Champions Chatteris overcome shaky start

Cambs and District Colts League, Division A

Burwell Tigers U16 0 Chatteris Town Youth FC U16 2

DEFENDING champions Chatteris had a shaky start to the season, not having trained all summer. All the injured players were back again and new signing Kieran Carter made his debut in the second half.

The first goal came after about 20 minutes, courtesy of a one-two between Luke Bailey and Adam Reditt, who pelted the ball into the net. Newly promoted Burwell never posed a real threat, but got a few chances, which were safely caught or went wide. Adam Reditt also led up to the second goal, as his shot was parried, but Asa Revell was at hand to score from the rebound with a low shot in the bottom corner. The score remained 2-0 until the end.
