Second half comeback not enough for the Sponne U15, who go down 7-2 against Silverstone UTC

Monday 1st October 2018

Hot on the heels of the away win over Guilsborough, came another fixture for the U15s, as they faced Silverstone UTC at Stowe School.

Another slow start for the Sponne side, and Silverstone made the most of it, scoring six goals in a one-sided first half. Not much else can be said here apart from that the second half went much better.

The second half saw a reshuffle as Ben Dimond joined the back line, and this change in approach made a huge difference as Sponne battled back in the second half.  We got on the scoresheet as Charlie Wood scored a neat finish from the edge of the box.

Silverstone pulled one back, against the run of play, but Sponne once again went on attack, after attack.  Much of play was out on the wings, with lots of space to run into.  A second Sponne goal, and a great strike for Alfie Harcombe as he buried a volley into the top left corner.

Winning the second half 2-1 was an excellent outcome, after a difficult first half.  All eyes now turn to the County Cup fixture on Wednesday, as we travel to NSB.
