Five-star Aleks lifts U12 Yellows to stunning win in 13 goal thriller

Tuesday 19th October 2021

Aleksander Goralczyk had already scored four goals in a single game for Royal Wootton Bassett Town Under 12 Yellow this season. Against South Cerney he went one better, netting five times as Bassett came out on top 7-6 in an unbelievable thirteen goal thriller.

Helping seal the win – the Yellows' third in their opening four North Wilts League Division Five games – was a brace from Stanley Lockley.

Also maintaining their fine starts to the 2021-22 season were Bassett's two Under 13 sides.

In Division One, the Blues returned to the top of the table with a 5-1 home win against FC Calne Youth – the side who started the day at the summit. Goals from Liam Lye-Owens (2), Phanuel Asenso, Karol Czekanski and William Smith earned Bassett a deserved, convincing triumph as the side responded brilliantly to their first defeat of the season in their previous outing.

While not top of the table, the Under 13 Yellows are sitting in a healthy third place in Division Four. Like their Under 12 equivalents, they have three wins from their first four games after beating South Cerney 8-1. William Moreton led the way with a hat trick, Fynn Crone and Jack McGeoch both netted braces, while William Pegler also scored.

Elsewhere the Under 18 Yellows were the only other youth section side in action to claim a positive result. They drew 1-1 away against Kingsdown Lions Blue thanks to a Harvey Watkinson goal.

The Under 18 Blues slipped to a narrow 1-0 home loss against Lambourn Sports Juniors, who grabbed all three points with a goal scored on the break.

The Under 14 Yellows scored four times, but fell to a heavy 13-4 defeat against Ferndale Rodbourne YCFC.

And the Under 12 Girls were beaten 8-0 by unbeaten Marlborough Youth Tigers in the Wiltshire County Women's and Girls' League. A detailed report from that game can be read here.
