Weekend Round Up - 5th Feb 2022

Under 18s

Elburton Villa U18 7 - 1 Torpoint Athletic U18

Villa came into this cup QF with a depleted squad for the second week in a row, with 5 of the squad still on the sidelines with injuries and 2 having to pull out late with work commitments. However, Villa started strong with 1st teamer Adam MacPherson showing composure to slot home after 4 minutes to put Villa 1-0 up. This was a theme that continued throughout the 1st half, with MacPherson adding to his tally another 4 times. Amongst MacPherson’s goal glut a rare defensive error saw Torpoint pounce to score what would be their only consolation goal of the game to make the score 5-1 at halftime.

An early injury to Will Hardiman in the first 10 minutes of the game meant that Villa played 80 minutes of the game with the bare XI players on what was by the 2nd half a very sticky and heavy pitch. The effects of which were reflected in a laboured and at times messy 2nd half. However, it was a half that Villa would win 2-0, one of which saw MacPherson score his 6th of the game finishing a well worked move from Ky Maloney’s cross from the right side.

The game was rounded off nicely by Jake Bouch (nephew of Villa Legend’s Tony) chesting down a Torpoint clearance and hammering home a dipping effort from 25 yards to leave the final score 7-1 to the home side.

Under 15s

Elburton Villa U15 2 - 1 Hunter District U15

Continuing the depleted theme our U15s pulled off a miraculous result beating 2nd in the league Hunter District despite only being able to field 10 men. With 4 regulars away at Argyle v Chelsea (one of which was our GK), the boys showed fantastic work rate and desire to come away with the points thanks to two goals from Alper Eroglu.

Under 15s Girls

Plympton Ath U15s 5 - 0 Elburton Villa U15s

Our U15s girls put up a spirited display despite coming away from Top of the League Plympton empty handed. However this was a much improved display against the team with a 100% record at the top and showed how much progress the girls are making compared to their earlier result.

Under 13s

Elburton Villa U13s 4 - 2 Manstow U13s

Our Under 13s also pulled off a result against all odds despite only fielding 9 players! The team have shown remarkable commitment to ensure their last two games have been played whilst missing several unavailable players.
