ISFA NORTH U16 REPRESENTATIVE TEAM

THE SOUTH PROVE TOO STRONG FOR THE NORTH

26th November 
ISFA U16 South V. ISFA U16 North
(Shrewsbury School)

ISFA U16 South 5 ISFA U16 North 0

In cold conditions at Shrewsbury School, ISFA U16 'South' came out at break neck speed, taking the lead within 2 minutes after an excellent cross from Dominic Clatworthy (Brentwood) resulted in a own goal.  In a dominant first period, the 'South' were soon 2-0 up when Camron Gbadebo (Royal Russell) turned home from close range.  Connor Manning (Westminster) made it 3-0 after a ball over the top and Toby McCallum (Millfield) made it 4-0 over at the break with following a sharp counter attack.  The second half was a lot more balanced with the 'North' enjoying more possession and territory.  However, it was the 'South' that scored the only goal of the half when Toby McCallum tucked home following a superb cross from Joseph Chard (Forest).

ISFA U16 North 1 Guiseley FC 3

Despite dominating possession, ISFA could not find the back of the net in a one-sided first half. George Archer (Manchester) and Max Dickov (Cheadle) both had chances saved. Just before the break Charlie Baker (Wolverhampton) in the ISFA goal saved well to keep the scores level at 0-0. Minutes into the second half ISFA deservedly took the lead when Max Rosser (Repton) pulled the ball back for George to finish from 6 yards. Guiseley equalised soon after and then took the lead through a double deflection. The game became extremely scrappy with both teams making a number of changes and Guiseley scored in the final moments with a long range effort to finish the scoring. Despite a disappointing second half the team should be proud of their efforts and look to build on their performance when they take on ISFA South next month.
