Millhouses Juniors U9s 2 Crosspool Juniors U9s 3 – match report by Sam Wilde

A special report by Sam Wilde covering this morning’s action.

Millhouses Juniors U9s 2 Crosspool Juniors U9s 3

Crosspool Juniors Under 9s secured a narrow aggregate victory away to local rivals Millhouses Juniors to move into the top three of division V.

In the first game, Millhouses took the lead during the first half with a goal on the break. Crosspool went close to equalising through Taylor Hill after a good team move. Joe Reilly also forced a fine save from the Millhouses keeper. In the second half a last ditch Matthew Johnson tackle kept the score at 1-0 before Taylor Hill equalised. A Joe Reilly header hit the bar late on, but it finished all square.

Going into the second game at 1-1, Crosspool took a first half lead through Alex Darke. First time captain Jon Wilde made a good recovery tackle and clearance. Millhouses equalised in the second half only for Crosspool to respond immediately with a powerful finish from Damon. A hectic finale saw chances at both ends but Crosspool stood firm to come out on top.

Crosspool’s final league game of 2012 sees them take on Manton Athletic on Sunday 4 December at home at the C.D.Y.S.T.

Big week starts with defeat for Countrymen

Despite taking a first half lead through Martin Brissett, Hallam FC’s week of three home games began on Saturday with a 4-1 defeat to Lincoln Moorlands Railway.

The Countrymen’s next outing is the derby match against Dinnington Town tonight at Sandygate, who are just two places above them in the league.

As the Crosspool club’s Twitter account mentions, Sandygate is the place to be to see lots of goals: there have been 25 in their last five home games. Unfortunately, only three have been for Hallam!
