Yarlet School | U11 B TEAM V DENSTONE


Fixtures on 2nd December Home 002

Yarlet started the game very energetically with Charlie Capewell, Noah Beeston and Victor Camara-Ruiz all having shots on goal and looking very dangerous in attack.


The hard-working Oliver Heath also had a shot well saved early on in the game and it was Yarlet who held the upper hand early on in the exchanges with Romi Peck looking solid in defence.

Denstone were not for lying down though and had several very good chances themselves to open the scoring. However, they were faced with Aaron Paris-Stickland who was in inspired form and produced several fine saves and Joseph Thorpe, whose well-timed challenge late in the half stifled their attack on our goal.

Despite plenty of goal-mouth action and very good chances for both sides the first goal fell to Denstone when Romi Peck was pressured into putting the ball past his own goalkeeper and, at the interval, it was Yarlet who were trailing 1-0.

The second half began and both sides were looking to score from the off. Oliver Heath had a shot strike their crossbar and Noah Beeston also went close as Yarlet desperately sought an equaliser.

This came in splendid fashion when Charlie Capewell controlled the ball 20 yards out and expertly chipped a shot into the top far corner of the Denstone net leaving their goal keeper floundering at thin air and scoring a goal that Lionel Messi himself would have been proud of.

Yarlet seemed to gain confidence from this piece of footballing artistry and immediately went in front when Oliver Heath's shot found the back of the net to make it 2-1.

Romi Peck was redeeming himself in defence with some excellent tackles and Noah Beeston was also looking very dangerous on the left wing in attack. Despite their best efforts Denstone couldn't get an equaliser and it was in fact Yarlet who scored a third after a quick break out with a right foot shot from the hard-working Alan McNulty to end the game in a 3-1 victory for Yarlet.

To come from behind in the fashion that Yarlet did and run out emphatic winners showed great commitment and skill throughout the squad who all worked very hard for each other.
