Arnold Town U19 1-3 Southwell City

North Mids U19 League Div 2 - venue Eagle Valley

What a belter of a game. Southwell have a great crop of youngsters who all seem comfortable on the ball, and aren't afraid to run at defences. Skipper Reece Self is already in Newark Town's first team - looks a real gem and I reckon Newark will find it hard to hold onto this talented young man!!

Arnold's team was mainly last years U16's - and although they defended  resolutely  at times, they allowed their opposition far too much time and space and were made to pay. The building blocks are there though, and I will be watching their development with interest.

Despite going a goal down in the 6th minute, failing to clear and allowing MO MOHAMMED to fire home from 6 yards, they went on to batter the Arnold defence throughout the rest of the first half - the only problem was they couldn't quite find that killer touch in front of goal.
H-T 0-1

On the hour mark, CAMERON BLACKBURN scored City's equaliser their excellent play deserved, then seven minutes later they went ahead through AARON BURNS as their unrelenting pressure finally paid off. They sealed the points with another well taken goal from OWEN ROBERTS in the 86th minute.
