Cirencester Town U13s beat Worcester City U13s in an excellent Nerf Junior Premier League match

Nerf Junior Premier League

Cirencester Town U13s 4 - 2 Worcester City U13s

Ciren welcomed Worcester City to the Corinium on a bright beautiful sunny, but crisp morning, ideal football conditions for the day's JPL League clash.

With Worcester City fresh from their JPL cup win over West Brom Colts, and Ciren on a decent run since September, all was set for a highly competitive game, and it did not disappoint!

Ciren were quickly into their stride, putting together a series of neat passing moves and pressing Worcester high up the field to win back possession

The first reward came for this when Skipper Rhys Sarson finished of another free flowing move with a neat shot to beat the keeper, 1-0.

Worcester got back in the game against the run of play when Louis Smith scored to make it 1-1 on 8 minutes.

Ciren had the majority of possession and territory in these early exchanges which got its further reward with a fine long range effort from Sarson again to make the score 2-1.

Worcester began to get a toe hold in the game towards the end of Q1, but a fast counter attack resulted in Adam Thorn being set free and in on goal. He took his chance calmly with the minimum of fuss, 3-1 at the end of Q1.

The next 2 quarters were what the JPL is all about. Worcester City showed why they have such a good record and fought their way back into the game, and put Ciren under sustained long periods of pressure. However great credit must go to Ciren's resilience and organisation as a group as they held off wave after wave of Worcester pressure, with Keeper Ryan Welsman Clarke only called upon a couple of times to make excellent saves.

During this period of the match Ciren played mainly on the counter, and great midfield play created a number of chances on what seemed a charmed Worcester goal as Adam Thorn, Xavi Diaz Butcher, and Tyrhys Mifsud all went close, but the fourth goal just would not come.

Final ¼ began and soon developed into an end to end affair. Worcester were the first to break through with a great long range free kick from the ever impressive Daniel Sutton, 3-2 on 66 minutes and the Ciren nerves began to twitch.

For the next 5 -10 minutes Worcester pushed so hard for the equaliser, but again Ciren's defence and organisation held firm. Then finally a counter attack again prompted by Sarson set Adam Thorn free, first shot saved, he followed up to slot home, 4-2 and 8 minutes left.

For the remainder of the game Worcester kept plugging away as you would expect from a team of their quality, but Ciren were more than equal to everything that was thrown at them and could have scored again in the dying embers as chances came and went.

In the end a well-deserved 4-2 win for Ciren against a quality side who showed great, heart, skill, and courage throughout. As for Ciren, a great all round team performance on a day when they were going to be asked questions, and they found deep within themselves the answers.

A terrific game of JPL football!
