Daventry Town U11s 0

Roade 5

Daventry started the game applying good pressure but with a lack of communication in defence Roade scored early. Roade started putting pressure on Daventry who found it hard to keep them out and were down by three goals at half time. The second-half saw Roade adding two more.

Man of the match went to Euan who worked well in defence.

Drayton Grange Blades U13s 0

Parklands Tigers 1

A good game to watch was ultimately settled with a scrappy goal that just evaded the outstretched hand of the Blades’ keeper who otherwise had a great game. The faultless effort and commitment from every Blades’ player was shown by man of the match Connor Keating who playing in an unaccustomed centre back role worked tirelessly, producing his best display of the season. Special mention also to Dylan Jones who was excellent.

Drayton Grange Diamonds U15 Girls’ 3

Corby S & L 1

Early in the first-half Corby caught Drayton off guard to go 1-0 up. From then on it was all Drayton with half a dozen shots at goal, but Drayton could not get the equaliser before half-time.

Five minutes into the second-half Drayton were more lively, after a quick throw in and a cross by Carly Lakey, Jade Reynolds found the back of the net. A high energy game with two great strikes from Carly Lakey put Drayton 3-1 ahead. Megan Roberts earned herself player of the match for consistency in defence.

Drayton Grange Panthers U16s 1 Billing United 0

This proved an exciting and close game between the top two teams in the league.

After five minutes Panthers were forced to change their keeper after he injured his ankle. Both teams created chances but neither could find the net.

In the second half Panthers started playing flowing football and Billing created chances but good defending and goalkeeping kept these to a minimum.

Panthers scored the only goal in the game in the last minute when Ryan Compston’s weighted pass to Jack Collins resulted in a penalty to Panthers following a foul from which Logan Roberts found the back of the net.

Man of the match went to Jordan Shingler and Ryan Fullard who were both excellent.

Woodford United Colts 4
