Match Report


A glorious Autumn morning saw AFC Worthing Youth Stars take on Whyke United.  The Stars started on the front foot attacking straight from the kick off and winning a corner in the 1st minute.  However, Whyke also showed early on , their intentions, with Nathaniel saving well in a one v one situation. Whyke took the lead on 8 minutes as they counter attacked and slotted the ball past Nathaniel.  The goal saw Whyke’s confidence grow and they had several shots saved by our keeper.  Wesley & Lloyd were playing well on the wings, but could not get passed the Whyke defence.  On 20 minutes Josh B was introduced into the game and on 24 minutes scored the equaliser as he ghosted around the back following a corner from Matt, half time 1-1.

The second half continued with Whyke pressing, Oli & Henry having to defend resolutely and then distributing the ball to Lloyd & Josh B on the wings.  On 35 minutes Whyke regained the lead.  Nonetheless the Stars kept working hard, Josh B was starting to get more of the ball on the right and his runs down the wing were causing Whyke problems.  On one such attack Josh B feed Matt, who’s cross was chested and then toe poked home by Lloyd.  The Stars started to press and Matt, Charlie G and Wesley were all unlucky not to score.  On 51 minutes the Stars took the lead, Matt played the ball through to Josh B whose cross was slotted home by Jack.  The referee consulted the linesman about an off-side flag, however after an agonising minute it was decided the goal stood!! Now with the lead the Stars attacked, but Josh S, Oli & Henry remained resolute at the back.  On 58 minutes Matt received the ball straight from the goal kick, rounded the keeper and slotted the ball home, full time 4-2.


The effort today from everybody was 100%, even though they were playing in either different, or not their favourite positions.  We showed determination to come back from a goal down twice and also that when we keep our positions and pass the ball that we are a force to be reckoned with.

Man of the Match – Josh B, a fantastic game today Josh well done.
