FOR the second consecutive week the Under 16s had to settle for a draw against tough opposition. League favourites Whetstone Sabers took an early lead, only for it to be cancelled out by a wonder strike from Dalton Akinniranyne. Sabers regained the lead after a mistake in defence, but Colts came back strong and scored their second goal when the captain Piars Lysaght headed home from a Nathan Oliver free kick.
The Under 15s South continued their great league start with a 4-2 win against fierce rivals St Albans Rangers. The goals were from Jake Anstiss, Callum Findlay, Steven Martin, and new boy Sam Cole. Ollie Sanders claimed the Man of the Match award.
Brandon O'Malley scored twice but the Under 14s were defeated 3-2 at Abbots Youth in the County Cup.
A six-goal first half performance saw the Under 13s claim victory against Aldenham Juniors Panthers. Two stunning long range goals from Jordan Donovan and Matthew Hamblin were the highlights of a superb first half performance. Another from Donovan plus goals from Cameron Leijgrave, Reece Davis and Alex Greaves gave Colts a 6-0 score at half time. Donovan completed his hat-trick in the second half and added another to make the final score 8-1. A strong and determined display from Tom Croughton ensured he took the Man of the Match award.
The Under 11s saw their unbeaten start to the season ended when they were defeated 7-1 by Nascot Wood Eagles. Adam Hill scored for Colts. Man of the Match Samson Stacchini saved a penalty before a retake was ordered, which was converted.
The Under 10s exited the Challenge Cup, losing 8-0 to Cassiobury Rangers Pumas. Colts battled well in the second half and were unfortunate not to score with Roberto Mirza proving a real menace to the Pumas defence. Alexander Journet controlled the game for a spell in the second half, but Man of the Match was Joe Wretham for his impressive wing play.
Armando Shashousa grabbed four goals and Jaidan Bennett and Josh Richardson both netted twice as the Under 8s beat AEK 8-1. Connor Chambers won Man of the Match for marshalling the defence in style.
