Visiting Norweigan Under 17 team Fossum IF proved to be superior both physically and technically to a Crusaders Strikers team who battled throughout. Fossum started the game well, with some slick passing and it was no surprise that they led 2-0 at half-time with two well taken goals. A determined performance by Crusaders and in particular captain Taylor Wright kept the visitors at bay for a time in the second half, before Fossumm ran out deserved 5-0 winners.
Undoubtably Fossum are a very talented side and put together with their athletic ability, they will pose quite a challenge to NI's successful International U17 squad when they meet on Sunday at the Dub.
Earlier in the day Fossum trained under a Norweigan Flag at Greenisland and enjoyed some of the club's hospitality.
Tomorrow ( Saturday) another Fossum select will take on Lisburn Ladies at Greenisland.
