Waveney 5, Long Stratton Reserves 0
WAVENEY produced a comfortable victory against lowly Long Stratton and if not for some wayward home finishing and smart saves from the away keeper, the scoreline could have been even greater. Waveney delivered a ten minute spell of passing football that effectively killed the contest, making it a comfortable day for the hosts. With only ten 10 minutes on the clock Andy Ballard broke free on the left wing and reached the byline before cutting back to Aldis to find the bottom corner. A matter of minutes later the home side doubled their lead. This time Barker was provider as he found Scarff in a central position. With a lot of work still left to do, the midfielder took on a few of the opposition defence and as space opened up he poked it past the onrushing goalkeeper. Soon it was three and pretty much over for Long Stratton. Barker squared for Ballard to finish for a deserved goal. Aldis made it four at the start of the second half. Waveney added a fifth thanks to a fine individual strike from Gamble.
Veterans Football White Horse Seltic 3, K&P Vets Reserves 3
KIRKLEY went on their travels to Corton to play White Horse Seltic in this division two league game. Good early pressure from a strong K&P team led to Darren Sampson getting fouled in the box and a penalty was given. Bob Fitzpatrick scored to put Kirkley 1-0 up. White Horse then started to get back in the game as Kirkley eased off and this led to White Horse getting a penalty of their own, which was dispatched to make the half time score 1-1. The game swung from end to end and Kirkley managed to take the lead again through Sampson. White Horse still came back at Kirkley and confusion at the back led to them equalising before moving ahead to stun Kirkley. K&P tried to claw their way back and in stoppage time Fitzpatrick collected a pass 30 yards out and with no one closing him down, he unleashed a shot which curled in the top corner off the net with the keeper beaten.
Lowestoft Sunday League Waveney Hearts 5, Harrod UK 1
AT a warm Dip Farm Hearts ran out comfortable winners against a hard working Harrod side. After having an early penalty claim turned down, Hearts took the lead in the 24th minute when Paul Hunter put in Jamie Pells, who looped the ball over the Harrod keeper from 12 yards. Soon after Harrod equalised with a crisply struck shot from 16 yards. Hearts then retook the lead (36) when Hunter chased down a lost cause and whipped the ball across the face of the goal to veteran full back Leon Neeve who scored from close range. Soon after it was 3-1 when Joel Haverson struck a 30 yard low shot which deceived the Harrod keeper. Hearts then made it 4-1 (40) when Hunter slotted home from ten yards. The second half saw a constant flow towards the Harrod goal and just after the hour Hearts made it 5-1 when Carl Burgess and Pells combined to set up Hunter who lobbed the ball home from 25 yards. Hearts continued to press without increasing their lead with good chances falling to Pells and teenagers Jamie Houghton and Ben Dodsworth. Sunrise Inn MoM: Paul Hunter.
Norfolk and Suffolk Youth League Waveney Jaguars U11B 1, Shrublands A 0
AFTER only three years as a team, Waveney Jaguars U11B have been crowned champions two years running - resulting in them moving them from division three to division one for next season. They needed to win their last game of the season to be guaranteed champions. After a very tense and equally matched game against Shrublands A, the Jaguars managed a 1-0 win from a 10th minute penalty scored by their captain to become division two champions. The perfect end to a wonderful season for the boys, who deserve praise for the way they have played his season.
Blundeston Magpies U12 4, Long Stratton 2
THIS was the match to decide who would finish third and was a real game of two halves. Long Stratton took an early lead and then they had a period of dominance where the Magpies couldn’t get out of their half. Sam had a couple of chances, including a corner kick that bounced off the top of the bar before Long Stratton broke through the middle to double their lead. After a good move Taylor saw his shot rebound off the post and across the goal to safety. The second half saw the Magpies get back to the form of previous weeks, good work by Connell producing a ball over the crowded goalmouth for Declan to head home from close range. Soon after James was able to beat the keeper to the ball and shoot into the net from the narrowest of angles at the near post. Sam, James and Jamie had chances before a long shot by Jamie on the left was met by James to tap home at the far post and the turnaround was complete. Sam had two more chances and Long Stratton went close too before Jamie wrapped up the points in the last minute. MoM: Adam.
