Match Report

AFC Rushden & Diamonds U16 vs Cradley - 21/12/2019

AFC Rushden & Diamonds U16s welcomed Cradley to Malcolm Arnold for the League Cup Fixture.

'Diamonds' started the game very brightly and took the lead on 6 Minutes with a Goal from in-form Ed Panter.  Although 'Diamonds' started strongly, Cradley enjoyed a fair share of First Half chances and could have led at Half Time but for two wonder saves from Home Goalkeeper (Harvey Clews).

The Half-Time Score = AFC Rushden & Diamonds 1 - Cradley 0.

After the break - it was 'Diamonds' that started strongly again - adding to their lead within a minute with a second from Ed Panter (41 Mins).  As the half progressed - the quality and effort from Cradley ensure that it remained a competitive fixture throughout.  However - it was 'Diamonds' that further increased their lead with a wonder strike from Pharrell Anderson and a good finish for a fourth from Ollie Page.

The Final Score = AFC Rushden & Diamonds 4 - Cradley 0.

At the end of a thoroughly enjoyable JPL Fixture - one sour note saw a nasty Neck / Back Injury to the Cradley Number 3 (Kyle).  Kyle had been fantastic throughout and was extremely unfortunate to get injured - he was arguably Man of the Match for Cradley.  Everyone at AFC Rushden & Diamonds wishes him a speedy recovery and all our very best wishes.  Special thanks also to the Cradley Parent (Sorry we didn't get your name) who helped to look after Kyle over a period of 2+Hours whilst waiting for an ambulance and also to the fantastic 'Diamonds' Physio (Juliette) for the same care.
