Canterbury Triumph in Cup Final

Canterbury Youth secured a memorable victory in the Albert and Gill  Baines Memorial Cup Final at Ramsgate FC on Thursday 30th April.

Canterbury Youth Under 16’s: 2 – Dynamo Youth Under 16’s: 0

The  first half was tight affair, with Dynamo shading possession, while  Canterbury, driven on by Jonathan McAllister in midfield, had more  half-chances with Charlie Nicholson working hard up front.  The second  started in the same manner but gradually Canterbury began to exert  greater pressure and broke the deadlock with a Nicholson long shot  from a narrow angle on the right flank finding it’s way into the net.

From this point, Canterbury began to dominate, peppering the Dynamo  goal with shots and shutting out any opposition chances through their rock solid defence led by man of the match Mahel Koch and Joe Goldbacher.  The second goal game from a Paddy Jackaman long throw, flicked on by Adam Hogben and clinically dispatched through a rare right-foot finish by Jacob Williams.  An excellent second half and  consistent performances across the pitch guaranteed that Canterbury finished the season as cup winners.

Team: Pipkin, Jackaman, Goldbacher, Koch, Bennett, Brown, Foreman, Wardle, Hogben, McAllister, Mohan, Andrews, Williams, Nicholson, Eldridge.
