Under 16 Boys Friendly vs Newcastle College - Match Report


Staffordshire U16 Boys 0 Newcastle College 0

On a blustery night at Stafford Town, both teams played out an entertaining and competitive friendly, which despite finishing goalless saw numerous near misses for both sides. Staffs Captain Sol Ashworth saw his first half free-kick hit the post and late on James Plant almost struck the winner forcing a good save from the visiting keeper. Newcastle also went close and were denied a goal when Staffs keeper George Lenton pulled off a fine save.

The game gave the Staffordshire coaches a final look before deciding on the County squad for the coming season.

The squad will be posted on here later this week.

The members of last season’s trophy winning squad were also finally presented their medals and the Under 15 Midland Counties Trophy for the 2019-2020 season. Having also been Champions at Under 14, the challenge now is to do the treble and win the Under 16 title as well.
