FRIENDLY: Abbeymead Rovers Spitfires U16 0-5 Churchdown Panthers Whites
Friday 1st September 2019
For a first run out of the season, there was some really good football on show this evening. A good work rate, good transition and a scoreline to reflect.
The only goal of the first half came on 14 minutes. Tom Whiteside set Kye Dean away on the right. Kye cut the ball back across the box for Ed Leech to finish.
It took until the 57th minute to get a second. A long ball from Alex Fulford at the back, was flicked on to Kye Dean. Kye turned and used his pace to drive in on goal, firing across the keeper. The third came 3 minutes later. Cameron Thornton fed out to Kian Gardiner wide left. Kian accelerated on the wing and crossed to Kye Dean at the back post to finish.
On 75 minutes, Kye Dean cut the ball back from the right, to Harry Staddon more central. Harry beat one then hit the best shot of the game into the far corner. Then with a couple of minutes left, it was again Cameron Thornton setting Kian Gardiner free on the left and a cross to the back post for Kye Dean to score number 5 and complete his hat trick.
A great start to the season, and much to build on ahead of the league start.
