21's Maintain Winning Run

Monday Oct 1, 2018

 Highgate latest victims!

 Tamworth FC u21’s traveled to local rivals Highgate United u21’s this week and the Tamworth Management team were looking for a reaction to last week’s disappointment. A couple of changes in the approach to the game with the way we prepared proved dividends as the team delivered a full and robust professional performance.

 On a bright crisp day at The Coppice Tythe Barn, Tamworth opted to kicked up the slope to start with Stefan Mason taking the Captains arm band to lead the young lambs. Highgate started well, as did Tamworth the slope certainly aiding Highgates attacking formation, the pairing of Alex Smith and Man of the Match Kyle Ambris at centre backs dealing with the barrage of attacking play, and long balls into the box from throw ins and good delivery into the box from the Gate. Aiden Jeynes the lambs keeper easily dealing with several efforts catching cleanly in all cases.

 Tamworth worked hard to nullify the attacks and looked most dangerous getting the ball out and switching play to the wingers to attack Highgates defence, the final ball was not quite there, resulting in the first half finishing 0-0 with Tamworth creating just a handful of chances, but not looking like taking the lead.

 Tamworth came out for the second half looking to take control of the second half and play the football that we have witnessed over the last few weeks which has bought the team success.The Midfield of Stefan Mason and Ethan Hetherington were working tirelessly and combining well with Ramzi Shaheen, the quality was starting to show with the wingers and midfielders starting to carve out chances, this eventually broke the Gate in the 47th minute a through ball by Mason allowed Tyrone Ofori to breakaway from his marker and fired a precise shot past the Gate keeper into the far corner from 18 yards, 0-1 to Tamworth.

 Tamworth continued to dominate Gate rarely getting out of their half, 22 minutes later it was Tyrone again, after a long clearance from Aiden Jeynes, Tyrone Ofori ran onto the kick and smartly fired his second into the net from the edge of the box 0-2 Tamworth. Tamworth continued to play football pressing Gate into the last third of the field, which enabled Ethan Hetherington to score in the 89th minute, which perhaps the best goal of the game, travelling down the inside left beating three Gate players, playing the ball through the legs of the defender and from a tight angle firing the ball into the far top corner of the net for a well deserved goal and to shut the Gate in style 0-3 Tamworth.
