U17's through to Harrogate U18 Styan Cup Semi-Final
By Caren Smith
0-2 AWAY win puts Silsden U17 Feyenoord first team through to Cup semi finals
Beckwithshaw Sunday 7th April 2019.
An early start for Silsden U17 Feyenoord taking them AWAY to Beckwithshaw Saints to play the U17 Bulls with a 9:30am KO in the Quarter Final of the Harrogate & District U17&U18 Styan Cup. Silsden knocked out a-listers Tadcaster Magnets U17 in an earlier round with a 3-6 away win. Sunday's grass pitch could have been better (considering neighbouring proximity to Harrogate's treasure RHS Garden Harlow Carr) but the boys dug in with a solid performance.
Luke Latham assisted Joel Phillip score a cracking first goal for Silsden in the first half and Olivier Tetteroo-Smith (also Captain) assisted Scott Taylor deliver a well fought second goal by full time. Silsden's MoM went to George Gledhill for great defending, depriving the Bulls a comeback. A solid performance by Oliver Nash too and other team regulars didn't give the Bulls any spare change. James Walker joined the squad again after injury and a 0-2 WIN takes the boys through to the Styan Cup Semi Final (date TBC) where they'll play away against Nidd United or Wigton Moor United.
Team Feyenoord will play the Bulls away again next Sunday 14th April in a penultimate league game where they're guaranteed Harrogate & District league runners up and compete in the Harrogate & District U17 Cup Final on May 12th when they'll take on Pool United. The boys are having a fantastic season and also look forward to taking part in the Blackpool International Tournament during Easter. Well done team!
