SHILDON v Spraire Lads

Due to FA rules, we are unable to provide details of the result.

Shildon played host to Darlington Spraire Lads, with both sides creating numerous chances.  Their all-round play is showing the good coaching they are receiving.  Jack Leighton was given the man of the match award, however it should be said that there were excellent performances by all the team.

Man of the match – Jack Leighton

SHILDON v Primrose Hill

Due to FA rules, we are unable to provide details of the result.

Shildon had their regular goalkeeper missing through illness, but Kian Dixon stepped in to produce a good performance.  The team battled well against a larger and more experienced squad, and played some good passing football.  This team is beginning to show what they are capable of and against larger and more experienced teams have coped manfully with the task and have for  long periods been the better team. The corner is turning. Well done lads and lasses.

Man of the match – Anth Jary

SHILDON  2  10  Mount Pleasant

Scorers – Callum Brown (1) Callum Griffiths (1)

Man of the match – Callum Griffiths

Shildon still await their first win after a disappointing defeat at home to Mount Pleasant Rangers.

The team were under pressure from the start with a goal from the visitors within the first 5 minutes.  Shildon produced some good chances but were unlucky and failed to score before halftime, with a further 3 from the away side.

A good team talk at the break saw the boys come back with great spirit and their hard work paid off with a goal from Callum Brown.  Mount Pleasant were quick to respond and scored straight from the rebound.  More goals followed but Shildon still piled the pressure on and saw more opportunity with a great corner by Will Dixon, but great defending from the away side kept the ball from the back of the net.  Callum Griffiths got Shildon’s second and final goal from a corner, with the whistle blown just after.

The under 11’s were praised for their performance from the visiting side who said the boys played with heart and determination until the final whistle.


Under 13’s

SHILDON  8  0  Great Ayton

Scorers  –  Adam Campbell (2), Noah McCourt (2), Alex Lamb (2) Tom Andelin (1) Ben Oliver (1)

Man of the match – Tom Andelin

The Under 13’s played host to Great Ayton, and produced arguably their best display as a team in 15 months.  After the previous week’s victory, the team started well again, with a couple of good attacks.  However, it was Great Ayton who produced the first effort, with Niall Higham pushing a great effort around the post.  This spurred on the home team, with Adam Campbell racing onto a through ball to calmly slot it just inside the left hand post on 10 minutes.  Almost immediately from the restart, Noah McCourt, making his debut, broke through, rounded the keeper and doubled the advantage.  Ten mins later, a ball over the top saw Tom Andelin clear, and he made no mistake with a calm finish.  The team were now playing some great football, and within a few minutes, McCourt (post) and Campbell (bar) had rattled the woodwork.  On 30 minutes, Ben Oliver got the 4th with a fine finish, and just before the break, Alex Lamb made it 5 with an excellent goal.  Lamb then had time to hit the bar before the half time whistle.  Into the second half, Alex Lamb got his second of the match with another excellent finish, before McCourt got his second on 60 minutes to make it 7.  Adam Campbell rounded off the scoring direct from a corner.

A great team display with the defence really solid, the midfield working hard and a genuine outlet up front.  Tom Andelin picked up the MOTM award, however, there were many candidates.
