  FA Youth Cup First Qualifying Round DESBOROUGH TOWN U18  1 - 2    ST NEOTS TOWN U18            St Neots progressed to the Second Qualifying Round of the FA Youth Cup with a remarkable victory at Desborough.   It was almost a case of deja-vu when just 24 hours after the senior side in FA competition had seen their numbers reduced by a sending off early in the second half the dose was repeated when full back Jordan Heywood was dismissed one minute into the restart for allegedly kicking out at an opponent.  There was no score at that time and St Neots swiftly reorganised sacrificing a striker to bring on a defender before going on to clinch the result with two well taken second half goals.    For long periods the two sides looked evenly matched but for sheer courage and determination the visitors deserved their passage into the next round. Desborough began the brighter able to take full advantage of their pitch that approaches the maximum dimensions permitted. Connor Mulcahy had their first chance lobbing just wide over the advancing Evan Jeckells and then Jarred Gregory saw his shot deflected wide following a corner.   Charlie Lewis had St Neots first effort from distance that drifted just wide of goal but after 22 minutes St Neots seemed to be denied a penalty after an alleged handball on the goal line. Chris Lewis saw a shot blocked on the goal line with the home keeper out of position and just before the break another effort by Charlie Lewis was pushed over the crossbar. The early second half sending off saw the home side mount an offensive on the St Neots goal and Mulcahy saw his effort palmed over the bar and then a Jamie Porter beat Jeckells but rebounded from the crossbar.   Lewis Martin had an effort from 35 yards also pushed over the bar by the back peddling Jeckells but gradually St Neots began to come back into the game as skipper Isaac Clarke shot narrowly over the bar.   Then after 68 minutes Dan Lewis burst into the penalty area to be pulled down by Nathan White and a penalty kick was awarded that was confidently smashed into the roof of the net by Charlie Lewis.  Seven minutes later the same player freed Dan Lewis with a through ball and he rounded a defender to shoot.  His first effort was parried by home keeper Connor Scruton but he followed up to net and give his side a 2-0 lead.   As the ten men tired towards the end Desborough mounted a series of attacks and Jeckells made two important saves but was eventually beaten in injury time as Desborough substitute David Law claimed their late consolation goal. St Neots: Jeckells, Hutchings, Heywood, Nurettin, Harris (M), Rudman, Ofusu, Clarke, Lewis (Chris), Lewis (Charlie), Lewis (D) Subs: Harris (C) (for Lewis (Chris) 46 mins), Southwood (for Lewis (D) 84 mins), Bevan (for Clarke 84 mins) and Smith.

  FA Youth Cup ST NEOTS TOWN U18   5 - 1    BUGBROOKE U18              St Neots UI18 side selected from the Club’s scholarship squad recorded St Neots’ best ever victory in the FA Youth Cup with a resounding 5-1 victory over their Northamptonshire visitors Bugbrooke.   The hero was Dan Lewis who recorded an impressive personal hat trick but this was no one man performance with all the side contributing to a balanced and powerful showing.   They were solid at the back, inventive and hard working in midfield and up front Lewis and his co-striker Claudio Ofusu tore the visiting defence apart with their pace and finishing.   They now move on to face further Northamptonshire opponents with a trip to Desborough in two weeks’ time.   The visitors made the better start with St Neots looking tentative and nervous in the opening fifteen minutes. For Bugbrooke Bradley Evans shot wide and home keeper Evan Jeckells did well to push away a stinging shot from Kieran Starmer.   Evans then shot wide but as St Neots settled the exciting Claudio Ofusu sent a speculative shot just beyond the far post.   Dan Lewis then went past advancing goalkeeper Harry Littlemore but the narrow angle saw his shot hit the side netting after 19 minutes but six minutes later his persistence was rewarded when he opened the scoring with a delightful chip over the goalkeeper after good work by Ofusu.   Jeckells saved well from Jack Creaney on the half hour but he was powerless four minutes later when Kieran Starmer levelled the scores with a fierce close range volley. However in the five minutes before the break St Neots took a decisive step towards their victory with two further goals.   