Well done to our Under 17s who came through a tough day of fixtures with only four outfield players winning three games from three.
Peterborough started the day against Kings Lynn who was the guest team of the day but even though this would go down as a friendly and a 10-0 Peterborough win we needed to start off in the correct manner and treat the game like any other. And the team responded to the Coaches pleads and played a high tempo game moving the ball and moving into space Peterborough would eventually come out with an 11-0 win against good Kings Lynn team.
The second game was against a Letchworth team that pipped us to the Under 15 title last year. Peterborough controlled the first half and probably should have been more ahead than the two-goal advantage they had at the break. Letchworth played better in the second half and got a goal back to make it 2-1 Peterborough, however, rolled their sleeves up and kept creating chances and they eventually got the third goal they needed and then a fourth was scored at the end Peterborough ended up winning the game against a fancied Letchworth team 4-1 with all four outfield players scoring one each.
The third and final game of the day was against ECU Gold Peterborough dominated the opening 8 minutes or so but it was ECU that came the closest to a goal hitting the inside of the post the ball somehow rolled across the face of the goal and how Tyler did not put it in his own net nobody knows. The deadlock was eventually broken and within minutes, it was 3-0 Peterborough. The score was kept down through the heroics of Ely goalkeeper (JoJo) who was doing his best to keep shot after shot out of his net. Peterborough would go on to win the game 6-1 a perfect start to their Under 17 season.
