Grantham Town U15's v York City
Grantham Town U15's hosted York City Academy at the Meres on Saturday 19th January.
Both teams started well but York took the upper hand after Grantham conceded a penalty on 15 minutes which was confidently converted.
York then made it 2-0 shortly after the start of the 2nd quarter when they broke away down the left wing and crossed for the York striker to finish first time beating Grantham's keeper low to his right. Grantham responded well though and started to battle with more success in mid field which resulted in York conceding a free kick half way inside their half on 30 minutes. Jake Gibbons swung the free kick in to the York penalty area and Jaydon Divine headed confidently over the York keeper to make it 1-2. Both teams played some attractive football and Nathan Kettle came close to levelling the scores with a shot from the edge of the box just before half time. Grantham really need to get the next goal but York scored again on 49 minutes when they once again crossed in from the left and finished well. Grantham battled on and started to create more chances but a missed placed pass was intercepted by York on 65 minutes and the resulting cross caught Grantham's keeper off his line and the ball looped over his head into the goal making the score 1-4. Grantham pushed on to reduce the deficit but the score remained at 1-4 at full time.
