Trio make County Cup Progress
Worcester City Youth teams warmed up for their upcoming JPL Elite League campaigns with victories in the County Cup.
The Under 14s beat Welland Juniors 3-0, whilst their older counterparts breezed past Kidderminster Harriers 6-0.
Despite dominating their cup clash, the Under 18s needed penalties to defeat Bromsgrove Sporting after the game finished 0-0 after normal time. City confidently netted all five of theirs after keeper Sean Dayus saved Sporting's first spot kick to help his side progress 5-3 in the shoot-out.
There were mixed results for City in two other cup competitions. Fielding players from Under 16 upwards, the Under 18s chalked up their second win in the Midlands Floodlit Youth League Cup with a resounding 5-0 at Rugby Borough - Jack Baker and Josh Schuck scoring their first goals for the older age group. Meanwhile City lost 2-1 to Redditch United in the Reserves League Trophy.
In JPL Development League action, a devastating first half display saw the Under 12s record an impressive 7-2 win at RTC Herefordshire. Without a regular goalkeeper, the Under 13s secured a 1-0 success at Solihull Academy thanks to a superb Jamie Hill free-kick.
The Under 10 boys and girls as well as the Under 11s also played some excellent passing football in their matches against Halas Hawks, Wyre Forest Phoenix and Kidderminster Harriers respectively.
The Under 18s travelled to Leicestershire to beat Brooke House College 2-1 in a friendly courtesy of goals by Matty Patrick-Rivers and Olly Berry.
