Saints extend winning run after early scare

Home » Latest News » Saints extend winning run after e

Another good victory from Audlem Saints Under 8s football team- but not before a scare! The game on Sunday (Vs Betley Yellow) was less than 30 secs old when Saints conceded a goal. They recovered some composure but couldn't break down the well organised Betley defence. Eventually, a good long range effort eluded the Betley keeper and the scores were levelled. The final 10 minute period started with the scores level at 1-1 but what could have been a tense finish was avoided by three quick Audlem goals to settle the match 4-1.

Saints have now played 9, won 8 and drawn 1. A remarkable statistic is that in those nine games they have conceded only 6 goals. With each game lasting 30 minutes, they only concede a goal, on average, every 45 minutes. That is a remarkable record for a team of 8 year olds who take it in turns to be the goalkeeper!

Next week, Audlem play Betley Blue, kick off 11.15.

The carpenter was Bob Williams, and his main job was to do woodwork repairs to the locks in Audlem and Adderley flights. The date...
