Albert Foundry

The Saints faced table toppers Albert Foundry on Friday and, having won the reverse fixture a few weeks previously, were expecting a difficult encounter. A physical Foundry side had the better of the first half, taking the lead through a penalty, and adding a second when the Saints failed to deal with a high ball. At the other end, Saintfield did not have many chances, but Andrew Clarke went close from a free kick, and Chad Nobleís header from a corner was well saved.

In the second half, the Saints did better in possession, making it much easier to compete. They deservedly pulled a goal back after a slick passing move, which began in the right back channel and, after a series of one touch passes, ended with Sam Kirk teeing up Sam Donnan on the left wing for an excellent team goal. Similar passing moves created further chances for Donnan and Clarke, but it was Chad Noble who eventually equalised with a long-range free kick. The Saints defence had restricted the opposition to long range efforts, and the match appeared to be heading for a draw, until a super cross was headed in off the post to give Foundry the victory.

A tough result for the Saints, but a good performance nonetheless, particularly considering that the majority of the squad will still be eligible to play at U17 level next season. Chad Noble was voted man of the match for a super defensive display, with Sam Kirk and Sam Donnan also impressive in attack.



Goal Scorers: Sam Donnan (1), Chad Noble (1)
