close to finding the back of the net several times. Thom worked hard up and down the pitch and again was so unlucky in front of goal. In the first half Josh's concentration was good as he made important tackles and clearances. Buddy worked hard up and down the pitch. Bailey went on some good runs. Danielle in the second half had a much better performance. PoM: Buddy. Training 10am sharp on Saturday.

Cobholm U10B travelled to second division Loddon for a shield match and were beaten by a more experienced, older side. After a good start silly mistakes let Loddon take a four-goal lead. A good cross by Charlie and a neat touch by Taylor left Jamie with a difficult chance to pull a goal back which he finished off superbly. The second half started with Cobholm on top and Kieron C scored a second goal, but more basic mistakes let in Loddon for more goals. Callum made some good saves but was left exposed too many times. Cobholm tried players in different positions with the match lost. Man-of-the-match was Odin Lockwood. Training Saturday 10am sharp.

GORLESTON RANGERS U8B played against their fellow home side Gorleston Rangers U8D. GRB were down a few men including their goalie but played a good battling game throughout. There was lots of action at both ends and GRD kept the boys on their toes. GRB produced some good runs and some longer-range passes, showing improvements in their play. They just need to continue work on making better use of the whole pitch and marking up to their advantage. Man-of-the-match: Regan.

GORLESTON RANGERS U8C travelled to Harleston. Showing his goalkeeping skills from the off was Joshua. Jayden made light work of his tackles, whilst Harry never tired of the ball and showed his determination to keep in control. Tayler and Cam A worked hard both in defence and midfield. The second half saw Gorleston more determined than ever to keep possession. Tayler took over in goal, making some great saves. Cam B and Ben kept running from end-to-end, making some great passes and showing their commitment. MoM goes to the whole team. Captain: Joshua. Away kit Sponsors are The Bell Inn, St.Olaves.

GORLESTON RANGERS U9B were at home to Halesworth United. Their attack started at a fantastic pace. They scored a couple of early goals from great passing movements. The midfield and defence played with determination and intelligence. They followed up with two more really well-worked goals. The second half started a bit slower and Halesworth made it 4-1 up. Every Rangers player was committed to working hard and trying to play in the right way. They rounded off a complete and impressive performance with a deserved late goal to finish at 5-1. Goals: Jayden (2), George (2) and Joe. MoM: George.

Gorleston Rangers U10A turned in their best performance of the season in drawing 0-0 with a good Bungay Town team. The game went from end to end, with both defences playing very well. All players gave 100 per cent. Lewis C and Lewis D were welcomed and both had good games George is wished all the best with his new team. Finlay, Jake, Evan, Bailey, Bradley, Connor and Leon all can be pleased with their efforts, but MoM goes to Jack who drove the team forward.

Gorleston Rangers U10B played Waveney D who had beaten them before, and found themselves 3-0 up with goals from Thomas (2) and Adam. It was possibly the best Rangers have played all season. Then for some unknown reason they completely switched off in the second half. They stopped passing and moving, defended terribly against the long ball and let Waveney score four goals. Very disappointing from the management point of view. No game this week, but training as normal.

Gorleston Rangers U10C were away to Blundeston Magpies. Both teams started the game strongly and played some excellent football. Play was end to end, with both teams having good attempts on goal, but it was Ryan who scored for Rangers, then Adam. Rangers showed strength in the team by playing some excellent football, with great movement and speed, and the passing through out the team was excellent as was the defending and attacking. The Rangers team was Remi in goal, Haydn, Cody and Ollie in defence, Riley, Tyler, Ryan and Sonny in midfield and team captain Adam up front. Score: 2-0 to Rangers. Man-of-the-match: Ollie.

GORLESTON RANGERS U12A visited last season's league runners-up Kirkley & Pakefield C and came away with another impressive win from a solid display. Some excellent defending and also excellent handling by goalie Jordan from corners limited Kirkley to very few scoring chances. Rangers scored two goals in each half, one from another trademark free-kick by Connor, with a goal each from Matty, Spud and Ben G, resulting in a 4-0 victory. This weekend Rangers are at home to Kirkley & Pakefield A, meet at Southtown Common no later than 1.15pm in home kit.

