DIVISION 1: Churchdown Panthers Whites 7-0 Leckhampton Rovers Lions Gala Wilton
Sunday 28th April 2019
What a fantastic way for this team to sign off. An empahtic 7-0 win to earn the crown of U16 Division 1 Champions. A brilliant end to the season, with some great wins.
We didn't play our best in the first half, but went in with the lead as Ethan Dunbar found the bottom corner with a free kick on 23 mins.
Once again, our start to the 2nd half was electric and we blew the opposition away early doors. 4 mins in and a long ball downfield from Alex Fulford, set Ethan Dunbar away between the 2 defenders and he finished the 1 on 1 well. 2 mins later, Kian Gardiner swang a great ball in from the left, behind the defence for Ethan Dunbar to crash home at the far stick, securing his FIRST hat-trick of the game. 4 mins later and a riochocheted ball forward was acrobatically flicked over the last defender by Ethan Dunbar, putting himself in behind to lob the keeper. 3 mins after that, Jon Whiting cut infield from the right and played a slide rule pass for Ethan Dunbar to finish well again.
Scoring slowed until the last 10. On 72 mins, Kye Brice set Josh Bird in behind the defence. Josh created space, but then passed back to Kye Brice for a tap in. And then in the last minute, Ethan Dunbar secured his 2nd hat-trick with a prod home, after a shot by Tyler Jones was parried by the keeper.
This has been a phenomenal end to the season. They deserve it. Proud of them all. CHAMPIONS!!!!