After 40 minutes an inswinging corner by Owen Bevan was sliced past his own goalkeeper by Creaney and four minutes later Ofusu cleverly controlled a long ball into the penalty area to set up Lewis for his second goal. Bugbrooke made a positive start after the break but were pegged further back in St Neots first second half attack after 49 minutes as a lengthy clearance by goalkeeper Evan Jeckells bounced over the last defender and Ofusu used his pace to beat Littlemore to the ball to make it 4-1.   After 65 minutes Dan Lewis’ hat trick goal from a narrow angle after good play by Bevan gave the visitors a mountain to climb and they never looked capable of retrieving a four goal deficit.   They sent on all three permitted substitutes with little improvement and were guilty of some fairly physical tackling that earned them three yellow cards.    The nearest they got to reducing the arrears was a shot from distance by substitute Connor Steele comfortably gather by Jeckells whilst at the other end Liam Hutchings brought the save of the match from Littlemore at the expense of a corner 10 minutes from time. Saints: Jeckells, Hutchings, Heywood, Clarke, Harris, Rudman, Humphrey, Nurettin, Lewis (D), Ofusu, Bevan Subs: Goodall (for Lewis 69 mins), Rayner (for Bevan 83 mins), Southwood (for Ofusu 85 mins), Gooderham and Theodoulou. Bookings: none Goals (St Neots):  Lewis 3 (25, 44 & 65 mins), Ofusu (49 mins), OG (40 mins) John Walker

Thurlow Nunn Youth Cambridge Division   ST NEOTS TOWN U18      2           HISTON U18       2   With their first two scheduled league matches in the newly created Cambridge Division either abandoned or postponed St Neots U18’s got their season under way with an entertaining 2-2 draw with visitors Histon. It was the first meeting of these two sides at this level and Histon who had been beaten in their first match looked a lively and well organised side – especially in the first half. St Neots, formed almost exclusively from the Club’s academy, showed a lack of experience but became stronger as the match wore on with several of their number also featuring in the Saints side in the UCL Division One.     Histon looked the better side in the first 45 minutes but with the pattern of play being open and end to end both sides created chances. It was from one of those early chances after Histon had seen two efforts deflected that St Neots took the lead with a well taken goal. George Goodall won a corner as his well struck shot was deflected wide by a defender and following the corner Goodall was well placed on the edge of the penalty area to lash the ball home. St Neots keeper Evan Jeckells then did well to save a stinging volley from Norbert Zalejski but at the other wend Dan Lewis almost increased the lead with a volley gathered by Will Gilbert. However Histon were in the ascendancy and Oliver Haberham squandered two excellent chances to level the scores shooting wide of target when well placed. Then in a ninety seconds spell in the five minutes before the break Histon capitalised on their possession scoring twice. After 40 minutes Jeckells dived full length to parry a Haberham shot but the ball fell kindly for Zalejski to open the visitors account and in their next attack Histon took the lead as Matt Allen netted after Jeckells had touch a shot onto the cross bar. The first half drama continued as Jordan Stewart was judged to have fouled Zalejski but from the resultant penalty award Haberham sent his kick high over the bar.   The second half was less intense as St Neots settled to dominate possession.  With skipper Isaac Clark and Erhan Nurettin dominant in midfield they created chances but Charlie Luff saw his shot well saved by Gilbert who then produced a further series of good saves to deny Goodall and Ofusu. The save of the match came on the hour – a reflex clawing save to deny Dan Lewis and then Goodall was wasteful firing wide when well placed. However justice was served two minutes from time when the speedy Claudio Ofusu broke clear of the defence to earn a point for his side with a clinical finish.   St Neots: Jeckells, Hutchins, Stewart, Nurettin, Humphrey, Rudman, Goodall, Clarke, Ofusu, Lewis, Bevan   Subs used:  Rayner, Luff, Southwood, Theodoroo and Fisher.   Cards:  Stewart (Y – 43), Ofusu (Y – 45)   Goals (St Neots):  Gooderham (10 mins), Ofusu (88 mins)     John Walker
