Codnor Boys U11s make it 12 from 12
Derby City League Division One
Codnor Boys U11s 9
Mickleover '95 0
THIS was only Codnor's second game of the new year and after a hard fought 1-0 win over Duffield a fortnight before, the Boys were in good form against a much improving Mickleover side.
The victory made it a very impressive 12 wins from 12 outings for the Boys.
Early goals from Tom Gillott and Alex Smith allowed Codnor to play some passing football from the start.
Three first half substitutions then made a big impression on the game with returning player Kyle Symons dancing through the defence and feeding Kallum Owen to finish low into the corner.
Gillott added his second and Codnor's fourth just before half time.
Second half goals from Danny Fields (2), Joe Noonan and captain Ollie Cox saw Codnor home without keeper Josh Chalmers having too much trouble with a hard working midfield of Josh Bee-Tong, George Johnson and Jamie Rigard allowing Joe Spray, Josh Bostock and Kieron Hale an easy morning in defence.
Derby City League U11s
Stanton Ilkeston 0
ADASC Tigers 6
ADASC travelled to Kirk Hallam on a fine sunny morning for their first league game of the new year and quickly took the lead.
Fine play down the right wing by Reece Rhodes resulted in his cross being turned into their own net by an Ilkeston defender.
Connor Rhodes was equal to his brother, crossing from the left for Kieran Flynn to get the second before captain Aaron Cope beat several opponents to hammer in the third.
Ilkeston were limited to few chances with the ADASC defence of Elter Sharpe, Harry Hurst, Connor Kerry and Liam Minkley first to every tackle.
Shivan Vallabh who kindly volunteered to cover for the ill Dan O' Neill seemed to enjoy playing in goal, keeping a clean sheet.
Connor Rhodes added a fourth before half time afer a good passing move with Kallum Stevens.
The introduction of Robbie Colclough and Isaac Vine resulted in another goal for the Tigers, Jonno Hunt firing past the stranded keeper.
Reece Rhodes wrapped up the game with the sixth and the man of the match award.
