St Matthews

The U17s came out on top in an entertaining match against St Matthews, working hard to claim the win against their energetic opponents. St Matthews took the lead early on when the scrambled home a loose ball in the box, after which United had their best period of attacking play. Andrew Clarke equalised when Harry Harpur collected Matthew King’s cross and back-heeled the ball through for a close range finish. Clarke then had a free kick cleared to the edge of the area, which was drilled into the net by Scott McCormick. St Matthews always looked dangerous from set pieces, and forced an equaliser from a corner before half time to leave the score at 2-2.

St Matthews had the majority of possession in the second half, but United held firm against a succession of high balls with Noble and Gibson marshalling the defence. Eventually though, a lapse in concentration allowed a long ball to evade everyone and allow St Matthew’s to retake the lead. United responded well to this set back, and equalised for the second time when Ethan Barr collected Gibson’s free kick, turned sharply and curled the ball into the top corner. With the match evenly poised, and both teams threatening to win, it was unfortunately an error which was decisive, when a mix-up in the St Matthew’s defence allowed Andrew Clarke to pounce and regain the lead for Saintfield. Harpur and Trueman both came close to adding further goals, but in the end Clarke’s goal proved to be the difference between the teams.

Although it wasn’t the most polished passing display from the Saints, they defended resolutely against their more physical opponents and worked hard to secure the victory.



Goal Scorers: Andrew Clarke (2), Ethan Barr (1), Scott McCormick (1)
