We had a good turn out for the daytime training on Wednesday 17th February both for the under12s and the older group. It was nice to have reasonable weather for once !
On Friday 19th February Stradbroke Youth FC had its first game when we visited Sporting 87 in Bury, for an under 13 match.
Due to their usual pitch being waterlogged we had to move to a huge Astroturf pitch which was fantastic to play on. With both sides “starting out” as new teams it was played as four twenty minute games and we were very pleased with all the performances of our players who hardly put a foot wrong. Overall we ended up winning 7-1 against a good team and in a very friendly game. Good football from both teams and not a single foul in the whole match; well done to the players and thanks for the excellent travelling support from our “crowd”.
Our team was Ben Evans-Hendrick, Tom Hargrave, Aaran Pleasance, Lewis Cutts, James and Anthony Redwood, Luke Mayhew, Ronnie and Ritchie Courtney, Jack Heydon, Alex Lawrence, Josh Sach and Jack Melton.
