Heighington under 9s vc Washington Lynx
The newly promoted Heighington u9s got their season underway against Washington Lynx u9s at Castle View. Heighington were hungry and got off to a great start with 2 fantastic goals from Marley. However, as the tide of the game gradually shifted, Heighington found themselves 3-2 down at half time. After a short breather and a little reflection the Heighington boys bounced back with a blistering goal from Lucas to even the game. After pressing on from the equalizer Heighington found themselves ahead after our captain Mason calmly fired home a free kick. This was followed by unrelenting pressure from Washington which was dealt with by a fab effort in defence from Isaac, Matty, Jamie, Oliver, Logan and James.
Another late goal from Marley sealed his hat trick as Heighington ran out 5-4 winners and took home the points.

Heighington AFC under 11s vs Escomb Warriors under 11s.
Our first league game back as under 11s and a move to 9v9. After a slow and nervy start to the match things picked up just before half time and we started to dominate going into the break 1-1. 2nd half everyone was amazing, we controlled the match, pressed them hard and passed the ball brilliantly. The match finished 5-1 to Heighington.
Goals were scored by:
Oliver C x1, Luca x1, Daniel x1, Teddy x1, Kalyb x1
MOTM went to Coleby for some excellent saves in the first half.
Really was an excellent game to watch.
