Corringham Athletic 2 Jays Youth 4
JAYS YOUTH under-18s powered past Corringham Athletic and into the final of the Thundermite League Cup.
Jays started slowly on a freezing cold, wet and windy afternoon and soon found themselves 2-0 down, but that early reverse stunned them into action.
Agah opened the Jays account with a great goal and 10 minutes later Donald netted with a free-kick.
The momentum was with Jays and Quinn popped up to give them a 3-2 lead with a great run and fine strike.
The second half saw Jays dominate large periods and show why they are league leaders, but Corringham played some good football at times too, making for an intriguing battle.
Although it was an end-to-end game, man of the match Donald stole the ball, ran down the right, and crossed for Quinn to fire the fourth goal.
Jays Youth: Fitzgerald, Breedon, Mansbridge, Sheridan, Fuller, Agah, Duggan, O'Driscoll, Donald, Courtney, Drake, Quinn, Hazle, Steadman.
UPR 4 Dagenham United 1
THESE teams have played each other four times this season and three of the games have been very close but, sadly for Dagenham United under-12s, this was not.
On a windy, wet Brettons Farm, UPR warmed up for their cup final with a strong display, dominating the game from start to finish.
Dagenham did try to get back in the game and new player Stefan impressed in midfield with several good touches and well-placed passes. Rooke again worked hard and tried to set up the play, only to be stopped by a hard-working UPR defensive unit.
By the end Dagenham had to concede that they were beaten by the better side.
Dagenham United: Kelly, Embleton, Gouveia, S Moran, L Moran, Stuart, Nicholls, Rooke, Bojaj, Gunnell, Durban, Monty, Stefan, Sielele, Scotcher.
Aldborough 2 Elim United 4
ELIM UNITED under-15s swept past Aldborough in awesome style to claim the runners-up spot in the division.
Moses Kamanda netted a brilliant hat-trick while Emmanuel Johnson also struck in impressive fashion as his team strolled to a memorable win.
