Monkton Youth FC Under 16s: 1 – Canterbury Youth FC Under 16s: 8
Canterbury won in the first round of the Under 16s cup with a convincing win over Monkton. Played on a narrow pitch, Canterbury dominated possession for the majority of the match but were made to work hard for their goals. Jonathan McAllister slid in for the first from a corner, only for Monkton to equalise from a long through ball.
Canterbury’s advantage was soon restored though with a hatrick of goals from man of the match Charlie Nicholson (a penalty, a close range finish and a spectacular long shot). Following half-time further goals were scored with a thumping header from Tommy Warren, another Nicholson shot, a deft lob by Brandon Wardle and a neat finish from Seamus Mohan.
A good start to Canterbury’s cup campaign.
Squad: Jay, Paddy, Mahel, Tommy, JJ, Adam, Jonathan, Brandon, Seamus, Charlie, Jack, Joe, William