Gorleston Rangers 13B entertained Waveney B in the shield. Both teams were below strength and Waveney could only muster 10 players. Waveney made it very difficult for Rangers. Before the break Rangers decided to change the formation and on 32 minutes James opened the scoring. The build-up saw very good football with Dan sending a cross-field pass to Caleb who put a perfectly-weighted ball across the box for James to tap in. The second half was scrappy from Rangers. Thanks to Adam for standing in as a keeper. Man-of-the-match was Matt. Next match is at Lynn Grove (ko 10.30am).

GORLESTON RANGERS U14A made hard work of defeating a very spirited Loddon team 1-0. After 30 minutes Rangers took advantage of their play. A mazy run down the right by Dan Deag ended with a cross for Declan Round to score with a half-volley. The visitors never allowed Rangers time to settle into their usual passing game, so a midfield battle ensued and on the odd occasion Loddon did break the Rangers defence stood firm. Late in the game Loddon were denied the equaliser by the woodwork and by a fantastic one-handed save by Charlie McLean. Rangers also found the Loddon keeper in good form. Man-of-the-match: Dan Deag. Training on Saturday is from 10.30am-noon at Gorleston Rec. Next match is against Kirkley & Pakefield (league) at the Mag, k0 tba. Any problems call Steve on 01493 669241.

Great Yarmouth Town youth hosted St Benets A and produced a very good team performance which blew the opposition away. Yarmouth were at full strength: Swanston, Haylock, Wright, Sawyer, Jex, Payne, Aizlewood, Wallis, Morrisey, Hunter, Parker, Rodwell and Sims. Yarmouth controlled the game throughout and scored at regular intervals in a commanding performance. Scorers: Morrisey (4), Aizlewood (3), Wallis (3), Payne (3), Hunter (2), Jex (2), Rodwell, Wright and Sims. Final Score: Great Yarmouth Town, 20, St Benets A 0. MoM: Whole team.

HEMSBY HORNETS U7A hosted Bungay Town B in a close and entertaining match. Hemsby were quick out of the blocks with Haydn scoring a great early goal. It then became a battle of the defences with both teams working hard but cancelling each other out in the final third of the pitch. Player of the match was awarded to William for his excellent defensive duties and great workrate. Next match away against Kirkley & Pakefield C at Walmer Road, Lowestoft. Kick-off 11.30am.

HEMSBY HORNETS U8A played Harleston Youth. Hemsby started quickly, with Ellis belting one in from distance, but again they dropped off the pace, letting Harleston back into the game. As most other games this season, the second half was a massive improvement, with Ellis completing his hat-trick and Luke grabbing his first of the season after good work from Matthew. A trip to Bungay this weekend. MoM: Ellis. Team: Aaron, Jamie, Matthew, Luke, Lewis, Kameron and Alfie.

Hemsby Hornets U9B entertained St Benets Wasps and attacked from the kick-off. It was one of those games where most of the play was in the middle of the park. Hemsby had a couple of chances which the St Benets keeper saved or went wide. The Hemsby defence stood strong when tested. The second half went the same way, both teams unable to find the breakthrough. All the Hemsby boys did their best. The Hemsby boys know what they have to do and should start believing in themselves. Sunday's game is at Halesworth Town (ko 11.45am).

ORMESBY LADS U7 are looking for players, boys or girls, to join a new team who are training in preparation for league football next season. Players must be under seven on August 31, 2011. Please contact club secretary, Phil on 01493 731788.

ORMESBY U11 entertained Swindell missing a key player with Sam unavailable. Swindell scored first then Carter equalised with an angled shot after a great run. Andrew pulled off two fantastic saves but Swindell scored twice more. Leon made a run and shot just wide. Ormesby played much better after the break. Jamie had a shot well saved and Jordan went close with a snap shot. Antonio won some crunching tackles and Alex made some important blocks. Ben got forward and scored a brilliant solo goal and Ralph got his first of the season from a tight angle after a strong run. Swindell added three more despite some first-class defending by Brandon and Victoria, who both had their best games of the season. PoM: Victoria. Next match v Long Stratton at Manor Road, ko 11am.
