Great Yarmouth Town U9, 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 through illness.
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 flowing move.


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.

KO Cup


Great Yarmouth Town U9 progressed through to the Quarter Finals with a comfortable and convincing display. Yarmouth once again only had the bare bones. Owen Copeland in goal once again played very well when called upon; Kyle Swift was outstanding at the back making some very tough and precise challenges; Bobby Jex, Callum Oliver & Thomas Sims where instrumental in midfield, linking the play excellently; and Thomas Hunter was awesome up top with some very unselfish play and quality passing. Archie Wallis & Callum Aizlewood were unavailable due to injury & leave.


Yarmouth from the start played some outstanding one and two touch passing football and carved the hard working Bohs open on numerous waves of attacking football which really was a joy to watch. Yarmouth scored at regular intervals to reach the Quarters while holding very firm at the back. Scorers Thomas Sims (3), Thomas Hunter (2), Callum Oliver (2). MOM:Whole Team for an excellent team display.

Great Yarmouth 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).

Sunday 28th September 2008



This was a thoroughly entertaining football match. Yarmouth, 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.


 Yarmouth saw 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.

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.
