On Wednesday 17th October 2018, the U16 Football team travelled to Ruthin School for their first match of the season. It was a close, competitive game and we missed several chances in the first half, including a strong Ben Jones header, which hit the crossbar. Shortly before half-time, Cai Riley who was up for a corner opened the scoring for SDC.
During the second half, SDC had to withstand a lot of pressure from Ruthin and it was their turn to hit our crossbar. As Ruthin pushed forward, SDC hit them on the break with goals coming from substitute Seb Ko and team captain, Zander Strickett.
The final score was Ruthin School 0 St. David’s College 3.
There were lots of debuts and everyone played well but the man of the match for his goal and keeping a clean sheet in defence goes to Cai Riley.
We look forward for the ISA U16 Tournament held at Abbey Gate School on the 8th November.
