WELHAM Warriors Under-13s secured four points in a double header against Cuffley Youth.

The games were made up of four 22-minute halves and Warriors knew it was going to be a tough two games.

Warriors striker Bailey Rose secured the first goal within the first 10 seconds of the game and gave his side a much-needed lead.

Cuffley battled hard and Warriors were able to hold them off with some great saves from their stand-in keeper Andrew Simmons.

Aaron Carpenter netted the second goal for Warriors to leave them 2-0 up at half-time.

Cuffley came back determined in the second half and pulled one goal back just before the final whistle.

The second match followed a similar pattern with Warriors' Paul Reilly finding the back of the next in the first few minutes.

Welham defenders Declan Mcalinden and George Mills were on the ball but Cuffley managed to slip past and equal the score at 1-1.

Both teams battled in the last half of the game but neither team could find the winning goal.

It was a brave battle by both teams but Warriors were lucky to be awarded the four points.
