Daniels Given Lesson In Finishing

The youth team bowed out of this season’s FA Youth Cup at the hands of Matlock Town.

Andy Noble’s lads were given a lesson in goalscoring by their more experienced opponents.

Matlock took the lead after six minutes when a header at the far post was headed in by Declan Sorrell. After another few minutes, Daniels keeper Harry Stephenson palmed a shot from distance away for a corner. The corner was swung in and again the young keeper pulled saved the shot.

Matlock continued to press but the Daniels back line held firm and the Daniels goal was never really threatened.

With half hour gone, the visitors again had a shot from distance, but Stephenson was equal to it and parried the shot away from danger. A few minutes later, the visitors almost doubled their lead when a shot bounced off the crossbar.

With five minutes remaining in the first half, Matlock got their reward of a second goal. Ethan Knowles crossed the ball and Matt Coleman was on hand at the back post to slide in. There was still time for the visitors to get a third before half time when Sorrell broke free on the Daniels back line and smashed the ball past Stephenson in the Daniels goal.

At the start of the second half, the Daniels started brightly and within a few minutes of the got themselves a goal back. Some great build up play saw Dawid Gos hit a shot goal wards and after beating the keeper, but Nathan Clarke tried to get back to clear the effort but only managed to kick the ball into his own net.

The hopes that Stamford could mount a comeback were soon dashed when a long-range effort from Ethan Knowles was too strong for Stephenson. The young keeper got his hands to the effort but could not stop it going in.

Matlock got their fifth when a cross from the left was bundled in by Knowles and the rout was completed by substitute Lucas Brough whose free-kick from the right curled into the top corner of the goal just out of the reach of Stephenson.

Although the scoreline was harsh on the Daniels the lads many in the first year will learn from the experience and hopefully come back stronger for it.
