FAYC; Welwyn Garden City U18s 9-0 Buckingham Athletic U18s

Welwyn Garden City U18 – 9

Buckingham Athletic U18 – 0

Buckingham Athletic U18’s were blown away on Thursday night by a rampant Welwyn Garden City side to end their journey in this season’s FA Youth Cup, in a fairly one sided game saw those in blue run ragged time after time and thoroughly demoralised within the opening fifteen minutes of the second half. Some substitutions stemmed the flow of attacks for the final stages of the game, but had it not been for some good saves, clearances off the line and the woodwork the scoreline would have been much greater. This City side could have a good run in this competition if they play like this in every round, some clearly talented lads in their group who are surely destined for long careers in the game.

An early free kick for the home side some twenty-five yards from goal saw Sam Willis step up and show his sides intentions of going for goal, his low effort forcing Athletic keeper Hayden Coombs down to his left to push away, moments later a similar scenario saw the same City defender curl around the post. The hosts continued to take the game to their guests and a break down their left with Gustavo Pereira saw him get away from his marker, advancing towards the area he went to cross to Kevin Maresi in the middle but Luke McEvaddy slid in to block for a corner just at the last minute.

Buckingham won a free kick on twenty minutes and a looping cross saw Cassius Brookes climb with two defenders on him, he got his head to the ball but could only help it wide for a goal kick. The home side then took the lead just two minutes later, gaining possession in midfield the ball was fed out to Billy Hodgkins who found Maresi in front of goal who could not miss. It was very soon two when a long lump upfield by the home keeper Lamin Bandura saw a flick on in midfield and racing away Hodgkins smashed into the top corner from distance.

Pereira then thought he had scored when beating Coombs to a through ball, his deft touch heading for goal until Shafat Huq covered across to thump away to safety, but on the stroke of half time the third goal did arrive when a cross was headed up into the dark skies by a Buckingham defender and Hodgkins pounced as it landed at his feet to sweep home. H/T: 3-0

Any thoughts of a comeback were firmly quashed within minutes of the restart, as Welwyn ran riot amongst the shell shocked masses of blue. Within seconds of the whistle skipper Tashae Andale-Gibbons slipped a perfect pass through the away backline for Pereira to attack but was denied by a quick thinking Coombs who dived bravely at his feet to smoother. They next attack saw the hosts score their fourth after Athletic surrendered possession in midfield & Jaden Philidene went on a mazy run, evading several challenges he smashed home despite Coombs getting a hand to the shot.

Athletic defence had a busy night

On fifty minutes it was five, Maresi turning provider this time from the right as he squared into the box and with two City shirts in the middle it was left to Pereira to get on the scoresheet. Coree Palfrey made it six soon after when a free kick seemed to be harmlessly rolling away but a City player got to the byline to retrieve and cross, Pereira got his head on it and the ball came back off the post and hesitation in the Buckingham defence allowed Palfrey to pick up and drive past Coombs.

By this point the visitors had surrendered and had no response to their dominant hosts, and Welwyn duly made it seven on the hour mark when again the Athletic defence lost the ball trying to play out from the back, Philidene pressured to take the ball away and skipped over several challenges before rounding Coombs and slotting into the empty net. Substitute Elton Anning had a rare chance when the home defence gave him the ball twenty yards out, his fierce drive pushed away by Bandura for a corner.

The respite was brief, straight up the opposite end Riyaadh Miah was booked for a challenge in his own box where a penalty was awarded to the home side, Andale-Gibbons tried to be clever with a chip from twelve yards but only managed to clear the crossbar. It wasn’t long however until the eighth goal did arrive, a free kick into the Athletic box saw an initial shot saved, a follow up blocked, a third shot saved again but with no one defending Willis drifted in to tuck home the rebound.

Maresi then went close when he walked through the Buckingham backline and his shot across goal bounced off the back post and no one up with him to capitalise, and another Willis free kick curled around the wall saw Coombs have to dive to his left to gather. Athletic gave the ball away in midfield and Maresi was away down the right channel with just four minutes left, his shot across the goal face saw a bobble take the ball onto the post again but this time it bounced back across the empty six-yard box but again no one on hand to tap home and the danger was eventually cleared.

