Chester-le-Street Under 8 Whites has no joy today. They started off brightly against an evenly matched team with chances flying at both ends. We tried a different setup today and perhaps were a little more open at the back but created lots of chances. Joel Mewes Reed was superb in goal and Jacob Lisle solid in an unfamiliar role at the back. We finished the first half 2 goals down but the lads did exactly what was asked of them and were unlucky. In the second half Finley Benek immediately pulled one back for the whites with a fine run but despite a close game in chances we finished 1-5 in an entertaining match.
