🆚 Crawley and Maidenbower Panthers U15s
🏟 Maidenbower Park, Crawley
⏱ Panthers 2 Colts 3
⚽ Leo, JP, Jakub
Maidenbower Colts U15 Black Team boosted their promotion charge after winning a titanic tussle with local rivals Panthers.
Colts produced their best performance of the campaign to settle a derby-day clash that had drama, excitement, and a contender for goal of the season.
Man-of-the-match Leo capped a talismanic display by giving Colts an early lead with a free kick from the halfway line that deceived the keeper.
Panthers hit back with two quickfire goals before JP slotted a deserved equaliser from just inside the box.
Jakub then conjured up a magical winner with a 25-yard thunderbolt that flew into the top corner.
It was an outstanding effort from Colts, who defended resolutely and stamped their passing game on the midfield.
Manager Mitch Parratt said: “I am so proud of all of them. The starting XI were brilliant, as were the subs. This shows if we play our game, we can beat anyone.”
Today one group of our Mini Colts received their brand new Maidenbower Colts FC home and away kits, ready to start their journey into Mini-Soccer, becoming our U7 Red Team. In September they will play in the Crawley & District Youth Football League. Thank you to our Kit Officer, Mitch, for ensuring their kits arrived in good time and to the U7 Squads’ new sponsor Wickhams Brown – Case Makers. maidenbowercoltsfc #grassrootsfootball #since1998 #footballfamily #proudtobecolts #youthfootball #cluboftheyear #awardwinning
