Colts hosted runaway leaders Balsall, putting in a great team performance to end their 100% record. Colts started well with their fast breaks and Archie’s strength giving Balsall problems, Will, Archie and Thomas being denied after great moves. Defenders Gabriel, Harry, Fin and Alfie were excellent allowing Balsall very few chances, when they did they found Matt in fine form, but an unfortunate ricochet saw them concede just before the break.


Midfielders Jack, Nathan, Devan, Somi, Will and Danny worked exceptionally hard against fast and strong opponents giving Colts a solid base to work from, resulting in them dominating the second half and scoring three quick goals to leave Balsall reeling. Fin’s corner was headed on by Thomas for Somi to finish, before Devan found space to fire Colts ahead. Thomas then lobbed the keeper from 30 yards after being put through by Nathan, cue deserved celebrations at the end.
