Coventrians v RTJFC U17 Colts – Sunday 23 September 2018

Coventry & Warwickshire Youth League U17 Division B

Coventrians  2 -2 RUGBY TOWN U17 COLTS (sponsored by Hi-Speed Services Ltd) 

Colts battled hard to earn a deserved point in a robust encounter with Coventrians.

Colts started brightly and should have been ahead at half time. Charlie Trayford and Darek Kuberka forced the Coventrians keeper to make fine saves and were also denied by the inside of a post. The midfield of Sam Coulter, Henry King, Adam Fry, Sam Boazman and Jacob McCormack, created some neat passing moves and linked well with Trayford and Kuberka.  They worked hard tracking back in support of the defence to limit Coventrians chances on goal.

Colts started the second half slowly and found themselves 2 -0 within ten minutes of the restart. Heads did not drop though, and the defence of Robert Adams, Dionrae Reid, Freddie Stephenson and Jake Smith recovered well to snuff out any further Coventrians chances.  Colts were continuing to create chances, Kuberka shot wide, before Coulter scored twice after being put through on goal.

For all Colts pressure and effort they were unable to fashion a winning goal and the game ended in a draw.
