Youths result Mooncoin 2 Villa 0

Back to action today for our first encounter in the league with Villa this season. The lads were buzzing from the kick off and bossed the opening period with great authority. Dan Fewer and Lee Tracey were causing serious trouble to the visiting defence and we took the lead after 15 minutes when Dan beat the full back and pulled a great ball back towards the middle of the box and a retreating defender buried a header past his own keeper.
We continued to dominate the exchanges in all areas of the pitch and forced several free kicks in threathening positions. After being close with a few of these free kicks into the box the second goal came from another free from 30 yards when Dylan clipped it over the wall and left the keeper scrambling across his goal line only to see the ball evade his efforts .
Second half saw the visitors assert prolonged periods of dominance without really creating chances to reduce the lead. We lost a few players to injuries before the hour mark and massive credit to the lads for digging deep to turn in a superb last half hour .The defending was top class and the midfield created several breakaway chances that saw us a bit unlucky not to extend the lead due to some outstanding saves from the Villa keeper.
This was by far the best performance of the season by this squad with a lot of sore bodies after their hard work and efforts over the 90 minutes.
Big thanks to all who came along to support the lads in bitterly cold conditions 👍🏻
