NORTHERN COUNTIES YOUTH COMPETITION
Durham County FA v East Riding County FA – Match Report
The East Riding County FA Juniors travelled to County Durham to play their first Northern Counties Division 1 fixture and they were made very aware of the standards required to compete at this level by strong, powerful opponents.
DURHAM COUNTY FA 4
EAST RIDING COUNTY FA 2
Durham had much the better of the early play without creating clear chances other than a couple of wayward long range efforts. But it was the East Riding who took the lead in the 15th minute completely against the run of play. A defence splitting pass from Jamie Forrester and a perfectly timed run and finish from Keelan Proctor resulted in well worked opener. However, the lead was short lived as Durham were level within a minute. As Sonni Coleman’s strike from the edge of the area found the net. The Riding then was grateful when Matt Tait cleared the ball off the line and then keeper Jack Lister saved well to deny Adam Wrightson. But Durham took the lead from the resulting corner kick. Wrightson’s delivery found Brandon Kirkbride who headed home from close range. The Juniors went close when Sam Tucker’s long range effort went just wide of the far post. Durham extended their lead in the 42nd minute when Kieran Day’s cross found Coleman with his back to goal but an inventive finish with a flick of the boot did the trick.
Durham’s dominance continued after the break with a series of near misses and they were posing a threat from every corner kick. Keeper Lister made a couple of fine saves to deny Adam Curry and Brandon Kirkbride. In a rare attack from the visitors, Lewis Reeve and a shot comfortably saved by Shay Adamson. But Reeves’ persistence brought its reward in the 80th minute when he found the corner of the net. The goal sparked life into the East Riding as they went for an unlikely equaliser but Durham’s quality won the day as they restored their 2 goal lead in the 84th minute when Jake Orell converted David Vincent’s cross to secure a well-deserved victory for the hosts.
The ERCFA Juniors are in action next Saturday when they entertain Shropshire in the 1st Round of the FA County Youth. The kickoff is at 1pm at the Roy West Centre. Admission is free.
