Calder Valley FC Claim Historic Win

Newly established Calder Valley FC claimed their first ever victory tonight at the expense of local rivals Royal Oak Rangers in a 9-6 thriller. The team, playing in only their fourth competitive 5-A-Side fixture upset the odds after 3 straight, disastrous defeats, but after a positive showing tonight against an experienced outfit it seems as though the boys are finally on the up!

Zacc Salter Reports...

The game was level for only 2 minutes before Royal Oak Rangers opened their account for the evening, action was immediately taken though as Zacc Salter was replaced by departing Max Wartelle and Calder drew level shortly after through a Jack Gormley goal. A flurry of chances and post hits followed, the ball must have hit Royal Oak Rangers' post about 3 or 4 times in the space of 2 minutes. Aidan Clegg was then brought off for Salter and there were chances and goals at each end. At half time Calder Valley FC lead 4-3 thanks to goals from Eli Hey and a Gormley trebble.

James Oliver started the second half in goal replacing Calum Paramor, with Clegg also dropping to the bench. At the second half kickoff there was an immediate equaliser, but this was no trouble for Calder Valley who quickly managed to regain the lead again through Hey. There were many chances thereafter and goals galore through Salter, Gormley and Hey, not to mention a frustrating disallowed goal for Salter which saw the game end at a brilliant 9-6, lifting the team spirits for Valley who face top of the league FC Himmat next week.

Team: Calum Paramor, Zacc Salter, Aidan Clegg, Jack Gormley, Eli Hey,
Subs: Max Wartelle, James Oliver
