Epworth Colts’ under-14s made it two wins out of two against a physical Messingham Juniors side.

Colts took the lead when a precise cross from Bobby Foster was stroked into the net by strike partner Richie Burdett. A second followed as Cam Young struck a fine effort from the edge of the area after superb work from Ben Carson.

Colts got a third just before half time with Jordan Jenkinson volleying high into the net from 20 yards.

Messingham pulled a goal back when a long range punt bamboozled ‘keeper George Moore. But Colts restored their three goal advantage when a corner from man of the match Ciaran Hazel was met by the head of Jenkinson.

A brilliant point blank save from Moore saw the Colts come away with a well-earned 4-1 victory.
