Tudor Grange U12s
The first half was a tightly contested affair, with both teams showing great desire and work rate without settling into controlled football. There were flashes of excellence, with one of these being when Tudor Grange’s Elliot Harris beat the high line of Lode Heath to go through on goal and score the opening goal. Lode Heath hung on and eventually began to get a foothold in the game. Zak Parsons then beat a number of players on the left hand side of the box, before lashing the ball across the goal and into the corner of the net. The scores were all even at half time with every thing to play for.The second half followed a similar pattern, with both teams giving their all, trying to play football when in possession. The whole of second half was a tightly contested affair, where one goal was always going to win it either side. Tudor Grange's Alastair Manson scored the decisive goal mid way through the second half and although Lode Heath fought hard right until the final whistle they couldn’t find the elusive equaliser.

U13 Federation Trophy: Park Hall (Soihull SFA) 3 v Priory (KNSB SFA) 1
This proved to be a very entertaining final with both sides playing good football. In the end, Park Hall fully deserved the victory, applying pace, power and clinical finishing. Priory started the better of the two sides, with some swift passing but the Park Hall defence stood strong and slowly started to assert themselves on the game. Kaine Hayden managed to beat the offside trap to open the scoring for Park Hall from a narrow angle. A further goal from Jack Showering put Park Hall in a dominate position at half time. The second half continued in the same fashion and Park Hall added a third after the Priory defence got caught out by a long ball and Thomas Faux managed to squeeze his shot into the far corner. Mikes Boone, who had an outstanding game in the centre of midfield, was extremely unlucky not to hit a fourth goal when his shot hit the post? Priory to their credit continued to complete and were rewarded when Szehm Whyte -Hall scored a well taken consolation goal.
