Results Round-up 24/02
Our U8s took on Knaresborough today in very friendly and well spirited games this morning. 2 1-1 draws, a 2-1 defeat and an excellent 5-2 victory which included some of the best football the lads have played all season. Motm went to Josh, Callum, Abhik and Taylor.
Our under 14s managed to secure all 3 points against a determined Ripon team. And it took 2 superb strikes from Jack Atkinson - one in each half - to seal the victory. Ripon played some very neat football and their performance doesn't reflect their league position. Whinmoor struggled to cope with a Ripon side keen to show that their league position doesn't reflect their ability, however their passing game fizzled out in front of goal. A long range effort rebounded off the bar and a swift counter attackh caught the visitors off guard resulting in Jack Atkinsons first strike nestling in the top corner. A change at half time saw Matthew Jones go in goal and pulling off a wonder save from Ripons dangerous #10. Whinmoor contained the Ripon's huff n puff and 10mins from time a free kick saw the 2nd screamer from Jack Akinson fly into the roof of the net. We had two strong home league debuts from Dan and Lucus. A clean sheet at the back was well earned. MOTM Jack Atkinson.

Our under 13s posted probably their most impressive result of the season after handing Yorkshire Amateurs a bit of a pasting in the cup in their own back yard. Max Johnson started the ball rolling after 10 minutes, Cameron Liddell adding the second with a 30 yard screamer just before the break. Lee Davis finished off a fantastic team move to make it three, before Kyle Farrar chipped the keeper to round off a superb 4-0 win. Bailey Mannion receiving the man of the match award amidst some stiff competition.
The under 17s won their first game of the year by beating title contenders Nidd 3-2. Whinmoor forced an own goal from Joe Welsh's free kick after only 7 minutes, and following some excellent defending (helped by some hilarious misses) Jordan Whitaker bent his corner straight into the net just before the interval. A superb individual run by Cameron Wallace finished with him sliding the ball past the keeper to make it three on the hour. Nidd fought back, and got one back with 20 minutes left, and their second with the last kick of the game, but Whinmoor deserved all three points. James Neale took the man of the match with a commanding performance between the sticks.

Whinmoor under 9s continued the recent run with a comprehensive win at Wetherby, with the lads getting absolutely caked in mud during a 5-0 and 4-0 win. Noah Rayner notched a couple in the first game, with Ethan Hooks, James Williams-Dustan and George Donaghy scoring the others, whilst in the second game two each from Bradley Motin and Jacob Anderson closed the game out, followed by a well earned soak in the bath for all of them!
Our under 13s showed great fighting spirit today to come back from 3 down away at Knaresborough. The turning point came when Josh saved a penalty, and Whinmoor went from strength to strength with Max Johnson netting twice, and Cam Liddell getting the equaliser.

Results Round-up 3/02
A couple of great results today - our under 9s beat Lawnswood in the cup quarter-final 3-0 and 2-0, their unlucky opponents finding themselves on the end of goals from Noah Rayner and James Williams Dustan 2 in one game and Cian Flanaghan and Jacob Anderson scoring in the other.
In the second round of games, Whinmoor won 2-0 with another brace from James Williams-Dustan and 7-3 in a thrilling end-to-end game, with Whinmoor scoring through George Donaghey, John-Paul Reynard (2), Cian Flanaghan (2), Jacob Anderson and Mason Midgley. Everyone contributed superbly to the games but Mason Midgley and Noah Rayner just did enough to walk off with the man of the match awards.
Following on from that, our under 13s had a fine 2-1 away cup win at Pannal Predators, with Cam Liddell scoring both, and Max LJohnson and Kieran Ward having grate games. The Pannal keeper deserves special mention, because, according to shy, quietly spoken manager Mark Johnson (only kidding!), if it hadn't been for him, Whinmoor could have had a hatful.
