Match Report

U17 Yellows keep winning run going in Breezy conditions!!


A noon ko saw Foundation of light as our opponents. A team we played first this season.

With Sam and Josh injured, and Joe Ponente away the team was shuffled today.

The conditions were poor with a strong wind going against us first half. However, two fine goals, the first after terrific wing play from Liam Paxton found Evan Peareth who shot low left footed to beat the keeper. The second came 5 minutes later after an Owen Brearton corner was headed well by Liam Paxton past the keeper. We got caught on the break however and Foundation pulled a goal back.

Half time

Cleveland Hall 2-1 Foundation of Light


Second half and with the wind and sun behind us, we scored some great goals. Skipper Alan Thomson heading a Jake Howard corner. Foundation however were awarded a penalty to make it 3-2.

 The home side dominated and a perfectly timed Evan Peareth pass found Owen Brearton to score, and Evan again found Jake Howard who chipped the keeper from close range.

The scoring was completed as Goalkeeper James used the wind and found Owen who scored his second under the keeper.

We could and should have had more, Fin Gibson going close, Owen hitting the bar, and Matthew Pendleton forcing a good long range save.

Final score

Cleveland hall 6-2 Foundation of Light

Difficult conditions today and it was hard to get the ball flowing, having said that we coped well, and had many chances.


Man, of the match was Liam Paxton. First half especially, some great runs and skill a goal and an assist. Well done.

 Thanks to everyone for helping today.

Next game away to Durham city juniors.
