Under 14's YEL Division 4
Bottesford 0-2 West Bridgford Corinthians
Our first ever game against West Bridgford Corinthians ended in a 2-0 defeat this morning. Bottesford started brightly, playing some great football but went behind to a 3rd minute long range effort from WB. Undeterred by this early set back Bottesford continued to take the game to WB to try to force an equaliser.
Bottesford played some great football in the first half but just couldn't get the ball in to the net.
In the second half, Bottesford again started brightly and created a number of chances but could not score. Cameron Levey struck a great shot from out wide that the keeper tipped over the bar and had a half volley pushed round the post too. Harrison Whitt went close with a one on one, then a curling freekick and James Dobney pounced on the rebound but again the keeper saved. Against the run of play, 5 minutes from time WB broke forward and scored another fine goal from distance, to seal victory.
A great, and much improved, performance by Bottesford U14's in what was a very even game throughout. Special mentions today for Joe Johnson who was excellent as stand in keeper, and Fynn Purnell who was fantastic at stand in left back.
