Under 10 Knock Out Cup Quarter Finals: Coventry Jaguar Youth reached their second cup semi final of the season with a 3-0 defeat of Binley Woods. The Woods played their full part in the match, hitting an upright but it was the Jaguar who coped with the blustery conditions. A through ball laid on by Louis Pittaway opened up the Binley defence for Robert Tressler to score the first goal. Joe Price made it 2-0 with Tressler grabbing the third after good work by Gurpreet Singh Due. Ernesford Dynamos just edged past Finham Park Rangers 1-0 in a very competitive game, the winning goal being scored by James Formstone ten seconds from the end of the game. George Davison hit the Ernesford upright direct from a corner kick with Jack Dobson putting a shot just wide at the other end before Finham’s’ Matthew Corrigan saw his shot well saved. Defences were very much to the fore in the second half and the only goal finally arrived following a corner kick by Finham. The ball was cleared upfield to Formstone who took his time to slot the ball past the despairing dive of Gareth Price for the only goal of the game. Caludon Youth made a bright start to their tie with Christ the King, Shaun Russell putting them in front after only ten minutes. The kings began to get to grips with the wind and James Ritson and Lewis Martin both saw efforts bounce back off of an upright before an equaliser arrived courtesy of the head of a Caludon defender. Jamie Green in the Kings goal then pulled of a flying save, turning a shot around a post to keep the scores even at half time. In the second half, Taylor McGregor put Christ the King ahead but the midfield of Jack Stephenson, William Huckvale and Connor Hennessey were kept busy by a Caludon side that would not give up and it needed a second goal with an excellent McGregor finish to seal a place in the semi finals for Christ the King. Chapelfields Colts finally came out on top against Kenilworth Wardens in a keenly contested cup tie. The game was a credit to all concerned in it and Chapelfields took the win 1-0 when Tom O’Callaghan scored midway through the second half.
