Ashington Cougars U15 v Worthing Minors Green U15
Cougars final game before the Plate final saw them unusually playing on a Sunday away to Worthing Minors Green in a friendly match. Cougars had several players missing so a guest appearance from Freddie Harvey, new signing Orkun Kinas-Clarke making his debut and a brief return from early retirement for Ned Sigston ensured Cougars were able to field 11 players.
The game was a one sided affair from the kick-off, despite several half chances and dominating the game Cougars were unable to open the scoring, however it was very apparent they were in cruise control and could up the tempo at any point.
Freddie Harvey and Orkum Kinas-Clarke controlled play from the left and right wings respectively with William Farnes looking threatening at centre forward and it was no surprise that is was William who opened the scoring after 20 minutes and then extend the lead to 2 – 0 shortly after. Before the break Worthing did have a 10 minute spell where they looked dangerous and pulled a goal back aswell as forcing Jack Evans into an excellent save when diving to his right and tipping a goal bound shot wide of the post.
The first half ended 2 – 1 to Cougars.
The second half saw Cougars more dominant than the first with Ned Sigston relishing only his second appearance playing in front of the back four (apparently that’s CDM, didn’t exist in my day! ) and deserved his goal when volleying a half clearance into the goal. A promising first appearance from Orkun Kinas-Clarke saw him score two goals and the ever reliable Toby Ralph scored his 40th goal of the season (including friendlies). Liam Hutchison completed the scoring in the last minute of the game.
The game ended 7 – 1 to Cougars giving them their 21st win of the season – just one more for the double!
