Under 8s BLUE  - Mid-Staffs Junior Football League

MATCH 1 - Rocester Elkes Eagles Blue 2 Rocester Elkes Eagles Red 0

Eagles had to play each other in the League Cup at penkridge on a wet and windy morning.

Blues kicked down the slope with the wind behind them and were soon attacking the reds goal.

Will Hulme played in goal for the reds and was the busiest on the pitch, a goal mouth scramble led to the first goal when Daniel Clayton poked the ball home.

Corey McLaughlin scored the next goal from five yards when played in by Laurence Wootton.

No more goals were scored and  2-0 was a fair result in the end.

MATCH 2 - Rocester Elkes Eagles Blue 3 Berkswich 0

Eagles played berkswich and from the kick off  were never troubled.

Three goals in the first half sealed the win with Corey McLaughlin, Joshua Berry and Jonathan Duckworth again on the score sheet.

Surprisingly no goals were scored when kicking downhill with the wind in the second half, and goalkeeper Gabriel Wild didn't have a thing to do.

This team not playing to their full potential at the moment but when they do I can see a bag full of goals.

The Team: Gabriel Wild, Ed Farnley, Joshua Berry, Jonathan Duckworth, Harley Turner, Corey Mclaughlin, Laurence Wootton, Daniel Clayton.

Man Of The Match; Joshua Berry
