The u14s first match of the season brought Bradford as visitors to Whitley. A very tight competitive match ended up in a 5-2 win to Bradford.
Bradford went ahead in the game, after which Whitley went ahead 2-1 through goals of Ben Wood and Ollie Jardine. At the end of the second period Bradford went ahead 4-2. Whitley put a lot of pressure on and were unlucky not to score when Ben Wood hit the crossbar. In the end it wasn’t meant to be and Bradford scored 5-2 in the dying seconds of the game with an empty net goal.
Overall it was an encouraging performance with all players working very hard. Spirit of the Game went to Nathan Hartley.