Pereira then caused havoc again inside the away penalty area, his initial shot saved by Coombs inside the six-yard area, two further shots were blocked before a raised flag halted the attack, but on the stroke of time they did get another when Rahzir Smith-Jones cutting in from the right saw his shot saved by Coombs but following up Maresi tapped into the empty net. F/T: 9-0

FA Youth Cup: Ath progress past impressive Flackwell outfit & travel to Windsor next

Buckingham Athletic U18 have been drawn to travel to Windsor in the next round of the FA Youth Cup after defeating Flackwell Heath last night.

Buckingham Athletic 3 Flackwell Heath 1

Competitive football is all about fixtures such as these. Two talented young sides, going head to head in a tactical survival of the fittest. The game itself was always going to be difficult and so it proved on the night. Flackwell Heath FC u18’s came into the game with a great reputation and many would have made them favourites. They approached the game with confidence and professionalism throughout and would prove a tough test for anyone.

The game started slowly for the ‘Ath’ as they looked nervous under pressure, Flackwell dominating possession in the early stages and pinning the Buckingham side in their own half, with only one player as an outlet to relieve pressure for the home side.

Flackwell failed to make the most of this though, not registering many shots and failing to break a resilient ‘Ath’ back line.

It was the turn of Buckingham then, to start threatening and they made it count, completely against the run of play, with a wonderful left footed, whipped free-kick from Rory Busby, who expertly placed the ball in the corner of the net, out of the reach of the goalkeeper, 1-0.

Rory Busby

The game continued in the same vein, although Buckingham’s confidence was growing, as the defence eased forward in attempt to close the gap.

Soon after Buckingham were winning more set pieces; in this instance a corner from the right hand side, whipped into the front post by Rory Busby, which was met by Geraint Minney and turned into the net via the goalkeepers hands (plenty of debate on who got the final touch for the goal however), 2-0. The half ended with a late Flackwell push for a goal, but despite their endeavour, the score remained 2-0 at half time.

The second half was tense throughout, Buckingham happy to continue with a well organised back four and man marking of the Flackwell influential players. Flackwell reverting to a more direct style of football in order to try and utilise their pace and need for a goal. Buckingham struggled for long periods to get out of their half but very rarely looked threatened. Flackwell did manage to create a few chances, which to the most part were dealt with comfortably by Larry Mills in the ‘Ath’ goal.

After some tactical changes midway through the half, Ethan McKop was able to draw a foul in the right hand corner with some neat footwork. Tom McElroy stepped up and hit a self-proclaimed Roberto Carlos-like strike with some venom, to take it beyond the goalkeeper and make it 3-0. This meant that Flackwell had to up the anti and they obliged, continuing to apply pressure to the rearguard of Buckingham. The ‘Ath’ defended brilliantly and as a unit throughout, taking as much time out of the game whenever possible.

Flackwell did however, manage to get themselves a goal back with around 4 minutes of added time to play, a nicely taken strike as the player rolled the defender and found his spot beyond a helpless Larry Mills in the ‘Ath’ goal. The game did however, finish at 3-1 and no one can take away the victory from

Buckingham who earned their stripes on the night with a different style of football to what everyone is used to, but effective in their application of tactics and mindset nonetheless.

A special mention to Caleb Adegbola, MOTM and Geraint Minney who performed their man marking roles to perfection once again, fantastic to watch and to have as a tactical asset in the team!

Thank you to everyone who came in support of both teams, we hope you enjoyed the game and look forward to seeing more of you in the future!

FA set to make Trophy, Vase & Youth cup draws on Friday

The FA will make their annual draws in the FA Trophy, FA Vase and FA Youth Cup on Friday when local clubs will learn their fate.

Sadly for Buckingham Athletic, they have been informed today that their application for the FA Cup has been unsuccessful.

Sports Shots will bring you the 2016-17 draws as soon as we spot them online!
