This weekend only saw three of our teams in action with new regulations stopping all friendlies and the TJFA league not officially starting till the weekend of 4th October.

Under 8 Whites RYFL Division 5, Saturday 26th September

Newton Aycliffe U8 Whites played against Harton with brilliant work from all the players and a great team effort. Will and Oscar C covering each other well at the back again, William B was excellent in goal and Regan covered every blade of grass with bags of energy. The new players, Ozzie C and Ellis, did really well for their first time and will only get better with each game.

Regan scored both goals.

MOTM was awarded to Oscar C for his great tackles and passing.

Under 9 Blacks RYFL Division 9, Saturday 26th September

Disappointing for the U9 Blacks today, crowded off the ball and not finding the simple pass, a bit like watching bees round a pot of honey sometimes. Aycliffe went behind with one goal being an opportunistic hit that Aycliffe’s keeper was unlucky not to save on this occasion. However, the team did not give up and battled back with a goal through Benjamin but could not find another. It was great to see the boys playing and working as a team.

MOTM was awarded to Alfie with some great tackles against a very big (looked like a14 year old) striker.

Under 9 Whites RYFL Premier Division, Saturday 26th September

Newton Aycliffe U9 Whites played against Spennymoor after a short two week break from the premier division. It was a well matched game with both sides playing to their strengths and neither giving much away. Aycliffe’s goal scorer was Tyler.

MOTM was awarded to two defenders Sammy and Thomas for their great battling performance.
