Confident HUCKNALL SPORTS UNDER-15S BLACK moved to a point behind the leaders with a game in hand after their latest victory in the Notts Youth League’s Sunday First Division.

Sports brushed past lowly Netherfield Boys to the tune of 4-0, courtesy of goals from Adam Loydall (2), man-of-the-match Joe Humphreys and Jordan Berry.

UNBEATEN ROLLS-ROYCE LEISURE UNDER-16S missed the chance to go top of the Notts Youth League’s Saturday Second Division when failing to win for only the second time this season. Rolls were held to a 2-2 draw at West Bridgford Harriers, despite goals from Josh Brown and Tyler Sims and a man-of-the-match display by Bradley Hickman.

A HAT-trick by man-of-the-match Josh Pearson enabled free-scoring ROLLS-ROYCE LEISURE UNDER-15S to draw level with the leaders in the Saturday First Division of the Notts Youth League. Rolls battered Burton Joyce 7-1 with Adam Loydall (2), Mitchell Jackson and Jack Clark also on the scoresheet.

LEADERS LINBY RANGERS UNDER-15S edged past second-placed Cotgrave Colts 2-1 to tighten their grip on the Notts Youth League’s Sunday Second Division. Ryan Butler and Oliver Bradbury netted the goals.

TWO late goals by winger Jack Bradley sealed a 4-0 victory to keep HUCKNALL WARRIORS UNDER-13S top of the Young Elizabethan League’s Saturday Third Division. Warriors had gone in front with deflected strikes from Joe Gillan in the 17th minute and Curtis Rigley 20 minutes into the secopnd half, but they also owed a lot to excellent saves by goalkeeper David Hurry and a tireless performance by man-of-the-match George Blatherwick in midfield.

A FLUKEY goal three minutes from time robbed plucky HUCKNALL SPORTS UNDER-11S WHITE of a terrific 1-1 draw against top-of-the-table Priory Celtic Green in the Saturday Second Division of the Young Elizabethan League. Declan ‘Messi’ Jackson had given them an early lead and they should have added more goals and some superb defending by man-of-the-match Ciaran McBride kept Priory at bay after they had equalised against the run of play.
