A round-up of the latest matches involving Valence United teams

Valence United under-18s made it through to the third round of the Peter Coote Cup with a 2-0 win at Crown & Manor.

The hosts got their passing game going early on with plenty of possession, but Valence kept their structure and limited Crown to very little in the way of chances.

After 20 minutes, Rob Carvalho picked up the ball around 30 yards out and carried it forward, before unleashing an unstoppable shot that flew past the Crown keeper.

The rest of the half was played in much the same manner, with Crown looking comfortable in possession and Valence seeming equally adept in defence.

With 60 minutes played, a long goal kick was flicked on by Jack Jones in the path Alan Boakye, who volleyed home from 25 yards to double Valence’s lead.

Chasing the game, Crown abandoned their passing style in the hope of rescuing the situation, but were unable to trouble the Valence defence as the visitors held on.

Valence: Griggs, Quinn, Field, Webb, Buckland, Barca, Carvalho, Boakye, Jones, Delaney, Sayer. Subs: Mizon, Nelson, Morgan, Akyena.

• A late winner from Fakhar Ahmed saw Valence United under-14s win 2-1 on their trip to their Harold Hill Whites rivals.

The deadlock was broken following a corner after great work down the wing by Daniel Wendson.

The Valence player’s trickery proved too much for Whites to handle, with Wendson delivering a teasing cross for Chris Chikumbindi to head home.

Harold Hill pressed hard in search of an equaliser, but United held firm to take their 1-0 lead into half time.

The start of the second period started similar to how the first half ended, with Whites knocking on the door, but Valence keeper Raden Danijoli kept was doing well between the sticks.

Though Danijolli was eventually beaten as Harold Hill drew level, Valence found a late winner when Ahmed tucked home from close range after Mason Stimon’s free kick was parried.

Valence: Danijolli, Doherty, Delaney, Orija, Webb, Ahmed, Egoruvwe, Wendson, Stimon, Chikumbindi, Campbell. Subs: Sankauskas, Sharma, Dempsey.
