U14s. With a full squad available, Charlbury cruised to an easy victory against a spirited Wroxton team. First half goals from Alfie, Tom W, Billy (2) and Tom Hart put the result beyond doubt quite early on, and the score line was extended to 8-0 by the end of the game, with Tom W , David and Billy adding further goals, kicking uphill, and Billy of course, completing his first hat-rick of the season.
On a sunny Saturday morning, the U9’s traveled to Deddington.
With a quick start from Charlbury, they found themselves 2 goals up within the first 5 minutes with goals courtesy of Robson.
All through the first half it was an end to end game with both sides playing some very entertaining football. Alfie and Bailey with some great defending and at the other end of the pitch some entertaining attacking play from Robson, Harvey & Oscar.
The second half started exactly the same as the first but with Deddington getting back into the game. The score went to 4-3 but some great attacking football played by Charlbury was 5-3 up with 5 minutes left. Deddington kept attacking but some great defending again from Alfie, Bailey & Maddoch with Ted behind them in goal (which I must say, he made some cracking saves all through the game). Then out of nowhere Deddington got the game back to 5-4 and with just seconds left the referee pointed to the spot and a penalty was given and Deddington stepped up and scored.
The game ended in a very exciting draw.. A very entertaining and hard fought game with both sides playing football in the right way.
The U11 girls played their match on Saturday morning away at a windy Witney. The game started at a frenetic pace with an early goal slotted home by Molly J following a corner by Molly W. The match ebbed and flowed with Witney putting the defence of Libby and Adelaide under constant pressure. Two more goals followed scored by Molly W. The game ended 6-3 to Witney Vikings but both sides playing some great football and was played in great spirits. A notable performance in midfield from Millie, and Fran again showed her attacking skills up front. Welcome to Grace, who made a strong debut for Charlbury Town.
The second match of the morning – played as a 9 a side friendly – allowed the girls more game time against a quality opposition. Molly W scored another cracking goal – her third of the morning – and the winner was put away, following a persistent run thorough the defence, by Adelaide. That winning goal and her strong defensive performance, earned Adelaide the player of the match trophy this week.
A frustrating local derby ended in a 2-1 loss to Chippy. The boys had to work hard for an hour with no substitutes and just came up short towards the end of the second half. On we go to the next game!
U15s No game.
U16s No game , therefore still unbeaten!
U16 Girls Charlbury 1-3 Grove
The U16 team suffered their first defeat of the year against a strong and well organised Grove team. With Gaby and Imi injured and Ella and Tiye away a number of girls were asked to play in different positions and we never really got going to the second half, at which time we were already 2-0 down. Chances came and went, with a goal being disallowed (no VAR at Enstone) , hitting the bar and missing one or two good chances, That said, Grove deserved credit for a solid performance and never looked like they would surrender their first half lead.
