Under 16s win Northern Final

Sunday 19th April 2015

Bala 0-2 TNS (played at Airbus FC)

Goal scorers : James Harrison and Andy Vale

Today saw the boys play in the Northern final against Bala at Airbus. We knew we were in for a difficult game. We started the game brightly and James Harrison after 5 minutes scored with a scorching free-kick which flew into the top corner. We frustrated Bala and restricted them to play the long ball, and had numerous chances to extend our lead but the Bala defence stood strong. Second half saw the introduction of probably their most dangerous player, but credit to the boys and Dan Cox for not allowing him any time or space. We managed to score a second through an Andy Vale header from a superb cross from Alix Godfrey. We held out for the crucial win and now play Cambrian in the all Welsh final at Newtown Sunday May 3rd.

Credit to the boys and Bala in what turned out to be a very tough game for both sides. Certainly the best side we have faced this year. Each player was a real credit to the club and we now look forward to the final.
