Jaguars’ run of victories come to an end

Matlock Town Juniors Jaguars 0 Somersall Blues u15s 3

The Jaguars’ winning run came to an end at Causeway Lane at the weekend against a strong and fast Somersall outfit.

The home side soaked up constant pressure in the first half with Harry Goodman, who was once again excellent, producing a string of saves to keep the visitors at bay.

Shaun Byard worked tirelessly in an attacking midfield role and went closest for Matlock but, shortly before the break, Goodman was finally undone after a double save resulted in a Somersall forward reacting quickest to the rebound.

It was more of the same in the second half, with two fine finishes increasing the lead while, on a rare foray, Charlie Hatcliffe found himself clear from Elliott Fletcher’s free kick, only to find the keeper equal to the task.

Liam Fisher and Will Charlton battled well against the pacy forwards but it was not to be the Jaguars’ day.

n Matlock Town Jaguars u15s are looking for players to strengthen their squad.

Players of all abilities are welcome to come for a trial. The team trains on Tuesdays from 7.30pm–8.30pm on the ATP at Cavendish Fields, Matlock.
