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.
