Warrington 13 Royton 1 (12 & u) 15th June

Warrington’s fast developing 12 & under team took on Royton at Great Sankey playing 6 aside but in full length pitch. Warrington attacked the deep end in the first quarter and had several chances to score Dom Richards was first to score for Warrington and just before the end of the quarter Ben Dailey added a second. Warrington led 2-0 at the end of the quarter but we could have had many more goals. In the second quarter Warrington defended the deep and had some difficulty attacking the shallow end as do most teams. Dan Farini managed to score and despite chances at either end no further goals were scored. Warrington recognised they had time on the break to give the goal keeper some fakes before shooting which should cause the Royton goal keeper some problems. Ben Dailey was unstoppable in the third quarter although Molly Ashton who gets better every game scored first. Between the pair they scored six goals in this quarter, four from Ben and two from Molly Ashton. I must say at this point that our 12 & under team are just that a great team with some great link up play and a lot of work going on in defence to confine Royton to one goal in three quarters. Luke Atkinson completely dominated the goal area and on many occasions judged carefully when to come off his line to pull the ball from the Royton player bearing down on our goal. The fourth quarter saw more great team work as Warrington scored four more goals Ben Dailey scoring his sixth goal, Molly Ashton scoring her third goal, and Dom Richards and Jake Williams also scoring. Warrington’s most improved player was Connor Lynch who has worked hard at swimming training over recent weeks which has significantly improved his game. The final score 13-1 a great result from an excellent Warrington Team.

Team included Luke Atkinson GK, Connor Lynch, Ben Dailey (6), Molly Ashton (3), Dom Richards(2), Rebecca Pritchard, Jake Williams (1), Dan Farini (1), Katy Bowater.
