Match Reports March 19th & 20th 2016
U7s played against Collingham, winning two games and losing one. We scored some excellent goals and played well in all three matches.
U10s played New Park Bulldogs. We only had 7 players so it was hard work. The boys played brilliantly and pulled off 2 wins, some really good team football and some cracking goals.
Under 11s Girls
U11 girls won against Goole Town in a very competitive league match. I thought we edged it as the girls played very well and scored the winner with 3 minutes to go. A much changed team then played in the friendly and drew but we created lots of chances. In both games the girls took lots of shots, which was pleasing as they had been shot shy in previous matches.
On Saturday U11s played a 9 a side friendly against a Martin House League development team. It was a comfortable win and a good display given that some of the players were competing in this format for the forst or second time.
Sunday saw us return to the regular 7 a side league format. We recorded two wins, a draw and a defeat against a fast Ilkley side.
U12s lost 6-3 to Harrogate Railway in a refreshingly spirited performance. At one stage we were 4-1 down, clawed it back to 4-3 but then conceded two very soft goals. We also fielded a stand in keeper, so certainly an improvement on recent outings.
Under 13s Boys
U13s lost 1 -3 at home to Harrogate Railway, one of our promotion rivals. We were far too open and conceded a goal from their goal kick - a pass back to the keeper was charged down by their striker. At the other end we had shots cleared off the line, hit the woodwork and missed when it looked easier to score.
U16s went out of the Maddison Cup at the semi-final stage but played well against a strong Harrogate Railway team who sit top of the Garforth U16s League. Playing up the slope in the first half, Deighton played well but conceded two similar goals from through balls that Railway strikers were able to clip over the KDR keeper. Thereafter, Deighton held on until the very last minute of the 40 when Railway scored from the penalty spot after a coming together in the area.
However, in the second half KDR got the goal they deserved when a perfectly flighted free kick from the half way line by Sam Monaghan was knocked on by Alex Diggle for James O'Sullivan to score from close range. Railway scored the final goal of the game following a break down the Deighton left. A 1-4 defeat but a very creditable performance.
U17s won 3-0 away at Ilkley Pumas on a poor pitch against weak opposition.
