Harriers Claim First Win of the SeasonPosted on May 5, 2015Fleet Town Colts Harriers 5 Hersham Youth 2 The Harriers may have left it until the penultimate match of the season to record their first victory but it was well worth the wait. Some stylish play from the Harriers saw them record a convincing win against Hersham this morning. The opening goal was scored by Ollie who bravely met a through ball that looked to be going out, followed promptly by a collision with the post which saw him have to leave the field of play for the rest of the game. The Harriers then missed a chance to double their lead after a push on James in the penalty area from which James saw the resulting penalty saved. Undeterred the Harriers extended their lead with some nice individual play from Bryn who saw his shot parried but then steered it goal-bound. Hersham then pulled one back from a well taken goal at the near post. The Harriers continued to press and were awarded a free kick 25 yards from goal when Harry was fouled. Max stepped up and unleashed a fantastic shot into the top left hand corner. After some strong words at half time the Harriers came out determined to claim their first win of the season but Hersham stood firm and grabbed a second following a strong run from their central midfielder. Dan then hooked a ball home from Max's corner and the Harriers began to believe the win was in their grasp. James rounded off the scoring with a fine goal beating two players before slotting the ball past the keeper. Great win Harriers. Man of the Match - Connor Effort Award - Ollie
Frimley Prove too Strong for HarriersPosted on February 19, 2015Fleet Town Colts U13 Harriers 1 Frimley Green Piranhas 9 The Harriers faced a tough challenge today against SPL Division 1 table-toppers Frimley Green who have won 14 games and scored an impressive 92 goals this season. The confidence of Frimley was immediately evident from kick-off but the Harriers stood firm and were still well in it at the break despite being two goals down. As the second half began Frimley showed just why they have lost only two games all season as they stretched their lead by another two with a couple of unfortunate defensive errors from the Harriers. With Frimley continuing to press they went on and added to their tally eventually making it 9 goals. Not all bad though as the Harriers grabbed a consolation with arguably the best goal of the match – a lovely pass and move display starting in the centre of midfield capped off by a lovely strike from Eddie. This has been a tough season for the Harriers but they are still able to have a laugh and smile at the end of the game – well done boys, keep going.

Harriers Stage Strong Comeback to Share the PointsPosted on February 8, 2015Fleet Town Harriers 2 Guildford City Gladiators 2 After last week’s disappointing defeat and deterred by a change in pitch the Harriers began today’s game with a renewed determination. With the morning sun shining down on Peter Driver, and a new 4-2-3-1 formation employed, the Harriers set about their usual attractive passing play and were unlucky to fall behind to an early goal from a Guildford City corner. Not put off by the early set-back the Harriers came back strongly with a good finish by Dan from a ball over the top from Max. Half-time and it was all square. The central defensive pairing of James and Kieron was looking solid with Roscoe and Connor both giving steely displays at right and left full-back positions respectively. Once again Guildford City took the lead with a well taken goal from outside of the box. Still determined to get something out of the game the Harriers moved the ball about well and mounted a series of attacks to no avail until Connor’s neat pass to Ollie up the left hand-side saw the Harriers’ new recruit take a mazy run up the wing, bring it inside and then calmly slot it in the far right corner past the outstretched reach of the City keeper. What a superb individual goal from Ollie. With the watching spectators sensing an upset was on the cards the Harriers kept going but in the end had to settle for a point a piece. A great team effort with the Harriers really starting to demonstrate what they are capable of. Keep it going boys, onwards and upwards to the next game. Man of the match – Connor for a great assist and never giving the City striker a kick all game Effort Award – Ollie – what a goal and a very strong performance out on the wing.View older reports →
