York Schools Under-11s football team gained revenge for last season's defeat when they beat Nottingham 2-1 in a friendly at Wigginton.

Nottingham put York under early pressure but they weathered the storm with the defence of Mark Wilson, Will Holmes, Josh and Charlie Metcalfe working well as a unit.

Good work down the wings from Andrew Vis and Scott Nicols relieved some of the pressure and led to a penalty for York when Nicols was brought down. Carl Stewart slotted home the spot kick.

The visitors soon levelled from a volley to make the half-time score 1-1.

The second half saw York dominate with Liam Simpson controlling play from midfield. Then a long pass from Charlie Metcalfe and pressure by Dale Hunt caused a Nottingham defender to put the ball into his own net to hand York victory.

Five substitutes, Jamie Williamson, Adam Jones, Danny Penrose, Mick Elson and Dan Smith caused problems in the last 15 minutes, while skilful runs by Adam Jones and Phil Walters should have resulted in goals for York.

Manager Adam Cooper said: "This was a tremendous victory. The Under-11 team are becoming an exciting and hard-working attractive footballing side."

York Schools Under-12s drew 0-0 against Nottingham while the Under-14s lost 3-1 to Calderdale.

The Under-11s' next game is a training match against Dunnington Under-12s on Saturday. Full squad needed, meet at Dunnington at 9.30am. No subs needed, no shirt and tie, but bring sponsor money.
