Under-14s put rivals to the sword in Newham League
Manor Youth under-14s romped to a 10-0 win over Barkingside Sports Academy in their latest Newham League outing.
It was a fifth successive win for Manor, who dominated from start to finish and were 2-0 up inside six minutes.
Taher Mahmood opened the scoring with a left-footed shot from just inside the box after being played in by winger Shafiiq Shipkoylee and minutes later it was 2-0 after a great move between Taher Mahmood, Shipkoylee and Osman Rahman, which was finished off by midfielder Mahatir Mohammed.
Barkingside tried to fight back, but Manor kept their discipline and continued to play some wonderful football with left-back Danny McGuiness’s pace and power proving too much.
Accelerating forward and playing quick one–twos with Nashwaan Syed, McGuiness crossed for Hamza Yunus to score with a powerful header.
Nashwaan Syed saw his lob hit the crossbar, as captain Abaan Patel and Yusuf Kawser came to the rescue every time in defence to deny Barkingside any reply.
Midfielders Mohammed and Mahmood were always quick to regain possession and quickly attack and the latter got his second of the game after being played in by Osman Rahman, firing into the roof of the net.
Barkingside threatened briefly at the start of the second half and almost scored as Manor keeper Sahil Jaghtowal came off his line, but captain Patel came to the rescue to clear off the line.
Yunus then found Shipkoylee in space and his skilful cross found Mahmood, who controlled the ball and scored with an overhead kick to complete his hat-trick.
Substitute Mohammed Naim came on midway through the second half and made an immediate impact as his tackles and passes contributed to further goals.
Shipkoylee’s brilliant cross was converted by Naim for the sixth Manor goal, with Yunus and Shipkoylee then combining to set him up again to make it 7-0.
Juned Ahmed and Mohammed added further goals, assisted by Shipkoylee, who then worked his way upfield and cut inside before scoring the 10th and final goal of the game.
Shipkoylee was named man of the match after claiming a goal and five assits and said: “We are doing really well as a team. We were so solid because we worked together as one, I am so proud of the way we all played and hopefully we can continue this form as we close in on the title,”
Manager Hafiz Ahmed added: “We are improving so much as a team and that is all down to the hard work of our boys.
“We still have some very important games ahead and our focus now is on continuing our current form.”
Manor take on Newham Panthers at Wanstead Flats in their next game on Saturday.
