Youth section trio off the mark

Tuesday 5th October 2021

This weekend's inclement weather may have limited the number of youth section games that were able to take place. But three of Royal Wootton Bassett Town's teams took full advantage of being able to play as the Under 12 Girls, Under 16 Yellow and Under 18 Yellow teams all recorded their first wins of the season.

For the Under 12 Girls it was a particularly special occasion as their triumph away against Allstarz Girls Electra was their first win in competitive football.

They won in style too, coming from 2-0 down to win 5-2 thanks to a Daisy Bundy hat trick and Robyn-Jayne Spencer double.

A detailed report from their game can be read here.

In North Wilts League Division Three, the Under 16 Yellows got off the mark with a fine 4-3 home victory against Wroughton Youth Jaguars.

Bouncing back from their cup loss last weekend, Patrick Otto-Mensah (2), Ewan Painter and Lewis Taylor were on target to help their side claim all three points.

The Under 18 Yellows also registered their first win of their Division Three campaign as they defeated South Cerney Youth 3-1. All the goals came in the second half, with Morgan Bridgman, Charlie Hudson and Jacob Rendell-Haines netting for Bassett.

Elsewhere, four Bassett sides were in cup action.

The Under 13 Blues advanced to the North Wilts League Cup second round with a clinical 3-0 win away against Chiseldon Youth thanks to goals from Sonny Parmaku and William Smith. They will host FC Calne Youth in the second round in November.

The Under 13 Yellows were unable to join them as they lost 10-0 to Division One opponents Ramsbury Youth.

Also heading for the exit door were the Under 15 Blues and Under 14 Blues.

In round one of the Wiltshire County Cup, the Under 15 Blues were beaten by the odd goal in three by Croft Junior Blue. Parker Fisher was Bassett's scorer.

Meanwhile, Brandon Jack's goal was not enough to prevent a 5-1 loss for the Under 14 Blues against Lydiard Millicent Juniors in the North Wilts League Cup round one.
