U16 Boys 4 - 1 Woking U 16 Boys

  • U14 Boys A team v Woking 001

A hard fought fixture brightened a dull wet afternoon as Hawks and Woking U16s enjoyed a hugely entertaining game.

It was Woking who took the early initiative as their midfield took control and after 15 minutes took a deserved 1-0 lead. However James Edmiston rallied the troops and Laurie Cooke, Ed Wilkinson and James increased the tempo and pressed higher up the pitch.

A well worked move saw Ollie Dunn find space at the top of the D and his angled pass sett up Ray Prince for the first of his brace. Hawks continued to work the ball around well with Tom Murray, Ollie Doggett and Toby Maclachlan looking solid and finding their passing range.

Hawks secured a short corner after good work by Ed Wilkinson and a deflected shot by Maclachlan found the back of the net to make it 2-1.

At this point Woking lost concentration and Hawks enjoyed their best spell with all players looking composed and assured on the ball. With the vocal encouragement and presence of Johnny The Fox Hawks looked to have taken the upper hand.

However Woking were made of stern stuff and took control in the 2nd half and created problems but Roly Belton, Charlie Warner and Oscar Irvine supported the hard work of Phil Barnett and Ollie Dunn to enable 2 quick counter attack moves. Ray Prince drove superbly pass 3 tackles with 3D skills to make it 3-1 then Ed Wilkinson ghosted into the right channel and his shot/cross in the D was deflected in to make it 4-1.

At this point Woking showed their determination to stay in the game but allowed their concentration to slip though frustration and despite a couple of half chances and short corners Hawks saw the game out for the win.

The man of the match could have gone to a number of players with Ollie Doggett and Ray Prince the pick of the bunch. The brace by Prince earned hit the accolade.
