This Saturday the Youth Development League started.

Swalings U7s won their game by default due to a no show.

Swalings U9s lost 4-2. A Tayquan Harris brace was to little to late in the dying seconds of the game.

Swalings U11s lost 3-1. Our goal came from a wonder strike from Rhys Scott.

Swalings U16s drew 2-2. Swalings battled twice from behind, with both goals coming from Deniz Gould. Deniz slotted his first goal from the penalty spot and his second a 40 yard lob. Something Deniz seems to specialise in.

Best of luck next weekend boys

Match Reports from the weekend. Photos: The top is a mixture of the U16s and U11s, the bottom a mixture of the U7s and U11s.

This Saturday saw the Swalings U16s, U11s and U7s football teams in action. The U16s played Empire and Hatton. The games were 25 minutes long. Swalings, without their regular goal keeper, shipped 4 to Empire. Coach Duncan does feel with their regular goalkeeper it wouldn’t of been the case, however, that isn’t an excuse for dropping off the man with the ball when we should have been pressing them. In the second game, Swalings took the lead early when Lloyd Williams made a darting run down the right wing, cut in, then, 3 yards in from the bi line, chipped the keeper, a very cheeky effort indeed. Hatton pulled one back, again through lack of pressuring the player with the ball. Kajahri Browne, then scored a “worldy” and from 25 yards out, off balance, swung at the ball chipping the keeper. However it was lack of pressure again that let Hatton in to score again with 1 minute to go. The game, being a friendly, went to Penalties. Swalings were down 4-3 on the decisive penalty for Hatton, Donte Pereira, managed to spring to his left to put the ball over and wide. Elisah Emanuel then managed to seal the victory after Donte made another save.
The U7s and U11s played against newly formed team Patriots. The U7s went on a bit of a rampage, winning the game 12-0 with NINE goals coming from Tayquan “Tay” Harris. The other 3 came from Steven Raggutte, Nathan Cenac and Jai Sindhi. We had 5 children making “their debuts” with Ethan Camacho, 4, Elijah Cenac, Kai Spencer, both recently just turning 4, Axel and Adil Francis 6. It was a great display and great to see so many youngsters on both sides going full out and enjoying their football. Even after going 6-0 Patriots kept playing and enjoying the occasion, fantastic to see. Jai, who played keeper in the first half and Tyden Jones, 4, in the second half, didn’t have much to do, however when called upon both pulled off 2 fine saves. Jai getting low to save a shot with his feet in the first half, whilst in the second, Tyden, sprung like a springbok to snatch the ball from the Patriots players foot.
The U11s managed to come away 4-1 victors. In the first half the boys played exceptionally well, holding their defence lines and making keeping Patriots firmly in their own half. The back line of Zane Percival, Eustace Lynch, who coach Duncan votes man of the match for his performance, and Aidan Francis, cleared up everything, giving Ethan Stubbs very little to do. In fact so little, Ethan said to Duncan at half time, “I only had to move once and the ball was cleared before it came close!” Something the U16s need to learn! The first goal came from Antwon …. With a powerful run down the right and zipped into the bottom left corner. Swalings scored their second goal through Manav, the ball was cleared off the Patriots line, on the turn with his left foot, Manav span and spanked the ball into the left corner, tremendous effort with his weaker foot. The second goal shocked the Patriots into action and they quickly pulled one back. To many Swalings players went to tackle one defender, he cut across for the unmarked man to tuck home. However their revival didn’t last with Mikeal “Miko” White scoring a beautiful half volley half chip from 20 yards out. The fourth and Manvs second goal came with 5 minutes left to put the game to rest.
A fun weekend with lots of positives and lots to work on.