Kirkley & Pakefield U13 6, Filby & Runham 0
AN early goal from Dan M set the tone for this match as K&P turned on the style. Aaron doubled the lead with a perfectly placed long range free kick. Not to be outdone Sam added a third with an almost identical effort but this time from open play to put K&P firmly in the driving seat at half time. George B was giving the visiting the defence a torrid time and deservedly got on the scoresheet. Dan W then added the fifth and Brent rounded things off bursting through, wrong footing the defender and placing it out of the keeper’s reach to round off an excellent all-round team display. K&P MoM: George E.
Blundeston Magpies U13 3, Caister U13 1
A much improved Magpies performance saw the boys run out deserved winners against a dangerous Caister side. Dan maintained his fine form and linked up well with a resurgent Chopper who scored and set up a goal. Cam and Sam had strong games at the back in front of a superb Fletch. Magpies had missed a penalty and had a goal disallowed for a marginal offside before they scored from a well crafted move down the right. However, even at 3-0 Magpies didn’t look entirely comfortable as Caister played some neat counter attacking football. Caister got the goal their spirited play deserved when the Magpies failed to react to a goalmouth clearance allowing the pressing Caister player time to pick his spot unopposed.
Waveney Youth U13A 0, Gorleston Rangers A 1
Waveney Youth U13A met the league champions elect in this enthralling Suffolk Open Cup semi-final and despite a tremendous and wholehearted performance, Waveney just lost out by a single goal. Rangers had an early goal disallowed for offside but Waveney settled quickly and Mahoney’s pace created a chance for Woods who could not direct his header goalwards. The second-half saw Rangers squeeze ahead when Waveney lost possession in midfield. Waveney tried everything in the closing 15 minutes to draw level. Moran-Simons had a fair shout for a penalty and then Woods shot just wide after a superb move started by Anderson.
K&P Titans 0, Breydon U9 2
THIS being the last game of the season, with all the lads up for the game, it produced a good standard of football by both teams. With Breydon pressing Titans in the early stages, Jack pulled off some good saves, Goochy and Jamie held strong at the back. A good move by Breydon made it 0-1 before getting a second later on.
Girls football Brandon Lasses U10 1, Waveney Foxes U10 2
THE Foxes travelled to Brandon, needing a win to leapfrog Brandon in to third place in the league. Brandon scored in the 11th minute against the run of play. The Foxes didn’t let their heads drop, and were rewarded for their tenacity on 17 minutes, with E Barnes calmly finding the net from close range. The decisive goal came on 20 minutes, with G Thrower passing through the midfield to L Wright whose pinpoint ball found Barnes, who showed two Brandon defenders a clean pair of heels before calmly passing the ball in to the goal to the left of the stationary Brandon keeper.
Waveney U12 Girls 2, Horsford U12 Girls 1
WAVENEY welcomed Horsford and started strongly, with G Tiffin getting good tackles in. Playing two up front, Horsford threatened throughout the game. Thankfully, the Waveney defence were largely equal to this, and out of the blue, L Robbens found S Callighan who scored with a looping chip, which beat the Horsford goalkeeper. Horsford engineering an equaliser after the interval from a through ball that the Waveney defence failed to handle. With 15 minutes to go, Waveney made further substitutions and better passing enabled J Green to pass to L Cathersides who poked the ball past the Horsford keeper.
Waveney Girls FC U16 3, Whitton United 1
ALREADY Suffolk Girls Football League Champions Waveney met the already confirmed second Whitton United. Waveney took the lead through N Thomas. The defenders B Thomas, M Burrell, R Cotterill and M Wilson were very concentrated throughout the match, but were nevertheless outpaced when Whitton equalised. S Knights, S Eastwood, J Langer and G Wilson battled for every ball in midfield and N Thomas re-established the Waveney lead just before half time. Thomas completed her hat-trick early in the second half. L Teicher had further good chances in the second half and after Whitton increased the pressure S Reynolds was forced into a few good saves.
