NWL U11 Division 1: CCCFC Whites 3 Pewsey Vale 0 Print
Season 14/15 - Under 11 White

After their heroics in the cups, the Whites finally registered their first North Wilts League win of 2015 at the expense of Pewsey Vale.
While the final margin of victory was perhaps slightly harsh on a well-drilled visiting side who tried to play the right way throughout, Colts were deserving winners and will look to continue their good form in next week’s League Cup semi-final clash with Forest Green Rovers.
They were never at their best on a cold morning at the sportsfield and Pewsey made the better start. Bradley recovered superbly to thwart a one-on-one attack and Max plucked a dangerous corner out of the air before racing from his line twice to clear the danger.
Colts carved out the lion’s share of chances in an end to end contest, however, with Luke V seeing a low shot held after a great run and cross from the left by Brandon M and Matthew lashing an effort inches past the far post following a trademark dribble into the area.
The opening goal arrived from the penalty spot after a Pewsey player handled Toby’s cross. He took the spot-kick himself and it proved too hot to handle for the keeper, who was just unable to prevent the ball from reaching the corner of the net.
Brandon H was narrowly off target as Colts chased a second goal and he linked well with Liam, whose close control caused the Pewsey defence plenty of headaches.
Pewsey were full of ideas and running up front, though, and Josh and Luke S worked tirelessly to keep their chances on goal to a minimum. They went closest to an equaliser when a 20-yard free-kick sailed over the wall and Max but came back off the bar before eventually being hacked clear.
Bradley also made an important stop when Max found himself in no man’s land and a visiting player tried his luck from distance.
Callum was lively on the right flank in the first half and anchored the midfield well in the second to complete an impressive all-round display.
Brandon M fired just wide after a fine turn on the halfway line earned him a clear run on goal but the Colts gave themselves some breathing space when the ball fell to George following a melee in the box and he hammered it high into the net.
Pewsey continued to play at a high tempo and the Colts were never comfortable, with Max clawing one long-range effort away from the top corner.
But they made sure of the points when an incisive through ball from Callum found the predatory George and he rounded the keeper to score his second of the day.
MOM: Bradley.
