Downham Market Blues take U12 local derby battle

Have your say

U12 Mid Norfolk Youth League

Downham Tn Blues 6 Downham Tn Whites 0

This good-natured derby saw friends and neighbours line up against each other, and the Blues emerge with the local bragging rights.

The Whites played some good attacking football throughout the game, but found the Blues defence in determined mood and goalkeeper Elliott Phillips in exceptional form.

The Blues took their chances clinically. Ethan Gould opened the scoring with a neat turn and finish, before a thunderbolt from Ben Terry and a long-range effort from Owen Stacey made it 3-0 at half-time.

In the second half came two unstoppable shots from Harrison Brant and a well-placed shot from Jevan Cook which made the final score 6-0.
