YOUTH - Weekend youth round up - 11th, 12th March

Under 18’s show real bounce-back-ability

Salisbury under 18s took on New College in the league fixture at Bulford 3G, fresh from being knocked out of the cup last week to Forest Green Rovers which was always going to have an impact on this encounter. Salisbury started slowly and gave New College far too much respect and the visitors took full advantage and were soon 1 nil up. Salisbury still did not respond and New College could have been out of sight within 20 minutes. Kieran McHardy made some important saves and kept the whites in the game and as in any game goals change games. 

Salisbury finally sprung into life and attacked with purpose and drew level with a goal from Christos Papakonstantinou. Then Ryan Penny scored a second to put Salisbury into the lead. However New College replied with an excellent strike to leave the scores level at half time. 

Second half Richard Rendall changed formation to counter the effect of New College’s very impressive number 7, and this worked well and Salisbury dominated the game. Further goals came from Jim Ward scoring with arguably the goal of the season. Liam Greenough made a clever run to cause confusion in the New College defence, Ward looked up to see the Keeper of his line and lobbed him from 30 yards. Greenough then scored himself to put Salisbury 4 v 2 up. The White could have scored more and came close on quite a few occasions, 4 -2 the final score.  

Salisbury FC U16’s won 17 v 0. No match report has been submitted.  

Under 15’s have a Sunday to remember. League Champions and cup finalist all in one day

Following the under 12s from Saturday who made it into a Semi Final, Salisbury FC under 15s made it into the Final of the Tyro Trophy final. On a wet sticky pitch Salisbury adapted the better of teams, although it took a while to clinch lead, when Forden drove home from a rebounded corner. Nash came off the bench and used his pace and quick thinking to double the lead when he coolly slotting home. Wellow FC though refused to lie down and went close on several occasions and it wasn't until midway through the second half Salisbury scored the crucial 3rd goal. Some combination passing down the left between Simpson and Batty set up Tanner to slot past the keeper and put the game beyond the Wellow side. And then captain Waters added a fourth from the spot to wrap it all up. FT 4 v 1. Salisbury will face Hamble in the final. 

While the whites were busy on cup duty results elsewhere in the league results went the Radian sponsored U15s way meaning that without kicking a ball Salisbury were crowned league champions. Manager Ed Searle said “it is the great dedication of the boys who turn up every week to training and the way they have learned to adapt to a formation and playing style that the back room staff have drilled into them this season that have enabled the team to reap the rewards”.

Salisbury U13s Blacks Suffer the Cup Blues. 

The Blacks 15 game winning streak (all competitions) was halted today in the Tommy Traynor Trophy Semi Final. 

Eastleigh Youth were the hosts on a Soggy and overgrown Wide Lane sports grounds. The Blacks failed to adjust to the pitch throughout the 1st period (trying to stick to their usual short passing game) and Eastleigh capitalized through the clever deployment of the long ball up to their pacy powerful centre forward, who finished his two early chances well. This came as a shock to the Salisbury lads who have not been in this position all season. How would they respond? They started to turn it around but Eastleigh added a 3rd just before the HT break. It was going to be an uphill struggle for the Whites now.  

The Blacks found a rhythm after the break and their play improved greatly. Leo Penna rifled in a finish off the post from 20 yards to give the whites some hope. The Whites then dominated the rest of the match without getting the rub of the green (well more like sloppy brown than green). Whilst they were push for further goals to get back in the game they inevitably left openings at the back, eventually allowing Eastleigh a 4th to kill the contest.  

MOTM and Captain Matt Webb should be proud of his and his team’s performance. Playing Away against a team from leagues above for the 3rd time in this competition will be something the team can learn from and be proud of. The Blacks would like to wish Eastleigh Youth FC the best of luck in the Final.

Whites under 12’s come from behind to reach the league cup final 

Andover New Street 1-2 Salisbury FC  

Salisbury went to Andover knowing 1 more win would see them in final. And Salisbury played there socks off from start to finish after going 1-0 down through a mistake between Jack Weeks and Tyler Andrews, the Whites never gave up there spirit.  

Second half Salisbury were doing everything right apart from scoring. Until Rory Cameron passed a ball across the box for Valentin Daskalov to strike a thunderbolt of a shot that gave the keeper no chance. Before that crucial second goal Salisbury had made so many chance to win it from Dylan Beauchamp, Callum Wohler and Archie Ford. After his mistake in the first half, skipper Tyler Andrews came up for the corner where the ball dropped to his feet to toe poke it into the corner which saw the Whites go on to win the game. 

Huge credit to Andover New Street for giving us a tough, aggressive match. Salisbury will now play local rivals Alderbury in the final on 27th April at Andover New Street first team stadium.  

Man of the match was Matthew Robinson who put a solid performance from start to finish. The Blacks now have the aim of protecting their 100% league win record, and sealing promotion at their 1st attempt. 

Mini Soccer round up 

Salisbury U9's played Winchester Youth Blue today in two terrific games. The young whites started slowly and conceded some early goals. Despite a harsh penalty decision, they showed terrific character and grew into the game, and shaded the second half. The final game was very entertaining, with plenty of goals, and end to end football. Winchester were clinical and edged past us in the final few minutes. In difficult conditions, the boys all applied themselves brilliantly. Great effort boys. 

