The future continues to look bright - City youngsters step up to the plate
Worcester City Youth’s progression pathway continues to reap dividends as younger players make the step up in more senior sides.
The Reserves fielding only one player over 18 notched a convincing 5-1 win over Uttoxeter Town with a brace from Riley Keasey – the first a spectacular overhead kick – and further strikes from Ethan Moran, Myles Simpson and Emils Fedetovs.
The Under 18s side made up mostly of players aged only 16 recorded an impressive 4-1 victory over fierce rivals Stourbridge. Two goals in the final quarter from Tom Griffin and Tom Mills adding to earlier efforts from Josh Schuck and Curtis Turner in a rain-soaked encounter. Ensuring a double for City were the Under 10s who also overcame The Glassboys.
There were convincing wins for the Under 14s and Under 15s, who defeated Stoke RTC and Birmingham St George’s 6-0 and 11-0 respectively. A resounding performance by the Under 12s too, whose possession and slick passing saw off Kidderminster Harriers 8-1.
The Under 11s battled with Rushall Olympic, whilst the Under 10 Girls found the net twice and played some superb attacking football at times during their first-ever away match at Catshill Wildcats.
As part of the NERF Junior Premier League’s futsal development programme, the Under 13s enjoyed their first taste of the fast five-a-side game when they travelled to Gloucester to play successive matches against Evesham United and Kidderminster Harriers.
