LEMSFORD Youth Under-15s got back to winning ways on Sunday by beating Cheshunt Youth 1-0 away.

After two very disappointing performances, Lemsford made changes and were rewarded with their first clean sheet of the season.

Chris Gann came in at centre back alongside the ever-dependable Harlan Davies, with Andrew Carr moving to left back and Adam Hinton on the right.

They kept the opposition strikers quiet for nearly all the game and when they did break through, Bradley Seal in goal was unbeatable.

At the other end, Lemsford were also struggling to create any meaningful chances and when they did, the Cheshunt goalkeeper was in top form.

The game looked to be heading for a goalless draw with very little goalmouth action until midway through the second half.

The hard-working George Brown created a chance on his own to break the deadlock.

He chased and harried the opposition defence into a mistake on the edge of their penalty area.

Brown coolly slotted the ball home for the only goal of the game.

The win leaves Lemsford fourth in the Mid Herts Rural Minors League Premier Division.
