Two wins and two losses was the story for Nottingham’s representative sides a week last Saturday. The Under 11s entertained Sheffield at Highfields in a Junior Star League game of three 20 minute periods, the first of which ended at 1-1 with the visitors going ahead after 10 minutes and Kye Wade chipping the Sheffield keeper to put the City level. It was the same story in the second period with Carnell Thompson scoring Nottingham’s equaliser. A fine volley by Dorian Sulkowski and a further goal from Thompson put the City ahead and although Sheffield scored again, the home side held on for a 4-3 win.

The Under 13s were also in League action at Calderdale and lost 4-1 being unable to handle the home side’s powerful striker who scored a hat-trick. Nottingham’s goal came as an early equaliser with Oskar Deptula converting a free-kick by Lynden Joyce. The Under 15s also met Calderdale in a friendly game and had no substitutes. Stand-in keeper Lewis Erasmus did well but Nottingham found themselves trailing 0-4 just after half-time. Nottingham fought back well and after a scrambled goal from Tariq Martin, Tewo Nyreienka missed a penalty before making amends from open play but despite late pressure from Nottingham, Calderdale hung on to their 4-2 lead.

The Under 14 side continued their fine form with an 11-0 win over an outclassed Wakefield team in a friendly match with Shakarl Shand and Dejanie Campbell both scoring four goals while Diego Edwards with two and Jakub Neimczyk completed the rout.
