The Under-15s travelled to Kidderminster Harriers to play this opening game of the season.
Within the opening minutes the lads pressed the home side, creating several early chances. Alex Howell with a great strike from 15 yards found the top corner for a great debut goal to make it 1-0.
Both teams competing well for the ball, a heavy tackle from Ben Nightingale resulted in the first booking of the season for the U15’s whilst Kidderminster also picking up a booking early on.
Ethan Rushton delivering the ball from the set piece to Sam Pearce on the right of midfield, a well delivered ball to the back post was collected by Carter Lycett, a cool finish giving another debutant his first goal for the club, 2-0.
With the pressure building on the Kidderminster goal, a ball delivered into the box from Cameron East, Sam Pearce with a neat finish to make it 3-0.
A sloppy pass from Rushall, collected by the home team, Kidderminster push forward and finish well for 3-1.
Lucas Fallon takes the ball down on his chest, he plays a well weighted ball through for Alex Howell who out-paces the last defender and steers the ball around the advancing keeper for 4-1.
Rushall take their foot off the gas, as the home team pushed forward, passing the ball well and a great shot from Kidderminster’s No19, Brad Price makes an excellent diving effort to keep the ball out, the ball is inches away from Brad as Kidderminster reduce the deficit to 4-2.
A good reaction from the under-15s, three passes from the re-start, Lucas Fallon lobs the 'keeper from 25 yards to make it 5-2.
A good opening game for the lads, a lot of hard work pre-season from the players, manager and coaches is reflected on today’s performance. Thanks for Kidderminster for hosting this fixture, we look forward to the return fixture later this season.
