Fenland and District LeagueChatteris under-10 A 0 Lutton 3CHATTERIS started strongly by putting Lutton under pressure straight from the kick off with some excellent passing and movement.During the first 15 minutes, Chatteris were well on top with their midfield totally dominating the match and creating numerous chances but they could not beat the Lutton goalkeeper.After 18 minutes, Lutton finally attacked and from a resulting corner the ball somehow found its way into the net.This seemed to be the turning point in the match with Lutton getting stronger and just before half time the visitors scored another. Changes were made at half time with Chatteris playing with two strikers and only one at the back and they were unlucky not to score but conceded a third just before the final whistle.Harry Matthews was Chatteris' man of the match with a good all round display. Team: R White, F Ransome, S Merryweather, K Anderson, J Dodman, H Matthews (c), L Birch, J Baker, K Parrish.Chatteris U10 C 0 Chatteris U9 1THIS proved to be an entertaining friendly match which saw continuous end-to-end play from both teams.Although both sides had plenty of shots on goal, credit has to be given to both goalkeepers who produced some fine saves.The only goal came after 10 minutes following good work in midfield and an excellent finish from the under-nines' striker.There were dogged performances from the under-10s' Patrick Ford, Damon Beckett and Tom Russell. U10 team: Jake Wignall (MoM), Jordan Martin, Kieran Young (c), Ben Perry, Patrick Ford, Daniel Mott, Damon Beckett, Tom Russell.
