After a two week break, Leek Town U9’s were back in action with a local derby against Leek Csob Vipers at Birchall.
It was Leek Town who started brightly in opening stages and should have taken the lead with Harry Bond setting up Josh Brown but poor control let him down with the goal beckoning. Then it was Bond again who was through on goal but the striker took too long to pull the trigger and the Vipers goalkeeper did his job well.
As the half wore on, the Vipers started to get a hold on the game with good football and passing which started to cause problems on the Leek Town defence. Jacob Cumberbatch was then certainly the busier goalkeeper and Leek Town can count themselves fortunate to be going in at half time level with the Vipers scoring but the referee ruling it out!
Half time – Leek Town U9’s 0 Leek Csob Vipers 0.
Second half saw the Vipers taking control of the match with Leek struggling to match their opposition and it came to no surprise when Vipers took the lead. Though Leek Town nearly got back into the match with a Dlyan Tweats shot hitting the cross bar. That was pretty much it regarding Leek Town’s chances on goal.
After it was one way traffic as Leek Town could not contain a well, organised Csob team who added a further five goals to wrap this game up.
