21's Hit Double Figures

Thursday Apr 18, 2019

 Emphatic home win for Young Lambs!

 Tamworth Under-21s secured their biggest win of the season on Saturday morning against Allexton & New Parks at The Lamb, write Tom Scott. The visitors grabbed two consolation goals, but five goals in each half saw the Lambs take all three points.

 With just seconds on the clock, Josh Barnes had to be alert to deny the visitors a very early goal. But just seven minutes later, Cam Phillips gave the hosts the lead, heading home Jay Thorne’s cross after rattling the crossbar not long before.

 Centre-back Kelly then found himself in the attacking third and rifled the ball beyond the keeper from 20-yards to double the Lambs’ lead. Tamworth continued to dominate the ball and didn’t have to wait long to make it three – Phillips with his second, this time nodding home James Medford’s cross. Sam Watts added an unorthodox fourth shortly after, scoring direct from a corner.

 Tamworth were playing much of the game in their opponents’ half with the visitors looking to limit the damage and Kyle Ambris went close after whistling a shot just wide of the mark. Man-of-the-match Medford continued to cause the defence issues and bagged a goal just after the half-hour mark after evading his marker before slamming home. Two minutes later he almost got his second before Allexton & New Parks took advantage of a packed penalty area at the other end to make it 5-1 ten minutes before the break. Rahiem Faulder and Dec Somel almost restored Tamworth’s five-goal lead before the interval but the away side stood firm.

 Medford, Thorne and Faulder all went close at the beginning of the second-half but nobody could get the crucial finish. On the hour mark, Alex Smith fired high over the bar – an effort that sparked the Lambs back into life. But just three minutes later, it was in fact an own-goal that took the Lambs to six for the morning. Substitutes Ramzi Shaheen and Ethan Hetherington linked up for the seventh, the latter drilling home after good work from Shaheen.

 The Lambs were rediscovering their rhythm and Faulder’s effort somehow squirmed under the keeper from long-range to make it eight. Allexton & New Parks made the most of a rare attack and grabbed a second but cancelled that out by giving away a penalty almost immediately at the other end. Shaheen converted the spot-kick before a fine, solo effort from Kyle Ambris finished off a comprehensive win for the young Lambs.
