St Albans City Youth U9 Orient won the MHRML purple division cup final.


There was double joy for two of the St Albans City Youth teams with two divisional cup wins.

The U9 Orient team fought back from a goal down to beat Welwyn Pegasus in the Mid-Herts Rural Merit League Purple Division Cup while the U10 Romans beat Bengeo Tigers Caspians to claim the MHRML Maroon Division Cup.

Both games were played at The Hive, home of Barnet FC, and both were close.

Adam Lorman equalised for Orient before Sam Butterworth clinched the 2-1 win in the last minute.

Romans also won by one goal, Ryan Kennedy getting the all-important strike in the 1-0 win.

City Youth coaches were in action on Sunday when they beat St Albans City legends in a memorial game for David Wray at Clarence Park.

David’s son Andy got one in a 5-3 win, with Sam Russell, Lucy Hancock and Laurence Wilson (two) getting the rest.

Over £1,100 was raised for St Albans Special Olympics.
