Our under 18s were back in action today and didn't have to travel far to play local rivals Poole Town. A contested first half, saw the hammers fall one goal behind, with Poole maintaining their lead until halftime. However the second half saw a renewed spirit from the young hammers as we camped in Poole half for long periods of the second 45 minutes.. The pressure paid off with a stunning effort from Harry Vanderweele stepping forward from left back to unleash a thunderous shot passed the despairing keeper.
The hammers kept up the pressure, but were unable to find the winning goal, but the performance was one to be proud of.
Next week sees the U18s vs Ringwood town in Hampshire cup..
