There was lots of action from Aycliffe Juniors again this weekend with games in both league and cup…
• The under 10’s Russell Foster league team had a 4-2 win against Shotton Colts Reds.
Aycliffe conceded first and could not break Shotton down before half time.
In the second half Aycliffe took the game to Shotton and Bo volleyed home the equaliser after a good ball from Evan.
Straight from the kick off Bo got his second after finishing off Taylor’s pass.
This lead was extended, as the team grew in confidence, with goals from Taylor and Ollie, a late Shotton goal ended the game in a 4-2 Aycliffe win.
