BANBRIDGE Town U9s played another two games on Saturday at the Brownstown Development Centre with two wins against both opponents.
In the first game they started well with Tom King going close in the early stages and Harry Annett had a decent downward volley saved by the `keeper.
Toby Jones pulled off a great save with Alex Innocenzi and Josh Kerr solid in defence with a number of timely tackles. Joshua Noble showed good feet and shot wide with Town taking the lead after a great back heel by Tom King set up Taylor Hill who crashed his shot off the post into the net.
Daniel McGivern had a great run and shot saved as well while Finn Martin made a last ditch tackle to stop the opposition breaking away and threatening any change to the scoreline.
In the second game Banbridge again started well and maintained a great passing game throughout. Josh Kerr gave Banbridge the lead with an amazing long range effort which nestled in the top corner.
Taylor Hill also fired one over from long distance while Daniel McGivern had a great run and shot saved with Finn Martin also getting in on the act with a neat effort.
The opposition equalised to level the scores with Toby Jones then pulling off a super save diving high to his left hand side to parry one around the upright.
A great run and cross by Daniel McGivern allowed Josh Kerr to bundle it over the line for his second of the game . To
wn played neat football from the back to the front with Alex Innocenzi going close with a mazy run and shot. Harry Annett increased the lead with a close range volley and then the same player stretched the lead further with a firm close range strike in the dying stages from McGivern`s cross.
Overall a great outing again for the young lads who continue to work hard in training and on matchday. The rest of the players and coaches wish a speedy recovery to team mate Bobby Jones who suffered a broken arm during the week but still didn`t miss being present on Saturday.
TEAM: Toby Jones, Alex Innocenzi, Josh Kerr, Taylor Hill, Joshua Noble, Tom King, Harry Annett, Daniel McGivern, Finn Martin.