Salisbury FC U8's played an excellent game of football against Sarum youth today. Great performance from all the boys, nearing the end of the season but are still consistently proving their quality. MOTM Alfie Trollope, huge contribution going forwards scoring and creating goals.  

Saturday saw Salisbury FC U7’s make the log trip to Kings Worthy for a development game against Worthy Reds U7’s. The whites got off to a slow start but within 5 mins they settled really well making great passes and having passion of the football.  

As the game went on the white grew stronger and there football got better and better and created many many chances. The team worked very hard for each other all over the pitch and it was great to see how they are now all gelling really well and understanding each other's way of playing the game. 

As always when we play Worthy Reds the game was very competitive and played with a great spirit with every child enjoying just playing football. It was a great game and a real joy to watch and see how well the teams played, certainly one of the best games of the season. 

It was a tricky decision but Man of the match went to Harry Turner for putting in a great performance and showed great attitude towards the game. We would like to thank Worthy for hosting the game and for a very competitive and entertaining match.

YOUTH - the weekend round up 4th March

 Valiant Whites exit the cup with their heads held high

Salisbury under 18’s took on Forest Green Rovers in the semi-final of the South West counties cup on Saturday. The game started with some very good attacking play from both sides and it was obvious from the start that this was going to be a good match. FGR broke up some good play in the middle of the pitch by Ryan Penny and Christos Papakonstantinou and played the ball into a dangerous area inside the area and finished well to put FGR 1 nil up. Salisbury looked stunned and gave the ball away cheaply on the right hand side, the advancing FGR attacker crossed into the box and with the wind and an incredible amount of luck the ball sailed into the top corner. Now Salisbury had a mountain to climb. They pressed FGR all the way, first with Josh Sommerton and Jim Ward ripping FGR apart down the left and Ben Starr and Charlie Rayfield were also creating chances on the right. It was Rayfield who played a good ball into Ben Starr who beat his man and fired into the back of the net to get Salisbury back into the game, a question of offside perhaps about the goal but it stood. Then followed the talking point of the game. Salisbury were constantly attacking and FGR were conceding free kicks in dangerous areas time and time again. Salisbury worked the ball into the area again and again, eventually the ball fell to Louis Rendall who found space in the area to beat his man, but he was then brought down before he had a chance to pull the trigger. The only person that did not think that is was a penalty was the one that mattered, the ref. So the score remained 2 v 1 to FGR at half time.  

The second half saw the Gloucestershire outfit playing deeper to try and protect the lead they had. This forced Salisbury to try to break them down. The FGR back four play very well and the left and right backs got much tighter on the Salisbury wingers. Salisbury continued to pass the ball well and pushed FGR all the way. Christos Papakonstantinou fired in a shot that went inches over the bar, Chae Sykes put the ball into the net however was deemed to have fouled the keeper in the process. Then the chance of the game the ball fell to Ben Starr in the box who controlled it and passed to Chae Sykes for a tap in that would have taken the game to extra time but the opportunity was missed by the normally prolific striker. The Whites kept pressing to the end but the FGR defence held out for the win. A really good game with two very good teams playing some excellent football. We wish Wade and Forest Green Rovers all the best in the final. 

A game of two halves for the 14’s 

The under 14 JPL side less three major influential players travelled to Blandford to take on the AFC Bournemouth shadow academy. It was the cherries that came flying out of the blocks in the first quarter of the game. However both of their two goals in this period came on the break when the whites were pressing them back. For all of the host’s nice football the goals came the old fashioned way with long balls over the top. In the 2nd quarter it was Salisbury who were the better side and forced many half chances and corners. A through ball from Sam Butt put Ollie Mason through who got away from his man, and fired past the keeper to get Salisbury back in the game.  

The 3rd quarter got under way with the Whites again edging the game, but unable to carve out too many clear chances. The Bournemouth side where a constant threat though and eventually they found their way through despite another MOTM performance from on trial centre back Declan Green. A 3rd and a 4th goal for the Cherries made it 4 v 1 and there was no way back for the whites. With only one sub to call on due to last minute fall outs due to sickness and injuries to last week’s major attacking threats of Weir and Eagles, had those two been available the score may have been different. A word also for squad captain Alfie Hawke who failed a fitness test on Friday but still travelled to Blandford to support the team.

Lion plate Salisbury under 7's v Worthy Blue under 7's

Salisbury welcomed Worthy Blue as they met in the lion plate. It was a lovely start with Salisbury coming close early on with Stanley Goodridge-Reynolds just hitting wide from inside the box. Salisbury played very well as a team and displayed some organisation with Harry Turner taking control from defence and commanding the team to keep their shape and made some great runs down the wing and was able to get the ball into the box to find a team mate many occasions. There was some great battling in middle of the park by Maisie curtis and Taylor Dunn and an excellent performance by our goal keepers Christian Salisbury, Joesph Greenyer and Lucas Prescod-Togood. William Shardlow again managed to break through the opposition’s midfield and defence and created some great chances. 

Every players showed a lot of focus and support for their team mates as when they were sub there task was to watch their fellow team mate and see what they did well and to see if they could do the same and understand the position they were playing in. A great solid performance by the young whites with a lot structure and organisation on the pitch with some cracking creative play produced some excellent football. 

 

The team have come a long way since the star of the season and everyone is looking forward to exciting times ahead the these talented whites.

 

With the weather last weekend these are the only three fixtures this weekend that survived.
