Frickley Athletic’s under nines Blues won 2-0 at Armthorpe Rovers Greens with an excellent team performance.
Two well taken goals, one in each half, secured a well-deserved win.
Coach Allan Howcroft said: “These lads are getting better every week and it is a pleasure to coach them. They have enthusiasm and are willing to listen and learn.”
Frickley under nines Yellows gave a great performance in a 1-1 draw against Doncaster Wolves.
Frickley went 1-0 down from probably the only shot Doncaster had and then after that it was all one way traffic from Frickley.
They hit the woodwork and were foiled by good saves.
Sustained pressure paid off with Doncaster scoring an own goal.
Fryston continued to press but could not find a winner.
Frickley under 11s Blues recorded a 7-1 home victory against Tickhill Juniors in their last league game of the season.
Tickhill stunned Frickley by taking the lead with their only attack of the game. That was the wake-up call Frickley needed because the next 50 minutes was all in Tickhill’s half.
Frickley roared back in great style but it was not the goals scored that pleased coach Allan Howcroft but the attitude of the lads and the football they played.
They worked hard on and off the ball to force mistakes and got their rewards in doing so.
Frickley under 11s Yellows lost 3-1 to league champions West End Bentley.
It was the best first 10 minutes to a game Frickley have played all season but they could not maintain it and West End Bentley scored two excellent goals on the break against the run of play.
West End Bentley found the net again just 10 minutes before half time.
Frickley were down but not out and their second half performance was commendable.
Although the quality was lacking in places and at times the run of the ball just didn’t seem to go Frickley’s way, the players’ attitudes and commitment to stay and fight for the game was excellent.
Frickley were able to grab a consolation goal with 15 minutes left through Declan Clegg and several chances after that made it a hectic end to the game. Unfortunately Frickley couldn’t do the double over the league champions, but coach Jake White was proud of the boys for their commitment.
