U17s: Caversham AFC Stallions 3 Ashridge Park 6
Five debutants for the U17s provide a breath of fresh air as football returns. Undaunted by an early setback as Caversham take the lead on 10 minutes, Ashridge create a stack of chances, before finally levelling just after the half-hour. The dam then bursts and four more goals follow in the next 25 minutes to leave the blues firmly in control and hunting more goals, before a combination of over-exuberance and tiredness allow the home side to strike back. Three of the debutants among the goals: Ice Goswell (2), Sachin Vara and Adam Williams, with Jamie Cole and Antonio Baciu also on target.
