YOUNG footballers from Panshanger paid tribute to former club colleague Mathew Blease when they tackled Wheathampstead Tigers at the weekend.

Whites Under-12s wore black armbands and held a minute's silence for the Panshanger Yellows U14 player who tragically died earlier this month.

The WGC boys got back to winning ways with a 4-0 victory in their first football match in over a month.

Bailey Rose played well in midfield and was able to feed the ball through to Panshanger striker Reuben Hill for the first goal of the match.

Wheathampstead were stopped by Panshanger's defence every time they attempted to attack the Whites' goal.

Rhys Monger made it 2-0 at the beginning of the second half and the Tigers were thwarted in reply by Whites goalkeeper Joseph Bryne.

Once Hill had secured his second of the game, Panshanger kept up the pressure and were rewarded with a fourth goal by Matt Pisani to bank the Mid Herts Rural Minors Division Two points.
