U11 Royals Win Emerald Divisional Cup

Welwyn Pegasus U 11 Royals - ORC U11 Emerald Division CUP WINNERS
Wormley Reds 0 Welwyn Pegasus Royals 1

The 2 outstanding teams of the league met in the cup final held at Barnet’s Hive training centre.
Conditions were perfect with a large crowd gathered for the game on the Wembley like pitch.

Pegasus started the game strongly and had majority of early possession, good link play from forwards Liam Bilyard and Rory-Satterley Hull stretching the Wormley defence.

 
Slowly Wormley started to get into the game, but the midfield held firm with Adam Keating and James Griva proving to be particularly resilient.

As the 1st half ended Pegasus had more possession but Wormley were starting to look a little more dangerous, defenders Connor Ingram and Adam Naish both playing well as was keeper James Cornwall who was starting to be called into action.

The 2nd half saw the game open up a bit more with Wormley having a couple of decent chances to take the lead, fortunately for Pegasus keeper Cornwall was on fine form, making 2 great saves and also forcing another chance to be screwed wide by the bemused Wormley forward.

Welwyn Pegasus realised they had to raise their game and led by captain Sam Caiger and his partner Ramzy Nanou re-gained control of the midfield, Caiger forcing the Wormley keeper into 2 fine saves.

 

Extra time beckoned and Pegasus again looked on top, their fitness levels starting to show as Jacob Gammon and then Tavian Fadairo having strong runs down the wing but not quite finding forward Jack Reed.
Extra time flew by as the game opened up and the ball moved from end to end with some breath taking football by both sides.
As the 2nd period looked to be coming to a close Welwyn Pegasus really stepped up, first Jake Myles hit the post with a snap shot and then the move and goal of the game.
Caiger ran on to a loose ball in the centre circle, beat 2 Wormley players and drove forward, looked up and from outside the area hit an absolute screamer which flew in off the crossbar giving the Wormley keeper no chance. The noise and cheer from the Pegasus crowd was deafening.

Wormley just about had time to kick off again before the referee blew for the final whistle and the cup was won by Welwyn Pegasus.

A fantastic day and tremendous performance by all the team, many thanks for all the support the team had there and also our kit sponsors The Grange, Welwyn.

U14 Royals Win Premier Divisional Cup

Good footballing conditions at The Hive in Edgware today, the pitch predictably carpet-like, a cool day with a cold breeze blowing. The Royals boasted a full line-up for perhaps the first time this season, with regular absentees Callum Satterley-Hull and Tom Meenan making a welcome return, and even some former players had turned up to offer their support!  By contrast, Cuffley only had ten souls at their disposal today and it was to their credit that many present did not at first realise this!

A bright first half by both teams saw plenty of incident, with the Royals looking the stronger even if they did not make the most of their numerical advantage early doors. A snap shot on the break by Albie Langdon went narrowly wide in the opening minutes.  Some early pressure from the Royals saw successive corner kicks from Luke Howe trouble the Cuffley defence and a surging run down the right flank by Tom Jarman ended with a strong cross that saw a shot from Alfie Adcock blocked.

Following another corner kick, this time from Alfie’s boot, Ollie Harris almost opened the scoring when he hooked the ball over his shoulder only to see it cleared off the line. A snap shot on the turn by Sam Jackson-Graves flashed narrowly wide of the post before the Royals’ pressure eventually told. Tom and Alfie combined well together on the right wing and when it arrived, the cross into the penalty area caused instant confusion. Ollie squeezed off a deflected shot in the crowded area which Charlie Bell, following up dutifully, poked over the line, 1-0.
Maintaining the momentum, Albie won the ball smartly in the final third, riding a couple of tackles and loosing off a shot from some 20 yards out.  And moments later it was 2-0.  A strong run down the wing and cross from Ollie was superbly met by Albie whose header looped over the ‘keeper and in.

That further setback saw Cuffley switch back into gear and the Royals defence had to be on their toes to keep them at bay.  They rode their luck once or twice and saw Cuffley hit the cross bar after a marvellous move had seen them win a corner.  All defensive players were making some key contributions and James Davies was smartly off his line on several occasions, his confidence providing that vital boost for them as a defensive unit.
Cuffley started the second half strongly and stretched the Royals with a couple of moves, Bradley Webb and James coming to the fore again with some key interceptions and a couple of strong saves.  But the Royals weathered the storm and the pace soon settled.  The chances flowed and Ethan Peake forged a strong move on the left flank, connecting with Sam JG who fed Albie whose shot was saved.  Tom Meenan took his bow late on and nearly capped his return with a goal, but forced wide by the defender his shot, when it came, was saved.  The Royals were dominating the latter stages and the third goal arrived courtesy of Bradley, a just reward for a sterling performance on the day.  And just as in the first half, one goal was quickly followed by another.  Following a late assault by their opponents, Bradley again won the ball and surged forward.  Having ridden a few tackles he then fed a pass through for Albie to run on to, Albie successfully despatching his low shot from the edge of the area, 4-0.

Cuffley heads started to droop at last, the scoreline doing them little justice thanks in no small part to an excellent Royals’ defensive display.  But in the end it was a solid team performance and a great end to the season, with a Cup, medals and some shiny photos to boot – here’s to more of the same next time!
