Oakwood Youth 5 - Bracknell Town 2

Oakwood's double day

sponsored by Savvy Accountancy Solutions 


Oakwood Youth's Under 15's made it a double day for the club by clinching the Under 15's cup a couple of hours after their Under 14's won their cup. 


It was Bracknell who opened the scoring when Robbie Hands put in a penetrating run and gave 'keeper Kai Phillips no chance with a close range shot. Oakwood came back almost immediately when Owen Pelham converted a good move with a touch at the near post which left 'keeper Will Cornwall wrong-footed (6th minute).


A penalty converted by Jadon Strand in the 11th minute nudged Oakwood into the lead and the same player put them further ahead in the 18th minute after he sliced through the Bracknell defence.


Oakwood's dominance continued as Bracknell struggled to combat their flowing football and they scored their fourth goal in the 21st minute with a great strike from a free kick by Harvey Thomas.


Bracknell had a chance to cut the lead right on half time but the ball was put over the bar.


Early in the second half Bracknell scored again this time through a melee of legs. This breakthrough gave Bracknell hope and for a period the Oakwood 'keeper was kept busy but he was well protected by his defenders. In the 85th minute a break by Jadon Strand at the other end clinched the cup for Oakwood with a fine shot which 'keeper Will Cornwall managed to get his hand too but the speed of the shot beat him.


The Player of the Match Award went to Oakwood's Owen Pelham.
