GOSLING Youth Under-13s won two competitive league games in the space of four days last week.

The WGC side gained maximum points against title-chasing Wheathampstead Wanderers and then local rivals Welwyn Pegasus Skys.

Gosling started the game against Wheathampstead at an incredible pace and soon punished their opponents.

Ben Lanza played a through ball for Liam Catchpole to convert and shortly after Ned Birss set up Gosling's top scorer Josh Eckley for the second.

Wheathampstead piled on the pressure at the start of the second half but Gosling's defence refused to buckle.

And with man of the match Thomas Westwood in inspired form in goal, Gosling stood firm for a 2-0 victory.

Gosling's second game of the week against Welwyn Pegasus was much tighter.

They again led 2-0 at half-time as first Eckley and then Birss found the net following some excellent all-round team play that had opened up the Pegasus defence.

Man of the match Mitchell Taylor-Brooks tormented Pegasus throughout the game and Gosling looked to have secured the points but an opportunist strike from Welwyn resulted in a nervous final 15 minutes.

But Gosling remained calm under pressure and recorded their second win in four days which guarantees at least third spot this season and leaves them with an outside chance for the title itself.
