Under 14's Match Reports
SUN 14th MARCH 2010 OAKSEY - 1; CROFT JUNIORS; 5
Oaksey’s poor form continued with another home defeat. An evenly-matched first half with little sight of goal for either side. Then Oaksey’s Luke Nixon sped down the left wing dodged a couple of tackles and slipped the ball home to give Oaksey a narrow lead at half-time.
SUN 21st MARCH 2010 OAKSEY - 2; NORTHERN LIGHTS S; 0
A gritty display by the home side put Oaksey’s recent bad run to rest. From the start Oaksey were first to every ball as they dominated midfield. But an early goal was elusive although Lewis Beattie’s free kick went close. Northern Lights were quick on the break and keeper James Gillespie had to make some smart saves.
SUN 7th MARCH 2010 OAKSEY - 0; WANBOROUGH JUNIORS - 6
Table-toppers Oaksey crashed to their worst defeat of the season against a determined Wanborough side. An in-swinging corner fooled both defence and keeper James Gillespie as the visitors took an early lead. Hesitant defending and an own-goal gifted two more and the Oaksey heads dropped. By half time they were down 0-4.
Northern Lights 0 : Oaksey 14
Oaksey put their recent defeat behind them with this commanding win. Luke Nixon opened the scoring with a powerful shot from a corner. Then Floyd Magson’s header and an own goal made it three goals from three corners. Jack Bayliss jinked through to make it 0-4 at the break to the visitors. In the second half Oaksey turned on the style. Great strikes from outside the area by Sean Pammen and Lewis Beattie were the pick of the bunch as Pammen & Nixon bagged hat-tricks. Alex Thomas weighed in with a brace and the outstanding Tom Fell dribbled all the way from the half way line for a fine individual effort.
SUN 7th Feb 2010 OAKSEY - 6; MALMESBURY YOUTH - 0
A frustrating first half for the home side saw Alex Thomas hit the post and have a goal disallowed for offside. But after going in goal-less, Oaksey stormed back in the second half as captain Sean Pammen headed in from a Jack Bayliss corner. Then Bayliss himself battled through for a fine second before another of his corners met a bullet header from Thomas. The industrious Floyd Magson won the midfield battle to set up a second for Bayliss and Oaksey’s fourth. Then Luke Nixon pounced on a loose ball to thump high into the net. Thomas rounded things off with a powerful run presenting Ed Blogg with a sixth for the home side.
SUN 17th Jan 2010 OAKSEY - 5; PENHILL KNIGHTS - 1
For this first win of the decade, Oaksey made heavy weather on a sluggish pitch against depleted opposition. Penhill went ahead first as the home side struggled against the offside trap. Then Lewis Beattie set up Jack Bayliss for the equaliser before Luke Nixon found Marc McCouig who thumped home. 2-1 at the break.
SUN 22nd NOV 2009 CROFT JUNIOR B - 3; OAKSEY – 4
In rain-swept conditions, Croft’s smallest player scored first past a sleepy Oaksey defence. But the visitors soon moved into gear and a razor-sharp pass from Jack Bayliss fell to Alex Thomas to slot sweetly home. Then Luke Nixon weaved past Croft’s defence and set up Jack Priestnall to give Oaksey a 2-1 lead at the break.
SUN 18th Oct 2009 MALMESBURY - 1; OAKSEY – 4
Oaksey’s power play bossed the first half, restricting the home side to long-range efforts. Luke Nixon muscled into the area to tee up Lewis Beattie for 0-1. Jack Bayliss was gritty in midfield and set up Ryan Adams for a second before Adams himself charged through making it 0-3 at the half.
SUN 11th Oct 2009 OAKSEY - 4; HIGHWORTH TOWN JUNIORS - 2
Skilful Oaksey beat a team from the league above in a pulsating cup clash. Luke Nixon set free Ryan Adams whose fierce shot skimmed the bar. Against the run of play Highworth took the lead with a fine solo effort. Nixon was bundled over in the area and Jack Priestnall put away the resulting penalty.
SUN 04th Oct 2009 OAKSEY - 3; KINGSHILL SC – 3
Oaksey keeper James Gillespie kept his team in the first half of a disjointed display with three terrific diving saves. But the home defence still gifted a scrambled goal to Kingshill for a 0-1 lead at the half. Despite a reshuffle, poor defending again let the visitors grab a goal for 0-2.
