Wotton Rovers U10s 8 Rodborough U10s 0

WOTTON flew out of the blocks on Saturday morning and blew their opposition away with a breathtaking display of passing football.

A blistering shot from Jamie Stacey was parried by the keeper and captain Alex Bishop was on hand to side-foot home.

A pinpoint cross from the effervescent Ethan Smith was met by Stacey in the box and his bullet header made it 2-0.

Stacey's low hard ball in to the area was turned in to his own net by a hapless Rodborough defender to make it 3-0 with only five minutes on the clock.

Jack Powell finished smartly shortly before half-time to score Rovers' fourth.

He was on hand to score another three in the second half, capping a fantastic personal achievement, while Smith, who was simply unstoppable down the right flank all game long, was rewarded when his long range effort made it a great eight for Wotton.

* Wotton Rovers are holding a series of five free taster sessions for under-14 girls (Year 9), who are keen to play football.

These will take place on Mondays from 5pm to 6pm on the new 3G pitch at New Road behind KLB school, starting on Monday, March 3. The sessions will be run by FA qualified coaches.

Players should wear shin pads, clean football boots or trainers but metal or metal tipped studs are not allowed.

It is not necessary to book a place but for further information contact Nick Ford on nicandlesleyford@aol.com or 843436.
