Heighington U15’s welcomed Redcar Athletic on a glorious afternoon to the Parish Fields. In what was a competitive match, the home side again squandered several great chances early in the match to take the lead, but it eventually came after Jack Emmerson nodded a header into the path of Liam Wright who finished neatly at the far post. Although they didn’t have a huge amount of possession Redcar carried a threat and their two strikers carved out some decent chances.
It was only a matter of time though before Heighington added to the lead, and again striker Liam Wright clinched it to make it 2-0. In the second half, it was a more even game in respect to chances, with Redcar hitting the bar, and the defence clearing off the line on a couple of occasions. After having been denied a penalty, one was awarded and Lucas Thompson dispatched it with aplomb to make it 3-0, which is how it ended, MOM was a split decision between Sam Thompson, and Broden Forster.
