Excellent win for our U13 Blues in County Cup

Tiptree Jobserve U13s Blues embarked on their U13 Cordell Essex County Cup campaign by welcoming Chigwell Colts to Warriors Rest.

The game began frantically, with both sides still familiarising themselves with the 11v11 format. Colts went close with a shot from distance which was dealt with comfortably by YATES. Jobserve began to dominate the ball, probing the Colts goal, however against the run of play Chigwell took the lead with a looping header from their first corner. After the goal, Jobserve reacted positively and levelled the scoring through a wonder strike from BUDA, striking home a free kick from 25 yards out minutes before half time.

Jobserve began the second half dictating the play, enjoying long passages of possession however without troubling the Colts goal, until a mix up between the Colts goalkeeper, defender enabled TAPE to roll into an empty net. Following the goal, the game became nervy with chances coming at both ends, however Jobserve killed off the tie with the crucial third goal when EJIONYE finished from outside the area following good play from TAYLOR. Immediately Jobserve attacked again and added a fourth, with WINFIELD jinking passed two Colts defenders before firing home on his weak foot. In the final minutes MASSENHOVE rounded off the tie with an exquisite chip over the goalkeeper and into the far corner.

A terrific result ensures Jobserve progress to the next round, where they will be searching to extend their journey in the County Cup. Tiptree Jobserve Blues U13s welcome Layer Colts on Sunday 6th October in the next round.

Well done boys!
