Several Worcester City Youth sides warmed up for winter with some glowing displays in cold, wet conditions on Saturday.
The Under 18 girls continue to make a splash in their league as they made it three wins from three games with a 3-0 triumph over Stratford Town, thanks to goals from Chloe Adams, Shannon Tilley and Becca Finch.
With seven regulars missing and several players in unfamiliar roles, the Reserves pulled off a fantastic victory as they came from behind to win 3-1 at Redditch United with a dominant midfield performance as Ethan Moran (2) and Myles Simpson were on the mark.
There was a deluge of goals for the Under 10s and Under 11s, who found the net 13 times between them in fixtures against Birmingham St George’s and Stoke RTC respectively, whilst two of City’s Under 18 teams each scored three times albeit with mixed fortunes.
Saturday’s 3-5 friendly defeat to Bath City followed an impressive 3-2 success earlier in the week for the Floodlit League side over Alvechurch. Matthew Patrick-Rivers was amongst the goalscorers in both games and he headed the winner against Alvechurch following an early predatory strike from Joel Owusu and a spectacular Hassan Shah volley.
In the JPL Cup, the scoreline certainly didn’t reflect the game as the Under 12s enjoyed plenty of possession and created lots of chances in a 2-5 defeat to WBA Development Academy. Having been given a bye in their competition, City’s U13s travelled to Coventry Sky Blues for a friendly that ended in a 4-2 win for the hosts.
