Finham Park Rangers v Rugby Town Juniors U18 Youth

Coventry & Warwickshire Youth League

Finham Park Rangers 3-1 Rugby Town JFC U18 Youth

Rugby, sponsored by Vasstech, made a slow start and found themselves a goal down inside the opening 15 minutes. With Christian Sono and James Branagh starting to win more of the ball in midfield Rugby battled back with the pace of Gabriel Fernandes a real threat down the right wing. It was therefore slightly against the run of play that Finham extended their lead before the break.
A lapse of concentration saw Finham take a 3 goal lead but Rugby hit back. An Aidan Hobley free kick found Tristan Birch and after his initial shot was blocked Ashik Akram fired home from a tight angle. Viraj Parmar pulled off a couple of great saves to keep Rugby in the game and at the other end a rasping Birch shot was tipped over the bar. With neither side able to create further chances the game finished 3-1.
