The Youth Academy Under-13s put on a scintillating performance on Saturday in their NIBFA National League game against Maiden City. The all round team play was excellent against a very good technical side. The main difference in the teams was the incisive passing and finishing of the Sky Blues.
Timmy McClure will grab all the headlines following a five goal haul, however much credit must go to Joshua Balmer who assisted SIX of the goals. He put on an outstanding centre forward display and showed fantastic awareness in terms of seeing and creating chances. His fellow strike partner Oisin O'Mullan also showed great composure to grab himself two goals on the day and arguably could have had more as the keeper made hood saves from Balmer, Adam Millar and Billy Ewart.
City had a few chances themselves but found Ryan McGrath in goals in tip top form. Three saves of top quality to deny the hosts. Cammy McMullan also marshaled his defence very well.
Players of the Match: Timmy McClure and Joshua Balmer.
