travelled away to Kirkley & Pakefield for a league fixture and came up against a determined and strong Pakefield side.
Yarmouth welcomed the return of Archie Wallis after a long lay off with injury, but were without there defender Kyle Swift
Owen Copeland was in
goal and once again made some good important saves. Thomas Sims played his first game at the back for the young Bloaters and
put in an excellent performance. Callum Oliver, Callum Aizlewood , Bobby Jex & Archie Wallis had good games in the midfield
and Thomas Hunter worked well up top.
This game was an exciting
contest with attacking play going from end to end and even through Yarmouth had the more possession and better chances, Pakefield
took their chances when it mattered. Yarmouth twice went behind but did show great character in getting back in the game
and then going on to nearly snatch all 3 points by hitting the bar twice and finding the Pakefield keeper in sensational form.
A good battling team performance. Scorers: Callum Aizlewood and Callum Oliver.

Bloaters 4, Waveney ‘A’ 1
The young Bloaters started this game unusually slowly and Waveney capitalized
by taking an early lead. It then took a penalty save from OJ to wake the Bloaters up and spur them back into life. Yarmouth
started to challenge with some good attacking play, and soon got themselves an equalizer, Thomas Hunter finding the net after
some good team play.
Yarmouth moved on from this and never really looked back. Callum Aizlewood then got his
name on the score sheet with a good finish as did Callum Oliver with a long range effort just before half time.
As the second half began, Yarmouth
continued to press a stubborn Waveney A, and finally got their fourth goal of the day when Callum Aizlewood finished off another
Yarmouth's team comprised of Owen Copeland in goal who is improving
week by week; Kyle Swift at the back with another solid performance; Callum Oliver & Callum Aizlewood who were instrumental in midfield as was Thomas Sims & Bobby Jex who once again had a great performance
on the right hand side of midfield; and Thomas Hunter who was up front and once again was a huge presence. Archie Wallis is
still currently out injured but is close to a return.
MOM: Bobby Jex, (Correction on last weeks scorers Bobby Jex did find
the back of the net). Good team performance and all players shown great character.

10, Hemsby Hornets B 0
Great Yarmouth Town U9 hosted Hemsby Hornets B
in the 1st round of the knockout cup at the weekend. After a two week layoff Yarmouth
turned up with a depleted side through injuries and Illness, and started the game with only 5 boys.
Owen Copeland was in goal and his second half performance
was probably the best he has had for the club. Callum Oliver & Callum Aizlewood once again were outstanding as was Bobby
Jex who is really gaining confidence with another great performance. Thomas Hunter was also outstanding and had his best game
for a while. Thomas Sims, who was unwell, did come on midway through the first half to not let the team down and he put in
a good sturdy performance.
Yarmouth dominated this game from start to finish scoring at regular intervals and also playing the sort of passing and moving slick football that gets you noticed at the
highest level. There was some lovely one and two touch play between all boys.
The goal scorers were, Thomas Hunter ( 6 ), Bobby Jex (2) &
Callum Aizlewood (2).

BLOATERS 2, RANGERS A 2
This was a thoroughly entertaining football
unbeaten in league football for over a year, dominated in terms of chances, but a resilient, good hard-working Rangers A kept
them at bay.
Yarmouth set about the match creating some good chances but just couldn't find the net. Midway
into the first half Rangers scored from a well-taken free-kick and soon doubled
their lead just before half time to send Yarmouth in at the
break 0-2 behind.
In the second half Yarmouth stepped up a gear and created numerous chances that either hit a post or the bar,
and had chances cleared off the line or saved by some good goalkeeping. Yarmouth
did eventually pull a goal back when Callum Oliver hammered a free kick into the back of the net and soon after another spell
of pressure Archie Wallis crossed for Bobby Jex to fire home against his former club to make it 2-2.
further chances go begging and there was some good Yarmouth
defending and goalkeeping from OJ at the end when Rangers attacked.
For the Bloaters, Yarmouth had Owen Copeland in
goal making some good saves throughout the match; Kyle Swift at the back is getting stronger and stronger with some excellently-timed
challengers; the midfield again of Callum Oliver and Callum Aizlewood, both of whom put in top class performances, and Bobby
Jex & Archie Wallis who is proving to be an excellent signing; the front two of Thomas Hunter & Thomas Sims also put
themselves about very well.
This match was a good advertisement for youth football
- well done to both teams.

BOHEMIANS 0, BLOATERS 7
Great Yarmouth Town U9
started this season's league campaign in sensational form. The opening fixture saw the young Bloaters face a tricky away game
against a battling Bohemians side. Yarmouth's team comprised of Owen Copeland in goal, Kyle Swift at the back, a midfield
quartet of Callum Aizlewood, Callum Oliver, Thomas Sims and Bobby Jex, and a front two of Thomas Hunter and new
signing Archie Wallis who had a great debut game.
Yarmouth controlled this
game from start to finish and were immediately playing some fantastic flowing passing and moving football: the boys vision
and range of passing was a joy to watch. Yarmouth opened the scoring after 6 minutes when a good move saw Thomas Hunter
score a well-taken goal. This lead was soon doubled when Callum Aizlewood drilled home. Callum Oliver, playing some neat football
on the right, nicked in to make it 3-0 just before the break.
Yarmouth started the
second half in similar fashion. OJ snuffed out a Bohs attack to clear forward for Callum Aizlewood to wrong foot the impressive
Bohs keeper and claim his second of the game. Yarmouth soon made it 5 when a unlucky Bohs player diverted a cross
into his own net, Archie Wallis then got on the score sheet with a rasping effort that looped over the goalkeeper & Callum
Oliver completed the scoring with his second of the game after another neat move.
Kyle and Bobby Jex when
called upon at the back put in some excellent challenges, neat composed passing and good forward runs, and the midfielders
also had great games. Callum Oliver on the right flank made some excellent runs and crosses, and Thomas Sims was a tower of
strength in the middle with some strong challenges and good passing. Callum Aizlewood again was 'Mr Consistent' playing out
on the left: his range of passing and runs were causing all sorts of trouble. Archie Wallis had a great debut buzzing around
all over the pitch breaking up opposition moves, starting moves, and also showing great technique and passing when on the
ball. Thomas Hunter once again proved to be a handful up front with some good movement, passing and shooting.
A great performance by
all boys today.
