The U14 boys team travelled for a friendly at Salisbury on Sunday with a squad of 12 including 2 goalkeepers  Hal Cross and Aaron Welch who played a half each in goal and a half as an outfield player and in the latter both, in what must be a first,  scored a goal each in a comfortable 3 -1 victory.

The Romsey team started started strongly, with Matt Rowland and Robert Williams in central midfield dominating the game and quickly caused problems in the Salisbury D and when a loose ball fell to Welch he turned and hit it hard into the bottom corner for a debut goal. The rest of the first half was mainly one way traffic with a lot of attacks coming from the marauding right back Sam Green who had a fine game. Whenever Salisbury did attack the defence of George Forgan, Thomas Edwards and Jamie Sanderson stood firm although Cross was called upon to make a couple of fine saves.

Following a rapid half time change of kit Welch and Cross swapped positions and the new Romsey Keeper was quickly called into action as Salisbury attacked from the start and quickly scored an equaliser from a penalty corner. However that was the last of  the Salisbury attacks as conceding a goal galvanised the whole team who moved up through the gears to score 2 goals through Cross and Morgan Robertson who was making his debut when stepping up from the Under 12s.

The pace of Archie Attwood and  Matt Loveday on the wings coupled with quick interchange of passing was at times a joy to watch and the victory meant that the U14s remain unbeaten this Season.
