Coventry & Warwickshire Youth League
Rugby Town JFC U18 Juniors 6-1 Rugby Town JFC U18 Youth
Rugby, sponsored by Vasstech, started their season with the most local of local derbies. A solid first
half display by Youth featured good defensive organisation by the whole team with the central
defensive pair of Aidan Hobley and Samuel Collins on great form. The Juniors were restricted to long
range efforts allowing Viraj Parmar so show his shot stopping skills. A quickly taken free kick saw
Juniors take the lead after 25 minutes with a well taken far post header.
Youth opened the second half on the front foot and nearly equalised from a long range Christian
Sono pile drive which hit the bar. The withdrawal of Collins with a serious knee injury upset the
balance of the game and Juniors were soon well on top. Youth rallied late in the game and scored a
deserved consolation when a Taran Somel corner was flicked on by Sono to the far post for Elliot
Newland to fire home.
